Congress as the Home of Religious Humor…

Jim DeMint

Senator DeMint

This from a longer article in Salon by Alex Pareene… I would just like to note that Republicans are willing to try just about anything to be assholes:

DeMint and Kyl are also the primary authors of my favorite new political argument of 2010: That holding votes near Christmas is insulting to the Baby Jesus. It’s “sacrilegious,” according to DeMint, to vote on things right before Christmas. Kyl made the interesting point that it’s insulting to Christians to go to work between Christmas and New Year‘s, a week during which most of the remaining Americans with full-time jobs are indeed expected to make an appearance at the office.

As far as I’m concerned, they can stay in session until the day the new Congress takes over in January.

  1. Misterioso Adversario

    Perhaps its time to be outraged at being outraged?

    But in seriousness, Jim DeMint can suck it up and get back to work. He gets paid somewhere in the area of $174,000 a year, plus benefits and pension. Most of America has to work the week before, the week of, and the week after Christmas, none of us get a Winter break from work to be with our families, why does Jim DeMint think he is so special?

  2. These guys are unbelievable. I’m from South Carolina and might otherwise be embarrassed by DeMint, but we’ve got so many right-wing loonies down here, I’m tired of being outraged.
