Old Bald Liberal Jews Mistake Congressional Debate For WWE Ring (Video)

Brad Sherman and Howard Berman are almost indistinguishable. They are old liberal Jewish Democrats who both voted for the Iraq war (but still try to ding the other for voting for the Iraq war? Come on, guys), and they are both sitting members of Congress representing Los Angeles’s San Fernando Valley. (You remember the Valley from movies like Valley Girl and songs like, um, Valley Girl.) But then a quirk of fate (or the redistricting commission) forced them to run against each other for a newly created seat, and now it is like a comedic Hollywood movie! Yesterday, shortly before Joe Biden raped poor Paul Ryan in his bottom, the two candidates met for some quality get-in-your-facetime, and Brad Sherman basically tried to headlock Howard Berman while shouting at him “YOU WANNA GET IN MY FACE?” and some other stuff, like George W. Bush pretending he was Hud and shouting “You wanna go mano-a-mano old man???” And then an alert copper (we presume he’s a sheriff’s deputy, based on his uniform) was like, you know, I think I will do some keeping of the peace. Gentlemen? Please stop the manhandling. BOO! Read more on Old Bald Liberal Jews Mistake Congressional Debate For WWE Ring (Video)…

Congress To Maybe Legalize Online Gambling For Your Uncle Ron

Congress likes to spend money. But sometimes they also think, “Wait, do we have any money?” And then they come up with an idea to make themselves a cool $20 or so, and then they get back to spending lots of money. We are witness to one such idea right now. Though they banned it just four years ago, the House Financial Services Committee let a bill go forward yesterday that would legalize online poker and other betting that is not on sports so that it can be taxed. And now, because of this vice, our children will be saved from debt forever. Read more on Congress To Maybe Legalize Online Gambling For Your Uncle Ron…

Hot date! Southern gentleman and rhetorician REP. JOE WILSON (R-SC) has been given the honor of escorting German Chancellor-Frau ANGELA MERKEL to the 20th annual Berlin Wall Ball. But will Joe be ready for the big night? Where will he find a corsage that compliments Angela’s captivating blue eyes?

He’s got those happy feet, moves with the music … Read more on The Pentagon Sewer Monster Is Watching You, And Joe Wilson Is Hired As A Male Escort…
 

Brad Sherman: Protecting Your Family From the Robot Menace

The House Science Committee, seen here in a file photograph. It’s tough competition, but the House Science Committee has got to be the goofiest of all Congressional committees. Putting a bunch of House members in a room to talk about science education and funding is like appointing Tomás de Torquemada to head a study group on religious tolerance. Thankfully, no one really pays much attention to them. Except for, you know, those poor schmucks whose livelihoods are affected by their doings. Like the good folks at Inside Higher Ed, who report back from a recent meeting with this heartening story: Read more on Brad Sherman: Protecting Your Family From the Robot Menace…

Stephen Colbert’s Bipartisan Outreach Effort

Earlier this afternoon, a Capitol Hill source advised us: Stephen Colbert is sitting in a conference room in the Cannon House Office building interviewing a Member of Congress — I could only see the back of the Member’s head so I can’t be certain of the identity — it may be Brad Sherman (D-CA). The Member is in on the joke, whoever it is, as Colbert did a number of takes opening the door to let a faux pizza delivery guy into the room.

D-CA ISO…

The Hill reports at one more lonely Congressman has resorted to online personals in his attempt find some love for his Member. Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) was attempting to discreetly find cloture through JDate when his erstwhile quarry alerted the media to his missives, whose plaintive, “I’m a Congressman, don’t hurt me,” earnestness gives him a slight Lloyd Dobler feel: “I regret my bio does not divulge much, but as it happens, I am a member of Congress. One of my colleagues posted a revealing bio on J-date only to see it published as a ‘news’ story in his hometown newspaper.” Read more on D-CA ISO……
