I first thought this would be a good idea for Congress, but I bet a lot of Republicans are angry drunks.

I think we should instead install pot smoking clubs, massage parlors, and heroin shooting galleries near the congressional cafeteria.  Make X tablets available all over the place like they were breath mints.

Any member who doesn't partake on a regular basis gets put in the "pussy caucus" and taken off any committee assignments until they loosen the fark up.

It couldn't make the voting record any worse, and it would make C-Span the most watched channel on TV

/Bath salts for committee chairpersons, just for fun.

What the hell is the point of parliamentary immunity then?

He resigned from the Army in 2009, accusing the military of being sexist and racist

Why did you join the army then?

I'll bet John Boehner is an insufferable prick on the golf course, the kind of guy you would ditch at the turn if not before.

I think we buy enough stuff for them without giving them an open bar.

Bar? Ha.

At least that's better than the Congressional pedowhorehouse.

Oh, sorry, I meant the Congressional Page Program.

Congress used to have bars in both houses in the 1800s. Civil wars don't just start up among sober people you know.

I thought drunken brawls were politics in Scotland.

Well, as noted in an article that came up on this very site earlier today, "While the Irish have one date to celebrate their country's abiding love of alcohol, the British have three: yesterday, today and tomorrow."
Incidentally, not only does Parliament have eight bars, but those bars don't actually need licences to serve alcohol - meaning that they are automatically exempt from any and all restrictions that their own patrons put on the country's licensing laws.

And here I thought that we had 435 Congressional bars.  With maybe another 100 Senatorial bars in their offices.

This was a point of significant anger not so many years ago when England had much more restrictive licensing hours (especially on Sunday) than it does now for everybody else, while MPs could get a drink any time of day or night.

It's always time for a snifter somewhere in the world.
