I will be inducting a new member to my Hall of Shame daily as long as the government shutdown lasts. There is enough lunatics in congress that it will take more than a month to fill the hall. So let’s get started.
Today’s inductee is Representative John Culberson, who represents Houston, Texas.
When the republicans met to decide what to do about the continuing resolution to fund the government, this is how Culberson recounts the events: “The whole room [said]: ‘Let’s vote!’ I said, like 9/11, ‘Let’s roll!”
This shows how far removed from reality this man is. In his warped mind and inflated ego, shutting down the federal government, causing harm to our economy, our security, withholding needed government services to millions of Americans is the equivalent of the brave act of the passengers who thwarted the hijackers of one of the planes on 911.
I’m sorry Mr. Culberson but in this analogy, you are not one of those brave men who prevented the hijackers from flying yet another plane into a building (possibly the White House or Capital Building). No sir, in that analogy, you would be one of the terrorists. You are holding the nation hostage, because you have been unable to accomplish your goals thru legitimate democratic processes.
Shame on you for sullying the memory of those heroes by linking it to your act of extortion and blackmail. You sir are a disgrace to your office. I hope and pray that the voters in your district see you for the knucklehead you are and replace you with a public servant worthy of your office.
Congratulations on being the first inductee to my hall of shame. There were many candidates for that honor, but the quote above put you at the head of pack.
