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.
