    How is that anything but a lie?
    Not a lie, a simple clerical error.

    Get real.

    Why would they lie? It's easily-noticed information, on a public website.

    Because they can, and no one of any importance or consequence will do anything to stop them.

    Then they wouldn't even bother lying or trying to hide it, would they? They'd just do it.

    Don't act like a paranoid teabagging lunatic and turn a simple clerical error into a massive conspiracy. You demean yourself.

    After researching public records, newspaper articles, civil court transcripts, and criminal records, Capitol Hill Blue discovered that:


    * 29 members of Congress have been accused of spousal abuse.

    * 7 have been arrested for fraud.

    * 19 have been accused of writing bad checks.

    * 117 have bankrupted at least two businesses.

    * 3 have been arrested for assault.

    * 71 have credit reports so bad they can't qualify for a
    credit card.

    * 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges.

    * 8 have been arrested for shoplifting.

    * 21 are current defendants in lawsuits.

    * And in 1998 alone, 84 were stopped for drunk driving, but released after they claimed Congressional immunity.


    Double check these though. I'm still trying to find out if Capitol Hill Blue has any political bias.

Who in his wisdom, told a room full of reporters that he “forced the shutdown because Clinton had rudely made him and Bob Dole sit at the back of Air Force One.”

    Newt was a damn fool to say such s***, that shutdown, is what cost Bob Dole and the Republicans the presidential election in 1996.
