Oh, sure—Senators Durbin (D-IL) and Cornyn (R-TX) go streaking through the Capitol, lashing interns left and right with leather thongs in observance of Lupercalia, and everyone grins and laughs at “crazy ol’ Dick and John” and their “wacky shenanigans”. But when Bear Lawyer gives an impassioned defense of the National Endowment for the Arts, including audience-aided reproductions of select scenes from the works of William Shakespeare, it’s nothing but tears and screaming and “Help! Help! Senator Paul’s been stabbed!”
Honestly, now. Someone had to play the part of Julius Caesar.
