In a Senate hearing yesterday, the hon. gentelman from Texas, the Republican Mr. Gohmert, accused the witness, Attorney General Holder, of attacking his integrity and "casting aspersions on my asparagus."
It would have been sufficient for him to say, "Hey, buttwinkle, if you don't like my peaches stop shakin my tree," but he just had to go and drag asparagus into it. He could have added that Holder impugned his artichokes, but didn't go that far
Now I know he meant to say "aspersions on my character," but became tongue tied, as those Texans seem to do when they are in big time politics. Seems like it's always them with the peeance and freeance.
