GOP Calls Emergency Meeting
The Boot (both) to the Republicans in the House who met in emergency Rules committee session today to discuss - not nuclear power, not relief for Japan, not the economy, not the budget, not jobs, jobs, jobs - no. Defunding NPR. The vote will be tomorrow, with no debate. NPR defunding is an emergency. I'd call these birds names, if I wasn't a lady. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, was her usual quotable self. "This is what America asked us to do." If I, as an American, asked you to go to hell, would you? Pointy boots, size 23EEE, to the grand ol' party for their whacked sense of emergency.
