So I received in my email today the “Annual Report” from Senator Jim Webb. This is a very long document of what he considers his accomplishments for 2009. Do you want to see a portion of his email? Please grab your trash can or be near a toilet in case the need to vomit suddenly erupts within your inner being… Ready? Ok, read on… I’ve added some commentary in brackets, I couldn’t help myself. 🙂
Entering my fourth year in the U.S. Senate [only two more left to go!], I’m pleased to report on a range of legislative accomplishments and initiatives to benefit Virginians from all walks of life [except you Tea Party people] and to create new jobs in our communities [except for all of you who are unemployed and that I ignore].
The tangible benefits of our work in recent years can be seen in the hundreds of thousands of veterans who are now obtaining a first-class college education as a result of my Post-9/11 GI Bill, established last year [he is always very good with the Vets, I agree.]. The Wartime Contracting Commission, established last year, has made substantial progress in cracking down on waste, fraud, and abuse in our contracting practices in Iraq and Afghanistan and ensuring proper stewardship of taxpayer dollars.
Following the same approach that we used in garnering bipartisan support for the GI Bill, we launched major initiatives to reform our criminal justice system, improve adult education programs, and advance nuclear and clean energy technology.
We have consistently supported Virginia’s military men and women, and their families, made significant progress towards the federal recognition of Virginia’s Indian tribes, and secured funding to preserve the Commonwealth’s historic battlefields, wildlife refuges, and wilderness areas [but we don’t support the overwhelming majority in Virginia who don’t want health control].
I hope that you will take a moment to review this Annual Report [which says NOTHING about health care even though it was all we did in Congress for the last 7 months], which highlights what we have been able to accomplish over the past year [rob your freedom of choice and trash the Constitution] and where we are headed in the years to come [complete and utter socialism]. Below are highlights from my Annual Report, and you can read the entire report by clicking here.
As always, if you need assistance with a federal matter or have thoughts about legislative issues that you would like us to pursue, please do not hesitate to contact one of my local offices or my office in Washington [and we will be sure to ignore you or send you one of our lovely form letters]. I also encourage you to visit my new website at www.webb.senate.gov to receive regular updates, learn more about my positions or share your concerns [but it won’t do you any good, it just makes me look popular by getting all those hits on my website].
As your senior Senator, I am committed to providing Virginians the kind of leadership that will not back away from the many difficult problems facing our country [you can now vomit]. My staff and I look forward to working with [ignoring] you in the years ahead.

Tackling America’s Criminal Justice System

Can you believe that? How in the world do you not mention health care in your Annual Report, when that has been the only topic of Congress for almost all of 2009? I guess he believes in that motto, “If you ignore it, it will go away,” which has been his MO all year. I suppose he doesn’t really understand the persistence of the Tea Party Movement.
