    "How much longer will the House allow itself to be mocked? It is up to this House to uphold the rule of law and hold accountable those who illegally targeted American citizens for simply having different ideas than the President."
    That ship already sailed, asshole.  On your watch.  To wit:

    Karl Rove, Harriet Miers, Josh Bolton, and others I can't recall at the moment ignored subpoenas in 2007 and 2008 to appear before the House Judiciary committee.   Charges of contempt were handed down and referred to the Bush Justice Department which, predictably, declined to act on them.  Observers urged the House to use its powers of Inherent Contempt to bring them in and compel testimony, but that never happened.

    So, yeah.  The Administration spit in your eye, and you let them.  No backsies (you moron).
