Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Film at Eleven! Cong. Joe Barton continues to solidify his position as the single biggest wanker in the entire Texas Delegation. A rare combination of nerdy, ignorant, petty and self-important, Smokey Joe has gotten so silly and shrill that he is rapidly descending into self-parody. He is, in fact, the William Shatner of Congress, only less funny. I wish I had a link to Gore's testimony in the Senate, when Senator Barbara Boxer shot down Senator James Inhofe when he tried to take control of the hearing with the devastating line, "Elections have consequences."

UPDATE: Blognonymous has the video of Barbara Boxer smacking down James Inhofe.

Barton is a waste genetic material. I did a dueling quotes bit, and Barton's response to Gore was a sort of, "Oh yeah?!" kind of thing. So...what part 'o The Lone Star State does he represent?

BTW: Thanks for the mention. The Boxer bit was very sweet.
