Plunderbund, Ohio blogger, nominates Congressman Jim Jordan for an Emmy award for his abominable performance during the Michael Cohen. Rep. Jordan has already made a name for himself as the Congressman who never wears a suit jacket, just a shirt and tie.

Plunderbund writes:

The Emmy for the Worst Performance in a Continuing Role goes to … Jim Jordan of Urbana, Ohio.

How many different words can you use to describe the behavior of the coatless cur of Congress, that non-urbane, uncivil and unhinged arsonist from Urbana? Yes, the uber-partisan whom former Speaker John Boehner, a fellow Ohioan, called “A terrorist. A legislative terrorist.

Awful perhaps. Disgusting maybe. Reprehensible certainly.

How about Predictable? Worse yet, since Jordan is now the Ranking Member of the House Oversight Committee, we’re going to see many more of his worst performances in a continuing role of deflection, sliming, demonization, changing the subject, and whataboutism.

Sweet Jesus.

The very person who planned to spring articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the incendiary type who has gone out of his way in hearings to trash the FBI and the Justice Department, had this to say in his opening remarks in the Michael Cohen hearing:

This first announced witness for the 116th Congress is a guy who’s going to prison in two months for lying to Congress. Mr. Chairman, your chairmanship will always be identified with this hearing.

Come to think of it, so will the toxic behavior of the committee’s ranking member. Jordan had company in his antics of sliming a witness to deflect from the testimony of Cohen that painted a picture of criminal behavior by his patron, Donald Trump. As Plunderbund pointed out in an earlier observation about the behavior of uncivil Republicans:

Good lord. That’s only the short list of lunatics. Even John Belushi would have difficulty recruiting such a crew for his Animal House frat.

But Jordan, in his attempt to distort the significance of the hearing, got something else wrong. Contrary to his assertion, this was not the first hearing of the committee in the new Congress. The committee was convened earlier to examine the soaring costs of prescription drug prices. Perhaps Jordan was off his meds in not getting that detail right, along with other facts. Indeed, when it comes to Jordan, facts are stubborn things, Founding Father John Adams eternally reminds us.

But in addition to facts, which Jordan perpetually ignores, Congress does have duties to perform in that sacred Constitution which Jordan and his Tea Party fringe never fail to invoke. (It’s so inconvenient for them to do so.)

Like the importance of having oversight hearings to examine allegations of criminal behavior by the President of the United States. Or the need to hear testimony from others who were not called while the committee was in the complicit control of the earlier Republican deflect-and-change-the-subject majority.

What is it with Jim Jordan?

Mean? Stupid? Blinded by Tea Party Ideology? In love with Dear Leader Trump?
