Several posts already about the hearings, and I watched them live until the lunch break, at which I couldn’t take anymore. If the goal of these hearings was to make Strozk look good and the majority party in congress look like idiots, well, mission accomplished.
What I never understand about these hearings is why these people seem to just relish the opportunity to go on camera and act the fool. I get that Louis Gohmert and Steve King actually ARE probably stupid enough to not realize how dumb they look, but what I don’t get is why the people of Steertaint, Texas and Cornpone, Iowa keep sending those morons back to congress to humiliate them.
Trey Gowdy is a different case- he’s from South Carolina, and he’s actually a pretty bright guy, he’s just a hack and has accurately determined that his voters are as dumb as he thinks they are, so he just doesn’t give a fuck.
I just don’t get it. When I was a kid and we went on vacation, my mother would scream at us if we did something like put our feet up on the windows of the car when we were on the highway- “YOU CAN’T DO THAT WE HAVE WEST VIRGINIA PLATES THEY WILL THINK WE ARE ALL HILLBILLIES AND HICKS.” We were little brand ambassadors everywhere we went for the good state of West by God Virginny.
Any time Joe Manchin is on television I sit in terror waiting for him to say something awful- I sit there watching the tv as if I am on the phone with my doctor waiting for an STD test result. Fortunately, he never says much of anything, so my fears are usually misplaced.
But really, what the hell is wrong with these people?
