I'm So Confused.......

We call it "speech." Swinging is called "action." Learn the difference and you'll have your answer.

The above quote was from a discussion of the recent UCLA Taser incident.

So apparently, the action of burning an American flag is speech, and further protected speech, but loudly refusing to comply with a police officer in a public space is not an action.

Coach, I need a copy of the playbook.........

Gabby Johnson Award Nov. 2006

Rep Jim Moran of Va. (D) wins it for two comments this month.

First on Tucker Carlson's show on MSNBC he repeatedly referred to Rep. Alcee Hastings (D) as "judge". This despite the fact that Hastings was impeached and removed (only the 17th person impeached, and the 7th judge removed since the founding of our country) for corruption. He was attempting to defend Rep. Pelosi's (D) efforts to jump Hastings ahead of Rep. Harmon (D) as chair of the House Intelligence Committee. It's bad enough that they want to put this criminal in charge of such a sensitive post, but to continue to call him "judge" is asinine.

Second, he threw his two cents into the Democratic leadership battle between Rep. Murtha (D) and Rep. Hoyer (D), apparently carrying water for Pelosi. He basically threatened the incoming freshmen Democratic representatives with retribution for their support of Hoyer.

So we see one way that Pelosi plans to keep from embarassing herself, she'll just let Moran look like a fool for her.

Senate Gibberish

Sen. Harry Reid just said on Fox that the American people want divided government, and that divided government serves the American people best. I guess that means he doesn't want the Democrats to control the presidency and Congress in 2008.
