Couldn’t happen to a more deserving public official. Holder is a slimeball.
But is being in contempt of Congress a bad thing?
Not for most of us.
A lot of people, including the staff of Capitol Hall Blue, are constantly in contempt of congress. Hell, even Jesus would have contempt of Congress.
Or maybe that should be having contempt for Congress. Either way, putting the words “contempt” and “Congress” together is redundant. There may be a more contemptible collection of scum out there but we’d be hard pressed to find them.
Legencary American humorist Will Rogers used to say:
If I make a joke, people laugh.
But if Congress makes a joke, it’s a law.
And when they make a law, it’s a joke.
Mark Twain had this to say about Congress:
It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.
Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But then I repeat myself.
Congress is a farce. The 535 men and women who occupy that so-called legislative branch of government are — by an large — a snake pit of partisan vipers who put personal and political agendas ahead of what is best for the country, sell their votes to fatcat contributors and turn our government into a laughing stock that keeps late night comedians and folks like Stephen Colbert living large.
Polls show used-car salesmen and insurance agents have a higher public approval rating than Congress.
Contempt of Congress? That should be a goal for all rational-thinking Americans, a dream for children to seek, a definition of success.
A CBS News/New York Times survey finds only 15 percent of those polled approve of the job Congress is doing while 77 percent say they should be thrown into the street and stomped into the dust.
Maybe we should have a national referendum to hold Congress in contempt of itself.
Now that’s a cause we would contribute to and support without question.
