Remember the old question that asked whether you knew where your kids were at such-and-such a time? Now Indiana voters can be reasonably asked where their senator was at such-and-such a time inasmuch he didn't know himself.
That can only be a reference to Sen. Dan Coats, the right-wing Republican from Indiana who drew a lot of attention from congressional watchers by sitting down to question a witness at an Appropriations subcommittee hearing. It must have been a little awkward for everybody as he began his inquiry until his aide sent him a note alerting Coats that he had chosen the wrong hearing. "I've got the right room number," he then abruptly explained, "'but the wrong hearing".
That one, folks, surpassed a snafu during the last presidential campaign in which Sarah Palin's robocall began, "Hello, Texas. I'm Sarah Palin."
Problem: The calls were all sent to Kansas.
And John McCain wanted her to be our vice president!
