Democrats’ Energy Ideas Date to 19th Century
Bless his heart, Rep. Jerry Nadler is trying to understand the woes of Americans facing the high cost of gasoline.Venturing outside the comfortable confines of his Manhattan and Brooklyn district, the liberal Democrat was spotted Monday in the Upstate New York city of Utica talking about transportation and energy policy.Nadler’s solution:”We should take a hard look at reviving the canals,” Nadler said.

Hi, Nancy! Do you *really* want to play chicken over energy policy?
Remember that the more annoyingly obstructionist and anti-regulatory the GOP is in the House, the more we the GOP base love them for it (something that the Senate GOP’s already noted). Which makes this short video about your disinclination to settle drilling before the August break (courtesy of the NRCC, and said group seems to have gotten the hint on this topic, at least), kind | Read More »
House Speaker Pelosi Claims Al Gore Invented Internet Technology?
I’m sure by now we are all aware of the Netroots Nation conference that happened in Austin, Texas last weekend. Well, did you know that without Al Gore it wouldn’t have happened? That’s right, since Al Gore invented the Internet… I know, I know, that is the old Al Gore joke where he famously claimed that he invented the World Wide Web. Everyone knows that | Read More »
Democrats don’t believe in ethics reform
How did this not get more attention? With reporting deadlines looming, congressional officers have issued revised guidelines that ease some of the lobbying disclosure requirements enacted last year. The revised guidance, issued by the Clerk of the House and Secretary of the Senate, relaxed the rules for disclosure of lobbyist contributions to parties at this summer’s Democratic and Republican national conventions, among other changes.So, just | Read More »
Meet The New Boss/Same As The Old Boss
Another one from the Most Ethical Congress in History.
Oil drops for third day because of economics 101.
As much as we all have wanted to string speculators up by their thumbs (and they do have it coming), the drop in oil over the past three days has been because of downward pressure being placed on the market by fundamentals.
Harry and Nancy mouth off like fools
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has accomplished nothing positive in her tenure on top, is perhaps stewing over her ineptitude, looking for something… anything.They asked her why her Congress has failed to pass a single spending bill.Pelosi shot back in unusually personal terms.”You know, God bless him, bless his heart, president of the United States, a total failure, losing all credibility with the American people | Read More »
Speaking Of Total Failures, Nancy…
Apparently, our dear incompetent Nancy Pelosi believes President Bush…personally…is a complete failure:”You know, God bless him, bless his heart, president of the United States, a total failure, losing all credibility with the American people on the economy, on the war, on energy, you name the subject,” Pelosi replied. She then tsk-tsked Bush for “challenging Congress when we are trying to sweep up after his mess | Read More »
Message To The Judicial and Executive Branches
On July 17th I read the two articles quoted and referenced below, and that infuriated me. I can imagine how frustrated some people in the DOJ must be as well. I have been living with a time table that has been withheld from me. I have been waiting, not knowing the ‘when’.But first, allow me to simply quote another article. This from the Democratic Underground. | Read More »

Leadership: It starts with taking responsibility
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was recently interviewed by CNN. She gave her views on the War in Iraq, President Bush, and the lowest ever approval ratings for Congress. What stood out more than anything else to me, was that she was completely incapable of taking responsibility for anything. Let’s start with her view of President Bush.God bless him, bless his heart, president of | Read More »

Our Apologies Mrs. Clinton

Nancy Pelosi, Oil, & The End Of The American Dream
According to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the need to open more of the US to oil exploration is a hoax. Last week in a press conference she said, “This call for drilling in areas that are protected is a hoax, it’s an absolute hoax on the part of the Republicans and this administration.” One would have hoped she was talking about man-made global warming – | Read More »
Nancy Pelosi: In Violation Of The Rules Of The House Of Representatives
Really. It’s true. And of course, it should be pointed out that this is less an indictment of Speaker Pelosi and more an indictment of the silly rules concerning the use of technology.
