Mary Jo Kilroy a Birther?

Wow. Didn’t see this one coming. As Tim notes, a house resolution passed overwhelmingly today that recognized Hawaii as President Obama’s birthplace. A total jab to the birther insanity that has gripped the GOP.

Boehner voted for it. Schmidt voted for it. Hell, the guy who sponsored the damned “birther bill” voted FOR it.

My congressman and PB Joseph’s congresswoman? Tiberi and Kilroy both “not voted”. OK. Tiberi I get. But Mary Jo? MARY JO?!@?

Congresswoman Kilroy, please contact us immediately regarding this. I’m hoping there’s a real good explanation.

Everything was filed on time and the status has since been re-instated.

Clear political machinations designed to hurt a political campaign via whatever means necessary.

Clearly backfired.

Modern at BSB and Tim at BI are all over it, of course.

Will Tim continue to be a darling of the ‘sphere after this one? It would seem to strain that relationship.

Youngstown ? Congressman Tim Ryan today endorsed Lt. Governor Lee Fisher for U.S. Senate, citing his leadership in standing up for the hardworking families of Ohio. Congressman Ryan has represented Ohio?s 17th Congressional district, including most of the Mahoning Valley, since 2003.

Maybe Tim is officially part of the club now and no longer the young upstart challenger he once was. What’s the saying? Tim Ryan has.

Update: Of course if you haven’t figured out the reason for the […]
