Democrats Take a Vacation; Republicans Demand Action

While gas prices remain near record highs (oil is up about $1 today), House Democrats have voted to take a five week vacation – that means they’ll be out of Washington until the second week of September. In the mean time, Republicans have taken over the House Chamber, allowed in tourists, and have spent the last four hours speaking on the issue of energy – demanding Bush call the Democrats back to vote on a drilling bill. They’ve been at it four more than four hours, and it doesn’t look like they are planning to stop anytime soon.

In case you are wondering why you can’t watch this on C-SPAN, its because Pelosi had the microphones, lights, and television cameras shut off – and tried to have the media removed from the building by Capitol Police. That sounds more like Communist Russia than our own country, don’t you think?
