Ugliest Man in America Leaving Congress, Blames ‘Extremism of Tea Party Republicans’

It’s pretty clear Democrats have little hope of retaking Congress this year, but on the upside their ugliness may decline a bit as Henry ‘Nostrilitus’ Waxman has announced his retirement. As always, he goes out covering himself in mud.

Representative Henry A. Waxman of California, a diminutive Democratic giant whose 40 years in the House produced some of the most important legislation of the era, will announce on Thursday that he is retiring at the end of the year.

Mr. Waxman, 74, joins the growing list of House members who are calling it quits, many in disappointment over the partisanship and ineffectiveness of a Congress that may end up as the least productive in history.

“It’s been frustrating because of the extremism of Tea Party Republicans,” Mr. Waxman said in an interview on Wednesday. “Nothing seems to be happening.”

As opposed to his own extremism, which was constantly on display whenever a Republican was in the White House. What a dick. Here’s a parting gift, Hank:

    At least he can fall back on a career of the lead in The Hunchback of Notre Dame on the dinner theater circuit since he’s got that hideous visage thing down.

    F-ck you, Waxman.

    If he’s leaving, it means he sees no hope for the Dems taking the house this year or 2016. He might even be thinking his grip on his own California district is shaky, and if THAT’S true, Obama will be leaving the Democratic Party a smoking ruin.

    It’s time for Henry to join some lobbying firm and clean up. It’s what ex members of Congress do.
