Offense and Defense

I was thinking yesterday about offense versus defense, and trying to figure out why our Congresscritters always seem to be stuck playing D against the incredibly aggressive offense of the Fascists.

Case in point - the Kyl-Lieberman Amendment, which, thanks to our strong defense (thank you, Not-Macaca Senator Webb!), was rendered mostly toothless before it came to a vote today. You have to wonder, however, how the other team always seems to be coming up with more and more outrageous maneuvers that catch our defense off guard. And how are they even bringing these bills to the floor, when Harry Reid can stop them in committee? Guess what - they're not bills, they're AMENDMENTS to bills. There is no procedure that allows him to stop these amendments from coming to a vote. So since there is always a bill to be voted on, they can keep creating havoc until the cows come home, or the Republic becomes the Fourth Reich - whichever comes first.

But then the light dawned. The offense our Congress is playing is this thing called...GOVERNING. You know, making legislation, doing oversight and investigations? Something that the Congress hasn't done for, oh, about 13 years? As they have admitted time after time, the Fascists have zero interest in governing. So what else do they have to do with their time but obstruct, divide and distract with amendments like these ridiculous "Sense of the Senate" resolutions?

One thing I think some Congressional Democrats still don't realize is that there is no way that any Fascists are going to switch sides, at least not on our timetable. For example, Congresswoman Jane Harman, on Countdown with Keith Olbermann last night, revealed how the Congress was terrified by falsified reports of an imminent attack on the Capitol into ratifying the overly-broad FISA Amendment last summer before their recess. In her remarks on Countdown, Ms. Harman stated, "I think we can get intelligence right, and I think we can do it in a bipartisan way."

No, Congresswoman. All respect, but we can't do ANYTHING in a bipartisan way, except, apparently, vote that attacking military guys in the press is bad and that Iran is verrry naughty. The only agenda the Fascists now have is to make Democrats look weak, and to hold onto their seats by the skin of their teeth in 2008.

We need to take the offense in another way now: We need to draw a line in the sand. No matter what they do, we need to oppose it, even if we don't have the votes to do so. It doesn't matter if it's a resolution that puppies are cute. Just the fact that it comes from the Fascists means that it's worthless. The sooner our Congresscritters realize this, the sooner the American people will realize that the Democrats understand the true threat to America: Republico-Fascists.
