Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has got 'em!
I must admit, this really is too amusing for words: Because Barack "On Vacation" Obama took such a long time between stumping his American Jobs Act (which we panned here), and actually introducing the bill to Congress in order for them to "pass" it, House Republicans decided to, as the Intellectual Property lawyers like to call it, "appropriate" the name of Obama's bill.
It's a fitting way to highlight exactly how powerless this Chief Executive truly is. And what better way to highlight Mr. Gohmert's legislative coup de grâce than a photo that shows him demonstrating his manly powers?

PS: I wanted to highlight this photo with the same headline, but refrained out of taste. Glad to have the opportunity to share more behind-the-blog stuff with you today!
