John Boehner (R-Ohio) looks like he is about to yield the remainder of his time to a tanning salon. How does a guy from Ohio get so damn tan? And how does a guy with a tan get elected to a public office in Ohio? It just doesn't add up.
Now CBS News's Bob Fuss is providing commentary while the vote happens.
I think it would be great if the newly elected members of Congress had to go through hazing during the lame duck session.
Now Rep. Henry "Bobby" Bonilla is kissing Tom Delay's ass.
Now Tom DeLay is ranting about how evil the Democrats are.
Now John "Dr." Doolittle (R-California) is waving some piece of paper around and talking about what a great man Tom DeLay is and what a witch hunt this whole thing is.
Now John "Gary" Carter (R-Texas) is saying the same crap. They are all pissed at some Democratic Rep. named Bell. I should probably know who that is.
Now Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee) is getting a chance to dis Rep. Chris Bell. This is quite a steamy posse session, everyone is gettting a turn. Who's up next...
David Dreier (R-California) is saying that this was an attack on every member of the institution of Congress. This is stupid because they have my attention but they aren't explaining what was so terrible about all of this. I've watched 6 people get up and jam on the microphone and I still don't know what the heck they are talking about.
John Linder (R-Georgia) is blowing more hot air.
In other news, 3 Republicans voted against the Education for Individuals with Disabilities Bill. That's touching, inspiring even. Because when you think about it, it's so condescending to have a special bill just to help people with disabilities get an education. Disabled people should learn to take care of themselves just like every other red-blooded American. If they weren't so lazy they probably wouldn't be disabled in the first place. I'd like to see one of those Republicans write a bill for people with disabilities that was more representative of the American spirit of persistence and individuality...
