the funniest thing about this latest round of GOP stalling and time wasting on the Hill is that the clown who sponsored the bill wound up voting against it. Republicans vote against Motherâ€™s Day. On Wednesday, the House took up the seemingly uncontroversial H. Res. 1113, â€śCelebrating the role of mothers in the United States and supporting the goals and ideals of Motherâ€™s Day.â€ť The resolution initially passed 412 to 0, until Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R-KS) rose in protest: Mr. Speaker, I ask for a recorded vote because Iâ€™m sure every member wants their mother to know that they have supported the goals of Motherâ€™s Day. Tiahrtâ€™s mother, however, may be disappointed to know that her son did not support Motherâ€™s Day. He and 177 other Republicans decided to cast their vote against mothers. Watch it: When asked why the GOP switched their votes, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) said, â€śOh, we just wanted to make sure that everyone was on record in support of Motherâ€™s Day.â€ť (Even though he also was actually on record against Motherâ€™s Day.) The Washington Postâ€™s Dana Milbank reports that this move was a procedural tactic to â€śbring the House to a standstill.â€ť Update: Yeas and Nays points out that amongst federal lawmakers, Charlton Heston is actually more popular than mothers. Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE), the original sponsor of the bill, also ended up voting against it.
