Nut House

The House of Reprehensibles passed a resolution on Thursday commemorating 9/11 and congratulating all of the wonderful things that George Worthless Bush has done using 9/11 as an excuse. The resolution included the following:
"Whereas three years after September 11, 2001, the United States is
fighting a Global War on Terrorism to protect America and her friends and allies;

"Whereas since the United States was attacked, it has led an international military coalition in the destruction of two terrorist regimes in Afghanistan and Iraq while using diplomacy and sanctions in cooperation with Great Britain and the international community to lead a third terrorist regime in Libya away from its weapons of mass
In other words: "Hey 9/11 Commission! Go Cheney yourself! The FUBAR quagmire in Iraq is TOO a part of the 'war on terror!' Nyah-na-nyah-na-nyah-nyah!!"

Of course, the House Republicans had to force this through over intense opposition from the Democrats. Well, 15 Democrats (and one libertarian Republican). The "Revisionist History Resolution of 2004" passed in the People's Chamber of Deputies 406 to 16, with 12 not voting. The honorable few who still believe that night is night and day is day are: Conyers, Frank (MA), Hastings (FL), Hinchey, Honda, Jackson (IL), Kucinich, Lee, Lofgren, Markey, McDermott, Paul, Schakowsky, Stark, Waters, and Woolsey. My own Congressman, John Dingell, voted for this nonsense, and will hear from me about it!
