What the - ?

CNN was authorized by their Corporate Masters to release this little article on their website. To sum up, it says that the GOP can't get shit passed in either house of Congress, even though they enjoy majority status in both houses, the Executive and the courts.

Granted, this is politics as usual, but it's a new high in low when a Republican committee has one member defect to the Democrats and seven(!) more no-show on the topic of a 4th of July resolution supporting the idea of "one nation under God."

And neither side can take much plesaure in the fact that the Voting Rights Act has so far failed to come up for renewal. Although it has bipartisan support in the leadership, Southern Republicans balked at allowing the courts to continue examining Southern voting practices.

I guess Jim Crow's dead, huh?

The question was rhetorical.

We can do better than this, people, and it makes me ashamed to consider myself a Republican.

In other news, huge bones and tusks were dug up by a highway crew (I'd link to it, but it's a video clip on CNN). Expect the Christian Fascisti (Creationist Brainwashing Branch) to either ignore the discovery or explain it away by citing the Biblical verse that "there were giants on the earth in those days."

Our govt. is in a quagmire. Can't find their asses in the dark or in the light with a map.

They can however find bush's ass and kiss it whenever necessary.
