In the midst of a government shutdown, the do nothing Congress finally did something. Instead of taking up the important business of the nation, oh you know, like funding the government to get us out of this shutdown or coming to a debt ceiling resolution or voting for disaster relief for a flooded Colorado; they instead voted on a new postage stamp.
Yes, soon everyone will have a little Honey Boo Boo in their lives. The House Republicans voted unanimously in favor of the Honey Boo Boo postage stamp. Not a single Democrat voted in favor but that didn’t matter. The ayes had it.
The toddler pageant queen came to fame in the reality TV series” Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”. The series follows Honey Boo Boo, her stay at home mom June, three siblings and a cast of wacky relatives.
When asked why the House Republicans were able to come to a consensus on the stamp vote when there has been so much infighting within the party of late; Congressman Paul Ryan had this to say, “It was easy. Honey Boo Boo and her family represent the American dream. Look, that mother feeds her family on $80 a week by clipping coupons and playing bingo. They are proof that with the will to succeed anyone can make it in America. It’s further proof that American families can do just fine with the budget I’ve proposed.”
What Congressman Ryan failed to mention is that June Thompson also helped her family survive by supplementing family meals with road kill, cashing in child support checks from all four of her baby Daddy’s and pulling up their rhinestone-studded bootstraps by exploiting her family on a reality series.
Apparently in Ryan’s mind, that’s what every red-blooded American family should do. Just suck down some go go juice (a concoction of Mountain Dew and Redbull) and get yourself a TV show.
