I wish I could have 262 days off...

Sometimes it takes a statement so ridicuously stupid to make you thank God that you actually have some brains. Check out this dumbass quote:

"'Keeping us up here eats away at families," said Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), who typically flies home on Thursdays and returns to Washington on Tuesdays. "Marriages suffer. The Democrats could care less about families -- that's what this says.'"

No, it says you're a shiftless, lazy Congressman (and I use that term loosely)that doesn't want to work for his constiuents. Five days a week??!?!?! Imagine that! You actually have to work FIVE days a week! Oh, the horror...

That's why the Republicans wanted to keep control of Congress. It wasn't to pass a budget or any meaningful legislation but to suck on the federal teat and stroke a nice paycheck. God forbid you actually have to do something for that money like the rest of us.

So do us a favor Congressman Kingston, resign your office immediately. Since you are so worried about your family and marriage, you should go and leave the governing to someone more capable of juggling their schedules.
