Six GOP congresspeople are vowing to repeal some not quite yet new legislation once it is passed into law and thus becomes eligible for repeal.
It's just like the old saying goes: Obstruct early and often…
"We know it’s not enough just to fight ObamaCare — it could still pass," the Club for Growth's "Repeal It!" Web site says. "So our pledge is to Repeal It!"
The first two lawmakers to sign on were Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., and Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. — both conservative heroes for their dedication to hacking away at government. Within an hour of the pledge going live, a handful of others had joined them — Louisiana Sen. David Vitter and Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Texas Rep. Jeb Hensarling and Kansas Reps. Jerry Moran and Lynn Jenkins.
This is a nice effort on their part, but it doesn't really go far enough in my opinion.
These guys should be on the front line of conservative activism, fighting to have marriage equality instituted federally so that they can get that repealed, working tirelessly to criminalize Christianity so that they can they fight back against the persecution of the church, and cooperating with scientists to create blasphemous human/donkey hybrids that they can have rounded up and executed.
I mean, why not go all the way? Am I right?

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.

This is Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-KS), and everyone's chattering about a thing she said during a recent town hall, in an attempt to explain if/how the GOP can get its act together to defeat Barack Obama in 2012…
"Republicans are struggling right now to find the great white hope," Jenkins said to the crowd. [...] "So don't, you know, lose faith if you are a conservative."
Now if it were me, and people were writing about my "racist" use of the phrase 'great white hope,' I'd be all, "Duh, I meant to say 'great white shark,' because as I'm sure you're aware Carcharodon carcharias is the biggest predatory fish in the world, which is obviously a metaphor for Republicans, who will require many rows of metaphorical teeth in order to defeat Barack Obama."
But hey, what do I know? Let's find out how Team Jenkins handles the spin…
[Spokesperson Mary] Geiger released the following statement on Jenkins' behalf: "There's no doubt the Republican Party has gone through some dark and challenging times in recent years, but thankfully bright young leaders have stepped up to lead the party into the future and she hopes to be a part of it."
Yep, I'd go with the sharks.
