government official picks his ears and eats it on live tv c span

Ewwww! This isn't about left and right, it's about right and wrong!

When Representative Joe Garcia of Florida got bored in a meeting of the House Judiciary Committee, he did the unthinkable - he picked the wax out of his ear and ate it!

First we couldn't believe our eyes! Then we weren't sure if we were watching Congress or a kindergarten class!

We haven't been able to reach C-SPAN2's other viewers, but we assume both of them were also totally grossed out!

Watch the entire video of the legislative oversight…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Filed under: TV NewsSilly!PolitikPollsSaturday Night Live

Oh man!

Is it just us, or was Jason Sudeikis reaching 'Sean Connery on Celebrity Jeapordy' levels of HIGHlarity last night?!

The actor appeared as Vice President Joe Biden in Saturday Night Live's opening sketch last night, which skewered the Vice Presidential debate along with Taram Killam as Congressman Paul Ryan, and frankly, it was easily one of the best, most spot-on parodies we've seen from the late night series in quite some time!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

Oh, and just wait!

Watch Kirk Cameron Weigh In On Todd Akin And 'Legitimate Rape'

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinutePolitik

If you haven't been living under a rock…or a place with no access to the internet, newspapers or television, then you already know all about Rep. Todd Akin's views on "legitimate rape" and abortion.

In case you're just tuning in, the Congressman is currently running for Missouri's Senate seat and went on television to declare that — from what he understands "from doctors" — it's really rare for a woman to get pregnant after being raped.

Ya see, as long as it's "legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

While it sounds like he watched the movie Teeth a few too many times or maybe thinks the female uterus is armed with booby traps that eliminate any trespassing sperm, it turns out he simply "misspoke."

But now, it's someone else's turn to put their two cents in on the issue. Check out the video (above) to watch Kirk Cameron shared with CNN his DEFENSE of the controversial politician.

It's nice to know that Kirk Cameron doesn't believe there is "any kind of okay rape," but a little disappointing that he couldn't take the subject anywhere past his theologically-inspired views on abortion. At least he didn't bash the gays this time!

Missouri Rep. Todd Akin Backpedals After Claiming 'Legitimate Rape' Doesn't Result In Pregnancy

Filed under: Icky Icky PooOops!Media MinutePolitik

Ugh.

Missouri Rep. Todd Akin, who is not a medical doctor nor a woman, went on the Jaco Report on Sunday to give his very inneresting and ridiculous thoughts on rape and pregnancy.

Whilst discussing the controversial topic of abortion on the St. Louis broadcast, Akin claimed:

"First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare. If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

First of all, what constitutes as a "legitimate rape?" Secondly, according to statistics from Journal of American Obstetrics and Gynecology, over 30,000 pregnancies result from rape every year and is something that occurs with "significant frequency."

Apparently, Mr. Akin hasn't read any

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. Being Treated For Bipolar Disorder

A few weeks ago, we thought it was weird that sources were just calling it a "mood" disorder, as that could've been anything — so we're glad that we know what it is specifically that Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has.

We're just not glad that he has to go through it!

Taking a leave from congress to get his bipolar disorder under control, it's been two months since he left for help — and the Mayo Clinic has confirmed that he's there for treatment.

We wonder what was the final moment before he knew he needed help. Whatever it was, we're glad it has set this in motion!

Check out the report on it (above), and we hope all is well, Jesse!

Jesse Jackson Jr mood disorder

The political realm has been worried and confused as to where Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has been hiding after abruptly leaving Capital Hill last month.

Rumors suggested that the Democratic congressman had entered rehab for drug or alcohol problems, but his office says those speculations couldn't be further from the truth.
