(1) Many hard working men are great fathers; something we all know, but the media continues to find amazing and rare. To be honest, though, I'm not sure how many hands-on, involved Dads you'll find in our Congress and U.S. Senate - the culture of that place (and in American politics in general) just doesn't support it. Which explains, really, why our family policies are what they are. These guys have never had to put their kids in bad schools or wondered how they will pay for health care. Most of them have rarely cleaned a dish. I doubt they have worked one full time job only to come home to a second full time job caring for their families. Maybe we should adjourn our government for a just a bit, and let them catch up on their real housework?
