Liberal Utopia

What your world would be if everything liberals wanted, they got. Open the door at the bottom of its Elysium fa├žade and take a glimpse of hell.

Qerry the do-nothing senator

 

Even when al-Qerry wasn't playing hooky from the job the people of Massachusetts hired him for, he still didn't really get much done.


H
einz, the company owned by T-Rant'n'Raveza's late first husband, has 57 of its 79 factories outsourced overseas and is famous for its 57 varieties of sauces. By funny coincidence, 57 is also the number of bills and resolutions Flopface has sponsored during his entire twenty years in the Senate (averaging less than three a year), with only one becoming a law that might help even a small tangible number of the American people.

Fifteen are not bills but affect just the Senate (e.g., rules amendments or Sense of the Senate resolutions). The remaining 42 required passage by both the Senate and the House of Representatives, but only thirteen made it that far. Of those 13, two failed becoming a law and one was a concurrent resolution that affected just the two chambers. That makes ten Qerry-sponsored bills which eventually became laws.

What were these ten al-Qerry Bills? Four were responsible for designating "World Population Awareness Week" (one for 1989 and another for 1991), "Vietnam Veterans Memorial 10th Anniversary Day," and "National POW/MIA Recognition Day." Two were for redesignating a federal building as the "Frederick C. Murphy Federal Center" and awarding a posthumous congressional gold medal to Jackie Robinson. Two more authorized appropriations for the National Sea Grant College Program Act and the Marine Mammal Protection Act. One added reporting requirements and a pilot program to the Small Business Act's women's business center program (undoubtedly another ineffectual pork-barrel project). The tenth (which really passed as House bill H.R. 1860) reauthorized the Small Business Technology Transfer Program.

Not much to show for twenty years. Of course, he still has four more left of his term in the Senate. Maybe he can at last get that Universal Government Care for The Children and Sundry Minorities and Total Ban of Talk Radio Act® he's always wanted before his home state retires both him and Senator al-Qennedy Mary Jo Kopechne's murderer and goes completely Republican. Although, given his do-nothing record of "accomplishment," the likelihood of its winding up a no-show too is metaphysically infinite.

NonCBSish Clarification


Dear Readers,

Notwithstanding the first comment, the subject of my post isn't billionaire TerRAYzah's record but gold digger Mamma's tBoy al-Qerry's do-nothing one. From her compassionate "scumbags" statement directed at her detractors, to her remarkably intelligent "now shove it" dismissal of a reporter who caught her lying about her "un-American traits" comment, plus her generous "I wouldn't be surprised if [Osama bin Laden] appeared [before the election]" tinfoil-hat conspiracy theory, as well as her championing Enron CEO Ken Lay when he was a Heinz Foundation board member, not to mention how she advocated forcing children in Florida to just "eat cake go naked for awhile" after hurricanes struck that state, on top of her supporting a very shady loan to bail out Hanoi John's campaign last December, even the passing reference she gets from me in the original post, I'm not at all ashamed to say, is much more than I believe she deserves anywhere on my site. She can continue working on her artless We'll MoveOn Peacefully Maybe Tomorrow But I Doubt Its and those other worthy causes after her kept man loses. She sure won't have any chance of doing so as First LooseCannon.
