Of course none of this compares to the Republican reaction to President Obama warning Americans of the dangers of eating yellow snow during this week's radio address. Immediately after the address House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell held a press conference to announce the introduction a bill that would preserve the rights of Americans to eat yellow snow and to tout the health benefits of eating yellow snow. The Golden Retriever, Beagle, and Collie lobbyists appeared on stage behind Congressman Boehner and Senator McConnell with tails wagging which is being taken as a victory for their clients.
Shortly afterwards Rush Limbaugh went on the air and stated that conservatives across the southern states were up in arms about the socialist agenda that prevents snow from falling in the south, thus preventing southerners from enjoying yellow snow. The Drudge Report and Breitbart.com have picked up the story and have posted videos of a janitor working at the USDA stating that, “Yes…no snow…in…the south…socialism.” It is unknown at this time if the video was manipulated in anyway.
I wish those on the right would just grow up. This kind of thing stopped being funny when I was about ten years old.
