Markwayne Mullin continues to embarrass Oklahoma…

With all apologies to Senator Jim Inhofe, the most imbecilic member of Oklahoma's congressional delegation has to be Congressman Markwayne Mullin.

Whether he's going back on his word to serve only three terms in officelying to constituents about paying his own salary, or simply referring to the deadly and tragic forced removal of Native American tribes to Oklahoma as a cheery old "Volunteer Walk," the silver-spooned plumber turned wannabe MMA fighter always finds a way to embarrass Oklahoma on the national level.

This continued yesterday when, while complaining about the Affordable Care Act, Mullin violated House decorum and told a colleague to "shut up."

Check this out:

In all honesty, I'm not that bothered by Mullin telling someone to shut up. Is it disrespectful? Yeah. But who cares? I'm a fan of the British system of political debate. It's fun and refreshing to hear politicians yell and sneer and lob insults like they're Utah Jazz fans watching Russell Westbrook miss a layup.

For me, the part that's embarrassing is that Markwayne Mullin apparently doesn't know how to pronounce the word “employer.” We all pronounce certain words weirdly, and I know he probably sucked on lead plumbing pipes as a kid, but what's up with that? Employ-ORRR? Emplyrr? I think he tried to pronounce it three different ways and all three were wrong.

Surprisingly enough, Mullin's inability to pronounce a basic word wasn't even the dumbest thing on display in the chambers yesterday. After everyone settled down from the "shut up" incident, some snowflake congresswoman whined and complained that Mullin uttered the word, "sucks."

Really? You can't use the word "sucks" when accurately describing the Affordable Care Act? First of all, reactions like that are what enable asshats like Trump and Markwayne Mullin to be successful and actually win. Second, I don't think the congresswoman realized that "sucks" is one of about 200 words in Mullin’s limited vocabulary.
