I mean to blog on this earlier in the week, but it slipped my mind, but Mona of Unqualified Offerings reminded me to do so.

While I was critical of Limbaugh’s simplistic view of all things political, I think that Congressional resolutions condemning Limbaugh are just are vacuous as the one aimed at MoveOn.org. Neither is an appropriate usage of Congressional time or power and both smack of nothing more than the scoring of cheap political points.

As Mona correctly notes:

It is not the proper role of our federal legislative body to pass on the commentary of political activists and/or pundits.

Amen to that.

There is plenty of more pressing business for the Congress of the United States to address than whether this commentator or that group has said something that offended someone in uniform. Indeed, last I checked, they are still behind on passing this year’s budget…

    Great point! When someone is politically killing themselves you should just get out of the way and let them kill themselves. Resolutions by Congress on issues like this only change the focus. Congress should work on the serious issues facing us and let Limbaugh step on his own tongue.

  2. Bill Says:

    It appears to be easier to condem folks rather than make a decision that actually means something. Obviously, the Democratic run Congress needs to make more use-less decisions to help fix all the problems that they claim is wrong with the way that the Republican run Congress ran things. What? You mean that they haven’t made any decisions on anything yet? Makes me wonder whether anything was wrong to begin with. Do I sound sarcastic? Sorry, but that’s the way I’ve seen it. BTW, WAR EAGLE!

    Hear! Hear!
    So the Republicans do something stupid with a resolution feigning indignant outrage at the MoveOn.org Petraeus/Betray us ad. Then the Democrats think, they are doing something by matching tit for tat?

    Knock off the bullshit I say and start preparing article of impeachment and denying funding for the war, and establishing a definite timetable for withdrawl. Then I might be impressed!
