Careful, this one has a bit of a kick to it.
Chris Hayes invited Republican Congressman Jeff Denham on to discuss the Congressman's lonely uphill (hell, vertical) struggle to get any kind of decent, humane immigration reform past the solid wall of bigoted Republican stupid that blockades the United State Congress.
However, being a Republican, Congressman Denham is also congenitally unable to admit the simple fact that Congress is currently fucked in the head because it has Republicans in it. As such he pulled so hard on the Both Sider bottle I feared that he may pass out and aspirate on his own bullshit (emphasis added):
HAYES: Yes. What happens to the Republican Party if the Republican Party is perceived -- and I would say rightly -- as the party that killed this last best chance of reform?DENHAM: Well, certainly over the last decade or so, you can blame both parties, both parties have made mistakes. The president certainly had control of both houses and the presidency and could have gotten this through.But right now you know the Senate has pretty much said put up or shut up. Now it`s the House`s job to act and I`m going to continue to push to get this done. I think what really causes challenges in the election are those extremes that say outrageous things and continue to label the brand of my party or the outrageous things that have been said on the other side of the aisle as well.HAYES: Congressman Jeff Denham, just for those keeping track at home, that`s 185 Democrats on that bill and two Republicans. Thank you so much for your time.
If Congressman Denham is ever run out of the House of Representatives (Motto: The creepy, angry, meth-slinging younger stepbrother of the World's Greatest Deliberative Body) he has a bright future cadging Green Room snacks on the Sunday talk show circuit, or playing "Marco Rubio" --
...In case you missed Jon Stewart's award-verging "interview" with Marco Rubio, here is your rush transcript of Senator Rubio's answer to Jon Stewart every single time Mr. Stewart tried very respectfully to point out that Senator Rubio was, um, lying, and that the relentless, pathological obstructiveness of the Republican Party was unmatched by anything Democrats have done in modern history."Both sides...""Well, you know, both sides...""Both Democrats and Republicans...""That's just politics...""The Democrats left us no choice...""Both sides...""Democrats and Republicans...""Both sides...""Both Democrats and Republicans..."And so forth, to the point of being comical...
