I have heard that fruits and nuts so many times but back in 1960 one of my former students who had enlisted in the Navy and, of course, did some of his training in San Diego said he never wanted to go back to the land of "queers and steers" again. Both terms fit that place so very well, IMO.
There is a possibility that progressives will have taken over our government and rewritten our constitution to allow people who belong to the proper party to be in the Senate at any age. Now that is a very scary idea, but quite possible.
