I Have a Deal For Joe Manchin

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on December 19, 2010

He can attend all of the Christmas parties–and other parties–that he wants, and we can get a Senator from West Virginia who will actually do his or her job.

What, by the way, is it with Democratic politicians ditching job duties to go to Christmas parties?

    How about the other 99 senators and 435 representatives follow his lead and go home. Take all the time they want. Less chance for them to screw something up.

    What a coward, he ducked this purposely so it won’t catch up to him later…when he tries to run for Pres….it is so dehumanizing to identify people by their sexuality instead of as an entire person…sad and he endorses this…

    The Texas legislature meets for six weeks every two years. The joke is it should meet for two weeks every six years. That is about right for all of them.

      Even six weeks every year would be a great improvement for the Feds.

    We all would be better off if Senators went to parties instead of doing their “jobs”.

    In 1866, a judge in New York heard the case of an attorney who was accused of negligence for not reading the most current state statutes before advising a widow on the settlement of her husband’s estate.

    The error arose from want of diligent watchfulness in respect to legislative changes. He did not remember that it might be necessary to look at the statutes of the year before. Perhaps he had forgotten the saying, that “no man’s life, liberty, or property are safe while the Legislature is in session.”

    Maybe he was just trying to subtly strike down all those accusations that he’s a Muslim? Actually, I suspect he probably just REALLY wanted to sneak out for a cigarette. I’d admire him more if he had the guts to light up in public. ;-)

      Manchin is Muslim? Holy crap!

      Oh, and fuck the DREAM Act.

        We actually would prefer the avoidance of profanity here on this site. Thanks.
