Byrd Dog

Nearly-dead Senator Robert Byrd took the floor yesterday on Capitol Hill and rambled aimlessly for nearly 20 full minutes about the inhuman "barbarity" of organized dog fighting.

I'd never recommend sitting through every minute of this admittedly hilarious nonsense, but do yourself a favor and push about 5:44 into this clip and when you get there, remember these words:

"I think we're all indebted to Gabby Johnson for clearly stating what had to be said... Not only was it authentic frontier gibberish, but it expressed a courage that is little seen in this day and age."

How did this walking corpse, obviously on a WIDE variety of medications, get elected? Has anyone heard him speak? Ever.

Apparently in this day and age our politicians need not be decent orators (or lucid ones) as that isn't really the mark of a man qualified for such a job. Thanks, W.

Oh, and... BARBARIC?!?
