|To this Texas Congressman, it's the park|
ranger's fault that Congress can't get their act
Nobody's dignifying themselves in Washington with this, but two incidents stand out.
One is a video of Republican Representative Randy Neugebauer yelling at a park ranger for keeping people out of a World War II memorial in Washington DC due to the shutdown.
He said the ranger ought to be ashamed for not letting people in. Like it was her fault Congress Creatures cut off funding for the government because they wanted to score political points.
Um, this park ranger doesn't control the purse strings.
You and the other Congress Creatures do, Mr. Neugebauer. I'm shocked I have to remind you of this. I'm sure if you and the others put your egos aside, the nice park ranger will let everyone who wants to see the Memorial in.
So don't yell at her to score political points, you buffoon.
Meanwhile, Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Indiana, schools on what's important here, and how to best end the shutdown. It isn't about government spending, about Obamacare, or any other important public issue.
The important thing Stutzman tells us, is that our Congress Creatures need their egos stroked constantly. Really, this is what he said: "We're not going to be disrespected. We have to get something out of this. And I don't know what that even is."
Yes, in the weird, hell that is Washington, the Democrats have to stroke the Republican egos, the Republicans have to stroke the Democrat egos. It's all about them. Not about the lives Congress is wrecking. Or the work their shirking because they have to mug for the cameras. Jerks.
OK, Your Highness Stutzman. We have to bow at your feet for you to do your job. We have to respect you to make you work like you were elected to do? And you and your fellow Congress Creatures deserve respect because.........??
