The difference between the Senate and the House of Lords

Well, sort of. I was reading this column by Mark Steyn from the Chicago Sun-Times (via Real Clear Politics) entitled "Condescending Democrats still don't get it". It includes this priceless passage:

In my time, I've known dukes, marquesses, earls, viscounts and other members of Britain's House of Lords and none of them had the contempt for the masses one routinely hears from America's coastal elites. And, in fairness to those ermined aristocrats, they could afford Dem-style contempt: A seat in the House of Lords is for life; a Senate seat in South Dakota isn't.

The capacity for humour inherent in some of the left-wing reactions, both in America in the world, is just stupendous.
