On C-span today . . .

Caught the tail end of the House stuff on C-span. A Democrat was objecting to someone's suggestion about putting Obama in handcuffs? Did anyone see/hear the remark he was referencing, who said it, etc.? The speaker pro tem cut him off and gavelled them into vacation, then the channel started replaying something else.


And thanks.

So I have this dream . . .

So I have this dream, see? There’s a courtroom, with John Boehner on one side and President Obama on the other. Everyone rises as Judge Judy enters the room. She sits down, reads the complaint, then looks at Boehner over the top of her glasses and tells him to approach the bench. She leans forward, looks him right in the eye and utters those immortal words from long ago Cheech and Chong: “Bailiff, whack his pee pee!”

Is that wrong?

House rules committee -- Louise Slaughter brings it

This was on C-span this afternoon. Jim McGovern and Louise Slaughter are the only Democrats, Pete Sessions chairs (he's the one who said he can't even stand to look at Obama). Slaughter chastises Sessions for language that implies Democrats have been included in decision-making, etc. He doesn't like it, she doesn't care that he doesn't like it. Twenty minutes, worth watching.

On January 20, 2009, concurrent with Barack Obama’s inauguration, Republican leadership publicly announced their intent to crap all over the country and blame him for the stink. Having failed in that endeavor they are now determined to bring him down through impeachment. It matters little to them that he has committed no offense that rises to the impeachable standard, it matters even less that the country and all of its citizens are dreadfully harmed by their unrelenting refusal to provide the legislative leadership with which they are tasked.

At some point the Republicans’ oft claimed but rarely seen love of this country should override their abject hatred of this particular president, that would be true patriotism. Instead, our veterans will continue to go wanting, our poor will continue to have less to eat while corporations will continue to revel in gluttony, our roads and bridges will continue to crumble, our schools will continue to deteriorate. Time and effort and money that could not be found for such issues will suddenly appear in abundance for impeachment. Because, you know, Kenya.
