You have to send Nancy’s email to:

http://www.speaker.gov/contact/

Unless you are unfortunate enough to be in her district!!

Only then will the queen bee accept your email.

Just caught part of an announcement on C-Span about an “animated discussion” going on right now...

Anyone else catch it?

The Dem may still control the House and Senate after the election, but I think they damaged themselves enough that they will not have the numbers to break a filibuster.

Lately, the Senate has not been adjourning, only meeting every couple of days. That prevents President Bush from making “recess appointments” of controversial judicial nominees the Senate wouldn’t otherwise confirm. The President can bypass the Senate when it adjourns for longer time periods, such as the August recess.

ROFLMAO!!!!

Can you say:

Republicans should man the chamber the entire recess if neccessary. Bring in a few cots and make sure they always have a presence in the chamber... press will pick it up.. makes good copy. Legislator sleeping on a cot, with a few days worth of scrubble eating pork n beans from a can.

I say R’s work this hard.

“Just emailed Boehner’s office. Please keep us informed. My wife suggested a good protest would be for every American to light candles every night (front porch or windows) to protest Pelosi’s obstruction of the vote and the darkening of the House chamber. Does anyone have any other suggestions?”

Sure, how about driving our cars with the headlights on? There’s a somewhat hidden meaning in there too... :-)

WHAT THE HELL IS FOX NEWS DOING???????????????

Fox is disgusting.

Earlier I was watching McCain speaking live from Orlando, and when he started to mention School Choice, Fox cut him off and went to one of their over reported stories.

I switched to MSNBC and continued to watch McCain speak on the issues. (Of course Obama doesn't know he does this, all he does is accuse Barak of not being white)

Then MSNBC cut away, and I had to go to CNN to watch the rest of it.

Nice piano music on C-SPAN 2 now...C-SPAN has Students for Concealed Carry on Campus on now.

That was pretty much it from Rush. He also made it sound like because HE mentioned it 5 minutes ago, they turned the lights back on. Now he’s back to his anniversary show.

So, the House may have to take a mulligan on the previous vote to adjourn and agree to meet every couple days — for only a few minutes usually — as the Senate will do for the month of August.

Quorum Call every time???

Sure, how about driving our cars with the headlights on?

That's easy enough, and a hell of a lot less dangerous than candles.

Yes, I’d love to have the names of the 25 representatives with enough grit to refuse to leave. One of them needs to get Limbaugh on the cell phone and get some attention on this event.
