So how'd this never-ending week of insanity finish up? With a scrum, as House Republicans desperately tried to get named to the big Benghazi "select committee." Half of the Republicans in the House asked to be on the committee. The ones who didn't get chosen for the committee will just have to be crazy over Benghazi by themselves. I'm talkin' to you Darrell Issa.
Meanwhile, Ann Coulter has some advice for Monica Lewinsky. That's a great place for Monica to go for advice - from possibly the only person on earth who has made worse life decisions than Monica. Ann says that Monica needs to become a Christian. If Ann Coulter is the example of what being a Christian is, then Monica would be better off worshipping Satan. After all, Satan's ethics are closer to the teachings of Jesus Christ than Ann Coulter's are.
Rep. Michele Bachmann had a new cause this week - defeating a proposed National Women's History Museum. Bachmann said "the legislation lacks the necessary safeguards to ensure the proposed museum will not become an ideological shrine to abortion." Evidently in Michele's mind, the only thing that women have ever accomplished is gaining the right to abortion - and she objects to it. Hello, Michele! Women accomplish amazing things every day. Women even successfully fought for the right to vote in America! Of course, it's not clear whether Bachmann is totally in favor of that either.
Sen. Harry Reid said on the floor of the Senate this week that the Koch brothers are one of the "main causes" of global warming. Be careful, Harry - you don't want them turning the heat up on us even more! Yes, the Koch brothers are making global warming much worse. But they also contribute to the opera and the ballet, which are air-conditioned. So at least they're providing a way for their friends to beat the heat.
Finally, Cliven Bundy made it back into the headlines this week. The racist rancher from Nevada is now offering history lessons via YouTube. Seriously! The only person dumber than Cliven Bundy is anybody who would listen to him. In order to get access to the videos though, you have to sign up for Bundy's email list. Wow! If you're looking for a list of gullible morons? That has to be the most valuable email list in the world! Looks like the GOP will be crawling back to Cliven Bundy after all.
