Today one of the most pitiful displays of righteousness was displayed by the House Oversite committee. Am I talking about illegal wire taps? False claims to take us to war? The 935 lies spoken to take the US to war? Outing of undercover CIA agents?
Perhaps I am speaking of the outrage to waterboarding and how it is against the Geneva Convention to torture? Maybe how we have completely shreaded the goddamn piece of paper this country was founded on? No, no, no no, and NO.

I want to apologize in advance but I am pissed!

"You're here under oath, and yet we have lie after lie after lie after lie," Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind., told McNamee.

Wouldn't it be nice to think that the House Oversite Committee was questioning witnesses in an impeachment hearing?  

Today our lame ass Congress Critters chose to show righteous indignation about whether or not Roger Clemens took steroids.


These ostriches will duck and hide their heads to a criminal administration, refuse to enforce subpoenas, refuse to investigate the reasons we were lied in to going to war (935). We have outstanding warrants for two of the White House Staff Harriet Myers and Josh Bolton which have not been enforced. The list of crimes goes unimpeded and continues to grow.


The subpoena they chose to enforce was for a baseball player. Hey Henry Waxman, How about holding a hearing for Sibel Edmonds like you said you would do?

"We found conflicts and inconsistencies in Mr. Clemens' accounts," said Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., the committee's chairman. "During his deposition, he made statements we know are untrue."

Really? And this outrages you? How about my outrage? How about holding some oversite for something that really matters?

"Someone is lying in spectacular fashion," said Rep. Tom Davis of Virginia, the committee's ranking Republican.

Amazing how they can find the stones to tell me a baseball player is lying. All I have to say is WHO GIVES A SHIT? Are you kidding me, a baseball player? a baseball player?

Where is the goddamn oversite that we voted these slimy bastards to go to Washington to do? You know the balance of power thing? How about showing the same outrage when Alberto Gonzalez was questioned? Yes I know it was not the same committee ... WHO GIVES A SHIT?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
