Soup4Bonnie: Zeb Hesselgresser: So neither the author nor his source thinks it's likely.  Okay, then

Yeah, that was my take, too, and then I remembered we had people like Cruz and Paul and King and Gohmert in Congress.  Somebody will stick their dick in these mashed potatoes.

As a Teapublican, I am fond of this brand. Before I discovered it, I'd spend hours peeling potatoes and mixing the butter, milk, salt, and other sprinkles before finally having a proper place to lodge my penis. Not only is it heat 'n serve, but comes complete with a handy bowl so I don't have to dirty my own kitchenware. I've loved a lot of chickens in my time, but nothing beats the warming embrace of sticking your dick in these Country Crock mashed potatoes.

Caveat: The directions tell you to let the potatoes sit for two minutes after microwaving. Heed this advice.

No no.  Life begins at intention.  If I want to have sex with a woman and she says no, then she's pre-aborting our unborn child.  That's just wrong.

Here's how this will almost certainly play out in Congress.

The Senate will pass, over a filibuster, a basic resolution approving some form of intervention in Syria.

The Teapublicans (thanks dickfreckle) in the House will approve an amendment to the Senate resolution that fully repeals ObamaCare. They will then vote against the combined resolution because it doesn't also repeal Dodd-Frank and cut food stamps by $100 billion over the next five years. The hawkish Democrats will unanimously vote against this combined resolution as well since they don't want ObamaCare to go away. The authorization to intervene in Syria will fail catastrophically.

The day after this resolution fails, the entire Northeastern corridor will be hit with sarin gas, leading to tens of thousands of deaths and millions of injuries. Obama will then unilaterally declare war on the Middle East and nuke the region into oblivion.

Punch and pie will be served at the after-party.

Every now and then Obama comes out as a master troller, and this is another case.

Congress has to act but I doubt the GOP can do anything unified other than put Reagan on the $10,000 bill. Obama wants to act but he's got time and wants to get the evidence in, so he passed the buck to them. The GOP is going to go crazy between their bloodlust for dead brown people and their hatred of anything Obama wants to do.

It's "ExxonMobil"
