Bad Lawyer of the Day
Climate-change denier and HCR pearl-clutcher Cleta Mitchell: “There is a lot of discussion among various lawyers and we’ve had some conference calls,” said Cleta Mitchell, a Washington attorney long active in GOP circles. “People are just distraught that the Democrats are even contemplating doing something like this. It’s utter lawlessness to deem a bill passed without voting for it. It’s horrific.” [Politico]
Extremely disingenuous coming from the group that threatened to filibuster everything in the Senate requiring a super majority of 60. It used to be 51-50 or 51-49 if I recall. Buncha assholes.
You’re just pissed because every fucking road block you motherfuckers threw up got bypassed.
I guess Ms. Mitchell must have *really* hated the ’94 Congress with Newt at the helm – apparently, they passed something like 30+ bills this way.
Still waiting for Newt himself to weigh in on this; or perhaps he’s actually developed a vestigial shame organ…
@ManchuCandidate: I wonder how much collective damage these people have done?
I don’t disagree about the world class hypocrisy on display regarding “deemed passed”. Some of the shenanigans used by Republicans to pass the prescription drug benefit were even worse. As I recall the vote failed but leadership left the vote open until the wee hours of the morning so that sufficient votes could be bought off and changed.
That said, as a matter of historical accuracy, the only meaningful roadblocks to this bill becoming law are 100% Democrat.
You are correct. It’s now how many Demrats pull out the knives.
Bajillions. In dollars and lives. All to keep their ideology pure.
I knew this bitch when she was a progressive Dem state rep in OK, before she married a sleaze-bucket with oil money and sold her soul. I actually went to a fundraiser for her. Ewww.
@Mistress Cynica: I guess you were unable to intervene with regard to her hair?
Is Cleta a feminized form of Cletus?
No, seriously, is it?
@mellbell: I wondered the same thing …
@mellbell: I think so, actually. Her maiden name was Deathridge.
@SanFranLefty: She has hair like cat fur. The best gays couldn’t help her.
@Mistress Cynica: Deathridge? Was she a Cherokee Princess? And…the gheyz couldn’t or wouldn’t help her?
Deathridge = awesome rock musician or action hero name
@redmanlaw: Sounds like a trail I hiked in Stanislaus County.
