Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy said on Wednesday that Congressional dysfunction is so bad at this point that it's keeping extra-terrestrials from contacting us.

“We’ve got to stop looking like the Jerry Springer show up here,” Sen. Kennedy said, according to Igor Bobic. “That’s why the aliens won’t talk to us. They’re saying, these people, they’re thirteen year olds, OK?”

Kennedy is referring to the stalled talks on a budget agreement that could potentially force a government shutdown.
