Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

Barbara Boxer, on what apparently is the greatest outrage she’s ever seen in Congress.

A lot of them are sleeping in their offices. You tell me one other person that you know Mr. President that is allowed to sleep in the office of their corporation that they may work for. As far as I know, there is nobody. They don’t pay any rent. They sleep in their offices. So they do all these things. They don’t help the housing crisis and they sleep in their offices.

You know, I often give comedians who get into trouble for offensive non-PC jokes a lot of slack. Comedy is *hard*, after all.

Who knew that manufactured outrage was even more difficult to do without sounding tone-deaf?

  1. If only Boxer would spend more time asleep on the job… and I say that as a constituent of hers.

  2. Do you think there is any chance that Babs is similarly outraged at the Democrat members of the Wisconsin legislature who took a bus out of town so they could avoid voting on the union issues facing the state? Personally, I think they should all be forced out of office for this stunt.
