Dumbest. Congress. Ever.

In the midst of cash for clunkers, cap and trade, and universal health care, we add to the list … a resolution honoring Michael Jackson. You can read it here.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee apparently isn’t paying attention to what is actually going on, and somehow thinks it is needed to honor a child molester.

Resolved, That the House of Representatives–

(1) recognizes Michael Jackson as a global humanitarian and a noted leader in the fight against worldwide hunger and medical crises; and

(2) celebrates Michael Jackson as an accomplished contributor to the worlds of arts and entertainment, scientific advances in the treatment of HIV/AIDS, and global food security.

Whatever. I’m getting used to stupid pointless things coming out of Washington. What’s one more.

Hat tip - Michele Malkin

    Agreeded this is just stupid, heard though can’t verify that both Republicans and Dems were coming out off the floor talking about how ridiculous this resolution was. At least they found something that some of them agree on that isnt down party lines. But yeah there is way too much controversy around his personal life weather found to be true or not in the courts to start giving him amazing awards for being this ultimate person while ignoring the rest of his life. I agree he was a great musician and really changed pop music in his time but the media coverage has gotten outragous. A congressman from NY said it right recently, we have men and women dieing each day in battle to protect our freedoms why doesnt the media start giving them their due respect they earned?

    The courts found Michael “not guilty” on all charges - I think we need to honor that decision. And MJ’s contributions in HIV/AIDS research is well documented. There’s nothing wrong with giving credit where credit is due.

    They also found OJ not guilty. If you have enough money that isn’t that hard to accomplish. Lots of people do good things, that doesn’t mean Congress should waste time resolving that they did good things. Nobody needs a resolution from Congress to remember Jackson. He won’t soon be forgotten. Congress should spend more time on things that matter.

    Yes but OJ was found not guilty due to detectives getting evidence through non legal means, and through a shotty prosecutor (making him try on the glove, etc).

    Was Micheal Jackson really weird? Yes. Was his relationship with children inappropriate? Yes. He was found not guilty on all charges in a court of law by his peers, and I am sure that evidence arose that was not released to the public.

    Just because a guy is weird, and is mentally a child, does not mean he molested children.

    I do however agree that congress should focus on more important things, but thats not what they are good at :(

    I do agree that the resolution is complete B.S., and I’m glad that both Dems and Repubs spoke out against it.

    However, I must agree with the other two in saying that Michael Jackson was found not guilty.
