House Democrats today refused to capitulate to W's threats to start singing "Democrats and terrorists sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g," and approved the new FISA legislation without a provision for immunity from lawsuits for the telecoms!
This morning, W stood on the lawn of the WH, and said this: "voting for this bill would make our country less safe. . . . The American people understand the stakes in this struggle. They want their children to be safe from terror."
And instead of pissing themselves and hiding under their desks, the Democrats voted for their own version of the bill anyway!
In fact, Speaker Pelosi had this kind of awesome comment to make in return: "The president says Democrats in Congress should not be deceived. They are not deceived. They know the law. They know the Constitution. We understand our responsibility to protect the American people. What the president is trying to do is something that we think should be stopped," she said, adding, "I am stating a fact. The president is wrong, and he knows it."
But you know the best part? After they passed the bill that W warned would make puppies cry and children get abortions, the House...went on Spring Break!!
That makes me so happy, in an I-wouldn't-mind-watching-Animal-House-right-now kind of way.
Oh, plus, speaking of abortions, I heard this way insane story this morning on NPR about how the geniuses in the so-called "pro-life" movement are, in the wake of the movie opening, attempting to co-opt that famous line from Horton Hears a Who.
No, not "An elephant's faithful 100 per cent."
Even with the Spitzer story still dominating the headlines, Republicans know better than to try to spin themselves as the party of fidelity.
No, the line that the so-called "pro-life" geniuses want you to think of them when you hear it, is "a person's a person, no matter how small."
Yeah, because that's what they believe.
You know, of all the evil hypocritical repressive woman-hating no-fun-having small-minded dunderheaded liars there are in the world, I think that group is my least fav. Go ahead and misunderstand a children's book, you fucking simpletons. Pelosi just told W to kiss her skinny white ass, and nothing's going to bother me until Monday.
