“Where…all the children are below average.”

One might think trying to create jobs or at least pretending to try to create jobs would be the thing the GOP majority would work on … or they could address  concerns about natural disasters.

[Insert Belushi voice (not Jim)]

But nooooooo!

Funny what counts as an “emergency” these days:

House Republicans are holding an emergency meeting of the Rules Committee on Wednesday to take up legislation that would block funding to NPR in the wake of James O’Keefe’s hidden camera prank on the news organization.

That will teach Click & Clack and those commies at The Thistle & Shamrock. Republican world, where climate change doesn’t exist but James O’Keefe is truthful.

Now on to the Senate, to consider John McCain’s emergency motion to bring back Amos ‘n’ Andy.

Priorities people.

Update and breaking: Something very bad is going on in Bahrain. Someone is taking advantage of the world’s being distracted by other events.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
