Moe is Richard "Rape is God's Plan" Mourdock.
Curly is Allen "Communist Hunter" West.
Larry is Joe "Deadbeat Dad" Walsh.
The latter two were swept into the House of Representatives by tea party fever in 2010 and both were swept out two short years later by tea party fatigue.
Tea partier Mourdock hoped to be the junior U.S, senator from Indiana before he committed political suicide by suggesting conception through rape was ordained by the Almighty. It's quite possible Indiana women, regardless of party, were offended by his declaration
For his part, Mitt Romney may have committed political suicide in refusing to withdraw his endorsement of Mourdock.
West, who accomplished exactly nothing during his brief term, alienated and angered his Florida constituents when he called fellow Florida representative, the respected Democrat Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, "vile" and "despicable" while channeling Joe McCarthy and telling voters he knew of 80 Communists in the House Progressive Caucus.
When asked to name them, West couldn't.
Walsh, who failed to make child support payments after being elected as a candidate who advocated "personal responsibility," did little more as a congressman then tell his supporters he was "pissed off" at Obama before he was finally ousted Tuesday night by Iraq War hero Lt. Col. Tammy Duckworth.
So what's the common denominator for the three stooges?
Irrational anger, mindless extremism, and raging intolerance. That may be cathartic for a few, but it's not governing the many.
Why I oughta....
