Do-Nothing Congress Shocked at Possibility of Working

And the winner of the Karl Rove “Hopelessly Out of Touch” award goes to…(drum roll please) Representative Jack Kingston (R-Ga) who, upon hearing the news that he might have to actually work next year, had this to say:

“Keeping us up here eats away at families. Marriages suffer. The Democrats could care less about families — that’s what this says.”

No s***, Sherlock. Of course, any soldier, sailor, marine or airman could have told him that, had he had the guts to ask. Maybe we should send Kingston to Baghdad for a year and have him doing nightly patrols of Sadr city in a Humvee so he can see what real hardship looks like.

That man needs a dose of reality.
