Stupidity thy name is Congress

April 13, 2010

Congress accidentally strips itself of health care because no one could be bothered to actually read the bill.

In other words, theoretically the law kicks them out of the federal health plan now in order to force them to join insurance exchanges … that don’t exist yet. Looking forward to tomorrow, when we’re inevitably told that they meant to do that. Exit question for lawyers: Who would have standing to sue to force the federal health plan to drop Congress now? Any citizen, or is it more refined than that?

10 reasons Obama is the most naive president in US History.

Writers get a smack in the head with the clue bat. I have read the advice and decided to go ahead and submit my series about the high school prom queen who is actually a 700 year old male vampire who not only sparkles in the sunlight but glows in the dark, and who accidentally saved the vampire kingdom from a supremely powerful vampire who was cast into the outer darkness and is now returning to seek revenge. Somewhere I will work in a mechanical owl, a flying horse, and a big squid monster destroying a major city just to round things out.

Scott Brown rolls again

This afternoon, the Senate voted to end the filibuster of the legislation to extend unemployment benefits and COBRA, which affected hundreds of thousand of Americans:

The 60-34 vote killed a GOP filibuster against debating the measure, which would extend benefits through the end of the month.

Four Republicans — Sens. Scott Brown of Massachusetts, George Voinovich of Ohio, and Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine — voted with Democrats to move the bill forward.

I don’t really know much about this vote, but this is becoming a habit with Brown and it was easily predictable.

Sarah Palin makes $12,000,000 in speaking fees. – It seems like just last year that people were ridiculing her for not being able to make money doing appearances.

    I’m not sure if this is my computer or the links themselves, but everytime I click on one of the links on this post, my computer logs off the internet. It’s probably my computer, but I thought I should let you know.

      I tried testing it myself. No problems, but I will keep it in mind. Thanks
