You know, because the benghazi! Benghazi! BENGHAZI!!1! investigation turned out so well for them, why not have one does the same for Y’all Qaeda?
Last night I was joking around with Scissorhead Fran who suggested a caption contest for this pic. This was my suggestion, but I had no idea how accurate it was going to be.
And so now we have no more Weepy McDrunky to kick around, Agent Orange is now Orange Crush and so on. While it is true that he was as incompetent as they come, he also inherited the most disgraceful caucus probably in the history of The House.
The next few days should be interesting.
It seems no one likes a weepy drunk: FBI says John Boehner’s West Chester bartender planned to poison him
(And I swear to Blog that the ad that played before the video started was the Pimco guy with the sunburn!)
Well, it is autobiographical.
That poor little girl will never get the nicotine (and Jim Beam) out of that dress.
Just in time for the midterm elections:
“Americans learned this week that the Obama Administration is so intent on obstructing the truth about Benghazi that it is even willing to defy subpoenas issued by the standing committees of the People’s House. These revelations compel the House to take every possible action to ensure the American people have the truth about the terrorist attack on our consulate that killed four of our countrymen. In light of these new developments, the House will vote to establish a new select committee to investigate the attack, provide the necessary accountability, and ensure justice is finally served.
“The administration’s withholding of documents – emails showing greater White House involvement in misleading the American people – is a flagrant violation of trust and undermines the basic principles of oversight upon which our system of government is built. And it forces us to ask the question, what else about Benghazi is the Obama administration still hiding from the American people?
“The House committees that have been investigating this attack have done extraordinary work, using their subpoena power, holding dozens of hearings, and conducting hundreds of interviews. Without this work we would not know much that we do today. But it’s clear that questions remain, and the administration still does not respect the authority of Congress to provide proper oversight. This dismissiveness and evasion requires us to elevate the investigation to a new level. I intend for this select committee to have robust authority, and I will expect it to work quickly to get answers for the American people and the families of the victims.
“Four Americans died at the hands of terrorists nearly 20 months ago, and we are still missing answers, accountability, and justice. It’s time that change.”

Which can only mean that they have repealed and replaced Obamacare?

Honestly, Wingnuttia just cannot help themselves, they hate everyone:
Today John Boehner declared he opposes the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, and senior House GOP aides said the bill is unlikely to get a House vote — putting its passage in doubt.
And from the same article, an interesting number:
Nearly all recent opinion polls indicate that a large majority of the American public — more than 70 percent — supports efforts to make employment discrimination against gay men and and lesbians illegal…when we use national polls to estimate opinion by state, we find that majorities in all 50 states support ENDA-like legislation (note that in 1996, majorities in only 36 states supported ENDA). Today, public support ranges from a low of 63 percent in Mississippi to a high of 81 percent in Massachusetts.
The Speaker believes this legislation will increase frivolous litigation and cost American jobs, especially small business jobs,” Boehner spokesman Michael Steel said in an email Monday.
Equal rights are frivolous, eh?
So, you gotta wonder how big a dent there is on obvious anagram and GOP Chairman Reince Priebus’ forehead.
