As a freelance pundit and political addict, I must pause to bow my head and give thanks for one small thing. Even after Sarah Palin stepped down from the public stage, we’ll always have Minnesota, home of Jesse Ventura, Al Franken and… our favorite member of Congress for high comedy.
Today, Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-HI) introduced a resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of Hawaii’s statehood. The resolution also proclaims the state as President Obama’s birthplace…
Just as the presiding chair of the House, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), was about to declare the resolution passed by voice vote, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) stood and objected:
BACHMANN: Mr. Speaker? I object to the vote on the grounds that a quorum is not present and make a point of order that a quorum is not present. […]
REP. ELIJAH CUMMINGS (D-MD): Further proceedings on this motion will be postponed.
I recently received an e-mail from El Tinklenberg requesting early campaign donations for another run at Bachmann. (I sent him money for it last time.) I previously posted here about another state representative who wants to run against her.
To quote Forrest Gump, “Sometimes there just aren’t enough rocks.”
