Look out, Chris Christie -- there's a new "conservative porn" star in town and like the Thunder in Trenton, Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Penn., is pulling out all the stops and dropping loads of common sense on Congress.
During a mark-up session of the House Workforce and Education Committee Wednesday, Kelly dressed down his Democratic colleagues for neglecting one of their central duties as members of Congress: planning a budget.
“It is irresponsible to sit here and continue to talk about a budget that you don’t like verses a budget you didn’t even have the courage to put before the public last fall," he said. "Why? Because you didn’t have the stomach to do what was right because you had an election sitting in front of you.”
Look, Ma -- no teleprompter!

Predictably, Massachusetts Rep. John Tierney, a Democrat, fired back by saying... it's Bush's fault. Republicans supported Bush's irresponsible spending so therefore Kelly can't complain. Tierney -- a 7-term member of Congress -- ignored the fact that Kelly only assumed office in January and wasn't even around during the Bush years.
Facts are such silly things.
