Monday Stuff

(I also posted here.)

RIP Sally Ride – among her other accomplishments, I remember her great work on the panel investigating the Challenger disaster…she didn’t take any crap from the Morton Thiokol suits or other bureaucrats; she definitely will be missed…

…and working our way ever forward, I give you this…
#22, Chris Smith
#23, Todd Akin
#24, Buck McKeon
#25, Kristi Noem
#26, Hal Rogers
#27, Lou Barletta (Two bonus selections: Boren and Ross)
#28, Paul Broun
#29, Mary Bono Mack
#30, David Dreier
#31, Marsha Blackburn (including backgrounder)
…and that brings us to #21 on our list of U.S. House Repugs opposing health care reform (with some truly preposterous charges, it should be pointed out) and that would be Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington state – here, Tweety tries to pin her down, as it were, on why the House didn’t include same-sex couples in reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act (just smile nice for the cameras and keep repeating your idiotic drivel over and over)…

…and I realize that absolutely nothing in this video is illegal, but I still think it sends quite a message…

Update 12/6/12: Another shining moment from McMorris Rodgers here - not!

Update 12/18/13: And bless McMorris Rodgers and her pointed little "Republic" Party head for this.

Update 1/31/14: No word on whether or not her nose grew in response to this.

…and given the fact that we basically live in “Fortress America” thanks to the NRA, I think this tune is appropriate (sorry, no video).
