Regarding Dana Milbank’s July 21 Washington Sketch:

Please do not compare the atmosphere around Congress with “the gravitas of a middle school.” It is grossly unfair to the wonderful middle school students who have far more dignity and are far more serious (and accomplish quite a bit more) than the majority in Congress. I’ll wager the students would have remedied the debt crisis long ago and in a noticeably more collaborative manner.
