Senselessbrenner Goes All-DC-All-The-Time

We've mentioned a few times that Jim Senselessbrenner is way past his sell-by date (which was around 2000.)  He wrote the legislation which authorized NSA's privacy intrusions--and now claims that it was "misinterpreted."  He has never taken a meaningful vote against ObozoCare, and has always had his nose rammed safely up the behind of 'Suntan John' Boehner on critical issues.

His utter inutility to actual Conservatives is demonstrated once again as he defends breaking "the law of the land" as written in ObozoCare:

Senator Johnson’s lawsuit is an unfortunate political stunt. I am committed to repealing Obamacare, but the employer contribution he’s attacking is nothing more than a standard benefit that most private and all federal employees receive – including the President.

Here's a suggestion, Jimbo:  pay for your aides' insurance out of your own Kotex-lined pockets.  Not ours.

Once upon a time deranged wingnuts were dismissed as lunatics. Now we refer to them as Republicans.

Seems as though the crux of Johnson's argument is that he wants Congress and their minions to comply with the law without special exemptions. Sounds fair enough. Sensenbrenner wants an exemption to avoid competition with the private sector for competent staff. Johnson seeks fairness while Sensenbrenner seeks privilege.

Johnson's lawsuit is probably destined for failure, but at least we got a good view of Sensenbrenner's soft, pasty underside. Seems he has no problem sacrificing principle for privilege. There was no upside for Sensenbrenner here, but he just couldn't keep his mouth shut.
