  •  How many members of Congress would be kicked out (4+ / 0-)

    if they were required to remove their toupees?  Is wearing a rug the same thing as wearing a hat?  What is the difference?  How about a yarmulke?   Were the Founding Fathers who were elected to Congress required to remove their powdered wigs?   Aren't they in a sense also hats?   Are Jewish members of Congress required to remove them too?   Rule seems a little arbitrary to me.
