Jim Zeigler Embarrasses Congressional GOP

Yes, that Jim Zeigler.

Here's the situation (from the AP):

WASHINGTON - A clerk's mistake could mean a budget bill President Bush signed isn't technically law, but congressional Republicans said again Wednesday they have no plans to try to fix the problem.

Even though Alabama attorney Jim Zeigler has filed a lawsuit charging the $39 billion deficit-cutting legislation Bush signed is unconstitutional because the House and Senate failed to pass identical versions, House GOP leaders insist there's no problem.

"I believe that it's law," said House Majority Whip Roy Blunt.

Not so, says Zeigler, a Republican activist.

"An eighth-grader in civics class knows that a bill cannot become law unless the identical bill passes the House and Senate and is signed by the president," Zeigler said.
Zeigler apparently represents elderly groups that he feels might be adversely affected by the budget cuts and is trying to void the law in federal court by pressing the issue of the clerk's error. And instead of re-voting on the budget, GOP leaders are content to roll the dice that the courts won't enforce the letter of the law.

The US House only passed the budget by a scant 216-214 vote, so they don't want the stress of a re-vote or for their vulnerable members to have to cast yet another controversial vote.

So now conservative GOP activist Jim Zeigler is now teamed with Congressional Democrats in trying to force the House to address the budget again.

(I considered giving a brief background on Mr. Zeigler but decided it might be best left up to some of our more knowledgeable and/or colorful commenters.)

This reminds me of the meeting of the local property owners assc. when the President, a polished real estate attorney, said the aforementioned document had minor oversight in it. One of the members, a ponytailed trial lawyer, got up saying, "you are a lawyer and I am a lawyer, and I make a good living pointing out oversights, the devil is in the detail".

I know Jim Zeigler. He is a fine man. Differ with him if you wish, call him a gadfly (which he probably is), but Jim is a decent guy.

You should check out Zeigler's latest gig as the chairman of Conservative Christians of Alabama. Check out their Moore/Murdock lavish web site. I guess being chairman of the League of Christian Voters wasn't enough of a pastorate for Saintly Jim.

Where to begin on Gentleman Jim. Well, he is the only SGA President at the University of Alabama to be impeached and removed from office(something to do with student funds, I hear) and after one lackluster term as a PSC commissioner he practiced law in Montgomery before being run out of town. He landed in Mobile and has run, unsuccessfully, for several offices. He is still the only white person ever to lose a statewide race to a black candidate, Oscar Adams. In one of his attempts to get back in the public trough he ran afoul of the ethics commission(I understand) with a pyramid type fundraising scheme. Other than all that Jim is just your normal, everyday garden variety cretin.

As much as viagra has rescued the people from the cruel grip of erectile dysfunction it has also proved to be a curse to many because of wrong conception and wrong interpretation of its functioning. People buy viagra with the notion of having an extra erotic night without actually having the need to. Nowadays Viagra is also easily accessible and anyone can buy viagra online. In addition viagra online is more often than not cheap viagra i.e. a discounted version. People can easily get Viagra from the online pharmacies using wrong information. But in this way they will harm no one but their own selves, so it is always handy to have a clear conception of the drug one is taking.
