Yesterday millions thousands severals of Tea Party protestors descended on Capitol Hill, where they were joined by House Republicans in a rally against health care reform. "Kill the bill," they yelled, because it rhymes. (No "asphyxiation for the legisation"?)
Reliably crazy Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert was one of the lawmakers who spoke on the topic of abortion — which is still not going to be funded by federal dollars, despite the yelling — and he brandished a prop to illustrate his remarks: an actual abortion! You know, the paper abortion. The one everyone's yelling about? The health care bill? The bill itself is an abortion, because it, uhh… here, let Rep. Gohmert explain.
Because of all the demons! Of course.
That is what the D after Nancy Pelosi's name stands for, right?

Congress is taking a break for Thanksgiving, and as Jon Stewart pointed out on last night's Daily Show, it's bad news for everyone. After all, without Congress in session, who will warn us that the terrorists are going to kill us all, who will offer detailed plans for killing us all to the terrorists, and, perhaps most importantly, who will make the founders perpetually spin in their graves? That's where they get electricity for heaven, you know?
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.

I have a feeling this is not what Michael Steele had in mind when he promised to re-brand the GOP has newer and hipper…
Don't you hate, though, how these funny vial clips often make unkind assertions about politicians and leave you wondering if they have any proof to back up their claims. Well, turns out, there's a post for that.
