Those damn Texas Dems are at it again!

This time on a national level. Have I mentioned that I love my Representative? I do. His name is Lloyd Doggett. He has fought the good fight for years and years. Read all about it why not! Link below.

Two officers soon arrived and, realizing they wanted no part of arresting House members for simply milling in a library, called their watch commander.

You little fruitcake. You little fruitcake. I said you are a fruitcake."
When Rep. Scott McInnis, R-Colo., had told Stark to "shut up" during the committee meeting, the California Democrat denounced him as "a little wimp. Come on, come over here and make me, I dare you. . . . You little fruitcake. You little fruitcake. I said you are a fruitcake."

Har.
Rep. Kenny Hulshof, R-Mo., a committee Republican, said Stark's words were uttered in, "dare I say, a very threatening tone."

You dare! You dare!

>Democrats said they needed more time to read it. Thomas disagreed.

Don't you tell me how fast I can read!

In response, Democrats objected to a normally perfunctory motion to dispense with the reading of the dense legislation. A clerk obligingly began reading it line by line, pausing only when Thomas interrupted to announce: "In the House, the minority can delay. They cannot deny."

That's not what you said when Clinton was in the White House, Mr. Big Republican-Pants!

I just read this this evening. And I am APPALLED.

And pissed off. I intend to call Stark, and say, good for you!

And I want to call your Rep., Lauri, and say thank you.

I can not believe this was not a top-of-the-page story in my newspaper. This is APPALLING.

I am calling my newspaper to complain about their placement of the story. This example of the ineptitude and game-playing should be important news. I know it's nothing NEW, but it's reaching new heights.
