To Think We Actually Pay This Guy

By Greg L | 5 April 2011 | Gerry Connolly | 5 Comments

Just when there’s a budget crisis in Congress and the possibility of a shutdown and default are looming, Congressman Gerry Connolly emerged from his burrow to announce six more weeks of silliness in the greatest deliberative body in the world.  Not content with defending enormous deficit spending, Connolly is proposing we change the short title of several bills in the house to — and I’m not kidding here folks — the “Protecting Americans from Polar Bears Act,” the “Koch Brothers Appreciation Act,” the “Oil Producing Economy Capitulation Act,” and the “Head in the Sand Act.”

What a waste of perfectly good oxygen.  Wasn’t it enough that during the last session he spent time co-sponsoring a bill to recognize the victims of a 1865 steamboat tragedy on the Mississippi River?

    Not that it will matter but I wrote him suggesting he stop wasting time acting like a 6th grader and put his time and energy to better use.

    Anonymous, you will get a reply from him.

    It will say something like “Thank you for supporting my efforts in energy efficiency. I co-sponsored a bill entitled Work Smart Not Hard Act of 2011″

    It’s good to see Connolly is spending on his time on things like this and not wasting his time on something worthless, say like getting a vote in Congress on Obama’s war in Libya.

    Well perhaps he can accompany the lady democrats on their shopping expedition. This seems like something suitable to his abilities!

    Warning… there is a picture of Rep brown at the link.

    With a government shutdown looming, Capitol Hill was a pretty serious place on Wednesday afternoon.

    But for Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Fla.), what better way to ease the tension than with a congressional ladies personal shopping trip in Arlington, Va.?

    According to an email from Brown’s scheduler titled, “Outing with Congresswoman Corrine Brown,” staff member Cathy Gass invited Brown’s fellow female Congressional Black Caucus members to join the lawmaker at a boutique in Crystal City, Va. on Wednesday afternoon.

    According to the email, which was addressed to “CBC Schedulers,” Brown “would like to invite the woman [sic] CBC Members to go shopping with her at Daniel’s Boutique this afternoon after votes.

    Please let me know if your Member is interested and I will inform the Congresswoman.”

    Gass also suggests that for members who “would like to share [their] dress size, the boutique can pull some items for them to have available once they arrive.”

    For those unfamiliar with the ultra high-end service, pulling clothes that a client might like before they arrive is better known as personal shopping.

    According to the shop’s website, Daniel’s Boutique was founded in 1988 and “specializes in wardrobe consulting and custom tailoring.”

    A visit to the boutique’s website revealed plenty of the skirt and jacket combinations popular with lawmakers.

    A spokesman for Brown declined to comment on the shopping trip.
