CONTEMPT CITIATIONS MEASURE PASSES

Washington D.C.--It appears once again that the GOP is putting partisanship above the interests of the nation. This should be unsurprising to even the most casual observer. The vote on the House Judiciary Committee was along partisan-lines (22-17), with Republicans banging the same tired drum-beat: "Political theater...a waste of time." Right, we've never, ever seen that with the GOP in-the-majority. Never. Not even in 2006, not once, not ever. What they don't want you to understand is that Rep. Conyers has to move on this, irregardless of his feelings for the Bush administration. It's normal procedure, and his responsibility. Republicans abdicated this responsibility when they were in the majority. Call and e-mail your representatives now, and give-em'-hell.
