Contemptible Congress

Every time I see the words "Fast and Furious Investigation" my brain first processes it as Whitewater. It's the same kind of time wasting, money squandering, politically driven witch hunt that serves only to provide fauxcontroversy fodder for the media. You have to be an idiot or deluded Fox viewer not to see it.

That being said, Nancy Pelosi pisses me off a little with this remark:
"I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day," Pelosi said to laughter, during a sit-down with reporters. "I'm not kidding. There's a prison here in the Capitol ... If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him."
To which one can only reply, "Why the hell didn't you do it?

Talk is cheap. If Pelosi's Congress had actually pursued charges against the very real criminality in the Bush White House and had Rove's pudgy ass frogmarched down Capitol Hill, it might have made the thieves and scoundrels think twice before embarking on their next caper. And even if it didn't stop the GOPers, it would have at least made clear Democrats were as willing to fight as hard against the GOP agenda as the left did to put them into a majority.

That they didn't is at least partly why they're struggling right now to recapture the enthusiasm of the base.
