Stupid Republican Senatorial Tricks

posted by Bill Arnett @ 11:32 AM Permalink

Showing once again that the country would be better off if Republicans just took up turning tricks on street corners rather than pulling stupid tricks in the Senate with Democratic complicity, Senator Coleman (R-Fiscally Insane) proposed, and got passed, a $100-million amendment to the pending Military Construction bill.

The amendment does nothing for military or any other kind of construction, but by golly it provides $100,000,000.00 to provide security for the two parties during the 2008 conventions.

WTF? Multi-billion dollar businesses (and yes, they are businesses with the aim of getting their candidate in office) shouldn't need a dime from the taxpayer when these jerk-offs want to party, drop balloons, tie up traffic and city resources, etc., etc., etc., while more kids than ever are going to bed hungry, millions more having lost their jobs and/or health insurance, and bush threatening to veto anything that doesn't cut off more and more people from needed services.

Oh, yeah, Congress is really "fiscally responsible" to cut public services and programs while adding pure pork to a totally unrelated bill to make sure they can spend every penny possible just for their own self-aggrandizement. They already spend more money than a crack wh0re vacationing in Bolivia.

If they can't design and pay for their own convention security, what business do they have claiming to be "experts" in the security needs of the country?
