24. I can think of several California congressMEN who are evil and obnoxious...

...Darrell Issa and Dana Rohrabacher are just two who spring to mind. Both are GOP, both are dishonest, both are Californians, both are men, and one is in Putin's pocket.

To go after Nancy Pelosi in this fashion is so counterproductive and flat-out stupid that it makes me wonder if this crowd and its leaders are even who they say they are. She is one of the best legislative allies the DREAMers will ever have.

It reminds me of the crowd that shouted down, jostled, and disrespected Dolores Huerta, a living hero who worked alongside Cesar Chavez in dark and dangerous years and has never ever backed down from working to improve the lives of, specifically, Mexican and Mexican American workers.

What do these two people have in common? Well, they are both women, which seems increasingly like some criterion for persecution by people who claim to have some kind of progressive values. They are both small and older -- and Dolores Huerta is over 80 and tiny.

So I ask again of these protestors: Who the hell are they? Are they even who they say they are? Whose idea was this?
