Republican rebellion?

The Crypt: House Dems turn out the lights but GOP keeps talking - Politico.com

I am on my lunch break and just ran across this. Has anyone else heard anything about it? It sounds like it was really cool.

Rush and Hannity both covered it on their radio shows. Apparently, C-SPAN
is set up contractually to cover all procedings. Pelosi figured she'd turn off
the power, lights, microphones, etc, and C-SPAN would be unable to let
the populace see the shenanigans the Dems were pulling today.


Didn't work. Lights back on, and their still talking for all I know.

We need President Bush to call them back from their vacation to deal
with the much-needed Energy legislation.

I guess they're done now. I would've expected them to last longer than 5 hours

Stuff like that really upsets me.

Pelosi is nothing but political monkey. She doesn't give a rats azz about the people of this country or her constituents. She just likes things to be her way. Screw her and all democrat fish eatin friends. How dare she turn the lights off on someone still in the chamber. Could you imagine if a republican did that?

That is good stuff. they need to be doing more things like this to show the American people who DOES care about whats going on. Sure wish they could've held out for a little bit more time, like the weekend maybe....THAT would've got some national coverage

They have held out. They are still down there talking in the dark.

Political Radar: Republicans Protest Congressional Vacation as Gas Prices Soar

Read some of the comments after the article. They are quite funny.

This is the first I have heard of this, has it not been on the news or did I just miss it?

You are beginning to see the light my young padawan. That's kinda why some of us are so upset, because it really hasn't been in the news. Yet this is a major news worthy story.
