This Crop Of Dems Is Low-Class and Trashy
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) believes it is his right as a Muslim to be sworn into Congress with the Quran. But apparently, the freshman lawmaker doesn’t believe it’s Rep. Tom Tancredo’s (R-Colo.) right to smoke a cigar in his congressional office.
Ellison’s office called the Capitol Hill Police on Tancredo last Wednesday night as Tancredo was in his office smoking a cigar. The lawmakers have neighboring offices on the first floor of the Longworth House Office Building.
Tancredo was still stunned a day later. “It’s very bizarre,” said Tancredo, who has never met Ellison. “Seemed to me not a good way to say hello.”
And let’s face it. Calling the cops on a colleague takes the cake for the nerviest behavior so far among members of this year’s freshman class of Congress.
Someone tell Mr. Junior Rep. Ellison that the customary way to meet your neighbors in Congress is to knock on their door and introduce yourself... Then we have Maddog Murtha threaten to leave the military completely unfunded if Mama Pelosi failed to get the airpwane she wanted--he barked 'I just call up the Pentagon and tell them what they're supposed to do!'--and Webb wants to take a swing at President Bush because he asked him how his son was doing in Iraq???
This particular change of leaders has GOT to be one of the MOST pathetic efforts I've ever seen. Mannerless, low-class, shameful in their quest for power--and so ham-handed--the Dems are calling blacks 'clean'/articulate and those same 'clean'/articulate blacks are saying our dead troops overseas have had their lives wasted! I tell ya Hellary, and her travelling road show, seems entirely sedate in comparison. I expect the Senate will soon resemble Taiwanese/Hindustani parliament and they'll be wrenching the microphones out of their sockets with which to club us!
Stay tuned for that dandy little 'peace' rally they have scheduled in D.C. in a few weeks. If Cindy Sheehan and Code Pink doesn't come riding into town dragging pup tents and porta-potties behind them--and if they can manage to stay out of jail for the night--they have promised a rock-throw only the former vets of other wars can quell. The last time they were in our nation's cap, they had to satisfy themselves with merely defacing the same building Todd Beamer gave his life to protect. Protect from the likes of them--our own Enemies of the State!
Oh, the aptly named FitzFong Follies are set to wrap it up today, as the defense rested Wed. I know the Dems want Saddam's gallows rebuilt in the public square; too bad, they'll have to wait through closing arguments. Maybe, one day, their witness's memories will improve enough for one of them to actually recall why they were there... Whew! I'm so glad this Non-Party Of Non-Corruption isn't wasting our tax dollars!
Gad! It's not even President's Day; they haven't been running the show for more than a couple weeks! However, you'll never grow old with this crew; they've made the last few weeks seem years long--and I've heard Obama's name more than I've heard my own--and time is standin' still! This is gonna be a long election season! (I'm beginning to understand why Dick Cheney packs a gun--and isn't too careful about his aim! ;-)
