Plane Scare

Filed under: Government — Bunker @ 4:19 pm

By now, most of you have heard the story of the plane flying over DC. Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey is upset that they’ve never had any drills for evacuating the Capitol. Neil Cavuto (one of my favorites) takes him and others to task:

To me, you sounded more concerned that you had to exit with the minions, than the fact that you and the minions survived.

Neil is right. Can you imagine all these self-important Senators being rushed out of session only to find out they were involved in a drill? I’m sure the good senator from New Jersey means there should be evacuations drills on a regular basis–such as when Congress isn’t in session. Once all the minions know how to act, the senators can simply follow their lead in a real emergency.
