What a Conundrum

Amusing wingnut-mania coming to a mature, rational, deliberative legislative body representing you soon.

The measure Abercrombie will introduce commemorates the 50th anniversary of Hawaii’s statehood. But here’s the rub, his spokesman tells me: It describes Hawaii as Barack Obama’s birthplace.

“In the language of the resolution, there is a statement that Hawaii is the birthplace of the 44th President of the United States,” Abercrombie spokesman Dave Helfert confirms.

That confronts House GOPers with a choice: They can vote for the measure, and endorse the idea that Obama was born in Hawaii, which could earn the wrath of birthers. Or they can vote against commemorating the 50th state’s joining of our blessed Union. Or GOPers can skip the vote, but that could look nutty.

Normally, this should piss me off, but after years of watching the rethugs play this childish posturing, procedural bullshit, it's nice to see one of ours do the same.
Call the fucking waaaaahmbulance already.
Stay tuned, this should be funny shit.

Sorry about the lack of posts, but the drama gods have decided to inflict their wrath upon me lately and why, I don't know. Regular programming to resume soon as possible.
I miss you guys.
Hugs and awkward gropes,
