House Debate

Shares


I don’t have any idea who Representative Steny Hoyer from Maryland is, but his remarks about tonight’s sham in the House were memorable. The willingness of the GOP to politicize the deaths of American soliders is sordid and must be condemned.

Wow, the Republicans have some spectacularly stupid people on their side of the aisle. As it turns out, 9/11 and Iraq are connected, somehow we can ‘unite the terrorists with us’ by saying God Bless America, and we can best honor the dead of Iraq by continuing the senseless killing.
