Congress Redundant

In what has been called a disastrous disaster of disaster-sized proportions, House Republicans have become trapped in the Capitol by an infinite loop that appeared today in the Capitol out of thin air.

House Republicans had just scheduled an investigation of an investigation of an investigation of an investigation of Hillary Clinton and the FBI for not prosecuting her over her private email server, Benghazi and claims of hot sauce usage when a glowing infinite loop appeared in the chamber and trapped them inside of it.

Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, immediately demanded that an investigation into the loop and a series of investigations into the investigation of the loop…be investigated.

“I find it redundant and repetitive that Republicans will once again have to do what they’ve done before, again and again, over and over, in investigating investigations of investigations,” repeated Ryan, coughing quietly to himself, “When the results don’t end up the way we wanted.”

Many House Republicans have seemed disinterested in even trying to escape the infinitive loop and those who have been trying, keep doing so in the exact same way that has failed while expecting a different result. “This is the definition of defining what something means that’s not only not working but isn’t succeeding…or accomplishing anything for that matter,” commented frustrated Rep. Jason Chaffetz as he kept unsuccessfully trying to fit a square peg into to loop’s oval hole to pry it off of them.

Surprisingly, many of the Republicans trapped in the infinite loop seemed very comfortable. “It actually feels comfortably comfortable in a comfortable way,” observed a comfortable-looking Rep. Kevin McCarthy.

Some Republicans have taken to pouring millions in taxpayer money into the loop, watching it disappear into nothingness but claiming it is a better investment than any alternative.

“It’s cheaper to lose millions of Americans’ money in an infinite loop than to allow our tax money to be thrown away pointlessly,” Rep. Steve Scalise echoed.

Democrats led by Rep. Nancy Pelosi, none of whom were trapped in the loop, regarded the Republicans with disgust and dismay.

“I don’t think it can be repeated enough,” Pelosi noted. “Republicans in Congress have made themselves redundant.”

    Well done, AdLib!

    Since we’re finding so many film references to endless loops, I just have to add one more:

    Chaplin’s wonderful, inescapable, endless Hall of Mirrors.

    (And who loves mirrors more than GOP Congress people?)

    Congressional investigations: the ONE THING the GOP cannot outsource, because, then what would they do with all that resulting free time? Fix things? Phh!! Pshyahh!

  4. Now Darrel Issa wants to shut down the government over the FBI’s decision not to prosecute. And the wheel goes round and round…….!

        😆 Oh, you! The very bestest!

        Try as I might, thinking about looping, I couldn’t extract this wonderful example of a repub meltdown from my own fried brain cells. It’s 35C over here now but feels like 38C. Thanks for finding it!!

        Einstein was right.

          Yeow! No doubt you’ve got humidity to go along with that heat!

          I enjoyed your picks!

          Maybe the American people should just buy a giant hamster wheel for House Republicans so they can spend all day going around and around in the exact same place day after day.

          But comparing them to hamsters would be insulting…to the hamsters.

          • Kalima says:

            Yep! Wouldn’t be Tokyo if we didn’t feel like tropical orchids in a hot house.

            Hamsters are too cute. How about vampires hiding in their mouldy coffins waiting to draw blood before the sunlight bringing goodness, honesty and integrity, fries them to a crisp. After their party disintegrates into dust, the ones left standing can rename themselves “The Vampits.” There will be so few of them, they could even start a band.

    Just imagine the sheer horror of being stuck in an infinite loop with Louie Gohmert.
