Sketches in Reality

A quote about Wednesday's evacuation of the capitol: "Police, rushing to get House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi out of the building, lifted her out of her shoes."

Sounds like a british comedy sketch. I see all these serious armed men, scrambling into the Capitol building and down the congressional aisles, and pairing off to lift each of the members of Congress by their elbows. The members of Congress, frozen stiff as boards would then be carefully re-assembled on a lawn somewhere and resume business.
