A Moron For All Seasons

During his speech at a National Press Club luncheon, House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.), questioned the point of lawmakers reading the health care bill:

“I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill,’” said

“What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t
have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the
Hey Conyers, if it is too hard to read the bill and even harder to understand it; VOTE NO!

Well, at least Conyers is stupid enough to attempt and explain why doesn't read important bills. The rest just make believe that they care. What a despicable conglomerate of dunces.

In case you are not familiar with this clown:

In letters sent separately to the House Ethics Committee, the FBI, and the US Attorney's office by two former aides of Conyers, they alleged that Conyers used his staff to work on several local and state campaigns and forced them to baby-sit and chauffeur his children.

In late December 2006, Conyers "accepted responsibility" for possibly violating House rules. A statement issued December 29, 2006, by the House Ethics Committee Chairman Doc Hasting (R-Wash.) and Ranking Minority Member Howard Berman (D-Calif.), said that Conyers acknowledged what he characterized as a "lack of clarity" in his communications with staff members regarding their official duties and responsibilities, and accepted responsibility for his actions. In deciding to drop the matter, Hastings and Berman state: After reviewing the information gathered during the inquiry, and in light of Representative Conyers’ cooperation with the inquiry, we have concluded that this matter should be resolved through the issuance of this public statement and the agreement by Representative Conyers to take a number of additional, significant steps to ensure that his office complies with all rules and standards regarding campaign and personal work by congressional staff.
