ASTOUNDING! - GOP Pisses On The Inauguration & MLK DAY

Virginia GOP Pulls ‘Dirty Trick’ On Inauguration Day
01.21.2013 — 07:05 PM
A Footnote To The Virginia Senate Story

As mentioned earlier, seizing on the absence of a Democratic senator who happens to be a veteran of the civil rights movement and was in Washington, on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, for the second inauguration of the country’s first black president, Republicans in the evenly split Virginia state Senate pushed through a surprise mid-decade redistricting plan to try to gain decisive control of the body in the next election.

We’re not done yet.

At the end of this wild day, the “Senate adjourned in memory or (sic) General Thomas J. ‘Stonewall’ Jackson,” according to the minutes of the session. Jan. 21 is the Confederate general’s birthday.

1. The mid-decade redistricting plan?

 

Rejected, and the Republicans will be ordered to go to an immediate psych evaluation for mental competence (Bet you 95% will fail)

6. So, they adjourned for a guy who died fighting AGAINST the USA

They should be tried for treason. And to think that they're probably the same people who say the President is anti-American...
