Rep. McDermott Has “The Cock Brothers” on His Brain…Again

Okay, he's definitely doing this on purpose

Given Harry Reid’s various meltdowns/obsession over the Koch Brothers over the past few weeks, it’s highly unlikely that any prominent Democrat in Washington doesn’t know who these high-profile Republican donors are…and how to pronounce their name. Yet, Rep. Jim McDermott insists on referring to them as “The Cock Brothers.”

There’s no doubt in my mind that he’s doing this on purpose–just a juvenile excuse to get away with uttering the word “cock” on the House floor (and C-SPAN), with the added benefit of dissing the GOP at the same time. A small victory for a bumblebrain like Old McDermott, but I wouldn’t expect any less from him.

Now, you might think I’m being a little nit-picky here, but the truth is that this is a pattern by the Washington Democrat. It’s not the first time he’s said it, and despite being corrected by Daily Surge’s own Jason Mattera more than one year ago, I suspect it won’t be the last:

On the other hand, it’s at least a slightly more entertaining insult than Obama’s “Meanwich” attack against Republicans this week, so I’ll give him that.
