It’s rare that I agree with a Republican and even rarer that I would go out of my way to praise one. Today, though, I am doing just that.
House Democrats and Republicans have put aside their differences this year to honor the likes of golfer Phil Mickelson, the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team, NASCAR driver Jimmy Johnson and the Penn State women’s volleyball team.
But when it came time this week to memorialize the start of the 142nd season of the Saratoga race course in New York, one freshman lawmaker decided he’d had enough.
“It’s an absolute embarrassment,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah, announcing on the House floor a vow to vote against all future sports resolutions.
Now that that’s been said, it’s important to note that Jason Caffetz is still a dickhead teabagger who sponsored a bill to honor his hometown Real Salt Lake for winning the MLS cup (which is apparently a thing.) So, in reality, he is a hypocritical cuntlick.
Still, He made a good pointÂ today. Kudos Jason Chaffetz. I hated you slightly less for a couple of minutes today.
