Insanity Claims More Republicans

You’ve just gotta see this!

From the website of the House Energy and Commerce Committee Republicans:

Bipartisanship on SCHIP!*

Republican businessman Montgomery Burns today joined with Mayor Joe Quimby, D-Springfield, to support the Senate’s gazillion-dollar SCHIP bill.

Yes, those would be characters from “The Simpsons.” Rich and evil gazillionaire Monty Burns and woman-chasing Mayor Quimby. If they’re for something, it must be bad, right??

So, does this mean Bart and Lisa’s parents are supporters of the President’s veto of SCHIP? Is Apu? What about Moe, or Barney, or Willie? Has anyone spoken to Principal Skinner, or Ms. Crabapple??

Do cartoon characters have trouble paying their health insurance premiums?

Obviously, there are a few disturbing possibilities here.

1) The House Energy and Commerce Committee Republicans had their site hacked. By hackers using copyrighted characters and images.

2) The House Energy and Commerce Committee Republicans, intentionally and with zero forethought, used copyrighted characters and images without permission in a press release designed to gather support for the President’s veto of SCHIP.

3) The House Energy and Commerce Committee Republicans, intentionally and with zero forethought, used copyrighted characters and images with permission in a press release designed to gather support for the President’s veto of SCHIP.

4) The House Energy and Commerce Committee Republicans, intentionally and with not much forethought, used copyrighted characters and images without permission in a press release designed to gather support for the override of the President’s veto of SCHIP.

5) The House Energy and Commerce Committee Republicans, intentionally and with not much forethought, used copyrighted characters and images with permission in a press release designed to gather support for the override of the President’s veto of SCHIP.

Saturday Puppy Blogging

This has been a rough couple of weeks, so I haven’t gotten much chance to look around the blogosphere. Hopefully, I’ll get back to regular Saturday round-ups next week.

In the meantime, enjoy pictures of my son’s newest addition:

That’s Tank. (I voted for Leonidas, but was overruled.)

If you’ve ever been to I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER you know cats talk and write in a weird, non-native, Instant Messenger-type English. “KTHXBAI” comes to mind. (Come to think of it, it could be toddler-English…)

Dogs probably talk like Cheech and Chong. Can you not see this dog saying, “Du-uude, ‘mon. Get me some of that … that … uh … what’s it called? … y’know … the stuff I eat. I got the munchies like you wouldn’t believe.”
