John Boehner’s Boner

John Boehner has appointed Michele Bachmann to the house intelligence committee.

OK, let’s have a contest. I’ll start.

Appointing Michele Bachmann to the Intelligence Committee is like …

… giving a Nobel prize to the Three Stooges.

  1. Putting Bachmann on the committee is like a brilliant maneuver to confuse those who spy on the committee with a steady supply of misinformation and disinformation.

  2. It’s a brilliant ploy to prove his and Bachmann’s pet theory that the government is incompetent.

    Self-fulfilling prophecies, gotta love them.

  3. Like appointing Ron Paul as head of the Fed oversight committee. Of course it makes sense, even as it is nonfunctional and stupid, because GOP boilerplate is that government doesn’t work. These appointment help guarantee government won’t work. Wash, rinse, repeat.

    At one point the GOP was concerned with government working. Then they shifted toward terrorism and not allowing it to function if they were not in charge. Now, placed in charge, they can’t give up on the anti-government reflex.

    Having driven the system into the ditch they now find it is going to be easier to sink it in the mud until it sinks out of sight than get it back on the road. Having criticized government for so long they have forgotten the function it serves.

  4. Appointing Michele Bachmann to the Intelligence Committee is like …

    … is, like, totally the worst idea ever. For real.

    …is like.ly to result in a disaster.

    …is like appointing a rotting corpse with the head blown half-way off…uh…to the Intelligence Committee.

    And, regarding the title of this post, I just realized that Boehner’s Boner would likely look just like a carrot. Where’s the brain-bleach?

  5. Wait…I thought we had this thread over @PZ’s place the other day. Oops, my bad, that was “Jeebus is…”.
    I wonder how many of the comments on that thread would fit here?

  6. Like taking a YEC on an archeological dig.

    Based on years of nursing on a transplant unit (liver), I think Boehner has liver disease caused by ETOH. His orange coloring is jaundice and his crying spells are classic alcoholic behaviour. Are we safe having someone so unfit in such a high government position?

  7. …appointing Bernie Madoff as Treasury Secretary?

    …appointing Ted Nugent as Secretary of the Interior?

    …appointing Dick Cheney to manage U.S. energy policy?

  8. â?¦ like calling creationism science.

    â?¦ like letting the Institute for Historical Review have control over WWII history books.

    â?¦ like letting Rapiscan dictate what levels of backscatter radiation are safe.

    â?¦ like believing what the Council for Tobacco Research has to say about cigarettes.

  9. …like praying when your kids get sick.

    …like treating cancer with homeopathy.

    …more like treating it with increased cigarette smoking, now that I think about it.
