It's been a while since I awarded a BoVLB. Oh, there have been lots of stupid stuff flying about. But nothing really tripped my trigger so to speak to award the trophy again. This weekend though. Oh, this weekend...
I hereby award the BoVLB travelling trophy to two recipients this time. Our winners this time? Why none other than Sen. Ben Nelson (D, Nebraska) and Sen. Mary Landrieu (D, Louisiana). It seems these two intrepid renegade democrats stood by they're moral and political objections to the "Universal Health Care" bill, or whatever it's called this hour. Well, stood by till the cash till rang up 100,000,000 dollars each. That's one hundred million dollars for you non-math types. Yes sir, each Senator managed to wring a little more blood out of each and every taxpayer in this country. One of the truly epic things about this is they, over one snowed in weekend in DC, managed to screw everyone in this country down to our grandchildren's and great grandchildren's generations. Take that Wilt Chamberlain.
So, for these two members of the "no pork" party, the "transparency" government, signed off on a bill that no one except select members of ONE party has seen.
Here's to you. Enjoy the trophy.
