    •  Too busy... (3+ / 0-)

      He was probably just too busy harping on the Pelosi Airplane non-story.  

      What I wonder though, which will get more airtime:

      • Anna Nicole Smith's apparently self-induced demise
      • Pat Tillman's death

      I mean they were both celebrities so that should bring a bit more balance to the coverage.  Though I still guess Smith.

      •  Airplane story (8+ / 0-)

        Late last night, I was watching CPAN reruns of the days events in our esteemed Congress, and they were discussing the travesty of Nancy's jet.

        The funniest thing was that for a bunch of Republicans who, of course, think global warming is a hoax put on by tree-huggers and anti-oil activists, based most of their arguments on the fact that having a full-size jet to carry one person across the country on demand would do an awful lot to contribute to greenhouse gasses and global warming, with little benefit, except to Mrs. Pelosi and her pampered staff.

        What a waste of oxygen these guys are.

          that's the point. They still don't believe in global warming. They THINK what they are doing is pointing out Pelosi's hypocrisy.

          I've had this argument with wingers before. They don't believe in global warming, so it's ok for them to drive a gas guzzler. But I do believe in global warming, so why am I not walking or riding a bicycle everywhere I go?

          That's the reason for not believing in global warming. You can't be a hypocrite for driving a gas guzzler or flying a big jet unless you believe in it.

          That little punk from Hoe-dunk, FL, my home state, embarrasses me.  I'm not in his district, but when he goes on and on about Pelosi's airplane, with all the shit going down that he could be contributing solutions to, he is a godamned congrssman after all, instead he plays his little victim's advocate game.  What an embarrassing little shit with the kind of intellect that monkeys can run circles around.  Goddamnit!

      •  Thanks McJoan for this diary! (7+ / 0-)

        My SSG, National Guard son, is giving up his 2nd career due to the massive War Crimes/War Profiteering committed in Afghanistan and Iraq by our corrupt administration and their enablers.  Nothing upsets my son more than watching fluff stories of local family tragedies non-stop, on our "National News" channels...  Our ruined military deserve our "AWOL" Congress to expose the Cheney/Bushco War Profiteering and War Crimes.  Our ruined military deserve our NATIONAL MEDIA to investigate and tell the "facts" in Iraq and Afghanistan and not to relay "BUSHCO" talking points.  Our military expects the "Murtha Plan" implemented and some troops in Iraq to be sent to help the deserving Afghanis that we have also,  totally screwed with "uninvestigated" War Profiteering/War Crimes!   Mostly, our ruined military expects the Bushco Cabal to be removed from office, via resignation or impeachment.   NO PARDONS!   mjd
