March Madness


Proving the old adage that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a raving lunatic, Georgia Representative Paul Broun is once again bringing his special brand of redneck stupid to the House floor. For those keeping score -- this makes the second time in less than a week.

Hot off his declaration that the Democratic health care bill amounted to a replay of the "Great War of Yankee Aggression," Broun is now introducing a resolution to proclaim the first week of May "Ten Commandments Week." Sam Brownback tried the same thing a couple of years back, but, thankfully, sane, Constitutionally minded heads prevailed. I expect this latest attempt to circumvent the whole separation-of-church-and-state thing and essentially nationalize the Christian faith -- particularly above all others -- will meet the same fate.

By the way, now's the time to once again remind these doofs that only two of the Ten Commandments are actually United States law -- and they were kind of a given, since murdering and stealing are wrong no matter what you believe.

Still, can't wait to see what Broun's gonna do for the trifecta -- maybe dance around the Capitol rotunda in overalls to try to raise Junior Samples from the dead.

H.R. 1175: Introduced by Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA)

Maybe I'm part of the old fashioned crown, maybe I'm just naive.. but I always thought that lawmakers were supposed to create laws to better society as a whole? They were elected by their constituents so that those constituents could continue their "pursuit of happiness".

How does "Ten Commandments Week" fulfill that obligation?

I say we call on the Zombie Hager Twins to eat whatever this idiot has for brains.

If this resolution passes, I don't want to see any ass-coveting on Capitol Hill that weekend!

This type of crap is so tired and infuriating.

I know it's not kosher to say, but I sincerely can't wait until his generation dies out. Enough is enough.

Junior Samples. Nice reference!

I think bearing false witness is also a crime, at least in court.

And I think this has more to do with making the people who vote against it (mostly Dems), look bad in the eyes of all the good Christian people. Lets amp up the base a little more shall we?

Why stop there? I'm going to petition my senator to declare my birthday as The Code of Hammurabi Day!

That way everyone will be able to keep track of when it is most appropriate to cut off my slave's ear or throw my neighbor's first born son into the river rather than drop a stone wall onto him for stealing my goat.

Hey...no fair... The Ten Commandments belong to the Jews and we don't want no damn Christians taking credit for them. Leave "MY" Ten Commandments alone Jackasses...

How about a mash-up of the Bible and "This Is Spinal Tap"?

...but our commandments go to 11...
