The Acid Test

These aren't the political pages but some things are too funny/ or sad to pass up whatever your denomination.

The US Congress works in wondrous ways. Each congressperson is entitled to sit on two committees. In earlier times they called that a make work project, but today it has become as fixed as faith, much life universal health care for legislators. With 435 Congressional members that makes for a lot of make work projects, for even congressmen come with a bell curve of aptitude. Some dumb, some dumber, with an odd gift to mankind thrown in every generation or two. In their infinite wisdom, once upon a time, congressional leadership created a committee to shelter their neanderthals in one place, The House Science, Space and Technology Committee.

My idiot congressman, a member of the Science, Space and Technology committee, Todd Akin has been in the news this campaign season for his views on legitimate rape and female reproductivity. Todd claims a doctor told him so. The doctor, Congressman Paul Broun MD from Georgia is a fellow Science, Space and Technology member.

At a campaign meeting at the Liberty Baptist Church of Hartwell, Georgia  Congressman Broun MD had this to say,

"God's word is true, I've come to understand that. All that stuff I was taught about evolution and embryology and the Big Bang Theory, all that is straight from the pit of hell. And it's lies to try to keep all the folks who are taught that from understanding that they need a savior."

Let us give thanks Congressmen Broun and Akin are formulating national policy, instead of .....

Congressman Broun is running unopposed. Akin is running for Senate.

thanks for clarifying that Toda. that's it then, i've made up my mind...i'm voting for claire mccaskill for another term. you know, because the fact that her husband was cutting business deals IN THE US SENATE DINING ROOM, under the cover of her influence as a US SENATOR, is not a corruption or anything major.

He handed Claire any number of clubs, and she's proceeded to beat his ass with them. And its been hilarious to watch.

But mostly I'm sick of the whole process. I'm SO ready for it to be done.

And we have Dianne Feinstein in California. She lists assets of at least $42 million but still draws a $58,000 annual pension from the city of San Francisco. How can you do that and not lose your lunch?
