GOP freshmen skinny-dipping in the Sea of Galilee

5 posts / 0 new

Politico is reporting that more than a dozen Freshman Republican lawmakers got tipsy and went swimming in the holy Sea of Galilee in Israel while on delegation last August. Republican Kevin Yoder from Kansas – who allegedly stripped naked before jumping into the sea that the Bible says Jesus walked on.

Yoder apologized to his constituents on Sunday saying he is, “I feel incredibly remorseful that I have caused embarrassment to my constituents and I have caused folks who believe in me to be disappointed.” Reports suggest that the FBI investigated the incident – and that the group of lawmakers was scolded by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

After all, nothing says Republican family values like getting drunk and skinny-dipping at a holy site.

the group of lawmakers was scolded by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

unreported was the scold, "Guys, what about me? How come I wasn't invited? I can get nekked too, geezus"

Time To Start Treating Guns Like Abortions

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.

Because it just makes sense that we regulate these individual rights in the same way.

Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment - just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.
