Because there are no more pressing problems
Posted by Jill | 6:03 AM
If you need further proof that Republicanism is completely bankrupt of policy ideas, here's Michele Bachmann's plan for Republican governance:
According to Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., the House Republicans should exercise their power to subpoena and hold continuous hearings. Speaking to a gathering for the GOP Youth Convention on July 22 in Washington, D.C., she emphasized this point.

“Oh, I think that’s all we should do,” Bachmann said. “I think that all we should do is issue subpoenas and have one hearing after another. And expose all the nonsense that is going on. And it’s very important when we come back that we have constitutional conservative leadership because the American people’s patience is about this big.”

Sort of like Michele Bachmann's brain. But there you have it, folks, as your wingnut relatives march off to the polls this November bound and determined to teach that Kenyan a lesson. No plans to revive the economy. No plans for how to deal with Iraq, Afghanistan, and Iran. No plans for dealing with climate change (which they don't believe exists). No plans for anything, except trying once again to destroy a Democratic presidency. There's an Ahab and the Great White Whale joke in there somewhere, but I'm too dispirited to try and find it.

I figured this would be coming, if they get elected in November. Since the Repubs are on a tape loop ("Rea-gan, Rea-gan,Rea-gan...") why not re-do the scandal hunting of the Clinton years all over again? Yep, putting taxpayer's money to good use....
