What do we remember from 200 years ago? The burning of the White House?
According to Rep. Cummings, a courageous joke still searching for a punchline with a lantern and a scowl, this day when Democrats brought a convicted liar to lie on Capitol Hill is so memorable that it will be remembered 200 years from now.
“Today, I think, was a very important day. I tell my staff that 200 years from now people will be reading about this moment,” he told reporters. “We have a situation where we have strayed so far away from normal in our country. We’ve got to get back to center. And I think today was, at least, an opportunity to do that.”
People won’t remember Rep. Cummings 200 years from now. Or twenty years from now.
Nor will they remember the latest round of antics a week from now.
What President Trump is trying to do in Vietnam may still matter two centuries hence. Cummings’ desperate posturing won’t.
