Here are a couple stories that I find amusing. First, it appears that Democrat Senators can’t count, and think that American peons…I mean, citizens…smell funny. Take a look. In whining about Republican ‘filibusters’ over the past few months, Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid used the following visual aids:
The Democrats seem to have a living, breathing definition of the word filibuster. It seems if the Democrats block judicial nominations, Reid and Schumer count it as a Republican filibuster. If Chris Dodd, Democrat from Connecticut, filibusters the FISA reform bill, Reid and Schumer count that as a Republican filibuster. If Democrats vote unanimously or near-unanimously with the Republicans to uphold a filibuster and beat a bill, as has happened on almost a dozen occasions, that counts as a Republican filibuster.
Harry Reid added the following statement:
“Mr. President, someone wanting to visit the Capitol today, there is no place for them to gather. They gather -it used to be out on the East Front – now they gather on the West Front. And the people who work here joke about you can always tell when it’s summertime because you can smell the visitors. And what we mean by that Mr. President – they stand out there in the high humidity, heat, sweating, and it’s really – there’s no place for them to go. The bathrooms in this facility are almost nonexistent. There is one on this side, one on the other side, both very small.”
Classy. It’s too bad the stench of the citizenry is too much for the good Senator to bear. Otherwise, he might actually spend time with some citizens and improve his status as the leader of the worst Congress in history.
Also, the New York Times had yet another disastrous quarter, coming in 90% short of expectations. It couldn’t be because they’re little more than a radical Left-loving, Bush-hating, anti-American propaganda machine, could it? Nah.
There’s my two cents.
