The Fall of the House of Representatives

The House of Representatives decided to wait a whole week to punish Rep. Joe Wilson for shouting “you lie” during Obama’s healthcare speech (when he actually lied.)  The hubris here is stunning.

“The resolution is not about the substance of an issue but about the conduct we expect of one another in the course of doing our business,” declared House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md.

This is the same man who, along with the Botoxasaurus, wrote an article entitled:

‘Un-American’ Attacks Can’t Derail Healthcare Debate

Really?  Calling opponents of HR 3200 “un-American” is a-okay, but legitimately calling out the President when he was lying is worthy of petty, vindictive legislation.

I never thought I’d say this, but I agree with Barney Frank:

One of the Democrats voting “present,” Barney Frank of Massachusetts, said, “I think it’s bad precedent to put us in charge of deciding whether people act like jerks. I don’t have time to monitor everyone’s civility.”

Especially people who are in no place to monitor the civility of anyone.

Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi has shot down a vote on withdrawing funding from ACORN six times.

I remember an Under Armour commercial from not too long ago with the tagline “We Must Protect This House”.

What happens when the House isn’t worth protecting?
