Here's Congressman Marsha Blackburn throwing a hissy fit on the House floor yesterday over federal spending. See Marsha stamp her feet and shake her fists! It's "absolutely incomprehensible" the world fails to recognize her genius.
Blackburn wants to chop spending blindly by 5 percent. A 5 percent cut in the bill at issue yesterday would have wiped out new IRS initiatives to go after tax cheats. Oops! But it makes for a catchy little slogan: "Save a nickle on the dollar." Yesterday's vote was the fourth time Blackburn's colleagues have listened politely to her rant, then voted for her to go away.
