Congressional Democrats have been spotted


Look! I found most of the Congressional Democrats. They are all perched in these pine trees beside my house. They are the majority as there are no other bird brains sitting up there with them. What’s it gonna take to get them off their asses, off their perches and down to the business of doing what we told them to do in November? So far all I see are a lot of bird droppings below them.

Some of Democrats who want to be president are saying that had they known then what they know now about Iraq, they would never have given bush a thumbs up for the war. Think about that a minute. We knew then what they know now, why didn’t they?

It certainly leaves one with a nagging doubt of their ability to lead. I mean, as a guy who barely made it through high school, even I knew this war was illegal as hell. WTF? I'm 'writing in' Barbara Lee for Prez in '08. She's the only one I trust.

I'm with you. They seem to think that holding hearings and still not doing anything is enough to make us forget that none of GWs actions have been legal. ; (
This surely can't continue this way here in the US. If so, we're indeed doomed, Big Time! ; (

I'm very disappointed with the Dems, so far. I wanted them to come out with their guns blazing and rescue our country from the madness. Instead they just seem like a bunch of insider buffoons who can't take a stand. I do like Henry Waxman, and really there are a few reps who are doing some hard work, but the senate needs to be slapped really hard to wake them from their stupor.

I just wish that Joe Lieberman could be at the front of the line to get slapped upside the head.

Their day will come...don't know when...don't know where...but it will come. Of course the advent of global warming may make that unnecessary. Both sides will wish they had listened...and that will have us at exactly nowhere but sitting under a bunch of poo.

You bet your backside, Pop!! This "If I knew then..." stuff is nothing but a lie and a dodge. Keep nailing their asses to the wall!

Oh - and if you see a shitbird in that tree? That'll be Lieberman!:P

I'm disgusted with the spineless bastards too. They are one again letting the Republicans frame it in terms of "patriotism" -- they are afraid of being accused of abandoning the troops in the field.

Some knob (I forget which one) actually said she didn't want to cut off funding because the soldiers would run out of ammunition and not have enough money to repair equipment, etc. Anyone that stupid shouldn't be allowed to vote for American Idol contestants, much less consider legislation that affect foreign policy.

Feingold, Kennedy and Kucinich and a few others get it, but the rest, not so much. Idiots.

The voters wanted dems to show a SPINE.

They just aren't going to do it in the Senate. Maybe in the House they will.

I sincerely hope they will provide something besides another layer of poop, followed by flying away or just getting scared off. I hope somebody is working on that impeachment thing too.

As time moves forward I am getting impatient, but i am trying to give them time I said until june.

About your comment on my blog You are right we are all Americans, but often the contributions of other races are not as well known. They are americans aswell. I just think that maybe not a whole month just more time in schools devoted to the historical contributions of the other races in American History.

March-Women's History Month
May-Jewish American Heritage Month
Asian Pacific American
Heritage Month
October-Filipino American Heritage Month
November-National Native American Month
Native Alaskan Month

From Hillary on down they knew exactly what the authorization was about and they voted for it because they care more about polls and staying in power than standing on principal.

It's ludicrous to say, "If I knew then what I know now."

POP, your last sentence and the question there in is the mystery that might have an explanation but no possible justification. Without any false modesty, if a dumb ass such as your truly can figure these things out, so should these high powered, professional men and women.

Or have their salaries put in Escrow as Peacechick suggested. There's every reason to Censure and then Impeach.

Hang in there amigas y 'migos. And keep writing, signing, sending and demanding.

Aha! Sadly Americans are cottoning on to what I've been observing (and shouting) all along. It makes no difference what the party is, the aims and affiliations are the same. Perhaps the Dems try to hide it better, are not so blatant as this current strain of Repugnants, but at the end of the day they'll let BushCo get on with it. Your country is run by Big Business. If you check out the figures you'll see that BB funds both parties. Where do you think they get the millions required to run for president from? Not from the bank, or the party faithful on the street. It's all funded by Big Business, so it matters not one jot who's "in power". Sure, the likes of Obama may be sincere in wanting to change America. He won't be allowed to.

Does anyone else see a similarity between POP's birds and chickens?

SB, "Lieberman" is the stuff on the ground.

Everyone seems to forget that the Military Commissions Act was an act of Treason by the Senate.

All Republicans except Lincoln Chaffee voted for it. There were also 7 Democrats and one Fascist Nazi Collaborator Judas Iscariot Leiberman who voted for it. We had a bunch of Traitors in the Senate and were only able to throw out a few of them.

Only the International World standing up and forcibly removing Der Fuehrer Bush and his Gestapo minions can save us now.

He will invoke the Insurrection Act if mass protest and rallies are used by those of us who want our country back and he will use private security firms {Civilian Reserve Corps - Blackwater USA and the like} against American Citizens.

He has no intention of stepping down and he will start World War III to stay in power.

He is mad, insane and demented as he considers himself the Decider of what's best for us.

We are in deep shit and it will only get worse. Remember if I'm wrong, no big deal. However if I'm right were screwed.

God Bless

What is happening is the people are changing. They don't want all this power, money thing anymore. That was the greedy eighties, and the frivalous ninties. Now with
about ten years to save our planet all the old games seem kind of outdated. Get those birds off their perches and out spreading seeds or whatever birds do.

I spotted two feathered Democracts yesterday pecking around the lawn. I think they are too frightened to go to Washington and be faced with having to take action against the war. On the other hand, they were red, and so they may have been defeated Republicans trying to find their home state. Finding the way home can be quite a challenge to Bush Republican IQs.

I'm so glad to find your blog and especially to read this: "We knew then what they know now, why didn’t they?" I've written that so many times. If I, sitting here in Florida before the Iraq invasion, with no special sources of information, could know with certainty that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction, and that the neocons were lying us into war, why didn't the Democrats know as much? They may have only bird brains, but they have intelligent staffer. On second thought, maybe the staffers were working with the neocons.

Maybe I didn't look closely enough at those possibly Democrat birds: They were probably wearing "We Support Our Troops" and American flag stickers.
