  1. Leahy can be a real partisan hack, but that’s dead on. Maybe each person who swears such an oath should have to take a test first.

  2. Man, she looks like a crack whore after a particularly taxing evening.

  3. I can’t YouTube at work. Can someone give me the gist?

  4. That’s great. She stepped in it, tried to back out, tripped and landed flat on her ass.

    You can see it in her eyes, too. The, “oh shit did I ever fuck that up” look.

  5. I can’t YouTube at work. Can someone give me the gist?

    Wow, you must have a tough time “reading” H&R most of the time then.

    This chick by the name of Taylor said she took an oath “to the president” and not to the constitution. Then she corrected her statement as being inaccurate, and instead said her oath to the constitution implied doing the best should could to support the president.

  6. She looks like Samantha Bee on meth

  7. leahy is a bully, a coward, and a hypocrite. i enjoy the way he asks a question, interrupts the answer, rephrases it to something she didn’t say, then pontificates (particularly galling given his ‘creative’ reading of the constitution). she’s just too stupid to shove it back down his throat.

  8. Warren,
    More accurately, Leahy asked about a prior statement she had made when she had said that she had taken an oath to the President. Leahy asked her if she had meant that she had taken an oath to uphold the Constitution. She corrected her previous statement then. He then made it very clear that, like he had taken an oath to uphold the Constitution and not the Senate, she had taken an oath to uphold the Constitution and not the President, because, despite Bush liking to refer to this as his gov’t, it is not. It is the People’s gov’t.

  9. Oh, and then they smoked crack and had a wild orgy.

    Dude, you miss a lot by not not being able to watch YouTube.

  10. edna,

    No doubt this is Leahy’s general shenanigans, but she should’ve been more aware of things to avoid this trap. Besides, she repeated the error in the middle of the discussion.

    Still, there’s nothing worse in politics, law, or journalism than a questioner who uses the questioning period to make statements that have nothing to do with the stated purpose of the questioning.

  11. You know, High# – that looked an awful lot like you in that video. Did you borrow the John Cocktosen suit?

  12. I like to watch videos like that and just pay attention to the aides. Greater humor can be found there.

  13. THE URKOBOLD WOULD BE WILLING TO ENGAGE IN CARNAL RELATIONS WITH MS. TAYLOR; HOWEVER, HE WOULD RESPECTFULLY LIKE TO TAKE THIS MOMENT TO REQUEST A GRATUITOUS REPOSTING OF THE LOBSTER GIRL. BETTER YET, PERHAPS RADLEY CAN TAKE HER TO HIS NEXT CONGRESSIONAL HEARING AS A DATE/AIDE.

  14. What is this constitution thingy that they speak of?

  15. Congressional Date – she wears a slinky dress
    Congressional Aide – she wears a Burberry suit with custom knee pads.

    (naughty. uncalled for. Naughty)

    but lobster girl, I’m sure, would do in a pinch.

    [bites self on taint]

  16. Obviously there were TWO oaths. But only one involved chicken blood, the skull of a long-dead Indian, and naked dancing around a fire. That’s the important one here.

  17. Lobster girl!
    Lobster girl!
    Lobster girl!

  18. What a relief. Now, we can expect Leahy and the Senate to get right on that whole “uphold the Constitution” thingy.

  19. it is possible to interpret that as bush has his folks swearing personal loyalty to him.

    S A T A N I C C O N S P I R A C Y

  20. “Be he foe or friend, be he foul or clean
    Brood of Pelosi or bright Friedman,
    Green or Larouche or Democrat,
    Man yet unborn upon Middle-earth,
    Neither law, nor love, nor league of swords,
    Dread nor danger, not Doom itself
    Shall defend him from Bush, and Bush’s kin,
    Whoso hideth or hoardeth, or in hand taketh,
    Finding keepeth or afar casteth
    A terrorist. This swear we all?
    Death we will deal him ere Day’s ending,
    Woe unto world’s end! Our word hear thou,
    Jebus Allfather! To the everlasting
    Darkness doom us if our deed faileth?
    On the holy mountain hear in witness
    and our vow remember,
    Cheney and Podhoretz!”

    I have on good information that this was the oath she was talking about.

  21. Oooh-ooh…lobster girl…pinch…taint…

    I get it!

  22. Wait a sec. Who ‘splained it to you?

    Didja hear about what happened to Mr. Steven Crane? He was involved in a dreaded, horrible TAINT BLEACHING accident.

    We’re meeting up at Crew for a burger and bier, so he wanted to fix his taint up real nice, n all. But he got second degree taintal bleach burns. (it’s all at URKOBOLD)

    Yup. Puttin in the drywall at the McDonald’s there.

  23. Oh, and then they smoked crack and had a wild orgy.

    I knew it!

    Oh and
    LOBSTER GIRL in ’08
    so good in so many ways.

    leahy is a bully, a coward, and a hypocrite.

    That may be so. But in this particular point of fact, he was correct. Bitching about it doesnt change that.

  25. Lobster Girl? Reason Pillow Girl is better than her, she just needs a nose job.

  26. CRIMETHINK, YOU FOOL, RECHECK YOUR PREMISES. LOBSTER GIRL IS MAMMARIFIC! THE RPG WAS PRACTICALLY BOYISH AND NOT PLEASING TO THE URKOBOLD’S SENSE OF THE BOUNCY, BOUNCY. NO, NOT AT ALL.

  27. Congressional Date – she wears a slinky dress
    Congressional Aide – she wears a Burberry suit with custom knee pads.

    Congressional Record – three interns in one night.

  28. DAR:

    wonderful!!!!!!!

  29. Thanks, VM, but it’s an oldie.

  30. Urkobold,

    Haven’t you ever heard the saying, more than a handful is just a waste?

  31. YES, FROM MEN WHO HAVE GENDER-IDENTITY ISSUES.

  32. I feel that I have missed something.

  33. LARRY EDELSTEIN MUST BE HEARD! SHOW HIM THE LOBSTER GIRL!

  34. Lobster girl? Any relation to the Medium Lobster from Fafblog? I have no idea, either.

  35. HIT & RUN! YOUR CUSTOMER HAS SPOKEN! UNLEASH THE LOBSTER GIRL!

    PREFERABLY WITH A NICE TIE-IN. YOU KNOW, SOME SORT OF IRONIC TWIST ON BUXOM WOMEN WITH LOBSTERS. POSSIBLY INVOLVING THE CONGRESS OR HFCS. PERHAPS WITH A REFERENCE TO THE RAMONES.

  36. You can’t handle the Lobster Girl!

  37. Thanks de stijl…I googled “lobster girl” images and, uh, got quite the surprise.

  38. Urkobold,

    Well, I do have pretty big hands…

  39. EXCELLENT. THE LOBSTER GIRL LIKES MEN WITH BIG CLAWS.

  40. “SOME SORT OF IRONIC TWIST ON BUXOM WOMEN WITH LOBSTERS.”

    better that than with crabs…

    [ducks]

  41. “Maybe each person who swears such an oath should have to take a test first.”

    Hell, they should have to take training like I had to take about what “Material and confidential information” means.

    Preferably with scenarios the person has to figure out.

    “Bob’s boss just read a critical op/ed about himself in a major newspaper. The boss says the op/ed was written by a guy whose wife is a CIA agent working on WMD. Should Bob tell reporters that the man’s wife is CIA?”

  42. VM:

    Q: What did one congressman say to another?

    A: “What page are you on?”
