Sometimes you just have to relieve the tension with a little trolling. Earlier this afternoon I looked up Jim Jordan’s website and then called one of his Ohio offices. I said to the woman who answered the phone:
“Hello. I am looking at the Congressman’s impressive website, and I read his bio. I could not find any mention of his military service, but I felt sure he served. Can you tell me which branch of the military he served in?”
She replied, rather curtly, “He did not serve. He went to college.”
“Oh,” I said, “I guess he had bone spurs” and hung up.
