Woe Unto Thee, Republican Hypocrites!
Republicans walk out on contempt vote
House Republicans Thursday left the chamber ahead of a vote seeking to hold White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten and former White House counsel Harriet Miers in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify before a panel investigating the firing of several United States attorneys.
The move was intended to show that Republicans want to work on a permanent update to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act rather than be part of a “partisan fishing expedition,” as House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) put it.
The Republicans spent more looking into Clinton's sexual history than investigating the WTC bombings, and that putz calls this a "partisan fishing expedition?" What gall! And to make it worse, what the Repugnicans walkout is really about is carrying water for ATT. These people have no honor! Please Lord, smite them!
