"President Obama didn't arbitrarily pick a date. It used to be March 4, but was changed to January 20. If the 20th is on a Sunday, he's still sworn in on that date, precisely at noon, and the next day is when the festivities are."

"Since when?"

"Since the passage of the 20th Amendment. That's the facts."

"What do facts have to do with anything!" Fishbottom retorted. "I'm a U.S. senator, and I say what the facts are.

"You can't impeach the First Lady. And even if you could what would be the charges?"

"She's too tall. Women are supposed to be shorter than men. It's God's Law. Says so right there in the Bible. Somewhere."
When I last saw Fishbottom, he was calmer, chatting with a couple of dozen of his Congressional colleagues, not planning to do anything other than convene a hearing that he hoped would lead to the end of recorded music--and an impeachment.
