I understand a love for sport. I have many a love for many a sport. (I only wish that all of my teams right now, sans the Utes, didn't suck so that I could enjoy said sport more often.) But I don't think that on the first day of my new job or my first day back from vacation that I'd be asking the boss for the next couple of days off so that I can go watch football. And college football, at that! That wouldn't be a real good idea. I'd probably get looked at by the boss with the same look that I had when I read this tale of ass-hattery online. You know the look. It's the one that's a cross between the deer-in-the-headlights look and the WTF? look and it's accompanied by the Scooby Doo head tilt and a barely audible "Roo?"
According to the AP, as far as those "other members of Florida and Oklahoma delegations" that also wanted to watch the game, "....none of the other members Stearns referred to as "we" signed the letter". So now you're a moron and a liar. Two for two. Want to go for three? Sure you do.
He also included a handwritten message in his letter to Pelosi which read, "Madam Speaker — Kindly consider. Thanks, Cliff." There you go! You're quite the wordsmith there, Cliffy. That's three! Oh, wait. Did I say 'wordsmith'? I'm sorry, I mean "suck up". They're easily confused. In this case.
Speaker Pelosi (who was probably sunning herself on a rock to warm up her icy cold, reptilian body when she received this request) has said, probably in more words than this, no. (You want to talk 'suck up', look up Nancy Pelosi sometime. I'm pretty sure that she went to the same Fake Smile School alongside Hillary Clinton. What an act she has. Just look at 'em! Two fake peas in a fake, fake pod.)
Among the votes that are scheduled to take place that Rep. Stearns felt weren't overly pressing to the point that they couldn't be postponed for a while, was the " certification of the Electoral College vote that gives Barack Obama the presidency." You can't put off the vote that's going to allow Change-y McOptimism to save us all! What is wrong with you? Sir? You didn't even GO to the University of Florida! You're not even the Rep. from Gainesville! The game is being played in Miami which is another tie that you don't have! (Can I call him a racist? What? Too soon? Yeah, I thought so too. I'll hold off.)
I was hoping that this guy was new and just made a newbie mistake, but no. No, he was elected in 1988, so he's just a jackass. So, for twenty years the people of Flori-duh have felt that this is an adequate show for what they want in their Representative in Congress. Great. I'm so irritated by this I don't even care to look up this guy's record to see if he's done anything at all that might be even remotely noteworthy in those 20 years because I really don't care. This is asinine.
You've got your work cut out for you, Barry. Good luck.Sphere: Related Content
