Freshman congressperson Justin Amash (R-Mich.) is already proving how invaluable he is to the country with his outside-the-box, breath-of-fresh-air problem solving skills.
Just look at this brilliant solution he came up with for the problem of angry constituents in town hall meetings that many Republicans who favor ending Medicare have been forced to endure: Just don't let them in…
Rep. Justin Amash held a townhall meeting sponsored by a Tea Party group on Saturday, but a group of senior citizens and two reporters… were denied entry to the event…
About eight senior citizens arrived at the Prince Conference Center on the Calvin College campus for a chance to question Amash concerning his voting record in regards to eliminating Medicare.
Once barred from attending the event, the seniors stood out in the parking lot where they were taking questions from this reporter and Tanya Somanader of Think Progress, the two members of the media who were denied access. Eventually, six security guards arrived on the scene and said that both the seniors and the reporters had to leave.
Oh my God! That is so ingenious is its simplicity. Why did no politician ever think of this before? If you never have to deal with the public you represent, you can pretty much do whatever you want, no questions asked.
Hey, has anybody floated the idea of not letting old people vote, either? That could help get past this whole Medicare controversy.
On the other hand, it could wipe out the GOP voting base.

This should have been easy: Sarah Palin releases financial disclosure forms, world learns that she received a $1.25 million (!!) advance for her memoir, blogger Photoshops silly fake image of the memoir's cover, commenters respond with remarks like "Trig H. Christ, is that in American dollars?" and "not bad considering she did not even write this thing herself" and "whatevr you are just jelus Sarah Rulez."
Palin's report also lists her as owner of "Pie Spy LLC," described as a marketing business. It's referred to as "Services for the Elderly and Persons with Disabilities" in the state's corporation database. The address of the business is listed as the office of Palin's lawyer in Anchorage, Thomas Van Flein.
What the… "Pie Spy"? Marketing services? Elderly and disabled people?
You know, if this were coming from anyone else, I'd be wondering how it's possible to combine these things into a single concept that makes sense. But we're talking about Sarah Palin! Words simply lose all meaning whenever she enters the picture, which is why soft fusion blackboard pillow in the climbing chicken open green.

Oh, well, if you're gonna frame the health care protests like this, then consider me convinced…
You know, for a minute, I thought that actually was Barack Obama cruelly whipping an elderly couple. But then I thought, wait a minute… I've never seen Obama wear a tan suit.
