I may need to walk back on my scorn of Rep. Jackson-Lee’s praise of the non-existent relationship between the non-existent nations of North and South Vietnam. If this video below is any indication, then there’s a fairly nasty virus going around Capitol Hill that turns Democratic legislators into memory-impaired, babbling zombies.
Yes, you remember correctly: in point of fact Donald Berwick is not getting a confirmation hearing, largely because the President is too scared of what the GOP will say about this particular radical (and by extension, what the GOP will say about the President’s judgment in wanting to hire said radical). That’s one issue; the other is, apparently Senator Mikulski isn’t… really paying attention to her duties these days. It beggars belief that the senior Senator from Maryland is unaware of a top-tier controversy and cause for criticism, but it’s self-evident from the video that she didn’t have a clue and was operating largely on autopilot.
So. Brain fever, you think? It’s certainly a more charitable conclusion than the alternative, which is that she and Jackson-Lee are as about as sharp as a sack of wet mice.
PS: Although there is an alternate, admittedly out-there explanation: Rep. Jackson-Lee and Sen. Mikulski might be invaders from a parallel dimension who have infiltrated our universe and taken over the husks of selected legislators, in order to prepare for the inevitable attack. If true, I’m of two minds on this. On the one hand, obviously you have to be against invasions from alien dimensions. On the other hand… they’re apparently from an alternate history where the Democrats didn’t throw South Vietnam on the fire and do have the elementary courage to openly present their appointees for scrutiny, which makes them arguably an improvement over our current ruling class.
PPS: Cynthia Yockey likes Jim Rutledge; it’s embarrassing how little I’m following that Senate race, seeing as I live in Maryland and everything.

Rick Perry was one of the first Republicans to stand up and say, “No” when Donald Trump burst on to the scene. He recognized Trump for the fraud that he is and although he had to drop out early, he knew told people what damage Trump would do to | Read More »

As we slowly begin to lose our minds and our lives, watch us talk about Donald Trump’s win, the lessons we have all learned, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and so much | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Remember Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Bill Shuster? The head of the House Transportation Committee who is pushing a bill to hand air traffic control to a bunch of airline industry cronies and unions, and doing it in a way that looks like it would allow them— not Congress— to raise your taxes if they think that’s neat and cool? The guy | Read More »
