GOP oversight in action

File this under the ‘You can’t make this stuff up’ category...

Contrary to some, I think it’s great the new Republican majority read the entire text (well almost all of it) on the floor of the House. It’s probably the first time many of them had actually read any of it... certainly the first time for those who enabled President Bush’s war against civil liberties and aggression against Iraq.

Now that they’ve read the Constitution, perhaps they might be inclined to start following it.

Well, maybe not immediately.

Apparently they weren’t paying attention to the clause which stated that only legally sworn-in members could vote on legislation.

This, from the party that promises more rigorous oversight of the Obama administration.
