"No Sense of Decency"

Today is Friday, 30 July 2010.

Remember when ... bloated adulterer Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House, and caused The Federal Government Shutdown of 1995, because he was in a snit at his seating assignment on Air Force One?

House Republicans are at it again.

In an effort to harass and embarrass Democrats, they demanded to offer unlimited, unrelated amendments to the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, a bill to aid first-responders to the September 11 events. Last night, their ambition denied, 155 House Republicans (all but 12 in the House) voted to stall the bill until at least September, and succeeded.

The House Republican tantrum puts their electoral greeds above the needs of nearly 60,000 people who put their lives on the line on 9/11.

First in this legislative session, they took a crap on the unemployed, then craped on small business, and now they've gone for the gold: craping on the heroines and heroes of 9/11: the meaning of patriotism for 86% of House Republicans.

For each of these "public-spirited", elected employees, it’s a country of one.

“Whose side are you on?”

I now have a girly crush on Rep. Anthony Weiner after his very impassioned (and very loud) speech in the House Chamber yesterday.

Just wish Obama would dismount his high horse, and treat the Repugnicans to some "Give 'em hell, Harry!"
