No, Nancy Pelosi, It's Not About Voter Suppression. It's About A MURDERED U.S. Agent. The End.

LawdaMERCY, the field day the left would have with Nancy Pelosi if she were conservative!  Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann have nothing on her. Nothing. Not even combined. First, there was the "We have to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it" (I can't even comment on that one...), followed by the "There's something I know" incident with Newt (someone on an ETHICS Committee releasing privileged information....that's rich.), and now Nancypants is leading the way (no...literally) on accusing the GOP of having some racist, political agenda behind the vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress.
Is this woman for real??

In an(other) epic failure to paint herself as some civil rights champion among the ranks of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks, Pelosi marched right out of the U.S. Capitol yesterday, leading members of  "her" Congressional Black Caucus (I'm still confused about that one...) and other Democrats when the clock struck vote time.
(Check it... Almost thought she was Jesus. Then I realized it's a pantsuit, not a robe.)

So... Erm... Recap:
Pelosi and Congressional Dems had the chance yesterday to do the right thing, which would have been to apologize -with both their words and their votes- to the family of a slain U.S. Border Patrol Agent who was murdered as a result of his own government's failure in a secret operation gone awry, but WALKED OUT instead??
They had the chance to serve justice to a family and a nation (two nations, actually, if you count the hundreds of Mexican civilians who also lost their lives as a result of Fast and Furious) by accepting responsibility, admitting that they screwed up, and vowing this kind of tragedy will never, ever happen again, and they WALKED OUT?? Dude. I think my brain is bleeding...

Cue the Demzie's game of diversionary tactics by trying to compare President Obama's use of executive privilege in this case to the time George W. Bush exercised executive privilege as it pertained to Karl Rove. Ummmm no. I almost threw up over the comparison. Here's what Nancypants had to say about it:

“I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day.... I’m not kidding. There’s a prison here in the Capitol. If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him.” (Super professional, no?)
When asked on what basis she could have arrested him, she added, “Oh, any number [of charges]...”. 

Love me some fact-free general statements by the left that they somehow believe supports their argument.
What's worse than their tactics of debating with nothing more than insults and false claims of racism is their ability to find some point in history when Republicans did the same thing and bust out a "Burn!"  is the fact that a large number of Americans BELIEVE THEM! Seriously, my brain is bleeding.

Here's the thing. Not the same thing! Not even close. HUNDREDS of people dead because the United States government had a sneaky lil plan to prompt a ban on assault rifles since they KNOW it would never pass otherwise is NOT the same as the firing of 7 U.S. Attorneys. What is wrong with these people??? Oh, and by the way... Karl Rove? Presidential adviser. Eric Holder? Attorney General of the United States of America who is ultimately responsible for the actions of the Department of Justice. Demzies LOVE comparing things like this. Forget oranges, that's like..... apples and donuts. I find it very interesting that so many of the Dems who believed at the time that it was the duty of the President, the White House and the Department of Justice to fully abide by the subpoenas issued by the Judiciary Committee over a case of seven attorneys being fired now believe it's an unpatriotic, racist, politically motivated ploy by the GOP to demand the same regarding an operation that led to HUNDREDS of deaths. 

Brain. Bleeding! We are living on the same planet, right? Did I miss something? That's not even the worst of it. She somehow also managed to work in some speeches the idea that the GOP is going after Holder because he's trying to overturn voter suppression initiatives. WHAT?!? All this time, I thought it was about the Attorney General and the White House LYING to Congress and refusing to release subpoenaed documents about a botched illegal weapons smuggling operation that brought about the deaths of HUNDREDS of people. Geez, what was I thinking?

Of all the awesomeness surrounding Nancypants's verbal acid trip about this whole matter, I think my favorite part is what she said regarding Darrell Issa (R-CA):

"'Loose cannon' would sort of be like such a compliment to Darrell Issa. 'Loose cannon' would be a moderate phrase. This is an explosive device," she said. "It doesn't serve our country, and it undermines the true purpose of contempt of Congress."

Hey, Nancy, know what DOES serve our country? Federal agents. Like Brian Terry. He lost his life doing it. At the hands of his own government. A government that refuses to apologize to his family for it. Almost 600 days later, no phone call, no letter, no personal visit. Nothing. President Obama had time to call a woman who was called a slut on the radio, but for a family who lost their son in the line of duty because our DOJ screwed up? Nothing. He had time to address Trayvon Martin's parents from the White House Rose Garden, but for Brian Terry's parents? Nothing. Except a bunch of Congressional Democrats walking out on a family and a country that deserves justice. Unbelievable. You know, to be the party of compassion, you sure do a bang-up job of hiding it.
