    Oh yeah, the Democrats are so much better than the Republicans. Can't get something passed? Let's change the rules! Don't like the process? Change the rules! Make no mistake folks, these people we elect are simply different sides of the same coin. Both parties are to blame for the intransigence we see in Congress.

    Oh goodie! The Republicans are going to throw a tantrum!

    Christ almighty, can we just recall all of them?

    Ohh so its perfectly ok for dems to prevent almost half the house from participating?

    As I recall the Dems made a HUGE point the last few years when ever the Republicans even hinted they might change something, with the Press 100 percent behind the Democrats. The Dems whined over and over how they were "shut out" and that if elected they wouldn't shut anyone out.

    Doesn't anybody think its time we actually started paying for Dubbyuh's war instead of mortgaging the futures of our children's children's children? Of course, it might be a good way to force the here-to-fore staunch supporters of Dubbyuh's war to STOP supporting it...Make them pay for it.

    Thanks for the link, but I wouldn't be expecting that unbiased report anytime soon, the quibble-dicks on both side of the aisle need to be slapped down.
