It’s certainly rare for a member of Congress only known for naming post offices to get much national attention, but our own Congressman, in his bold, lonely quest to defend tobacco companies from regulation and to prevent students from getting nutritious lunches managed to do just that.
Anson Kaye, for US News and World Report:
As if any more explanation is needed, Rehberg elaborates: “I hate to try and define the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist, between a sociologist and a geologist, but there clearly is a difference.”
That’s what hit me like a lightning bolt.
I mean, really. What is the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist? I sure don’t know, and I’m equally sure there’s no way to find out.
And the difference between a sociologist and a geologist? That’s bedeviled great thinkers since the antiquity. (I think a sociologist is some kind of flying saucer and a geologist may have to do with socks, but that’s just a guess, and I blurted it out because I’m panicked.)
Seriously, read and enjoy the whole piece.
