This morning I ventured over to CSpin 1 to see what nefarious schemes and gamesmanship might be going on in the Capitol.
Much to my surprise, I learned that GOP congresscritters know how to read.
They are wasting the morning reading the US Constitution out loud, including all amendments. Unfortunately, I missed the sections about slavery.
It is an awesome sight. Seeing more than a hundred congresscritters, appearing nicely groomed, primped, and sharing the backbreaking task of - - - reading a piece of paper.
It would help if they took those words seriously. It would be nice if this was a little more than a utter waste of time, a gimmick, a joke on the American people.
One more thing. I cannot believe that they got Bonner, and not Boehner, to read the Repeal Amendment.
Are they discussing VA benefits for soldiers and vets? No.
Are they fixing the Debt Limit? No.
Are they discussing how to fix loopholes for the ultra rich? No.
Are they considering investment in infrastructure, as more than 10,000 bridges are nearing collapse? No.
Are they funding necessary emergency aid for Sandy victims? No.
Are they looking at gun control after the Newtown Massacre? No.
Are they picking lint out of their navels, as they flatulently waste their time, our money, and CSPin electrons? Yes.
