    It accomplishes underlining the fact that behavior of that kind is not acceptable in the House of Representatives.

    There are many ways of expressing disapproval, and very few that are against the rules.

    And before anyone points out Article I Section 5 in the Constitution the House can't make rules that stimmy Free Speech. I would ask Speaker Pelosi to show me were in Article II Section 3 were it states that you can't heckle or say anything else when the President is giving a Speech to a Joint Session of Congress.

    Free Speech is that Free
    So you are opposed to all decorum rules? How would the government ever get anything done?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    He already apologized, a lot better than any of the democrats did during the Bush Administration.

    Meh. The issue is to create another distraction so we dont pay any attention to what they are really doing and what they should be doing.
    Thank you

    I think they should go forward with the vote for a different reason.

    I'm sick of the democrats being spineless. Pussy-footing around like you're still the minority party is doing nothing but losing the respect of the american people.

    Of course actually, ya know, writing a law would be more important than this simple display. If they pass nothing with their supermajority by 2010, then frankly, they'll DESERVE to get voted out in droves.

    And I just find it hilarious that the president was gracious enough to accept the apology publically and to move on but Little Ms. Sunshine, Nancy Pelosi has to just keep it going because the sagging bitch can't run the house effectively so she has to have something to do.

    I can't stand that leathery, botoxed up old crone. The best thing that could happen for the coutry is for a piece of space debris to fall out of orbit and land squarely on her. That or for Dorothy to throw a bucket of water on her.

    Pelosi was actually against any vote - others are responsible for it.

    Oh well I stand corrected. Except for the part about squishing Pelosi being a good thing.
