Barney Frank voted present. I fell of my chair when I heard that and that wasn’t good because I was driving my car at the time. Rep. Frank had this to say in classic Barney-ese:
“I think it’s bad precedent to put us in charge of deciding whether people act like jerks,” Frank said. “I don’t have time to monitor everyone’s civility.”
I loathe this guy but good for him. He of all people in Congress stepped up and showed some integrity and foresight. Again I loathe him but I have to give him some props.
The other surprise was Dennis Kucinich voting against the resolution. Again WOW! Either he really is a nutter or he like a handful of others thinks there is something more important on the Congressional plate.
Well the deed is done let’s see what these folks do now. My guess is pray all weekend for another juicy distraction.
