The Blind Leading the Blind: Louis Gohmert, Justin Beiber, and President Putin

Republicans this week: one said women should "submit to their husbands," another discussed women's "libidos" at a major speech, one former Governor pleaded not guilty while declining a plea bargain which would have spared his wife from a separate corruption trial, another is being investigated by federal prosecutors and legislative committees for corruption and abuse of power charges, a candidate in a primary called for the hanging of President Obama, a wealth political donor was indicted for campaign contribution fraud, and none of them can figure out why winter is cold........................... Stupid Hypocrite of the Week Award goes to Congressman Louis Gohmert of Texas who voted during the ACA debate to require Congress, the President, and all Congressional Staff to purchase health insurance through the federal insurance exchanges and now refuses to do so and blames Obamacare for his lack of health insurance................... Meanwhile, Obamacare has now provided over 3,000,000 Americans with health insurance through these same exchanges, many more millions are being covered by the Medicaid expansions in the states, and another Republican Governor decided to expand Medicaid in Utah,......................... Nebraska weather is weird - despite below zero temps in the last few days, the temperatures have spiked up just enough so that I have played golf twice in the last week. And Nebraska is considering a new state slogan to replace "Nebraska - The Good Life." Among alternatives I've heard: Nebraska - Where South Dakota Ends, Nebraska - We Have a Zoo, Nebraska - It Could be Worse, Nebraska - At Least We're not Kansas....... I'm sure the folks who dream up slogans will do better. .................... The Russian Sochi Olympics is a progressive disaster so far with Russian President Putin's repressive anti-gay policies, the terrorist threats, the demonstrations, etc. I read somewhere the death toll already is at 25...... All of this for some bobsled racing and skiing.......................... I saw a report that Andrea Mitchell, on her own MSNBC television news program, interrupted a panel discussion on her show about the National Security Administration and spying on Americans to bring us a special report on the arrest of Justin Beiber. I've never been able to determine just who he is .

Hi Bud--

How about "Nebraska: Where the Rednecks Hang Out" or "Nebraska: Where the Old South Begins"?
