GOP Rep. Renee Ellmers On Obamacare's Success In Kentucky: La La La I Can't Hear You Failure Disaster Dur Dur La

News

Drop the confetti and grab the lube, because Renee Ellmers has earned the rare Wonkette Daily Double Derp Dip (Non-Palin Division)! First, we reported that Ellmers's poor son got his unsecured murder toy stolen right out of the family's unlocked garage, probably by Eric Holder. (In that post, we reminded you about the time she said “I need my paycheck. That’s the bottom line,” right after she decided that other government employees wouldn't get theirs unless the Stormin' Mormon and That Obama let her mangle Obamacare.)

But what's this? Do you smell that? Smells like fresh Legislative Shitmuffins! It seems we have no choice but to nominate Ms. Ellmers now, because here's ThinkProgress curating her recent appearance on CNN. SPOILER ALERT: She was not intellectually honest!

ThinkProgress's headline was "Confronted With Example Of Obamacare Success, GOP Rep Freaks Out," which is not accurate; CNN host Carol Costello is the one freaking out, because Ellmers is a machine designed to infuriate smart people. At one point, referring to Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear's account of Kentucky's success with their Kynect insurance marketplace, the host no-bullshit yells:

"But you're discounting everything the Kentucky governor is saying! You're discounting it all instead of sitting down with him and saying, 'Governor, let's talk. Let's figure this out together.'"

And what was the governor saying? Just some awesome stuff like this:

"Let me just give a piece of unsolicited advice to the critics, and honestly, to the news media: Take a deep breath. You know, this system is going to work… You know the last time we did a major transformational change in health care in America was back in 1965 I think it was, we passed Medicare. Well, history shows us it took two or three years to work through all the bumps in the road and all of the kinks to get it up and running and making sure that everybody joined up. So, this is going to work and everybody just needs to chill out a little bit.”

Republicans and Democrats actually agree that the news media needs to "chill out a little bit," as Ellmers rebukes Costello: "You're getting awfully angry about this situation [of me being thick and pretending I'm answering your questions when all I am really doing is trying to set the record for most times calling Obamacare a 'failure' and a 'disaster' in a single TV appearance.]"

Ellmers also says "Let's look at another state Obamacare was modeled after" and then talks about... Tennessee's TennCare, which is nothing like Obamacare. What about Massachusetts, you ask? What's that? Some kinda state or something? Never heard of it.

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
