Funny that it's not been done "in 20 years".. yet, someone said it was used during Clinton's Presidency for the Impeachment process..? Perhaps we should find out which it is for when the trolls get here..
In any event, since the Repugs dropped the ball back in 2004, it's nice to see that the Dems are going to "push the issue" (at least, on the surface it looks like we might) and see/prove that Shrubby and his crooks and liars fabricated a reason to kill 2000 troops and piss away $300 billion in taxpayer's money..
Here's hopin' the truth is persude and the guilty (if there are any ) are executed for TREASON.. or at least disrobed (metaphorically) and shamed from politics for a few decades while we heal the country.

The Dems grew some testes!
I'm amazed, and pleased. Doya think they'll start looking hard at the election problems again, too; and not just the Carter/Baker whitewash?
Probably too much to ask, but things are looking better than they have for a long time.
Give 'em hell, Harry Reid!

The fact that this is even news at all is just absurd. The Dems have been asleep at the wheel since Day One. And finally NOW, they're growing a set. Why? Because they perceive the thugs as politically weakened. In other words, the snake has a toothache, so the mice rush out to jump around with glee before fleeing back to their mouse holes...
Well, hopefully they'll see the wind is at their backs and this will embolden them. Hopefully by some miracle the election reform bills in Ohio will pass next week by such a huge margin it can't be subverted, and Arnold's CA power grab will go down in flames... if these occur, this will further embolden Dems.

Perhaps the dems have realized the people have no more respect for congress than they do for bush.
All of them that gave away their power to the insane man occupying our house need to make amends to us. This act today may be a beginning, maybe, just maybe they are getting some conscience. I certainly hope so. They owe us big time for selling out our Country. I hope they read these websites and realize we live in a different reality than they do and ours is perhaps more real than theres. Rambling, I know, am in a hurry. M4

One of the things I find amusing is, they say "had we known all the facts before, we'd not have let the Pres. go into Iraq".. Problem is, they acted illegally anyway. The Constitution doesn't allow them "to let the President decide", they have to DECLARE WAR.. they never did.. and, they refused to do so "because it's [war] a very serious matter with implications here at home. The American People don't want to deal with that. We'll just [illegally] turn over the descision to the President".
Now they are saying "we'd not have illegally let this schmuck take us into this conflict if we'd have known he was lying"... and all I can say is.. "you stupid fuckers! I didn't have all the access to intel that YOU did, and -I- knew they were lying based on reports in the news".. Turns out all the "logical holes" I saw in their "intel" turned out to be accurate, and there was no "evidence" at all, just a lot of bullshit.. and that bullshit has now killed 2,000 + troops and cost $300 billion in taxpayer dollars.. and NOW they are starting to get pissed about the billions to Halliburton, and the lies, and the deceit that was OBVIOUS in 2002/3.
At least they are starting something, but what they -should- be starting is impeachment proceedings on the ENTIRE CONGRESS (well, all those who signed up to let Shrubby illegally take us into an illegal conflict).
Though, for now.. I'd settle for impeaching Bush (for GOOD cause, not a hummer) and getting our troops home by Thanksgiving..

Frist and Santorum are unhappy about this. That's all we need to hear to know Democrats are serving the public good for a change.
Can anyone say, "It's time to enter the Downing Street minutes into the Congressional record !"?????
For God's sake...they put everything in there. Tributes to Sarah Bernhardt, the Campfire Girls and Lawrence Welk, recognition of Arbor Day, and laudatory comments about the Committee to Preserve Butternut Squash. How about official recognition of the nastiest criminal conspiracy ever perpetrated by our government?

Wow, I just read Reid's words on why the closed door session was called. Powerful and surprising!
The main drawback is - the investigation will be conducted by members of the Senate. * heavy sigh* Not too hopeful.
But knowing those words were said on the House floor finally, sure does feel good. There is a definite awakening going on right now, sure hope it continues. Every day that passes is critical to our soldiers in harms way and their families.

Ar least the Dems grew ONE ball anyway. The outcome is rather mundane tho.
Another bi-partisan committee to investigate something. Remember, "bi-partisan" is, by its nature, partisan.
Can't you just hear the results on Nov. 14?
"The report has been "Delay-ed". We expect the results of the report sometime around December 15.
Meanwhile, Bush scrapes off more cream in the form of vaccine stockpiling - to benefit Rummy and his stock holdings.
I have to give the Bush admistration a lot of credit on their preparedness for this 'pandemic' as it were!
Imagine - enabling the medical industry to develop, test and approve a vaccine for a flu virus that doesn't even exist yet. Ohhhh, but once it does, we'll be ready!

These are the types of things that the moderate (sane) republicans, democrats, and independents need to do to cast out the chaff ... the neoCons and neoConvicts from their midst.
It is time for strong, sustained, and persistent efforts to remove crime from the white house and from the congress.
If they keep up this effort, throw out the fake voting machines, and we have good, fair, and clean elections for a change, then an election landslide is on the way.
The moderates will retake the house and senate and the president, vice president, and staff had better watch their step very closely.

Watched Sens. Frist, Little rIcky, Lott and Kyl yesterday, holding their hissy fit press conference just after Sir Harry Reid laid down the closed session gauntlet.
The hypocrisy of the R's would be funny (well, *I* was laughing) if not for the stupid reporters negligence in asking tough questions.
For example, Frist called Reid's demand a "slap in the face", Kyl and Little rIcky blathered on about how dare the Dems interrupt debate on this most important current legislation, debt reduction. Were I a reporter I would have asked Frist how many times he had "slapped" Reid and the Dems (and the country) in the face with the way he runs the Senate, not as an independent body, but in lockstep with the administration. I would have asked "Isn't it a bit hypocritical that you (the R's) claim to be so suddenly interested in the debt when you are the ones who have increased it exponentially over the past five years?" (Not to mention the way they want to decrease spending - by stealing from the poor to give to the rich.)
(Funny thing: the rethugs agreed to the Dems demands rather quickly. R's = bullies. Rebullycans?)
Call Sen. Reid's office and thank him for standing up for the American people, for the truth! (202) 224-3542

I agree with Jim (Post #4).
In 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and last year, I wrote to various Democrats and asked them to finally develop a scroat. I asked so many times for them to stand up to the evil ones.
Again I ask, Why now?
Why not in 2000, when Bush was appointed President and no Democrat in the Senate would stand with the African-American House members from Florida.
Why not in 2001, when Bush read "My Pet Goat" to little kids while America burned? Or when we almost had Osama and then turned and ran from Tora Bora? Why did we hear nothing from them when the anti-Constitutional "USA Patriot Act" was rammed through Congress?
Why not in 2002, when Bush began his case for war in Iraq? Why didn't they holla about Nigeran forgeries after Ambassador Wilson returned from his trip? Why did they not stand up to Bush when it was time to authorize war?
Why not in 2003 when the war was underway? Why did they not take a firm stand against the leakers?
Why not in 2004 when the Republican cabal started to crack? John Kerry was handed issue after issue by numerous Republican blunders. Yet, we heard nary a peep from the Dems.
Again, I ask, Why now??? We needed them all along!

What is not being told is that the committee covered up for two years.
When the dems agreed to release "Phase I" of the report, and gave in and agreed not to oversee whether the white house misused WMD and other spy info, the committee agreed to a "Phase II", which was to spotlight the white house's performance in the matter. A bit later.
They did not keep their promise and broke the agreement.
The others on the committee where rightly indignant and finally had to get tough and demand that the inquiry go forward.
Roberts, the neoCon leader of the committe, has been using sabotage all along to derail a look into the admin lies which led up to the "catastrophic success" (link here).
Now the neoCons have done damage to the republicans again by putting the investigation right smack dab into an election year.

Why now? Because now that Bush's approvals are under
50% it's safe to oppose him. Because now the media
are at least halfway helping. Because the influence of
the bloggers has been demonstrated, and is growing.
Because the crisis is clear. Many legislators know a lot
of things they don't dare discuss in public: Paul
Wellstone was murdered, the WTC was blown up with
explosives, we're running out of oil, the voting
machines were fixed, the media have been
intimidated into silence, and if the Dems don't sweep
the 2006 elections we may see nothing but 48/52
Republican victories for a generation, turning this
nation into a Banana Republic.

LAUGHING OUT LOUD!
You liberals really entertain me. I’m not sure how I got to this blog, but it’s sure been entertaining.
1. Democrats are pissed that Rove wasn’t indicted.
2. Democrats are pissed that their were no charges brought for leaking Plame.
3. Democrats are scared that their sacred Supreme Court is now finally going to the right.
4. They know they can’t filibuster Judge Sam Alito, and their furious!.
I could go on, and on, and on!
So, with nothing to contribute to our great democracy, we get to see Dirty Harry’s hissy fit on the senate floor. Better than reality TV!
And now Jimmy Carter weighs in on WMD – I think Michael Moore proofread the manuscript when he sat next to him at the DNC last August.

If YOU aren't pissed about a National Security Asset being exposed for revenge, then you are exactly part of the problem with this country and, in fact, the world.
As for your "bullet points", Rove is still under investigation, DeLay is still going to trial, Frist is still going to trial, Cheney is still implicated and under investigation. Pissed Rove wasn't indicted? hardly. Concerned, perphaps, that the useless politicians that call themselves Republicans will derail and whitewash the treasonous acts of this Administration.. But not "pissed" that the investigation is still "ongoing".. I think YOU are pissed that it's not all swept under the carpet yet..and may well never be (now that the comittee can't continue ignoring the -other- illegal acts of the Administration).
3) -> Any self-respecting American should be afraid that religious zealots are about to control the highest court in the land.. See, that's going to complete undermind the Constitution, and soon, even YOU will be a caged animal sweating away for the rich folks.
4) Of course they can.. to think they can't is ignorant. If the Republicans decide to "undo" the way the government works for their "own ends", you better believe they will be setting themselves up to be put out of office next election. As pissed as you wing-nuts got over the last threat of fillibuster, MOST Republicans I talked to didn't think it "appropriate" for officials to "dismantle the system" for their own gain. Not to mention, most Republicans in Congress don't seem stupid enough to open that can of worms.. Clearly, YOU are.. but YOU aren't an elected official who's charged with thinking about your oath to the Constitution.
"So, with nothing to contribute to our great democracy, we get to see Dirty Harry’s hissy fit on the senate floor. Better than reality TV!"
I guess I don't understand how you are that ignorant.. Nothing to offer? He's the one SAVING it from psychos like you.. not that you can see that. See, getting to the bottom of this illegal war is all about making sure psycho leaders aren't blatantly lying to the world for their own personal gain.. That is EXACTLY what "democracy" is about, making sure the will of the "people" is being catered to, not the will of a few zealots.. Again, not that I expect you to be able to see that.

C. C. Claiborne, 1804.

I am glad you brought up Treason Gate.
In October 2001, Bush make a proclamation to the world. He said, "Either you are with us... or you are with the terrorists."
Well, the Administration worked to blow the cover on a CIA counterproliferation agent.
In that aspect, the Administration worked in the favor of bin Laden.
Therefore, we must conclude that the Administration sides firmly with the terrorists.
It is now time to take back America from the terrorist sympathizers in the White House.

4. White House under siege from a special prosecutor MANY to be indicted.
5. The Presidents poll numbers at 39.
WHAT MORE COULD A LIBERAL HOPE FOR?!?
Then, the unthinkable happened:
1. Brave Iraq’s returned to the polls to ratify their constitution.
2. The economy had an incredible 3.8% growth rate.
3. Harriett Miers withdrew, and Sam Alito was nominated.
4. And, only one indictment, Scooter for what he did or didn’t say to three journalist.
5. Harry’s meltdown on the Senate floor.

Haha, medium right! You speak of the Immoral Minority/!!! Just look at the (always heavily weighted with Republican) polls to see that you are clearly in the minority - even with all the padding and fluffing!
Poor lil' ol' Brett said, "Well, as someone great once said, 'Let them eat cake' --- should we tell him who that quote is attributed to and what greatness she stood for? (Even tho' it has been discredited historically that Marie Antoinette actually uttered those words --- oops! I gave it away.)
Yes, Brett, it's obvious you are in support of the villains throughout history --- especially with your callous quote.
Just so you know, Brett, what you are supporting (we already know) --- study up. Yes, I know you guys really don't like to study and it's not being a good neo-Republican to look for or respect truth over talking points --- but we can always hope for your edification!
Queen Consort to Louis XVI of France 1774-1793
Born in Austria, a daughter of Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor, and Maria Theresa, Marie Antoinette married the dauphin, Louis, grandson of Louis XV of France, in 1770. He ascended the throne in 1774.
She was vilified for her spending habits and opposition to reforms. The 1785-86 Affair of the Diamond Necklace, a scandal in which she was accused of having an affair with a cardinal, further discredited her and reflected on the monarchy.
When the Bastille was stormed on July 14, 1789, the queen urged the king to resist the Assembly's reforms, making her even more unpopular, and leading to the attribution to her of the remark, "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche!" --- "Let them eat cake!" Imprisoned with the king, Marie Antoinette continued to plot. Her unpopularity helped lead to the overthrow of the monarchy in 1792. Louis XVI was executed in January 1793, and the Queen on October 16 of that year.
Gee --- sounds like this admin.

Yes, Brett, Jesus would be very supportive of the cheating, lying and traitorous acts occurring daily at the highest levels of our government. Yes, he would be all in favor of what Jack Abramhoff & Tom Delay & Frist & Rove & bu$h (the list goes on & on) stand for. Yup.

Jesus stood up and fed the masses. He healed the infirm. He was a champion to the poor and disenfranchised.
He [unlike today's Democrats] stood up and fought against the political leaders of the day [the Pharisees and Saducees.]
Jesus said that what we do to the least of His children [e.g. inner city poor], we do to Him.
Now, would Jesus be a conservative or a progressive?
How, then, can ANYONE who calls themselves a Christian EVER support cutting Basic Food [feeding the masses] and Medicaid [healing the masses] and Hurricane Katrina funding [helping the poor and disenchanted] in exchange for cutting taxes for the richest?

Our Christian Historian from Delaware: "True leadership always trumps distort and demagogue."
Interesting. Now please tell us what the hell that ungrammatical collection of words means, exactly.
Was it supposed to have read, "True leadership always trumps distortions and demagoguery?"
Or, "True leadership always trumps distorters and demagogues?" Or, "True leaders, always trumps, distort and demagogue?"
Seems to me a self-proclaimed biblical scholar like you ought to be able to write clearly. At least you got Marie Antoinette's quote right, even though you didn't know (or were afraid to tell us) who said "Let
'em eat cake." At any rate, your neo-con pals will be amused to hear M.A. described as "someone great." I've more often heard Marie referred to as the spoiled youngest daughter of Queen Maria Theresa of Austria-Hungary, a girl who indulged herself with feasts and sponge baths in the Palace of Versailles while her French subjects starved.

Apparently you don't even know your own religions history, nor real history for that matter as your birthday celebration is actually a Pagan feast day "Sol Incictus". But don't let it bother you too much. Hope you enjoyed Samhain too- another one of your christian-cling-on feasts.
Your lord and savior Georgie christ is about to be thrown from the temple along with his gang of money changers. And he won't be coming back a second time either.
Poor deluded sheep.

Is Brett a girls name or a boys? I can't tell. No matter.
Brett said, "Christmas is a Christian holiday where we honor the birth of our saviour , Jesus Christ, born in One BC, crucified in 33AD"
You mean the Feast of Materialism? I remember that. I used to celebrate it too along with the Feast of Gluttony (Thanksgiving) but I gave them both up for lent. In fact I gave the whole religion up because of folks like you and Pat Robertson, and Fawell and Bakker all those other hypocrites. Your god is mammon. I have no patience for fairy tales. But you Reich-wingers sure love to live in one, don't you?

Good morning fellow BradLogers,
1. HANNAH said “Oh you silly man, Brett. Going and pushing everyone's buttons.”
I know Hannah, but it's quite entertaining.
2. SAVANTSTER SAID: ”don't bother responding to any more of his posts. he's offered nothing in support of any of his opinions”
Savantser, the weak liberal that you are, “I’m taking my football and going home”!
3. KIRA SAID: “Only those who are blind and deaf cannot see what is happening right under their noses.”
Kira, I believe in miracles. Perhaps you will be healed one day. Keep on praying.
4. RLM said: “Interesting. Now please tell us what the hell that ungrammatical collection of words means, exactly.”
RLM, my apologies. I’m assuming now that Kira was referencing you as the blind & deaf?
Ok, ok now let’s be serious. Can you explain these liberal tendencies for me:
1 This new ethos --- instinctively oppositional, aggressively secular.
2 A famous liberal political phrase "the personal is political." Letting oneself become
emotionally unhinged, ala Harry Reid. (like a protest, as at Columbia, Harvard and Berkeley).
3 "I'm frightened for my grandchildren." Admiration for childlike fears in politics.
4 The Democrats' weird obsession with "Halliburton".
5 This culture of non-restraint such as Whoopi Goldberg's double-entendre jokes about President Bush's name at Radio City Music Hall, the Massachusetts Supreme Court's sudden decision on gay marriage, and hard-to-defend support for partial-birth abortion.
President Bush is a reproach. He personifies everything liberals have fought since you
drove LBJ and Richard Nixon out of politics. And since our last election, you are trying to discover why most of us who live between the Hudson River and Hollywood Freeway don't agree with you. Expect documentaries soon about Christian evangelicals on the Discovery Channel.
I do somehow wish for a stronger opponent. You’re all just too easy to win elections against.

Roberts made a promise to go into Phase II promptly, but failed to do so. For a long, long time.
The right wing media (MSM) has failed to report it (link here).
But that has not stopped the public. Only 35% believe Roberts and the other neoCons and neoConvicts.

Anyone is easy to win elections against, if the winners control crooked voting machines. Those who suborn fraud (or deny it in the face of glaring evidence) while claiming superiority of viewpoint lack common sense and intellectual integrity...they are like the sound of one hand clapping.

Here's a great quote from Abraham Lincoln. Pass it on!
"Allow the president to invade a neighboring nation, whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such a purpose - and you allow him to make war at pleasure."

I just don't understand why those from the 'other side' come here. Do they not find comraderie with those that are on the 'same page'. Do they really think their ramblings will move a single person here. I can only conclude they work for the same people that have gotten our Nation into this mess. I wonder is they go online every morning and are assigned a blog to attack (distract) with their talking points. I guess I am just naive. I don't even argue with the 'christian folk' that show up at my door. I just ask them to pray for me. M4 (who believes in the power of prayer and thanks all of those that have prayed for me and inadvertantly, helped me on my journey to enlightenment)

#54 I have a framed Lincoln quote on the shelf above my computer. Duty as Seen by Lincoln
"If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how--the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me won't amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference." Abraham Lincoln
Lincoln was not perfect but I like this quote.
It took Jesus 30 years to become the "Christ" as in Jesus THE Christ. Christ meaning consciously aware. A title. Jesus attained Cosmic Consciousness at age 30, prior to that he was simply called Jesus. Better stop now, this post may summon a whole army of trolls...lol. May we all attain Cosmic (Christ) Consciousness. M4

Looks like Alito won't have hearings until January.
Have a nice day.

I know, I was wrong.
I was a bit bummed yesterday by that news.
