Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker: Let Them Eat Catfood

There are a lot of rich white men who are representing you in our nation’s most deliberative body, and sometimes they set themselves apart by being INSANELY CRAZY. But sometimes they are just run-of-the-mill crazy, in which case it is hard to tell them apart. This is why you don’t yet know very much about Republican Senator Bob Corker probably — it is because so far he has been able to blend in, chameleonlike, with all of these other moderately crazy rich white male Republican Senators and stay just below the radar. JUST CRAZY ENOUGH to be a Republican; NOT CRAZY ENOUGH to be a particularly noteworthy Republican.

Vengeful God, Iowa Rep. Steve King, Will Smite Every Bill Obama Ever Signed Into Law

Oh hi Steve King (R-His Own Sphincter), what paranoid delusional BS are you blabbing about today? You will remember Steve King as the gentleman who advocated for the legality of animal cruelty because of the theoretical legality of a VERY detailed scenario (fantasy?) involving abducting a 13 year old girl from a swing set, raping her, taking her across state lines to give her an abortion to “hide the evidence,” transporting her back across state lines, and depositing her safely back at the swing set from whence she had been abducted. Now he has used his slippery grasp on “law” to consider the introduction of an amendment that would repeal everything Obama has signed into law. Everything! This is just retaliation for Obama being insufficiently cruel to undocumented immigrants who were brought to this country as children: Read more on Vengeful God, Iowa Rep.

Fat Cat Execs Will Probably Get To Keep Massive Salaries, Bonuses, Five-Diamond Hookers, Etc.

For a few brief minutes it seemed like the executive pay cap proposal and a provision to recoup some of the bailout money spent on bonuses might actually stay in the stimulus bill.
