Democrats in the House Energy and Commerce Committee have hired a speed reader, in case Republicans request for the more than 900 page bill to be read aloud. Invoking their procedural right to have the bill read aloud could advance the Republican’s plan to stall a vote on the bill. Committee Chairman Henry Waxman wants the bill voted out of the committee before Congress breaks for its Memorial Day recess next week.Members of Congress on both side of the aisle should get REAL and stop wasting the public’s time and coin on MORONIC activities.
And, this moron is Speaker of the House and marshalling President Obama’s Economic Stimulus bill through the Congress?
Here is the video:Nancy Pelosi: Dumber than soap. Nancy claims that we lose 500 million American jobs each month we don’t pass her $1 trillion pork barell spending boondoggle
The Republicans in the Senate will try to amend this PORKULUS economic stimulus bill. Probably better to scrap the entire bill and start over.
No hope for this crap sandwich.

Day By Day by Chris MuirLet L.F. Eason retire and good riddance. Did he make a personal statement?
Gov. Mike Easley had ordered all U.S. and state flags lowered after Helms died July 4. But L.F. Eason III told his staff to ignore the directive at the state Standards Laboratory in Raleigh.
Eason said in e-mails he didn’t think it was appropriate to lower the flags because of Helms’ “doctrine of negativity, hate, and prejudice.” Eason said Helms “voted against or blocked every civil right issue” that came before Congress.
Eason requested the option to retire Monday after his superiors ordered the flags be lowered. Eason said he could not in good conscience honor Helms.
The 51-year-old Eason had worked with the Department of Agriculture for 29 years.
Who cares about another state Department of Agriculture employee taking early retirement? Flap thinks he was looking for an excuse to retire or was just a MORON.++++++++++In blogging matters, Flap is starting late today because he played and won a satellite poker tournament this morning and just busted out of the main tournament later.
There are many photos from yesterday’s World Series of Poker that I will post later tonight or tomorrow. I will be heading over to the Amazon Room at the Rio very shortly for today’s action.

A very weak attempt at anti-Semitic and racial biogtry posing as humor. Nobody could possibly believe that Rudy Giuliani is ANY WAY associated with this.

This dentist was REALLY “work(ing) HIS fingers to the bone.”
North Dakota Congressman, Earl Pomeroy, says he won’t vote to impeach President Bush but calls him ” A CLOWN” anyway.
North Dakotaâ€™s U.S. Rep. Earl Pomeroy calls President Bush a â€œclownâ€ and says he â€œcanâ€™t standâ€ him in a new video posted on the Internet.
The Democratic congressman was approached by a group called Grassroots America last week as he was walking the streets of Washington, D.C.
The RNC just identified another “vulnerable” Democrat incumbent Congressional seat.
Remember this MORON?
Remember that Flap said Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice needs to bring Fernandez in for a WOODSHED TALK.
So, what does the United States State Depatment do?
Fox News: Public Praise
Remember Alberto Fernandez? The State Department press officer was forced to apologize last month after telling Al Jazeera that the U.S. had shown “arrogance” and “stupidity” in Iraq.
Well after a month of silence, the State Department is finally speaking out on Fernandez â€” not to condemn him, but to praise his “integrity, courage, [and] sensitivity.”
Fernandez was selected from three department nominees for the Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Public Diplomacy by Tufts University… for his work with pan-Arab media … to increase the number of appearances by U.S. officials.
He receives a certificate signed by Secretary Condoleezza Rice â€” and $10,000 in cash.
Does anyone wonder why the GOP lost control of Congress and the President’s polling numbers are in the basement?
This is, after all, the same U.S. State Department that gave performance awards to bureaucrats responsible for the lax visa policies that paved the way for the 9/11 terrorists.
On October 31, the actual Halloween day, Amy Gutmann, the UPenn President, hosted a party at her house. Here is a photo of us. I asked her if I can take another photo where Iâ€™m pointing my gun at her, but she did not allow it.
University of Pennsylvania: Statement by President Amy Gutmann
Each year, the president hosts a Halloween party for Penn students. More than 700 students attend. They all crowd around to have their picture taken with me in costume. This year, one student who had a toy gun in hand had his picture taken with me before it was obvious to me that he was dressed as a suicide bomber. He posted the photo on a website and it was picked up on several other websites.
The costume is clearly offensive and I was offended by it. As soon as I realized what his costume was, I refused to take any more pictures with him, as he requested. The student had the right to wear the costume just as I, and others, have a right to criticize his wearing of it.
A MORONIC answer from a MORON…….
The U Penn Board of Trustees should reprimand President Amy.
But, Flap bets they won’t………PC BS.
Good for her for not taking the John Kerry route and blaming “assorted right-wing nutjobs.”
But Myers makes an important point.

Reuters: Kerry makes direct apology to troops
Democratic Sen. John Kerry apologized directly to U.S. troops on Wednesday for comments about Iraq that had prompted a firestorm of criticism from Republicans and President George W. Bush.
“I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform and I personally apologize to any service member, family member or American who was offended,” Kerry said in a statement.
Kerry said earlier in the day he was sorry for a “botched joke” about Bush that was interpreted as a slam on the U.S. military. Republicans demanded a more direct apology and seized on Kerry’s comments to students as a sign of Democratic weakness on national security.
About damn time…….
As a combat veteran, I want to make it clear to anyone in uniform and to their loved ones: my poorly stated joke at a rally was not about, and never intended to refer to any troop.
I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member, or American who was offended.
It is clear the Republican Party would rather talk about anything but their failed security policy. I donâ€™t want my verbal slip to be a diversion from the real issues. I will continue to fight for a change of course to provide real security for our country, and a winning strategy for our troops.
The White House statement:
Sen Kerryâ€™s apology to the troops for his insulting comments came late, but it was the right thing to do. Our military is the best and the brightest, the most courageous and professional or an military in the world and the President is honored to be their Commander-in-Chief
Was this really an apology?
Not really……more of – “well the DNC made me do it and it is right before an election – so……”
