    As much as I hate to agree with the Black caucus on this, they are right, Jefferson is being made an example of by Pelosi and the Dems, he is the sacrificial lamb.

    No, it won't. In stripping Jefferson of his committee assignment, they are trying to show they are "just as tough as the Republicans."

    But how much you want to bet this gets nowhere near the play in the MSM Trent Lott's blown-out-of-any-proportion-to-reality ouster or Tom Delay's second round of the same accusations got?

    If they were that tough then they should have done it right away. But it did get done. Im suprised they even had enough stomach to do this much. What with the "ever so important black vote" being needed for the elections. :rolleyes:

    Point is, despite the initial cowardice by Pelosi and the sticking of their finger in the proverbial wind to see which way to go on this, the right thing was done.

    What was blown out of proportion re Trent Lott. Was he misquoted?

    He's my Congressman. I can personally assure you that he deserves whatever he gets.
