Finding ways to pass the dull autumn days in Congress

When I saw this, I at first thought it was a spoof. Our representatives evidently can't find anything to do with their time (with only trivial events to deal with like Californian cities burning and oil-rich countries imploding) and must fill their days passing resolutions in support of a hate-radio host.

Mr. KINGSTON submitted the following resolution

Commending Rush Hudson Limbaugh III for his ongoing public support of American troops serving both here and abroad. Recognizing Mr. Limbaugh for his relentless efforts to build and maintain troop morale through worldwide radio broadcasts and personal visits to conflict regions.

Whereas the need to show support for American troops serving and fighting both here and abroad during a time of global conflict has never been greater, with the need to communicate an uplifting message of encouragement to American soldiers eternally important, in addition to the morale-boosting value of personal visits to region by highly-regarded individuals;

Whereas daily radio broadcasts reaching tens of millions of civilians and soldiers both in America and abroad by way of the Armed Forces Radio Network are conducted five days a week by Rush Hudson Limbaugh III;

Whereas Mr. Limbaugh has consistently used his broadcast time to praise American troops and support them during their ongoing efforts to secure peace in a troubled world;

. . . and yada yada yada

Unbelievable. It makes resolutions recognizing state flowers & birds seem like high level politics in comparison.

And this whole time, I pictured these people in tense committee sessions, with sweat pouring down their foreheads as they dealt with the most pressing issues.
