I Couldn't Make This Shit Up

Senators Tom Coburn (R-Eprobate) and Jim DeMint (R-Evolting) have put a hold on a bill that would grant "approval of a decade-long effort to build a women's history museum in the nation's capital." The two senators are concerned about, among other things, bias.

Got that? Two conservative male senators are holding up approval of a women's history museum because they're not sure it will conform to their dudely ideas of what a women's museum should be.

Without a trace of irony.
