From The Hill:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi slammed Republicans for holding a nearly all-male hearing Thursday about the White House’s birth-control mandate while Democratic women on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee staged a walk-out.
I'm sorry, but I just can't appreciate or enjoy the outrage. Not any longer. These GOP congressional clowns, not to mention their stumblebum doppelgangers on the presidential trail, have been so tone deaf and so tuned out and so completely ideologically insulated and so thoroughly removed from mainstream America for so long, they have quite simply escaped the orbit of my general notice or punctuated concern.
They are now in their fourth year of full-time, professional disingenuity and adolescent antics. They have lied, dissembled, conspired, obstructed, delayed, shot their mouths off and closed their minds so often I have utterly lost the news value -- and certainly the shock value -- of their inexpressible improprieties and just plain lack of decency.
I realize that my withered withdrawal from these blogospheric explosions of outrage is, in a way, a surrender. I suppose each time (meaning daily, or hourly) the GOP again displays its diseased infantilism, I should add my voice of alarmed disbelief and thundering disapproval to all the others. But I look at it this way: If the American electorate has not by now comprehended that this once Grand Old Party is but a hopeless collection of cretinous misfits and moronic cutthroats, then the American electorate never will.
