The "I Was In The Bathroom" Rule

When the Soviet Union withdrew from Afghanistan, Politburo members asked how the foolish decision to send them in the first place came to be were known to demur: "I don't know. I was in the bathroom when the decision was made."

This is now to be our representatives' argument about how the ScaryCare bill no one wants happened to pass.

Don't call it the Slaughter rule, call it the, "I was in the restroom" rule.
