Why Shuler and Kissell MUST Go to DC

It's not censure or impeachment that Republicans are really worried about if they lose control of Congress. It's subpoenas. If they lose the ability to block Democrats from conducting genuine investigations backed by the subpoena power of Congress, the jig is up. And they know it.

That, from Kevin Drum, is prompted by the following paragraph from a Newsweek article by Michael Hirsh about mismanagement of the Iraq reconstruction effort:

There is much more to come, especially on the little-noticed issue of contracting in Iraq, which the watchdog group Transparency International last year warned could become “the biggest corruption scandal in history." The Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction is expected to issue a harshly critical report in May concluding that the CPA did not have disciplined contracting procedures in place, according to several people involved in drafting the report. If the Democrats manage to get control of the House later this year, it's all going to come in an avalanche of subpoenas and new investigations.

Let's do our part.

Pretty amazing, no?

So...China will now be in control of scanning all inbound cargo for nucUler components....hmmmmmmm.......

Oh...and also....the SBOE has turned over the testimony to the DA to see if Black's campaign broke any laws. I don't think he did because if it was clear the board would have determined that. I think it's just a matter of whether you are interpreting the law by the letter or the spirit. We'll just have to see. Journal Online

Yeah, what Anglico said! My only wish is that these subpoenas come down the pike pronto. I don't want much time to pass from when Dim Son and Co. exit in a cloud of shame and vituperation and the criminal charges start rolling in! They must pay.

ae! on BlueNC!

You just made my night week March! It's good to see you here (as it were).

BlueNC rocks!

Hi, Lance! I've been by many a time, but I figured no one really needed me to be saying, "Yeah!" and "Right on!" all the time, which is what most of my replies amount to.

Y'all are doing a hell of a job. I'm so proud of you and of NC! =D

Dim Son and Co.

I thought I had seen every Bushism in the English language. This is perfect. (I don't get out much.)

Some Absurdities Just Write Themselves!

Anglico, I love how perfectly descriptive "Dim Son" is, too. Plus, I'm a sucker for puns. Please feel free to take this hither and yon. The more, the merrier!

Great job again on the site, guys!
