Republicans bring back Styrofoam

by Ted Scheffler
- Posted // 2011-03-01 -

Seemingly eager to be on the wrong side of any issue, no matter how inconsequential or petty, House Republicans have fired their most recent (and weakest) salvo aimed at, you know, that well-known socialist Nancy Pelosi. They are overturning Pelosi's "Green the Capitol" program, designed to cut down on waste at the U.S. Capitol and to implement the use of biodegradable cafeteria trays and utensils in the Capitol's basement cafeteria. 

Well, the same crowd who introduced us to "freedom fries" reintroduced Stryofoam cups to coffee drinkers on Capitol Hill on Monday. According to a tweet by Pelosi, the House's anti-greening actions will result in sending 535 more tons of waste to landfills. 

Well, done, Republicans! We're so proud.

Posted // March 9,2011 at 09:48 - Sudo? Is that like Judo and. . .stupid? It's not an article, Nick, it's a blog post. For the uninitiated little Junior Republicans out there, that's just a thought, a reflection on something, not a whole story. More of a comment. Maybe if you hadn't spoken before engaging your brain, I wouldn't need to come along and embarass you. And by way, the whole quote, according to WIKI is: "'The pot calling the kettle black' is an idiom used to accuse a person of being guilty of the very thing they are pointing out. This may or may not be hypocritical or a contradiction." "Hello kettle black much" means nothing. Has you even bothered to properly add a question mark after "much," you could be forgiven for being in a hurry or some other excuse. But since you can't even manage that in an attempt to communicate, you're just an idiot. Sorry. And a Republican.
