Ironic use of the ironic tag?

Anyone else open the link and expect an article about proctology?
 
2014-06-10 03:59:42 PM
Nice try, but that would be like me getting surgery on my vagina.

Brain surgery undergoes Congressman should be more apropros
 
2014-06-10 05:32:28 PM
was it an implant?

Quick, someone give me a reason to wish ill upon this human being

I wonder if he lost enough brain function to turn him into a Democrat.
 
2014-06-10 05:36:11 PM
Haven't read the article, but it must be about some type of prosthetic brain. It's nice when they can replace missing parts. Ah, the advances of science!

'Dick Cheney undergoes heart surgery'  was obviously for an implant.

"Results were negative"

Yes but the cavity was to small, and they couldn't find a nemetode in time.

RIP Congress Critter.

Yeah, I don't get it either. He's in Congress, and he had surgery.

Corvan stood and aimed his flashlight into the opening again. It revealed nothing. No shapes resolving in the gloom. No glitter of minerals in the wall. No creature disturbed by sudden illumination. The inky blackness seemed to swallow the light whole, not letting a single ray back out.
"There's Nothing here." He said.

Mississippi congressman undergoes brain surgery, and looking forward to being a congressman from Alabama.

This thread provides incontrovertible proof that all Liberals are heartless, cruel bastards who wallow in constant hatred of true, heroic Americans.  No Republican would even consider saying anything negative about a fellow human being undergoing delicate surgery.  You Lib-U-Lardos show your true colors with every vile and foul imprecation that emerges from your fang-dripping mouths.  I pray you all contract an incurable fatal disease while engaging in sodomy with each other.

I figure they could've just hacked away at what they had until it fit.

I had to look up what nemetode was, turns out its worms, i hate worms.

Not to be snarky.  But I am so glad he has health insurance paid for by the taxpayers of the US.

I hope he is ok.  But it is ironic that the Republican Party is so against anyone having insurance except themselves.
He is a Republican and should show just how brave he is by cancelling his health insurance.  As long as one person in any state has no
coverage, no congressman should have any coverage either.
 
2014-06-10 05:53:26 PM
Good luck. We're all counting on you.

It is surprising to learn that at least one member of Congress actually has a brain.  This is shocking news.
 
2014-06-10 05:56:36 PM
Are they putting one in,

taking one out,

or is it exploratory, to see if they can find something?

But isn't this elective surgery for a Congressman?

THIS should probably be enough:


Meet Alan Nunnelee: Mississippi's Newest Member of Congress is on a "Crusade to Save America"
Mississippi Democrat Travis Childers was a prime target for the GOP the moment he took office after a special election in May, 2008. One of the most conservative Democrats in the House, Childers opposed health care reform and abortion rights, supported gun rights, and voted with his party less often than almost any other House member.
But despite his conservative bona fides, Childers couldn't hold onto his seat against the challenge of far-right state senator Alan Nunnelee. Nunnelee describes himself as on a "crusade to save America." Although Childers voted against almost all of the Democrats' major pieces of legislation, Nunnelee criticized him for not being conservative enough. In a speech before his primary victory, Nunnelee declared that Democratic policies are "more dangerous" than Pearl Harbor or 9/11: "What I see in Washington over the last 16 months is a more dangerous attack because it's an attack on our freedom that's coming from the inside."
In an interview with a local Tea Party group, Nunnelee questioned whether the Obama Administration has a national security policy, saying "the administration has been so preoccupied with their domestic agenda that they have ignored our national defense."
In aspeech before the Byhalia Chamber of Commerce in August, Nunnelee dipped his toes in conspiracy theory, announcing that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was planning to investigate American citizens who oppose the so-called "Ground Zero Mosque": "Just yesterday, the Speaker of the House said that those people that were opposed to building a mosque at the site of Ground Zero need to be investigated. So if you had a conversation at work, if you picked up your cell phone and called your brother in law, if you sent an email to your children, and you expressed concern about that, you need to watch out, because the Speaker of the House thinks you should be investigated."
A state senator since 1994, Nunnelee has been a leader in far-right initiatives including hard-line anti-choice laws, opposition to gay rights, reducing environmental oversight, and making it more difficult to obtain Medicaid.
Nunnelee was at the forefront of Mississippi's efforts to all but eliminate abortion services in the state. He was instrumental in the effort to pass Mississippi's ban on late term abortion and led the effort to create a law directly challenging Roe v. Wade, which he called "the worst kind of law." Nunnelee's law set up tough parental consent requirements and provided that, in the event that Roe v. Wade was overturned, doctors performing abortions could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison. Nunnelee also wrote an "informed consent" law requiring women to look at a picture book of fetal development before agreeing to an abortion procedure. He worked with anti-choice groups to write a law requiring abortion clinics in Mississippi to meet "ambulatory surgical facility" standards, intended to put abortion clinics out of business by requiring them to follow onerous and precise standards including having hallways over six feet wide and "an attractive setting." This year, Nunneleesponsored a bill requiring Mississippi to "opt-out" of using federal health care funds for abortion-although the state already has such a ban and the federal health care bill involves no such funding. He called it the "Federal Abortion-Mandate Opt-Out Act."
There is now only one abortion clinic in Mississippi.
On the issue of marriage, Nunnelee brags of having pushed Mississippi's anti-marriage equality constitutional amendment, and of working to prevent gay couples in the state from adopting children, saying: "I am proud to have pushed the statutory language prohibiting same sex couples from adopting as well as the Constitutional Amendment prohibiting same sex marriage in Mississippi." He also voted to allow an option for covenant marriage, a marriage agreement under which it is very difficult to get a divorce.
Nunnelee was behind the successful push to make the DMV print "Choose Life" license plates, with the proceeds going to benefit anti-choice groups, and also boasts that he "led the efforts to place our national motto, In God we Trust, on the classroom wall of every school classroom in the state."
Nunnelee also boasts of his roll in a 2004 plan that cut 65,000 Mississippians from the state's Medicaid rolls. His suggestion for those who lost coverage was to call drug companies to find out about free or reduced price prescriptions. The Mississippi Human Services Coalition gave him 0 percent ranking for his abysmal voting record.
He has consistently voted for Voter ID laws, which often work to prevent low-income people from voting. He has said he supports Arizona's draconian anti-immigrant law, saying, "unless the federal government is willing to enforce existing laws, states must protect themselves as Arizona has." In a GOP candidates' debate, he stated, "I would be absolutely opposed to granting any kind of amnesty to any man or woman who is in this country illegally," and also supports ending the 14th Amendment's guarantee of birthright citizenship.
Finally, after he was elected, Nunneleewent on the radio with notorious bigot Bryan Fischer to discuss the GOP's policies in the new Congress, repeatedly agreeing that health care reform should be repealed at all costs, even if it takes a government shut-down.

The best you can do is a lobotomy.
