Is he pro-caning on the floor of the Senate? Because I would vote for that platform.

The Centenarian is running for Congress as a write-in candidate for now.

So, he is "running" for this as much as I am then.... ok.

I misread that as 101 year old nuns for Congress.

I expect they might have trouble with Anti-Papist sentiment. Otherwise, it sounds like a great idea. I can't see any harm being done to the quality of debate in Congress if a few 101 year old nuns with good hearing and their wits about them were to be added to the mix of rich white old Republican reactionaries and rich white old not-quite-so-conservative Democrats.

You can do a lot more good with a prayer and a steel yard stick than you can do on a prayer alone.

I think I'd be okay with 101 year old nuns in congress beating the knuckles of other politicians with the edge (real nuns don't use the flat end) of a ruler whenever they say something inherently stupid and unhelpful.
