It’s a good thing the debate to be the new chair of the RNC isn’t an episode of Jeopardy, because Republicans wouldn’t do too well on “Great Literature” (video below). When the candidates were asked to name their favorite book, chair hopeful Ann Wagner thought they asked for her favorite bar, and said “probably my kitchen table.”
When the question was explained to Wagner, she said her favorite book was “George Bush’s new book.” The sad thing is I would vote for a person who sits and drinks at their kitchen table over anyone who would read George Bush’s book.
But Michael Steele actually topped Wagner. He said his favorite book was “War and Peace.” Then he quoted Charles Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities” by reciting “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” Well, call me Ishmael! Does Michael Steele really read Tolstoy? He seems more like a Dostoyevsky guy, but then for some reason I’m thinking of “The Idiot.” One thing is for sure—no matter who wins, the Republicans are going to get the leadership they truly deserve.
In news of Republican idiots who already have jobs, the House Republicans are going to be doing more investigations than the TV character “House.” Except the House Republicans are never going to find the answers they’re looking for. I don’t want to say that all of these bogus investigations are just fishing expeditions, but they should be conducted wearing hip waders and a hat loaded with lures.
Darrell Issa sent out a letter asking big business which regulations they want him to try and get rid of. Well, you can’t say that Darrell Issa is not listening to his constituents. What exactly was the header on the letter that Darrell Issa sent to all these businesses? “To Foxes, Re: Henhouse.”
Finally, some incoming freshman Republicans are throwing a lavish fundraiser tonight that is being seen a major embarrassment to Republicans. Even John Boehner has said that he plans to skip the event. Well, that just makes me think that there’s obviously no open bar. Don’t worry, John. You can always drink at Ann Wagner’s kitchen table.
