Republican Congresscrap Pistol Pete Sessions – who got that name because he’s always shooting off his mouth – has done it again. His middle name is “Sue Obama.”

Rep. Pete Sessions, the House Rules Committee chairman who led Wednesday’s hearing on Republicans’ plans to sue President Obama, presented the legal credentials that have put him in this position of responsibility.“I’m an Eagle Scout,” the Texas Republican told his colleagues. “I studied the merit badges that we took about governance, about cities, states, the national government.”

Screw Obama and the constitutional law expertise he rode in on. Pete Sessions has a damn merit badge.

Even Jonathan Turley admitted that there was very little chance that the Republicans could win this lawsuit but …

He counseled Republicans not to worry about the steep odds, saying, “I don’t believe that the challenges in front of this lawsuit is an excuse to do nothing.”

In other words, you can beat the rap but you can’t beat the ride. It’s an illigitimate lawsuit but by golly they can make the President of the United States of America sweat. And the speeches they can give on the House floor – oh the speeches! – right before the mid term elections.

And Pete was not alone on the Texas Ship of Fools.

To overcome the contradictions, Republicans on the panel employed various strategies. Rep. Michael Burgess (Tex.) played the bumpkin. “I’m just a simple country doctor, not a constitutional lawyer, but I do understand due dates,” he reasoned.

And in the alternative let me add, “I’m just a learned constitutional lawyer, but I can take out your appendix.”

Goofy has come to town and he ain’t leaving until he’s rectified the fact that the presidency belongs to white boys.
