Oh yes, I surely bet the GOP wishes it could spring clean and rid itself of festering nabobs of negativity. Echoes of Spiro the Agnew.
Here are just a couple of the funnier things I ran across yesterday after posting that I didn’t want you to miss.
First off, according to Political Wire, a new Rasmussen poll shows that 43% of those polled believe that you could randomly pull names out of the phone book and have them serve in Congress and get more done. Nineteen percent “were not sure.”
And then there is our
favorite whipping boy best friend, Louis Gohmert. Louis, is of the opinion, and one uses that term quite loosely where Lou is concerned, that the Alaska Pipeline has been a boon to the caribou herd. It seems that the deer males, invite the girls to warm their hooves near the line, and along with a bit of paté and a good Bordeaux, the love sours and the herd increases. So thinks our Loopey Louie. LL had no ‘splanation for why the herd just doesn’t meander down to Texas and enjoy the warmth there all over.
We also get the following from Political Wire. You guys are all aware of the attempts of some GOPer’s to introduce legislation in various states to make a fertilized embryo a “life”, which created all sorts of scary scenarios, and even the folks of Old Mississippi decided that it was probably not such a good idea, and voted it down.
Well, another of those silly bills has been thrown in the hopper in Oklahoma. Trying desperately to show the dull state Republicans of their folly, Democratic State Senator Constance Johnson, offered this amendment:
“… any action in which a man ejaculates or otherwise deposits semen anywhere but in a woman’s vagina shall be interpreted and construed as an action against an unborn child.”
Beware the wet dream gentlemen, beware. And about those Penthouses? I’d burn ’em boys.
You might have heard. People thing Congress is a big pile of poo. They have an approval rating of only 10%. I think rocks have a better approval rating. I’m sure having your hip replaced scores higher. Having a root canal too. Running into Satan on the way to the grocery store scores 8% by the way. And no, I have no idea who those 8% are or where they live.
Nerd alert! A hypothesis is out there, that some of our greatest genetic weaknesses are also the basis of some of our greatest strengths. You can read more at Wired, and the author, who is writing a book on the subject, promises to make available his full article now appearing in the Atlantic, when it has passed out of its exclusivity clause. Worth a look at and a note to self to look it him up in a few weeks to read the entire article. What’s available now is worth the read.
I’m getting pissier by the moment. OrangeAde Boehner is spouting that the HHS ruling that hospitals and universities must provide women with contraceptive care as part of their health care, is “unconstitutional” and an “assault on religious freedom”. Well bozo, such laws, implemented in at least 28 states of the Union, have been upheld as constitutional you idiot. Furthermore, such laws have been in place for a DECADE and nobody said boo during the Bush Administration. And furthermore, the Civil Rights Commission has ruled that failing to provide such coverage when the company provides other prescription drug coverage, is a CIVIL RIGHTS VIOLATION.
So save me all the wringing of hands and the moaning that we are religion is being assaulted and we are on the way to becoming a Satanist haven. And you Joe Manchin, (D-WVA) take my foot up your fat ass. You have more poor women in your state than most and they desperately need all the help they can get. Said idiot has joined Rubio with a bill to block the HHS rule.
It’s something in the water I suspect. New Hampshire ReGigglicans are at it again with the stupid. Remember when they wanted all new legislation to cite to the portion of the Magna Carta they were addressed to? Well, another one of the brain-deficient GOPer’s has spent his time and taxpayer money on introducing a bill that will end the requirement that employers give their employees time for a lunch break. Ya know, because the kind CORPTOCRACY is so benevolent they will do it anyway. Isn’t that sweet? I guess he hadn’t heard of Wal-Mart and the 172 MILLION they were forced to pay for refusing to give employees a lunch break. There are others, but poor JR Hoell can’t read so what would be the point?
And what rogues gallery of too dumb to live would be complete without the ever stupid, ever jaw-droppingly/finger-waggy/insufferably arrogant/so awful his hair wants a new owner, Sean of Hannity, who has become so irrelevant as of late that he has taken to suggesting that the President never really wanted to kill Bin Laden at all.

It’s almost the weekend, and it’s Fajitas for dinner!
