There was a pretty good bit on last night's Daily Show about the sideshow that was the Kathleen Sebelius hearing yesterday, but our favorite part comes at about the 3:30 mark.
After trying out a line about how some people like drinking out of a red solo cup and not something with a crystal stem while questioning Sebelius, our own Marsha Blackburn proceeded to get up, leave the hearing, and repeat the exact same line for the boys at Fox Business Channel.
There's about a million things wrong with this — not the least of which is the bullshit populism of the red solo cup; how about just hammering the administration for things that don't work — but is it too much to ask for the Congresswoman from Williamson Co. to wait until the end of a three hour hearing she was demanding before going off to do yet another TV appearance?
All of this belies the one salient fact about her grandstanding: Blackburn gives us a false choice. You can have red solo cups WITH crystal stems.
