Needs more abortion and tax cut bills.

Congress is getting its "fair share" of support.
 
2012-08-08 10:16:18 AM  
The solution? Elect more Republicans.

At least that is what all the forecasts I see seem to say. The derp lizardbrain vote will make great gains in congress.

An acquaintance of mine from Nebraska tried to convince me several years ago on the benefits of unicameral representation. I shudder to think what kind of mess we'd be in right now if we only had one Congressional body.

Maybe if the other voters would stop treating elections like it is a professional wrestling match, we would have more competent representation rather than preening fools.

TL;dr. Was this satire?

A second flood, a simple famine, plagues of locusts everywhere, or a cataclysmic earthquake, I'd accept with some despair. But no, You sent us Congress! Good God, Sir, was that fair?

Yet they still retain the right to keep running Congress somehow.

Oh yeah, they make the rules that keep them there.

Democrats (FTFA): "Well, clearly it's the Republicans' fault. All they do is obstruct any and everything trying to make its way through Congress."

Republicans (FTFA): "You have some gall to say that when you know damn well it's the Democrats' fault. All you do is try to ram bills down our throats that are purposefully designed to fail! You want us to look bad for standing up for our principles! You want the American people to blame us!"

Un-farking-believable. Even in a spoof article, they can't help making a false equivalency.

Hint: Only one of these claims can be factually verified.

I LoL'd. Would read again.

/The members of Congress should be loaded onto a 727 rigged with video cameras and crashed into the Andes so that the American people could watch them slowly eat each other.

"The latest poll show congressional disapproval at 103%, with a margin of error of 3%."
 
2012-08-08 10:57:12 AM  
Now THAT'S comedy!

What kind of mess would that be? We might have representation that reflects more urban voters instead of having a body that artificially inflates representation from sparsely populated rural areas?
 
2012-08-08 11:13:14 AM  
And yet, 95% of the incumbents will win next election. Why? Because the same idiots who biatch about them continue to vote for them.

To be fair, the camels would probably do a better job.

no one should vote for any republican or democrat. Shysters and Hucksters.

Please, tell me more about how both sides are bad...
 
2012-08-08 11:47:35 AM  
ahaha, ahahahaha.

come on, that was funny.

It can get worse than zero?!

I gotta admit, I halfway wish this was from the Onion.
Only today's GOP would be pissed of having to make decisions based on the cluster-fark that is their 'principles'.
 
2012-08-08 12:56:33 PM  
... It made me so sad to realize that this article was satire...
 
2012-08-08 02:33:26 PM  
-1 subby, for lack of satire tag and to help the thread fall below 0%.

FTFY.

So who are you voting for?

fringedmyotis: Kevin72: TL;dr. Was this satire?

Yes. Yes it was.


My immediate response is to agree with you - of course it's satire. However, I must ask - HOW WOULD WE KNOW?
