Watching Congress debate the GOP/CYA Troop funding bill
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 12:18 PM by blogslut
Oh, they're all so passionate defending the bill because they just love those troops. How dare the those evil Democrats and that Kenyan preznit even think that this bill is the lowest, most cynical political bullshit ever?

Gahh!

1. Am I the only one here watching this?
What was that "spontaneous" standing ovation for Cantor about? The wingnuts jumped up and cheered when he said (paraphrase) "Our party is committed to keeping the government running..." They freaking planned that I swear.

4. Ha! Steny Hoyer brings up the Tea Party
The GOP side boos him - just for saying the words.

Both sides are totally booing each other.

Oh, poo. This was from earlier. Dang. Well, I'm glad I saw the replay.

Lively.

5. Arrgh. I'm so confused!
C-SPAN keeps freezing up on me.

I think the Democrats are attempting to get the House to pass a vote to send the GOP/CYA troop support bill back to committee. The repubs continue to vote the proposals down but the Dems keep re-introducing the measure?

Is that right?

Am I talking to myself?

6. "If you vote against this bill, you vote against the troops."
Oh. My. God.
