The Top Ten Conservative Idiots from Democratic Underground is in great form this week, from first to last (this is 10):
On Thursday, Wisconsin state Senator Tom Reynolds vowed to fight against the confirmation of Helene Nelson as head of the state Department of Health and Family Services. Said Reynolds, "I will do everything I can to thwart her appointment." But it turns out that there’s really nothing Reynolds can do to stop the appointment, because she was confirmed by the Senate a month and a half ago, on June 24. (For the record, Reynolds voted "yes", along with everyone else in the Wisconsin Senate.)
You know, voting “yes” a month and a half before your pledge isn’t really doing everything you can to thwart an appointment. Good luck with that.
