1. Thanks for taking the temp down a notch

Two is much better than five. The media would run with the five, two not so much.

10. Hmmm.... it might be four or five


From Twitter (has no source link to back up the claim) :

Dems Voting Yes On Holder Contempt: Jim Matheson Utah / Collin Peterson Minn / John Barrow Ga / Nick Rahall W.V. / Mike McIntyre N.C.





From Washington Post:

At least four House Democrats plan to vote with Republicans to hold Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in contempt of Congress and dozens more may join them, potentially undercutting the Obama administration’s argument that the vote is an election-year ploy by Republicans.

The four Democrats — John Barrow (Ga.), Nick Rahall (W. Va.), Collin Peterson (Minn.) and Jim Matheson (Utah) — maintain generally moderate voting records and face challenging reelection campaigns in moderate- or Republican-leaning districts.

2. Wholly-owned subsidiaries of the NRA?

I saw a report on MSNBC tonight that said that was what was motivating far too many congresspeople - the NRA is watching closely and taking note - and letting them know. And wooooooooooooo... they're AFRAID!!!!

5. Their vote is meaningless. Their vote is a pander to their districts. Yes it

is spineless, but I'm not too excited over a meaningless vote on a meaningless issue. Nothing bad will happen to Holder.

6. Barrow is going to lose this year so his vote is useless anyway.

7. Both twitter accounts are acting funny

It's as if there's a virus there. Is that happening to anybody else?

12. I just now tweeted them both and both accounts seem to be working fine.


Maybe Twitter was lagging earlier

11. There were 31 dems that signed a letter in June, but that doesn't mean all will vote yes


See the first link in the OP up above and then look at the last paragraph in the article that says:

Click here for the list of the 31 Democratic representatives who signed the June letter, noting that they are not necessarily voting yes on contempt.
