I just called and said "There's a Republican revolt going on int the House Chamber and I wasn't seeing much coverage of it." I got a run around on it. Was told several times "There are no cameras on now. Cameras are not allowed." I objected, politely, that the story could still be covered.

He seemed mildly irritated that I would question that and asked if I wanted to talk to (name garbled) and I said yes. Got a phone tree that led to leaving a recorded message. I did...

"There's a Republican revolt going on in the House Chamber. I understand that the cameras are turned off. You can still cover the story. Thank you."

I find it very ironic that C-SPAN is covering the topic it is while there’s a revolt going on in the House.

I just got off the phone with a member of Mike Rogers’s (R-AL) staff. She did not know that any members were on the floor. She just had the TV on and didn’t know that Pelosi had cut the juice.

Anyway, Rogers is on his way back home to Alabama. But yesterday he introduced a bill to drill in ANWR. At this moment I do not know the gist of that bill; I’ll track it down.

I also informed her that I’ll be calling the White House requesting the House be called back into session; that we need to do something about oil NOW and it wasn’t time to go on vacation.

She was very polite and sweet and did her job well.

Dennis the Menace may step in a hornets nest with all the indictments coming down on OH 10th Dems.

Maybe they discovered where those ‘unexplained’ 10,000+ votes came from!

It says live on my channel Senator Maria Cantwell is talking about energy

C-Span 1 is congress. C-Span 2 is the senate. I have Direct TV and get both. On C-Span 1 it's the house channel and a hearing on guns.

Reformatted as I was about to post the same :)

Update 4 - The scene on the floor is kind of crazy. Normally, members are not allowed to speak directly to the visitor galleries, or visitors are prohibited from cheering. But in this case, the members are walking up and down on the floor during their speeches, standing on cheers, the visitors are cheering loudly. Some members even brought in visitors, who are now sitting on the House floor in the seats normally filled by lawmakers, cheering and clapping. Very funny.

Democrats faced a choice here - should they leave the cameras on and let Republicans rip Pelosi & Co. on C-Span, or should they leave the cameras off and let the Republicans have their “tantrum,” as one Democratic aide characterized it, with the cameras off. So the cameras are off, but Republicans, and the crowd, are clearly enjoying the scene.

Uodate 5 - Republicans are literally hugging each other on the House floor. Rep. Don Manzullo (R-Ill.), not normally known as an distinguished orator, just gave a rousing speech, accusing Democrats of stifling dissent. He referenced President John Quincy Adams, who returned as a House member after being defeated in his bid for re-election as president. Waving his arms and yelling, Manzullo brought the crowd (including a lot of staff shipped in by GOP leaders to fill up the place), and he left the floor to hugs from his colleagues. You don’t see that up here every day.

Update 6 - Rep Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) just pretended to be a Democrat. He stood on the other side of the chaber and listed all of the GOP bills that the Dems killed.

He then said “I am a Democrat and here is my energy plan” and he held up a picture of an old VW Bug with a sail attached to it. He paraded around he house floor with the sign while the crowd cheered.

I just called (202)225-0197 from down here in Chile. Asked him to keep up the pressure. He asked what I was doing down here...told him I was trying to find my deck under a load of new snow and then go skiing...He laughed!

Nice one. It's be nice if we had some people from Japan or maybe even China call in and raise hell about it too. :)

Still ... Chile's way the hell down there. You near Santiago or further south?

I just called my Congressman Doc Hastings and asked if he was still in DC. She said he was but thought he was getting ready to leave but was in a meeting now. I asked if he was at the House with the rest on the floor over the oil debate. She wasn't sure. I told her it would be nice if he got over there and gave support to those that were there. She asked if I wanted to leave a message. I said yes. "Drill Here, Drill Now." She took my name address etc.

I hope my rep shows some balls and gets over there.
