The Donks Are Sick Little Children

The Donks have been acting like children lately with their impeachment frenzy over the Much-To-Do-About-NOTHING Downy Street Memo. In fact, these little brats held a mock impeachment inquiry on Thur. for C-SPAN.
In the Capitol basement yesterday, long-suffering House Democrats took a trip to the land of make-believe.

They pretended a small conference room was the Judiciary Committee hearing room, draping white linens over folding tables to make them look like witness tables and bringing in cardboard name tags and extra flags to make the whole thing look official.

Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) banged a large wooden gavel and got the other lawmakers to call him "Mr. Chairman." He liked that so much that he started calling himself "the chairman" and spouted other chairmanly phrases, such as "unanimous consent" and "without objection so ordered." The dress-up game looked realistic enough on C-SPAN, so two dozen more Democrats came downstairs to play along.

The session was a mock impeachment inquiry over the Iraq war. As luck would have it, all four of the witnesses agreed that President Bush lied to the nation and was guilty of high crimes -- and that a British memo on "fixed" intelligence that surfaced last month was the smoking gun equivalent to the Watergate tapes. Conyers was having so much fun that he ignored aides' entreaties to end the session.

The hearing was only nominally about the Downing Street Memo and its assertion that in the summer of 2002 Bush was already determined to go to war and was making the intelligence fit his case. Joseph C. Wilson IV, a former ambassador whose wife was outed as a CIA operative, barely mentioned the memo in his opening statement. Cindy Sheehan, who lost a son in Iraq, said the memo "only confirms what I already suspected."

No matter: The lawmakers and the witnesses saw this as a chance to rally against the war. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) proclaimed it "one of the biggest scandals in the history of this country." Conyers said the memos "establish a prima facie case of going to war under false pretenses." Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) concluded that "the time has come to get out" of Iraq.

The session took an awkward turn when witness Ray McGovern, a former intelligence analyst, declared that the United States went to war in Iraq for oil, Israel and military bases craved by administration "neocons" so "the United States and Israel could dominate that part of the world." He said that Israel should not be considered an ally and that Bush was doing the bidding of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

I am so disgusted with the way these children are acting, that I want to smack them upside the heads to knock some reality into their pea sized brains. The Memo that they are going on about, does NOT say anything about Bush "fixing" the War in Iraq, these idiots just don't understand the British use of the word. I have had it with them, and I will do everything I can to make sure that they lose in 2006 and 2008, because none of them ever deserve to in any political position. The Donks used to be fair and respectable, with just a difference of opinion on social and economic issues, now the party has gone bad, with hatred running through their childish minds, and they have lost ever bit of respectability that they ever had. To hold a mock inquiry and to blame Israel for the War in Iraq is despicable, and that is what the Donks have become, the Party of the Despicable!!
