The Shape of Things to Come

In an uncharacteristically honest appraisal of what leading Democrats are plotting following a successful takeover of the House, Newsweek reveals why jihadis all over the world are praying to Allah for a Democratic victory in November:

Dingell is careful to say he is not out to get George W. Bush, or the Republicans, and insists he will extend his hand to his GOP colleagues and conduct "oversight thoughtfully and responsibly." He says "there's no list" of things he wants to investigate. But in the next breath, he quickly ticks off a list of things he wants to investigate: The Bush administration's handling of port security and the threat of nuclear smuggling; computer privacy; climate change; concentration of media ownership; the new Medicare Part D program, which he calls a "massive scandal," and the secret meetings of Vice President Dick Cheney's energy task force. "This is a hardheaded administration," Dingell says. "So we'll probably have lots of hearings."

The House of Representatives is full of John Dingell Democrats—exiled committee chairmen awaiting the day they can reclaim the center chair on the dais. All carry lists—if only in their heads—of issues and outrages they believe Republicans have failed to probe because such questions would be politically embarrassing to the president. Henry Waxman of California is another Democratic old-timer whose ire never dims. A tireless investigator, he's in line to head the Government Reform Committee, and plans to take aim at Halliburton and alleged rip-offs and contract abuse in Iraq. Then there's Charles Rangel, the New York congressman who's never met a cable show he didn't like. He is set to take over the Ways and Means Committee, and wants to take a hard look at the Bush tax cuts. John Conyers of Michigan has waited for years to head the Judiciary Committee. He's likely to convene hearings on the Patriot Act and domestic wiretapping. In the past, he has suggested the possibility of impeachment hearings for President Bush.

Stop listening to suspected terrorist phone calls, stop interrogating captured terrorists, redeploy the troops to Okinawa, continue the relentless efforts to criminalize their political enemies...but you don't you dare question their patriotism.

1 It is not only a lack of patriotism, it is a party completely devoid of ideas.

There is a paucity of forebrains in Democratic circle-jerks.

2 Lack of wisdom, lack judgment, lack of balls.

3 And don't forget that the new Chairwoman of the House Sub-Committee on Immigration will be Sheila Jackson-Lee, a certifiable insane Democrat from Texas.

4 You think thats bad. And now you will hear the Greyroosters pick on who the democrats will run for president in 2008. The Clinton bitch will slide downhill and the left will be championed by: ARE YOU READY? OBAMA in 2008.
Anyone who speaks against him will be attacked as a racist, a nazi, a bigot, a KKK'r. Get ready to join the Greyrooster. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the crew are going to have a field day. Maybe the Clinton bitch will run along with him and be VISE president.

5 Question: How will the Clinton bitch attack Obama's run without losing her solid black vote? This is going to be fun.

6 I think Obama is a great choice for a lefturd candidate; I can think of
no other scumbag who could polarize Evil Whitey against the lefturds so
well. Damn, I look forward to busting some lefturd heads when the
government collapses; it'll be better than Christmas!
