By DAVID M. HERSZENHORN Published: November 7, 2008 WASHINGTON — Senator Robert C. Byrd, Democrat of West Virginia, and the senior member of the Senate, agreed on Friday to relinquish his chairmanship of the Appropriations Committee, as Democrats and President-elect Barack Obama prepare to grapple with the gravest economic crisis since the Great Depression. In other news, Senator Byrd is opening a linens store and his first special will be white sheets, two for one. Bring your own dunce cap for personal fittings. And, Saturday only, Senator Byrd will sign all orders of more than 20 sheets. Come, support your senator in his new venture and buy extra so you can give a sheet.
Can you believe this fking ahole was heading the appropriations committee. What did he appropriate white sheets and adult pampers at $1000 each. The guy can't even speak in complete sentences and we wonder what is wrong with Washington. I guess it is white ngrs like him.
