One might think trying to create jobs or at least pretending to try to create jobs would be the thing the GOP majority would work on … or they could address  concerns about natural disasters.

But nooooooo!

Funny what counts as an “emergency” these days:

House Republicans are holding an emergency meeting of the Rules Committee on Wednesday to take up legislation that would block funding to NPR in the wake of James O’Keefe’s hidden camera prank on the news organization.

That will teach Click & Clack and those commies at The Thistle & Shamrock. Republican world, where climate change doesn’t exist but James O’Keefe is truthful.

Now on to the Senate, to consider John McCain’s emergency motion to bring back Amos ‘n’ Andy.

Priorities people.

Update and breaking: Something very bad is going on in Bahrain. Someone is taking advantage of the world’s being distracted by other events.
