Don’t you think it is weird that Congress has to pass specific legislation not to do stupid things? Don’t they know not to do stupid things without legislation?

You know things are bad when you have to legislate not to do stupid things.  In other words, not doing stupid things just doesn’t come naturally.

Can you really legislate commonsense?  And isn’t it pathetic that Congress spends time on this type of legislation?


PER [FNC’s Trish] TURNER –


[Senator] Cornyn aide says the Senate will shortly vote on their amendment that withholds funding for future programs like Fast & Furious without strict controls on firearms “at all times.”


UPDATE: 5:07pm – the amendment just passed 99-0.  I guess they all agree that we should not be stupid and that we need legislation to remind us.
