I posted this to my Vox blog yesterday, if you want a little piece of faith renewal then I highly recommend it. John Murtha is what John McCain should be. Notice that in the 40+ seconds he's speaking in response to Sen. Louie Gohmert (R-Bitchslapped), he never loses his cool, he never gets indignant, he just throws an invisible bag of Patches O'Houlihan wrenches right at Gohmert's chrome dome and embarrasses the everliving SHIT out of him. It's just beautiful, that's all.

Cheap Shot of flagrant asshatery #1: The backstabbing lead-up to impugning a decorated veteran's character and judgements.
Cheap Shot of flagrant asshatery #2: Calumniously throwing out Coulteresque aspersions like "...if he had HIS way we'd all be speaking Japanese or German by now...".
Reaping what you sow when that veteran turns around and shoves your face in your own shit = PRICELESS.
For everything else, there's Murtha.

Stupid Ass Of The Week: Lynn Westmoreland

Welcome to the first series of Stupid Ass Of The Week! This week's feature is kicked off with the Republican from my own district, the überstarched Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA; 8th District), who in a recent interview with Stephen Colbert could only stammer through three of the 10 Commandments. Transcript:
Colbert: You have not introduced a single piece of legislation since you entered Congress.

Westmoreland: That's correct.

Colbert: This has been called a do nothing Congress. Is it safe to say you're the do nothingest?

Westmoreland: I, I, ..Well there's one other do nothiner. I don't know who that is, but they're a Democrat.

Colbert: What can we get rid of to balance the budget?

Westmoreland: The Dept. of Education.

Colbert: What are the Ten Commandments?

Westmoreland: You mean all of them?--Um... Don't murder. Don't lie. Don't steal Um... I can't name them all.
