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?
