In other news, 10 Republicans joined Senate Democrats today in blocking the highway funding bill which no one has read. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is threatening to hold session on Saturday and Sunday if members do not eat their vegetables.

Meanwhile, Senator James Inhofe is very concerned about which bathroom transgender soldiers will use.

Asked to explain his opposition, the socially conservative Oklahoma Republican told POLITICO: “I had a 10-year-old — not my son, but a friend of mine’s grandson — say, ‘All right, which bathroom would they use?’”

It's good that we have James Inhofe, a senior member of the Senate, to ask the questions that only 10-year-olds would consider to be important.

Finally, the leader of the civilian watchdog group tasked with monitoring the Obama Wal-Mart invasion says he's fed up with "conspiracy nuts." You read that right.
