2. McDermott: "The emperor has no clothes"
"It's about time somebody said that," he added.

Wow! I turned the channel just in time, thanks for the heads up!!

3. Questioning whether to strike Kerry-bashing from the record
Reference to Kerry 30 years ago "condeming all our troops." Now deciding whether that is a personal attack or a reference to policy...

5. Something Wierd Going On...
Edited on Thu May-06-04 10:23 AM by IMRadioactive
Wasn't sure if this should be a new string...

Looks like they're reviewing a speech given earlier by Michale Burgess (R-Tex)...wonder what the flying monkey said. Anyone?

On Edit: Looks up and sees the other posts.

Attack on Kerry, eh? Yep, he'll be sent to DeLay's office for a "serious reprimand".

Oh my goodness, he won't be able to talk for the rest of the day?

Damn if that were only the truth.

6. Yes
He held up a newspaper, I believe, and complained about what's being said regarding the tortures in Iraq. He said, essentially, that it's just like 30 years ago when John Kerry came back from Vietnam and condemned all our soldiers there.

The question now is whether that is an attack on Kerry (can't attack a candidate for pres.) or whether it's a factual reference to his policy.

7. Factual Policy?
Kerry's? About what? Vietnam? Iraq? Torture?

And there they sit...on our dime. As my late father called it...mental masterbation.

12. Obviously it was not factual. Kerry did not do what he said, so it was not
a factual statement on policy.

13. I may be wrong about "factual"
It's just whether it's about policy or whether it's an attack.

I don't see how a young vet's remarks 34 years ago are a matter of "policy" anyway.

16. You can attack a candidate but not a Senator. Kerry has not been
selected as the official Democratic candidate, ergo, cannot be attacked yet.

They are now voting to hold Rep. Burgess (R-TX) out of order...

If it passes, the member can only speak when given permission for the rest of the day.

This is their way to tell law makers to shut up.
