Alas, the wackos are breaking out all over

EXCUSE ME, with so much wackiness further degrading the current political scene,  I'm having trouble keeping up with the worst of the worst to give my un-coveted Grumpy Abe Linguistic Lunacy (GALL) Award to.  I'm sort of leaning to the fatherly insight of Rep. Blake Farenthold, the Texas Republican, in response to President Obama's humane  initiative on immigration.  That's Farenthold in the photo, a daddy who shared such wisdom that the young folks who  arrived in America with their parents  as illegals didn't really have to come because they could have influenced their elders to stay home.  Right .  "Believe me," the congressman said to CNN's Soledad O'Brien, "my 16-year-old daughter has given me input on everything - pretty much everything the family wants to do."  Moral: Don't make a move on immigration policy until you've talked to your kids!

Hold it right there:  Maybe a group  GALL award should have gone to the Republican legislators in Michigan who banned a Democratic lawmaker - Lisa Brown - from the chamber because she uttered the word v----a   during a debate on abortion.  The seraphim-driven conservatives simply don't appreciate "vulgarity" , which tells you a helluva lot about  their arching manner toward the opposite sex.  One of these days  somebody is going to demand that all male lawmakers disclose whether they had vasectomies.  Sorry, folks.  V---------s.  Jeez.

These are the expressions of nuttiness that may have distracted you from the monumental struggle  in the presidential race in which McMitt Romney has yet to find a way to answer any questions directly.  That is particularly true of his response to the President's move on illegal immigration.  Romney will only say, after first assuring you that he is a successful businessman, not a politician,  that he will work with Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio to come up with a new plan in Congress.  Not so fast there, McMitt.  You've lost your crutch.  Rubio just said he is withdrawing any plan to move in a new direction on immigration. That leaves Romney with his only fall-back position  - self-deportation.   Hey, take a breath, McMitt,  and let my grandparents rest in peace.

Expect more crazy over the next few months. The inmates have taken over the asylum.

I don't think this is a matter of decorum. It is vagina envy, pure and simple.
