Angry This is why nothing gets done

http://thehill.com/leading-the-news/...007-09-20.html



http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20070920/...tHUd0LIX1Z.3QA



the links go to stories of our illustrious u.s. senate; obsessing over, authoring, debating, and voting on a resolution IN RESPONSE TO A NEWSPAPER AD.

i wonder if there's a resolution against the "swift" boat propaganda?

I can't believe how much I here about this issue and the stupid NEW OJ case on Fox News here in Colombia. You would think the world-broadcast could focus on something a little more important.

I guess the senate is good at micromanaging?!?! Maybe they need to look at the bigger picture.

And I won't comment on Bush...not worth it.

Brough to You by Sen. John Cornyn. My favorite part...

Quote:
On May 18, 2007, Cornyn was involved in an altercation with fellow (and Senior) Senator John McCain (R-AZ). "During a meeting Thursday on immigration legislation, McCain and Sen. John Cornyn got into a shouting match when Cornyn started voicing concerns about the number of judicial appeals that illegal immigrants could receive, according to multiple sources — both Democrats and Republicans — who heard firsthand accounts of the exchange from lawmakers who were in the room. McCain cursed at Cornyn after he told McCain, "Wait a second here. I've been sitting in here for all of these negotiations and you just parachute in here on the last day. You're out of line."[13]

Yup, if you give the sheeple something to bleat about, then they won't be watching what you are doing. Classic magician's redirect, draw attention here, and people won't pay attention there. This is why I don't watch news shows, and get my news from the internet. On the web it doesn't take long to determine what news sources are halfway impartial and which ones are trying to sell a product wrapped in newspaper.

"The U.S. Senate later voted 72-25 to repudiate the ad. Twenty-two Democrats joined 49 Republicans and one independent in denouncing it."

It was those two sentences buried in the middle of the above yahoo link that caught my eye.
