The Congressman Steve Womack Chronicles: It’s just so damned hard to concentrate on more than one subject at a time

Clearly, we are not paying The Scowling One nearly enough, at least if the evidence of his latest missive to constituents is anything to go by.

Because if we did, maybe the stalwart Steve Womack would be able to talk about more than one subject at a time at his public meetings with voters. As his latest email missive to voters goes:

“There are many challenges facing our nation; challenges that must be addressed sooner rather than later. House Republicans are working every day to advance real solutions to these challenges. I am hosting town halls across the Third District, so I can hear what's most important to you and bring that message back with me to Washington. Armed with your feedback and ideas, we will continue to fight for the American people by passing thoughtful, innovative, and commonsense solutions to that lead to greater freedom and opportunity for you. I hope you will take a moment to take this quick survey, so I can be sure to talk about the issues you feel are most pressing.

“Creating jobs and building a healthy economy

“Reducing spending and the size of government

“Establishing a fairer, simpler tax code

“Protecting Americans at home and abroad

“Reforming our broken immigration system

“Addressing the problems within our health care system

“Strengthening America’s schools

“Fighting climate change

“Other”

Be very, very careful what you choose, because TSO’s website folks are so protective of him that you can only pick one of the above areas of concern. Presumably, TSO will pick the topic (or topics) which have the most votes, and simply disregard the rest.

Because I’m pretty sure that the man who claims to “lead from the front” will be MIA when it comes to fighting climate change.

I tried to mark off several on the list, but all my efforts were for naught.

Oh, TSO, just for once, try and surprise us, won’t you, and talk about something which makes you squirm? Just for fun?
