Congress has Real Life Epeen measuring contest. Winner = No one.

The last scandal involving “Weiners” I wrote about was of course about Anthony Weiner.  This time it’s the House Republicans that want to show everyone how big their weiners are.  Spoiler Alert: No one wins.

The timeline for the looming debt ceiling and impending default doesn’t bother me as much as the damage that our congressmen are doing NOW.  We’ve been told the value of the American dollar will drop *IF* we default on our debts.

Newsflash: The circus show that GOP is hosting right now in the House is already causing it to drop.
I’m not going to say, the Republicans are entirely to blame for this but given that they have majority control of the House of Representatives right now, I’d have to say that they’re mostly to blame.
The Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell has stated that “the single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term President.”

Republican House Speaker, John Boehner has also echoed those sentiments and in regards to Obama’s agenda said, “We’re going to do everything — and I mean everything we can do — to kill it, stop it, slow it down, whatever we can.”

The President has been bending over backwards on compromises to raise the debt ceiling and yet Boehner and House Republicans still continue to argue because apparently Obama isn’t touching his toes too.

These aren’t our elected leaders…these are children.  More and more, it becomes painfully apparent that the entire House is a decadent, rusted cog that doesn’t turn for the American people.  It screeches slowly forward for lobbyists and partisan posturing and when there’s actual work that needs to be done it spins backwards.

The Republicans and Democrats can squabble like children over spending cuts and tax raises any time.  Instead, the Republicans are abusing key issues like this in some illogically thought through effort to undermine Obama’s presidency.

Not only are they screwing the American people but they’re putting a knife in their own backs too.  Boehner and the gang are stonewalling the debt ceiling issue beyond reason and it’s showing.
This is the same thing Boehner put us through in April threatening not to pass a new budget, which would have seen a government shutdown and Federal workers including military not getting a paycheck.

Instead they used the threat of shutdown as a standing board for their issues with Planned Parenthood.

Now, Senator McConnell is proposing a ridiculously convoluted plan in which Obama must propose to raise the debt ceiling, then the Republicans vote it down and then Obama vetoes the votedown.
What do we pay these guys for again?

So, like I said…it all boils down to a penis measuring contest in which no one wins and the American people lose…big time.

Weiner remaining firm under increasing pressure

Weiner describes his...uh...nevermind. 

Okay, we get it.  Enough already.  I’m already over-quota for dick jokes well into 2012.

Here we go anyway.  See how much blatant sexual innuendo you can find in this article.
The news media has been all over Weiner for the last week since this whole Weiner thing exploded in the news.

Fellow Democrats are calling for Weiner to come down but Weiner appears to be remaining firm despite the increasing pressure.

Of course Donald Trump felt he had to get on top of this Weiner thing too.  Anyone who wasn’t an idiot could see there was something up with Weiner.  But thanks anyway for your incredible insight Donald and coming from someone of your moral caliber that means a lot.

The Clintons have already said they are unhappy about Weiner but so far the White House has been avoiding Weiner altogether.

The news media has been hammering Weiner for the last week.  Honestly, I don’t see how they have been pulling it off with a straight face.

Weiner has been on the lips of network reporters all week and they have repeatedly used words like “pressure” and “firm” and describe Weiner as being Jewish.  Their continued use of poorly worded phrases makes me think that even Wolf Blitzer must be in on the jokes.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot…PENIS.
