Sign #4 That the World Is Coming To An End: SC6 Gives Nancy Pelosi a Compliment !

Being Nice Doesn't Mean We Won't Pick on Her Anyway .....

For as long as we've blogged, we have always said that we will give credit for doing the right thing - even if you're a Democrat. Today, we're going to say thanks to someone we thought we would NEVER have anything complimentary about - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi....

Like the rest of America, some members of Congress were way to preoccupied with Michael Jackson's passing - namely Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee(D-TX) (no relation). We'll explain something briefly here.. At the end of each session of Congress, any member can get 5 minutes to express his/her feelings on any subject that they want. Even dumb stuff, like "I'd like to recognize Lester Sandusky of Blowville, who won the Blueberry Pie eating contest last month with a record 13 pies..... Great Job, Lardass !!" Well, Jackson-Lee didn't think that her 5 minute were enough to recognize Michael Jackson, so she decided to try and push through a resolution , honoring Jackson. Ahem......

It was a bad idea from the start. Only one other member of the Congressional Black Caucus co-sponsored her resolution. Translation: Sister, you are on your own !!! But, Pelosi was the one who put the final kibosh by stating that having a resolution would invite a debate that would end up bringing up all the negatives about Jackson - Michael, that is.. You see, resolutions are supposed to be formalities, and there was no way this would breeze through. Even Pelosi knows that , in Congress, you argue about Health Care, the Economy, The War on Terror, and other important issues. Don't waste time arguing about the King of Pop. Jackson-Lee still hasn't figured that one out yet....

And, as for Lardass ????

Oddly enough, this coincides with last weeks news that Panetta briefed members of Congress and several members who attended came out and said Panetta admitted the CIA mislead congress.

I hope Nancy isn't holding her breath waiting on any apologies from those that crucified her for "challenging the integrity of the men and women who are fighting the war on terroism" back in May when she said the CIA lied to her about water torture.

Torture is listening to Michael Jackson music.

No Moye torture was living on the same planet at the same time Michael Jackson lived. Only pedophiles and his doctors are crying for him now...

The lack of concern voiced by the GOP's sunday talkshow folks on this was stunning. By LAW, the CIA has to inform the "Gang of Eight" of this stuff. I loved watching McCain this morning when asked if there needed to be an investigation, play the, "well...I don't know about that...I need to know the facts, first." I thought that's what investigations were for, John, uncovering facts.

Mr. Bipartisan himself refusing to say the obvious: if the WH purposely directed the CIA to not inform Congress pursuant to the law, then hell yes, there needs to be an investigation. Is there any doubt in your mind that if this concerned the Obama WH, McCain would not have had such an aversion to the term "investigation?"

McCain's appearance this morning on MTP was absolutely retarded. He does not think Palin "quit." What the eff would you call it there, navyboy?

Watching Fox News this morning, they seemed to be layign it at Dick Cheney's feet, although the GOP thinks it's just Panetta politicking it. However, if it was to help her out, it does seem way after the fact. Seemed like last month's news to be rehashing.

The problem is, even if it was just the rogue dark prince of the OEB, shouldn't they be pissed about it? Not making a big deal about it is politics, they would rather it go away then admit a Republican VP did this shit.

Not for nothing...but as a atty, I take lying under oath seriously. More serious than most. Having said that, I have to admit that willfully violating the law to hide a clandestine program ranks higher on my "ruh-roh" scale than a man lying under oath about adultery.
