'Swamp' draining itself


  Donald Trump said he was going to drain the swamp in Washington if elected.  I don't know if he's the one draining the swamp of if the "swamp monsters" are doing themselves in.  I've always been a strong advocate of term limits, but it appears right now that what is limiting many of these folks careers is their own bad behavior. (Insert big smile here.)

With the recent resignations and now information coming out that there may be many more caught up in the dredging up of their past bad behavior, I can't help but find it really entertaining.  Whether it's a Democrat or Republican makes no matter to me and I think the sexual harassment allegations are just the beginning.  Soon it will be the in thing to bring up other issues like spending money on the wrong thing or petty crimes that have been covered up.  There must be a real terror in Congress of what the next shoe to hit the floor might be.  

     It also appears that a lot of the dirty or immoral deeds being uncovered are extending down into the ranks of senior civil servants.  Particularly FBI and Justice Department.  Oh well - all were talking about is the seniority of swamp monsters.  Time to thin out the herd.
