"Pelosi wants to pick Alcee Hastings for Intel char?"
Have you ever had a teacher in school who was just so flat out nuts that her/his decisions made no sense whatever? I know I did. In the ninth grade I had a wacko Spanish teacher who perceived all sorts of minor slights she was receiving from both the school and society in general. She never ceased blabbering about how horrible the USA was and how WONDERFUL Fidel's Cuba was in comparison. What made this especially NUttie is that the teacher was a Cuban-American. Anyway, we students kept telling her that if she thought things were so great in Cuba then maybe she should move there. Guess what? That is exactly what she did. One day a new Spanish teacher showed up in class and informed us that the previous teacher had split for Cuba. Sometime after that we found out the Cuban government quickly imprisoned her because there could be no way a Cuban from the states would move to Cuba out of love for that Communist regime. They figured that she had to be some sort of spy. What they didn't factor in was the nuttiness element in that the this teacher moved to Cuba for the simple reason that she was FLAT OUT NUTS!!! This is also the way to analyze the recent maneuverings of the incoming Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Don't look for any complicated political motiviations behind her actions. Instead she is making really lousy decisions because, like my former Spanish teacher, Pelosi is FLAT OUT NUTS!!! I mean how else to describe her fervent opposition to the election of Steny Hoyer to the point of threating Democrat House members who voted for him instead of her personal choice, the ABSCAM corrupt Jack Murtha? It seems that Hoyer and Pelosi were Capitol Hill interns together over 40 years ago and something must have happened to push Pelosi over the edge where Hoyer was concerned. Was it a date gone bad or simply that Pelosi felt threatened by Hoyer's ambition? Who knows but what is a fact is that her Hoyer Hate caused Pelosi to act completely irrationally. And now we come to an even more crazy maneuver on the part of Pelosi. Instead of supporting Jane Harman, the ranking Democrat member of the House Intelligence Committee, as the Chair of that Committee, Pelosi is supporting the formerly impeached Alcee Hastings for that slot. So what was Jane Harman's "crime" that made Pelosi HATE her so much that she is about to make yet another crazy decision? It could well be something completely trivial like maybe Harman walked into Congress one day wearing the same type of dress as Pelosi. Even the DUmmies are astounded by Pelosi's total irrationality as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Pelosi wants to pick Alcee Hastings for Intel char? Are you F*CKING KIDDING ME?." The misspelled "char" is, ironically, the correct word to use since Pelosi will be charring the reputation of the Democrats with her choice for chair. BTW, Pelosi herself voted to impeach Hastings years ago but I guess her irrational Harmon Hate overrides any objections to corruption as we saw in her Hoyer Hate episode. So let us now watch the DUmmie jaws drop as they look on in Bolshevik Red at Nancy Pelosi charring the Congressional Democrats while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that the teacher replacing my NUttie Spanish teacher turned out to be equally NUttie, is in the [brackets]:
Pelosi wants to pick Alcee Hastings for Intel char? Are you F*CKING KIDDING ME?
[She wanted a great encore for her comedy act of supporting corrupt Jack Murtha as Majority Leader.]
Just heard a blip about this. Did I hear right?
[You have to hear it more than once since it is so hard to believe.]
I thought Jane Harmon was the ranking member. Not sure about this though.
[I don't know about Jane Harmon but Jane HARMAN is the ranking member on that committee.]
can she remove both Harman and Hastings from the committee? that might be the best thing to do if possible.
[That would be the best thing to do from the standpoint of Republicans.]
Any reason she couldn't bring in Dennis Kucinich? That would be rich.
[That would be hilarious.]
what specifically do you have against him? I'm curious.
effin' crook. f*ck 'im.
[Hastings or Murtha?]
Was Hastings removed, or was this the only impeachment of him and the impeachment resulted in an acquittal?
Impeached AND removed by a democratic congress.
[And then voted into Congress to join the Democrats who hailed him as one of their own.]
"When the House impeached federal judge Alcee Hastings in 1989, 16 of the 17 counts had to do with a bribery allegation dating to 1981, as we detailed yesterday. But one count was different, the National Review's Byron York noted a few days ago, and it cuts to the very core of whether Hastings is suitable to chair the House intelligence committee."
[Pelosi's Harman Hate must be burning red hot to support the impeached Hastings.]
Thank you, much appreciated. We mustn't ignore the 16 counts. Saying, "Oh, but he was acquitted unanimously on the 17th on weak evidence"... good lord.
[Aw give the guy a break. Being guilty on only 16 out of 17 counts isn't so bad.]
I trust Pelosi enough to think she knows what she's doing structuring the house the way she wants, and I don't think (as the M$M media is reporting) her problems with Harman or Hoyer have to do with "Jealousy" or "bad blood". Bullshit.
[I BEEEEEEELEEEEEEVE in Nancy Pelosi's rationality!!!]
So much for the "cleanest Congress in history"
[And this DUmmie WINS a Kewpie Doll for having a brief moment of mental clarity!]
Look, it doesn't matter a whit whether he was innocent. Public perception counts, and installing him as chair would be a fucking disaster. It doesn't take much in the way of brains to figure that out, sherlock. Harman is also tainted, but Reyes is third in line and there's also Rush Holt.
[And Bozo the Clown is also waiting in the wings.]
Public perception COUNTS. Call Pelosi's office about this! We cannot allow this to stand.
[Please don't ruin the comedy act.]
the public is never going to get beyond the FACT that Hastings was impeached and removed from the fed judiciary by Congress, and a dem congress at that.
[Yeah, the public does seem to be petty over trivial matters like that.]
In 1989, the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives took up the case, and Hastings was impeached for bribery and perjury by a vote of 413-3. Voters to impeach included Reps. Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, John Conyers and Charles Rangel. He was then convicted by the United States Senate, becoming the sixth Judge in the history of the United States to be removed from office by the Senate. The Senate had the option to forbid Hastings from ever seeking federal office again, but did not do so. Alleged co-conspirator William Borders went to jail again for refusing to testify in the impeachment proceedings, but was later given a full pardon by Bill Clinton during the end of his Presidency.
[And who got the sudden uptick in his bank account for that pardon? Billy's brother or one of Hillary's brothers?]
My questions are: Why did Clinton pardon Borders? How did Hastings become a member of Congress four years after impeachment? How is it that he has been sitting on these committees for over a decade with no flap?
[Answers: $$$$, stupid voters, and supportive Democrats.]
The Democrats need someone who is 1. Clean. 2.Clearly willing to stand up to Bush and 3.Qualified to do the job.
[You'll only be able to find someone who can meet criteria #2.]
