An excellent rant by Sandy Vagina...

That's right... the Republicans are corrupt.

Rap poetry?

Always marvelously made-up;
Star well suited for struggle
But her pursuit of perfection is bound to inspire.

Into BDSM perhaps?

If she is responsible for getting me laid, count me out.

The following Rap poem seems to capture some of her special spirit.

Funny, she forgot to mention Rep Jefferson (D.LA) who had the NATIONAL FREAKING GUARD drive a deuce and a half truck to his house to take 100Gs from his freezer or ALCEE HASTINGS(D.) one of only three Federal Judges to EVER be REMOVED from the bench
or John Murtha (D.), an unindicted CO-CONSPIRATOR from the ABSCAM scandel, who, while he says he supports the troops, threatened the military JUST LAST WEEK with appropriations cuts if the military doesnt give NANCY PELOSI (D. CA)a jet that can fly non-stop cross country for her, her staff and assorted family members.

Yeah, only Reps are corrupt. Sure they are, SURE they are.

Waaah, people are pointing out my party has no convictions and is morally bankrupt! Waaaaaah!

"After twelve years of Republican control too often driven by patronage considerations"

Too funny, strange the prior 40 years of Democratic control driven by patronage considerations didn't seem to bother them.

This has to be one of the most incoherent pieces of "news" I've read today. It is also somewhat misleading. Hmmm, lets fix this.

Who the hell is Rep. Major Owens? He's not a Member of the House. He is obviously not a good writer. Anyone care to tell me if he is a CA State Rep, please? Oh, and tell hom not to quit his day job. The life of a rapper is not for him. On second though, quit your day job, because you are a crappy writer, but don't fall back on your rapping skillz.

Lets have a gander to what committees Congresswoman Millander-McDonald sits on, because I've never heard of her.

Committee on Small Business? They have no power. One of the smallest committee budgets in the House.

Transportation? Decent. You can do a lot of fun things on that one. No complaints here.

And finally, she is the first African-American woman to lead the Committee on House Administration. Never heard of it. Lets find out what they do.(p)

Gosh, that sounds very very important. I sure hope the Smithsonian can handle all the bipartisanship she will throw at them.

/Most of the stuff that that committee is said to have oversight on is taken care of by a non-partisan office.
//Yeah figureheads!
2007-02-11 11:37:29 PM  
Oh yeah, almost forgot
If you offended this chairman in some small way, the repair of your telephone might be blocked or a requisition for paperclips would be delayed.

How to fix the first problem: Call the tech guy. Every office has a tech liason who handles communications between the private company that fixes the phones.

How to fix the second problem: Send the intern to office supply. That is what they are there for.

/Rep. Major Owens is a dumbass

Chris Barr: Major Owens was in fact a US House member (D, New York's Fightin' 11th out of Brooklyn), but retired at the end of the 109th. Yvette Clark (another D, it's a heavily blue district) took his seat.

So after 12 years of the Republicans running Congress and accomplishing very little, it's now actually considered bad to have an ambitious agenda?

/party of no ideas, indeed

Any chance she can cure herpes?

I guess he did quit his day job. Poor career choice, buddy. That would explain why he didn't pop up on the 110th homepage. Still should put Fmr in front so people don't get confused. He's pulling a Katherine Harris deal, and thats just crazy.

What scares me more is the fact that he is trying to insinuate that the Republicans had more control over his office than his own staff did. I mean, sure Ney was corrupt, but all the Committee on House Administration does is look for glaring mistakes on the office accounts. They don't have power over maintenence. And if his intern can't figure out where the office supply is, the kid is an idiot.

So after 12 years of the Republicans running Congress and accomplishing very little, it's now actually considered bad to have an ambitious agenda?

She has no real power. It is a figurehead position. One that looks nice on a resume, but doesn't mean anything. Most of the day to day stuff that this committee has oversight for is taken care of by the GAO.

The Democrats already pushed to punish Jefferson as far as they can without expelling him from the house. Within a month of the raid that discovered the evidence you mention, they did successfully strip him of his committee appointments, greatly reducing his political clout.

Judging from previous precedent, he'll be expelled if he's convicted of a felony; if he's not convicted, he'll probably be allowed to stay. Right now he's still under investigation -- he hasn't even been indicted yet, much less tried. If he's found guilty then the house will virtually certainly expel him.

As to Murtha, the fact the government lacked sufficient evidence to indict him makes it virtually certain he won't be punished. That's doubly true as the incident in question happened over 25 years ago and no congress in that time has done anything about it.

I could ignore Middle Eastern strife if the Democrats help me get laid.

If they stop the chronic GOP overspending and fix this war, I'll be happy.
But you taxbreak chumps will pay for Dubya's spending, can't run up bills without them coming due eventually.
Try not to blame the wrong people for it this time.
Impeaching Dubya would be nice, but turning him into a powerless shell the next few years then turning him into an object of ridicule like Nixon would be OK too.

She can do all that, but can she slice, dice, AND make julian fries?
