This is now a regular TPC feature.
Sometimes I get so frustrated and/or disheartened and/or annoyed by some of the news stories of the day that I can’t bring myself to write about them. Here are a few recent reports that made my blood pressure hit the roof. I am avoiding delving into them at length out of concern for my physical and mental health:
- Grassley Proposes Eliminating 3 Seats On Powerful Court To Keep Obama From Filling Them: Blocking President Obama's judicially nominees is the new black. Or is it the old anti-black? I retort, you deride.
- Paycheck Fairness Act Vote Blocked By House GOP: Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) said on the House Floor that the bill is a "liberal plot" to perpetuate the narrative that Republicans are anti-woman. Nah, they don't need us to perpetuate that narrative, they're doing that all by themselves.
- Air Force General Defends Overturning Sexual Assault Conviction By Blaming Victim: Two words. Oy and Vey.
- Michigan GOPer Dave Agema Compares Being Gay To Alcoholism: But hey, no worries, turn that frown upside down! Because Agema says he doesn't hate gays! He just "doesn't agree with their lifestyle" and wants them "to know the facts of what's going to happen to you if you stay in this lifestyle." See?
See what I mean? So who’s up for a couple of Margs or a trough of wine?
