There has been so much going on this past week that I have resorted to the Top 5 list. I’m wondering if I can keep it to 5 things to highlight this week, because every time I turn around, there is something else making headlines that is “blogworthy”.
The Top 5 Things that have me going WTF? (Ask Speaker Boehner if you need to know what the “F” stands for)
5 – Michele Bachmann introduces a new bill to repeal Obamacare.
“Michele.it’s for you. It’s 2012 calling and they want their issue back.”
Been there, done that. In fact line 2 is calling and it’s abused women.
4- Violence Against Women Act
Excuse me..GOP, could I interrupt you for a moment? I know you guys (I mean guys literally) are super busy right now with America recovering from your attempt to throw us off the fiscal cliff. However, we can all agree that you had a little image problem when it came to the last election. Your ability to look very male and very white was a problem and some would say cost you the election. The hashtag #WaronWomen got a lot of mileage on Twitter. Blame that on Todd Akin, blame that on other various member of your party who were educating us every other week on how our anatomy worked, but in the end women voted and a lot of you lost. So why is it then that when the VAWA bill that was passed by the Senate came up for a vote on the House you didn’t (I mean forgot) to vote on it?
psst…little secret here-if you want to repair your image, might I suggest that you vote on a bill that is called the VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT? I know I’m not some fancy political consultant inside the beltway, but my guess is that would have been a good start to repair the damage done to you in the last campaign cycle. Little hint – this is probably going to come back to bite you in the tush come next election cycle.
3 – The Hillary Clinton Conspiracy
Hillary falls, gets a concussion and then ends up hospitalized with a blood clot. Conspiracy freaks ran wild with talk that this was all done so she didn’t have to testify in the Benghazi matter. I know I planned my DVT that I suffered from about 5 years ago to get out of some obligations I had as well. I think my obligation was some birthday party for a toddler I didn’t want to go to. The blood thinners that I had to inject in my abdomen twice a day for about six weeks was a picnic so I could get out of things I had planned. It was awesome having to go to the doctor almost weekly to have my blood levels checked. To all those who said she did this on purpose – you nailed it! I know I caused my DVT on purpose. How did you guess? Gosh you guys are geniuses!
2 – Roy Blunt
A personal thank you Roy Blunt. It seems like almost weekly you provide me with some inspiration for my writing. This week it was about Hurricane Sandy relief and why it’s o.k. not to provide any disaster relief to the victims -
His response on Hurricane Sandy relief: “Sometimes when you ask for too much, you don’t get anything,” he said.
