Just how facepalmy does the US Congress seem now at the edge of the so-called fiscal cliff? Remember, they got here thanks to an intentionally crappy law originally meant to serve only as a motivation for Congress to pass a better law before it took effect. That’s amazing. But it all makes just so much more sense with the help of Floor Charts: Charts from the Floor of the US Congress, a new Tumblr that’s one of the better tickets I’ve seen into the inanity of the organization that this country somehow elected to make our laws. If nothing else, we expect politicians to be smooth talkers, but apparently they can’t speak without the comfort of absurd props. Does your space suddenly smell like old man too?
Yeah, it’s pretty gross. Here’s a few favorites.
Speaking of the fiscal cliff. Full disclosure: I’ve used this image too.
Please also note that Gohmert compares Andrew Brietbart to Abraham Lincoln in this speech-thing.
If you’re one of the poor saps charged with blowing these things up and printing them, please drop me a line.
This was the first of these I saw and immediately assumed all these charts were fake. If only.
