34. True! I don't EVER EVER EVER want to hear the likes of Nancy Pelosi or anybody else saying
"I could have had kkkarl rove arrested but I didn't."
BUT YOU DIDN'T!?!?!?!?!?!?! WHAT THE HELL???????
Opportunities like that don't just fall in your lap every other day when the clock strikes 2pm.
I still remember one moment when the GOP members in the House got up and walked out, en masse, in protest of something or other that the Dem leadership did to get their panties in a bunch and their noses out of joint.
I yearned for Nancy or some Dem to seize the gavel, wait til the last of the enemy combatants left the room (and that IS how they should be viewed, and dealt with), and then stepped to the podium and directed the Sergeant-at-Arms to lock the doors. And after that was done, direct the rest of the House to come to order and "let's get some work done, folks." Lock the fuckers out. They of course ran straight to the camera crews that I'm sure had been tipped off by a well-coordinated GOP media stunt crew. The would have realized soon enough that they'd been locked out - the folks inside had shrewdly called their bluff. And once inside, the remaining Dems should have declared they had a quorum and proceeded to vote on, and pass, the legislation the bad guys had been obstructing.
STERLING opportunity to kick the enemy in the teeth and shame them in public and run over them and their egos and their stupid second-grade stunts with tractors. But of course they let 'em slide. BLEW the moment completely. 'Cause we had to take the "high road," you see. And in politics, as our side never seems to learn or understand, the high road leads you straight over a cliff.
