  1. From Greg Sargent's Plum Line today:

    "AND YOUR DEPRESSING POLL FINDING OF THE DAY: A new poll from Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind finds:

    The survey asked three questions about the government: Which party currently controls the House of Representatives? What are the three branches of government? Name the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. All told, one third of respondents were unable to answer any of the questions correctly, 26 percent got one right, 27 percent got two right, and just 13 percent correctly answered all three.

    Interestingly, those who were unable to answer all three were more likely to believe Obama is not a U.S. citizen and that we found a weapons of mass destruction program in Iraq."

    Anyone surprised in the least by any of this? I genuinely fear for my country's future with so many complete right-wing dimwits, imbeciles and brainless morons running around shrieking mindlessly. Until these people pass permanently from the scene, there can be no hope for our nation.

     

    1. Polls routinely show the bill of rights would not pass muster with the electorate if you simply state the amendments as propositions and don't say they are already part of the constitution.  But look on the bright side: that means we really do have a chance to take Moddy's guns away!wink

  2. Day 1:  Colorado villages statewide struggle with the quandary of coping without their idiots . . . 

    (. . . don't pretend you didn't realize there was a good reason why they continue to elect so many of these unrepentant serial fools?!?)

    1. I don't believe there's a standing committee on ethics.  Ethics committees are formed ad hoc based on procedures outlined in the respective houses' rules of procedure.

      There is a Legislative Ethics Board of four members appointed by the maj/min leaders in each house, but they're around to issue opinions (all three of which can be found in the same location linked above).  It might be the leaders themselves who are members on the board, but it's too irrelevant to report.  You could probably call Legislative Legal Services and find out, if you're curious.

  3. Kirby Delauter

    From the, "as it turns out, some press is bad press" and "thank goodness they do not represent you" departments – Kirby Delauter:

    Knowing Councilman Kirby Delauter as we do, we weren't surprised that he threatened The Frederick News-Post with a lawsuit because we had, he says — and we're not making this up — been putting Kirby Delauter's name in the paper without Kirby Delauter’s authorization. Attorneys would be called, Kirby Delauter said.
