Powerline Blog - check it out.
Also over in Hot Air . . . more commentary.
Let me summarize: Duh.
Thank you, America, for checking your brains at the door and electing this nitwit.

And so, time to up my exemptions to the max. Let's see . . . me, Mrs. Workshop, Little Workshop, plus 1 . . . yeah, four exemptions ought to do it. It'd just meant that I pay a big chunk in April instead of giving that money up willingly all year long.
Note: While the Democrats are the Party of Stupid, the Republicans are oftimes the Party of Obtuseness. Don't worry; my disdain for idiots knows no bounds.

The two guys fiddling with stuff are the ordnance crew. Red shirts take care of things that go boom. The green shirt signifies the arresting gear/catapult crew.
But no matter! Because we have universal health care! That won't kick in for FOUR YEARS! But we get to pay the taxes now!
For the record, this is what the dumb-ass politicians in Washington DC have brought upon us.
This, on top of the great unemployment rate that we're enjoying, because, you know, if we DIDN'T pass that trillion-dollar crap sandwich, we'd be worse off. Because our government's track record of forecasting this stuff has proven time and again to be 100% accurate . . . .
But, in an effort to keep my sanity when the insane are running the country (into the ground), I've come up with my yearly list of "What I Bought The Federal Government." Now, if you see the roads around my house, you know I didn't buy them asphalt or concrete, because that stuff should have been used to fill in the craters that are doing their level best to destroy my truck's supsension.
No, I'm continuing the trend of supplying the United States Military with equipment. This year, I'm contributing to the FA-18 Super Hornet Fund. Now, these are the main fighter jets of the United States Navy, replacing the venerable F-14 Tomcat. The Tomcat was the jet that was the star of the movie "Top Gun," in case you're wondering. No, Tom Cruise did not star in that movie, he was second billing to the baddest-assed Cold War bird around. Anyways, the super hornet comes in at around $55 million, which means Mrs. Workshop and I are the proud contributors of . . . 0.0345% of one jet.(The blue missiles on the wingtips are training missiles, not live-fire weapons. Just so you know.)
Last year, it was 7.62mm NATO sniper rounds. This year it's part of a jet. Much better than paying Congresscritter Hank Johnson's salary.

Yes, I'm describing a Congresscritter. His name is Hank Johnson, and he represents the fine voters of Atlanta, Georgia. Thank you, Atlanta, for sending your best and brightest to Washington to represent you.
Admiral Robert Willard is the poor soul subjected to the Congresscritter's stupidity. I probably would have said something like "Well, Congressman, that's why we encourage our elected representatives to visit Guam. All the hot air helps keep the island afloat." Or maybe "I understand your concern, Congressman, and that's why we've invested billions of dollars in pontoons to ensure the island does not, in fact, capsize."
To the admiral's credit, he appears caught off-guard fora brief moment, but responds with an ever-classy "We don't anticipate that."
