And the Theater of the Suicidally Absurd continues as Reid taps Murray, Baucus and Kerry. yes, Kerry, the man who told the media to stop covering Tea Party & who declared Tea Party was responsible for the downgrade. Yep, more evidence this gang is committed to making sure US lands in the ash heap of history. After all , we deserve it don;t you see? We’re rejecting their so-called leadership, and we, of course, should be punished.

These choices make one thing perfectly clear: Harry Reid, inspired by the success they had with the debt ceiling ‘negotiations’ with Boehner, fuller expects to have more disastrous liberal plans emerge from this charade. Boehner folded before, and he will likely fold again.

In the first of what will be a closely watched selection process for a powerful new deficit panel, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced he will appoint Democratic Sens. Patty Murray (Wash.), Max Baucus (Mont.) and John Kerry (Mass.) as his three choices for a super committee charged with finding more than $1 trillion in spending cuts by the end of this year.

Murray will serve as co-chair of the 12-member panel. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will select her co-chair and two other panelists, as required by the next debt limit agreement signed into law by President Barack Obama last week. Minority Leaders Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell will each select three additional members.

When it comes to what Boehner, McConnell and Pelosi might do (besides just throw gasoline on us and light a match), here’s The Hill’s roundup of other potential Super Theater of the Absurd Committee members.

    There’s a youtube video of Baucus pontificating on the Senate floor, drunk as a skunk. Another winner.

    So Reid is stacking the deck with “Big Time spend, spend, spend” people to be on the committee. Then Pelosi gets her pick, which I’m sure will just re-enforce Reid’s pick. But Boehner will be a “gentleman” and pick reasonable people. I saw this coming as soon as the deal was announced. But wait…just in case somebody who Boehner picks wants to get a back bone and stand of for common sense…there’s this trigger… If we get stalemated in the committee the trigger will force action. The Democrats will have cuts to their constituents and so will the Republicans. But the Democrats WILL allow that as it just gives them MORE leverage in the media. The Republicans WILL NOT allow $500,000,000,000 to be cut from the Military as that will severely damage the military and our intelligence community. So the trigger is only a trigger against the Republican side.

    You gotta love Patty Murray, who once praised Bin Laden for building day care centers. She’s so dumb she makes Barbara Boxer look like a genius.

      That’s right! I forgot that… 🙂

      There is just too much evidence out there to blow the liberals out of the water, but alas…The media that the left half watch will not allow that to come out.

    Nothing good will come out of this. Another waste of time and resources to puff-up the gov. and make us feel we need them to solve problems when they are the problem.

    John F. Kerry must have been picked for his Gra-Vi-Tas. This guy could pontificate about his visits to the Men’s Room. Has there ever been an individual who sounded more high-minded, all the while uttering absolute nonsense, than John F. Kerry? “I Actually Did Vote for the $87 Billion, Before I voted Against It.”
