Contempt for contempt
As if to prove that our representatives in Congress have as stiff a spine as Gumby when it comes to standing up to the president, Nancy Pelosi is once again dragging her feet in putting contempt citations up for a vote.
Josh Bolten and Harriet Meirs have both ignored Congressional subpoenas to appear before committees investigating the political firings of US Attorneys by the Bush administration. The ability to investigate is at the core of the separation of power, and checks and balances. Once again the comedy team of Pelosi and Reid seem more interested in making the President happy.
