Sleeping With The Enemy...

In an amazing display of Bi-partisanship and cooperation, Nancy Pelosi has decided to support Rep. John "Jack" Murtha for the position of Majority Leader in the 110th Congress.

In a letter released by Murtha's office, Pelosi told the Pennsylvania congressman that his surprise call for the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq in 2005 "changed the national debate and helped make Iraq the central issue of this historic election."

"Your leadership gave so many Americans, including respected military leaders, the encouragement to voice their own disapproval at a failed policy that weakens our military and makes stability in that region even more difficult to achieve," she wrote.

Refresh my memory...

What was the final vote in the House on Murtha's idea to cut and run in Iraq?

Murtha has been one of the most divisive figures in the History of American Politics. He is the poster boy for "Victory through Retreat" War strategy.

Last year, he asserted that U.S. Marines went crazy and began executing innocent Iraqi Citizens in the village of Haditha, and now, more than a year later, he has yet to apologize for those remarks, even though no charges have ever been filed, and no Marine has been convicted of wrongdoing in the Haditha Incident.

He has done everything he could think of to undermine the War effort, and continues to do so.

He is also the second most famous Un-Indicted Co-Conspirator in History (The MOST famous was Richard Nixon) because of his entanglement in the ABSCAM Corruption and Bribery investigation.

Had he not turned State's Evidence, he would be in Prison.

It's not like Pelosi had no other choice...

Rep. Steny Hoyer is also vying for the position of House Majority Leader, but Pelosi doesn't like him.

Now, Hoyer is a Liberal, so he would not be my personal first choice for Majority Leader.

But as far as I can tell, he is a CLEAN Liberal, and does not openly call for America's defeat in the War in Iraq.

He is far and away more desirable in that position than Murtha. (To everyone but Nancy Pelosi.)

Murtha is not the only crook that Pelosi has openly embraced...

She has rejected Rep. Jane Harman for the position of Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee in favor of Rep. Alcee Hastings, who was Impeached from the Federal Bench for accepting Bribes in 1992. ( A man who has proven himself to be bribable as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee? Does that sound like a good idea to you?)

Aparently, she has chosen to use her Broom to gather the trash from the floor of the House, and put it all into positions of Leadership.


The truth is, I want her to have who she wants, in whatever position of power she wants to place them.

She is not interested in Bi-Partisanship, and neither should the Republicans be.

I don't want my Representatives attempting to work with Pelosi, because I think that she is wrong. Wrong about everything from what the Constitution says, to Military Strategy, to Economics to Human Nature.

And a compromise with Wrong means accepting a degree of Wrong, and agreeing with Wrong.

I want the next two years to show in graphic detail the differences between Conservative Republicans, and Liberal Democrats.

There is no place for Moderates on either side.

Not now.

Believe what you believe, and believe it out loud, and do not apologize, whatever it is that you believe.

Do not back down under any circumstances.

When you get into bed with your enemies, you get screwed, and that's all you get.
