Guess Which Whiny Crybaby Congressjerk Wants A Pay Raise This Time

Congress
Just to prove that Republicans do not have a monopoly on dick moves, Florida Rep. Alcee Hastings, who is ostensibly a Democrat — the kind who won’t campaign against Republicans — is the latest member of Congress to whine about how underpaid he is, it’s so unfair, members of Congress can barely survive on their six-figure salaries, waaaaaaaah: Read more on Guess Which Whiny Crybaby Congressjerk Wants A Pay Raise This Time…

Hasn’t Moran’s Jerk Son Suffered Enough Through ‘Embarrassing Situation’ Of Beating Up Girlfriend?

Virginia Congressman Rick Jim* Moran’s jerk son, Patrick, has pleaded guilty to an “embarrassing situation” of slamming his girlfriend’s head into a metal trash can grate. You may remember Patrick from his previous stint embarrassing his (Democrat) dad, for whom he worked, by not recognizing James O’Keefe for some reason, and allowing himself to be taped talking about awesome ways to vote illegally. (Since the raw tape went on for about 500 years, we could not possibly listen long enough to determine whether it was its usual James O’Keefiness, and just assumed that it was.)

‘Go To Hell Barack’ Metro Ad Will Stay Despite Congressman’s Mean Letter

Virginia Congressman Jim Moran was none too pleased when he heard about the ad shown above, which says “Barack Obama wants politicians and bureaucrats to control America’s entire medical system. Go to hell Barack” and can be found in the Clarendon, Virginia Metro station. (Sorry if this post is “inside baseball,” since it involves the local transportation system.) Some goober paid $800 to put it up as an advertisement for his movie, about how ObamaCare will murder every last American by, who knows, providing them preventative care visits for no co-pay? Or perhaps it’s the free abortions… Read more on ‘Go To Hell Barack’ Metro Ad Will Stay Despite Congressman’s Mean Letter…

Wonkette Went To Virginia For A Town Hall, And Randall Terry Went Nuts, The End

See, there he is! Randall Terry, who is somewhere between 37 and 124 years old, brought his Anti-Babykilling World Tour to the peaceful Virginia money cave of Reston yesterday evening to disrupt Rep. Jim Moran’s health care town hall, also featuring Doctor Howard Dean of Ver-mont. He succeeded for about 5 minutes, but then the cops kicked him out, and Howard Dean continued to slaughter babies, live, before the crowd of 2,500. Mostly, though, it was an informative (=boring) event, despite the 20-odd jackasses who couldn’t stop shouting monosyllabic vagaries whenever they didn’t like something.

A Midsummer Night’s Wonk’d

You know you are scraping the bottom of the barrel, wonk-wise, when the most famous person on your “spotted around DC” list is Wolf Blitzer. Such is the state we find ourselves in this mid-July. But let’s check out the roster and see who was nearly run over in a parking garage, who was seen joking about his ex-wives, and who stumbled upon a hidden squad of lesbians in Alexandria!

Bag Boys, Ball Boys

Famous DC types, they’re just like you: they are sweaty, they’re “turds,” they drink Mexican beer, and they do yardwork. In this week’s Wonk’d, David Gregory walks in a circle, George Will bugs the people immediately surrounding him, Steny Hoyer violates the law, Bill Delahunt works on Miller’s farm, Tom Davis hangs out in the sixth borough, some dude from The OC does something or other, and we all continue to laugh at Jim Moran’s name. It’s all after the jump. Read more on Bag Boys, Ball Boys…

Rep. Jim Moran Confidential

From a concerned Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) watcher (read: stalker): Yesterday, Monday, June 17, around 4:30pm, I saw Congressman Jim Moran at the YMCA in Alexandria on the Elliptical Cross Trainer and later, on a few of the cybex machines. I realized immediately it was he, and he gave me that whole smile-nod-smile-wink thing that politicians do when they realize they’ve been recognized. Only a politician would bother making nicey-nice when they’re sweatin’ it out on a machine at the gym, but then again, he was going pretty slow and reading the Washington Post editorials, so maybe he just wasn’t pushing himself very hard. That said, if his staffers read this, they should get him a personal trainer. Not only is he approaching Ted Kennedy-esque standards of shapeliness, but his form on the back extension weight machine was really bad– he was hyperextending. He’s a back injury waiting to happen. I hope for his sake that he gets back to his “fistfightin’ on the Congressional floor” weight– and soon. Read more on Rep. Jim Moran Confidential…

Unclaimed-for-DC Property

It’s the trainspotting of “celebrity” journalism, but we can’t help it: Once someone pointed out that Maureen Dowd, David Remnick, Rep. Jim Moran, Nina Totenberg, Bob Franken and Roll Call all had listings in today’s “Notice of Unclaimed Property” in the WaPo, we couldn’t stop looking more Washington folks with, apparently, more money than time. (Clearly, not a problem for us.) Among those who are letting their tax refunds (or whatever) burn a hole in the District’s pocket: Postie Howie Kurtz and soon-to-be ex-Postie Mike Allen, Congressional Quarterly, John McLaughlin, investigative reporter “Murrey” Waas and — are you really surprised — “Governors, Board, O of the Federal Reserve.” Read more on Unclaimed-for-DC Property…
