Congress’ Scorched Earth Policy

I always thought disdainful, arrogant disregard of the populace was more the Clinton’s milieu, but today the US House proved me wrong. They passed the Slaughter House rule, 222-203. My own disgraceful representative was a YEA, of course, hanging with his pal, the third-world president.

RUSH: Well, Snerdley’s in a little fit here, folks. He thinks I’ve really stepped in it by referring to our president as a Third World president. “What do you mean by that? You better explain what you mean by this.” It’s very simple. We have to destroy our country in order to save our leader’s face. Now, where does this happen? It happens in Cuba. It happens in North Korea. It happens in Venezuela. It happens in every Third World country there is. They destroy countries in order to save their face, build monuments to themselves. They’re leaders for life or what have you. This is not a health care bill anymore. This is a save Obama’s face bill. This is save Obama’s bacon bill. Save Obama’s presidency bill. It doesn’t matter what’s in it!

He’ll sign whatever he gets, as long as it says “health care reform” somewhere in it.

The estimable Smitty of The Other McCain throws down the gauntlet, along with excellent visual aids. Pelosi is about to have her Yamamoto moment and no amount of botox will protect her.

Long time readers know I don’t have a tip jar and don’t blog for money. I don’t often suggest giving money to particular causes, because after all it’s your money and your decision on how to manage it (gee, I’d make a terrible Congressperson). But today I urge you, if you love America, to donate a few bucks to Mark Levin’s Landmark Legal Foundation to fight the atrocity that happened this afternoon in the House. Via Erick at RedState,

God bless Mark Levin.

Here’s the money quote:

“Landmark has already prepared a lawsuit that will be filed in federal court the moment the House acts. Such a brazen violation of the core functions of Congress simply cannot be ignored. Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution is clear respecting the manner in which a bill becomes law. Members are required to vote on this bill, not claim they did when they didn’t. The Speaker of the House and her lieutenants are temporary custodians of congressional authority. They are not empowered to do permanent violence to our Constitution.”

You can give to the Landmark Legal Foundation here. The future of America may depend on it.

    For a project, we should come up with an overall “Biggest Piece of Work” ranking.
    Jim Moran, my local tool, would compete heavily, though Nancy Pelosi might have it all sewn up.
