Stupid is as stupid does

Everyone knows President George W. Bush is a few beers short of a six-pack when it comes to intellect but now we have inescapable proof that the Democrats who run Congress are just as dumb and stupid.

After doing something the new Congress just doesn’t do: Override a veto by the imperialistic Bush, the numnuts who run Congress may find that the whole thing is meaningless because of a stupid mistake.

And these are the folks we elected to lead our nation.

Reports The Associated Press:

The House overwhelmingly rejected President Bush’s veto Wednesday of a $290 billion farm bill, but what should have been a stinging defeat for the president became an embarrassment for Democrats.

Only hours before the House’s 316-108 vote, Bush had vetoed the five-year measure, saying it was too expensive and gave too much money to wealthy farmers when farm incomes are high. The Senate then was expected to follow suit quickly.

Action stalled, however, after the discovery that Congress had omitted a 34-page section of the bill when lawmakers sent the massive measure to the White House.

That means Bush vetoed a different bill from the one Congress passed, raising questions that the eventual law would be unconstitutional. Republicans objected when Democrats proposed passing the missing section separately and sending that to Bush.
