These Are the People Who Are Making Our Laws

This happened in Idaho today:

BOISE, Idaho — An Idaho lawmaker received a brief lesson on female anatomy after asking if a woman can swallow a small camera for doctors to conduct a remote gynecological exam.

The question Monday from Republican Rep. Vito Barbieri came as the House State Affairs Committee heard nearly three hours of testimony on a bill that would ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medication through telemedicine.

Dr. Julie Madsen was testifying in opposition to the bill when Barbieri asked the question. Madsen replied that would be impossible because swallowed pills do not end up in the vagina.

Per his Wikipedia page, Mr. Barbieri is 63-years-old, he’s married and he has a law degree but somehow, despite all those years of life and all that education, he missed the fact that what a woman swallows doesn’t end up in, or go through, her vagina.

Aieee.

My House is as Big as the Living Room in Mitt Romney’s California Beach House

Per the Washington Post, this is the floor plan of the new house Mitt and Ann Romney are building in La Jolla, California.  You know, the one with the car elevator:

How does our 1,150 sq. ft., three bedroom, 1-1/2 bath house compare?  Here it is in blue, superimposed over the plans above.  Slide that blue square over to the right, into the living room of Mitt and Ann’s place, and it just about fits.  It might even be a tad smaller.

Don’t get me wrong.  I’m not complaining.  No way.  We love our house and we feel lucky given the space we have.  So many people around the world live in much smaller places.  Much, much smaller.

My point here is that the ol’ Mittster’s thinking about running for president in 2016 as an anti-poverty/income disparity guy.  You know, as if he suddenly cares about the 47% he spat on the last time around.

Maybe it’s just me but I don’t think a man who’s building an 11,000 square foot home (one of many) can even begin to relate to someone like me whose whole house would fit in his living room.

Remember When John Boehner Was Screaming About Creating Jobs?

Republican Dinasour

For most of the last six years, the Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, has been screaming (while looking sideways at President Obama) about the need to CREATE JOBS!  WHAT WE NEED IS JOBS (here, here)!

Okay, so Republicans control both the House and the Senate now so they’re getting on with creating those jobs right?  Not exactly:

Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA):

Week one, we had a Speaker election that didn’t go as well as a lot of us would have liked. Week two, we spent a lot of time talking about deporting children, a conversation a lot of us didn’t want to have. Week three, we’re debating reportable rape and incest — again, not an issue a lot of us wanted to have a conversation about. I just can’t wait for week four.

This, From a Guy Who Thinks He’s Qualified to Be President

Your?  Yo, Bobby, it’s you’re, as in you are.  Look it up.  Not only that, here in the U.S. we put the period inside the quotation marks.

Mike Huckabee Responds to the State of the Union Address

President Obama’s State of the Union address begins at 9:00 p.m. EDT.  I’m posting this press release from Mike Huckabee’s office at 7:20 p.m. EDT, a little under two hours before the speech begins.

And Huckabee thinks he’s presidential material?  What a fool.

So, Can We Be Done With Benghazi Now, Please?

WASHINGTON (AP) — A two-year investigation by the Republican-controlled House Intelligence Committee has found that the CIA and the military acted properly in responding to the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, and asserted no wrongdoing by Obama administration appointees.

Debunking a series of persistent allegations hinting at dark conspiracies, the investigation of the politically charged incident determined that there was no intelligence failure, no delay in sending a CIA rescue team, no missed opportunity for a military rescue, and no evidence the CIA was covertly shipping arms from Libya to Syria.

[…]

The House Intelligence Committee report was released with little fanfare on the Friday before Thanksgiving week. Many of its findings echo those of six previous investigations by various congressional committees and a State Department panel.

More…

Gee, I can’t imagine (well, actually, yes I can) why a Benghazi-obsessed Republican-controlled House committee would release the seventh freakin’ Benghazi report showing no wrongdoing on the Friday before Thanksgiving.

The reason?  They want it to immediately sink into the dark rat hole of history, never to be mentioned again.

Aye carumba U.S. media, can be done with this now?  The next time a Republican comes crying to you about Benghaaaazi, will you please, PRETTY PLEASE, laugh in their damn face?!
