Remember the moronic letter sent to Iran by those wingnut Senators? Who am I kidding? Of course you do. Some of their aides are claiming that it was just a joke:
Republican aides were taken aback by what they thought was a lighthearted attempt to signal to Iran and the public that Congress should have a role in the ongoing nuclear discussions. Two GOP aides separately described their letter as a “cheeky” reminder of the congressional branch’s prerogatives.
“The administration has no sense of humor when it comes to how weakly they have been handling these negotiations,” said a top GOP Senate aide.
Oh, those cheeky GOP monkeys. What a zany crew.
I’m used to Republicans making shit up and flat out lying but this takes the cake. That mean old Mau Mau Kenyan Nazi Commie President can’t take a joke. Of course, the only time nuclear weapons have ever been funny was in Dr. Strangelove, and Rotten Cotton and the Gang of 47 aren’t known for their satirical skills. They’re best known for unintentional comedy, like their hero Bibi making like Wile E. Coyote with his Acme bomb chart:
I wonder what excuse they’ll use next for violating the separation of powers? Our grandmothers died? We got a flat tire on the way to the Hill? The mind reels.
Sadly, this Tom Cottonfoolery gave this week’s malaka what he wanted: publicity, bad publicity except for the GOP base, which likes its meat raw and stupid. My idiot Governor got jealous and said he wanted to sign the letter. No surprise there, it was written at a 4th Grade level much like PBJ’s own op-ed pieces. Sorry if I’ve offended any literate 4th graders out there.
Someone should do a mashup video of the gang of 47 mishigas and the whole Okie frat boy flap. I have a title, which I will donate out of the goodness of my heart: SAE DOES THE SENATE. Hmm, sounds like a racist porn movie…
I’ll give Randy Newman the last word:
