Was Groucho a member of our Congress when he sang: "Whatever it is, I'm against it...?"

It’s hard to take seriously foreign policy talk in our Congress after learning, some weeks ago, that Silvestre Reyes, the Democratic nominee to head the House Intelligence Committee, couldn’t tell a Shiite from a Sunni. So my suggestion to the bloviators on the floor of our Congress, debating the Iraq War with the intelligence of Margaret Dumont herself, is they should give up it all up, kick back and watch the greatest of all war movies… then maybe it will be all over and someone will tell them what a Shiite is… hopefully without a knife to their throats.
