Try sanity, and throw the bums out in November

I’d like to applaud The Signal’s editorial board for the Aug. 10 editorial “It’s time for new leadership.” It was right on the money.

It just amazes me that although we, the American people, are fed up with Congress, both the House and the Senate, we keep electing the incumbents.

The cliche “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” clearly fits the American electorate. All, or at least most, of us seem to be politically insane.

We keep electing people who are doing a lousy job and expecting them to improve. They don’t!

When, oh when, are we going to wake up and throw the bums out?

We need new faces in Washington, a lot of new faces. Could new people do any worse than what we have now? I doubt it.

I hope the voting public doesn’t come down with amnesia at election time. I hope we get over our insanity.
