Let’s establish this in advance:  Congresspeople get unlimited franking, immediate and usually slavering access to the mainstream media, and usually a fan-club of alt-media types – bloggers and talk radio, whether left or right – to help them get their views out.

It’s practically impossible to “silence” a United States congressperson.

Now – I keep asking this, but every time I think “this can’t possibly get any worse”, I’m always unpleasantly surprised.  I ask the question “do you remember three years ago, when “dissent was the supreme form of patriotism””?

Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer, writing in USA Today, doesn’t want you to think they do (emphasis added):

These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades.

Are you people embarassed yet?
Nancy Pelosi – you live by Alinsky, you die (rhetorically) by Alinsky.  Didn’t he revolutionize civil dialog?

At any rate – it’s the facts that get us to these meetings.  The nation will be bankrupted.  The healthcare system – the best in the world – will be destroyed.

  1. Pelosi and Co. don’t like it when Alinsky’s Rules 6, 10 and 12 are used against them.

    They should learn to get used to it – we’re not going away.

  2. Geez, AC, what time do you get up? When you’re smearing poop on this website, I’m still sitting on the can.

    Oh, and Starbucks also has decaf for people like you. You should try it.


  3. You may want to skip this, Clownie. It contains something that makes you uncomfortable: Facts.
    Tax-dodging Tim the Treasury Secretary has asked Congres to increase the $12.1 trillion debt limit. By the end of the year the federal deficit will be $1.8 trillion according to the CBO, and that’s without Obamacare.
    “We’re here! We’re Democrats! We’re spending your grandchildren’s money today!

  4. Pelosi knows how to deal with this. Just create a house committee on un-American activities. Hope and change.
