Congressman Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma goes beyond the welfare queen, and invents the meme of the welfare athlete. I wonder if he is aware that many working families receive foodstamps, including about 5,000 military families?

Corpus Christi’s own Blake Farenthold is eager to impeach Obama, for all the best birther reasons.

Rick Santorum says that talking about the “middle class” is a Marxist plot.
