So the Republicans are staging a work slowdown.
Shouldn't the media get on their case about that?

Isn't that one of those nasty union tactics?

:sarcasm:

3. Republicons go AWOL
Freaking republicons are draft dodging work shirkers...the lot of them.

They should give back their 'government handout' pay checks since they ain't earing them.

they screw up everything they touch, anyway.

7. A work slowdown?
Does that mean they're spying less on their neighbors and co-workers? Or are they just walking more slowly to the bank to cash their government checks (whining about the government the whole way)?

15. Is that a metaphor...
...for when their parents come down from the world of Light to visit these nutbars in their Caverns of Hate?

Unless, of course, they're pissing off their mothers by failing to do the chores they are expected to do in lieu of paying rent on their rooms in their mothers' basements.

16. A little while ago, I heard Debbie Stabenow pitching a
fit on the Senate Floor because the Republicans refused to consent that hearings be held while the Senate was in session. She said she was supposed to chair a hearing with State Department and other officials on the training of Afghan soldiers. So, it does look like they are doing everything they can to hold things up.

17. Send in some SCABS
I'll cross the line and do the work! I'll compensate by voting pro-union on everything else.
