And now for the juvenile laugh portion of our day

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 16-48Republican Rep. Pete Roskam voted against hate crimes legislation and ENDA. He also opposes both full marriage equality and civil unions, and supports an amendment banning the same. But according to this report from Wonkette, he did just demonstrate a knowledge of having to grease up a "chute" before you tap it:

Rep. Pete Roskam (R-Ill) just twice referred to the “greased chute of government” in regards to the TARP Epic Fail program during the House Financial Services hearing. Roskam: “What we’re dealing with today is the greased chute of government.”

Minutes later he said there was “sort of a pat you on the head,
tap you on the backside” given to critics of mark-to-market accounting rules.
