There is so much in the news today that leads one to question if reason truly has departed the human race. Well, today while watching the Jobs Bill debate on the House floor we captured this video. Rep. Steven LaTourette (R-OH) expresses for all of us the reductio ad absurdum we have been subjected to by the Democratic majority.


We thank you Congressman LaTourette. You, sir have been able to define this debate accurately and clearly while causing us to laugh- out-loud at the absurdity of it all.


This is seven minutes and twenty-one seconds of pure political comedy. Who was it that said the Republican party intellectuals were dead? Thinking circles around the majority seems to be the order of the day. It isn't that we don't understand. It's that we do.


Regardless, the bill passed. How's it allocated? According to Rep. LaTourette, out of the fifty states plus the District of Columbia; twenty-two states receive nothing, and four states walk away with fifty-eight percent of which California receives thirty percent (of the highway funding included in this bill).
