Governed by Children Watch: Insanity in the House

I have absolutely nothing nice to say about the ridiculous political stunt being pulled by the Republican leadership in the House this evening, but I'm going to rant a little about it nonetheless. The way that a distinguished veteran like John Murtha has been smeared over the last 24 hours for voicing his concerns about the Administration's Iraq policy makes me sick. And the fact that the House leadership sees fit to spend an entire day on this silly resolution designed purely to be petty is downright juvenile. I deplore the entire proceeding.

I will also take this opportunity to condemn the hateful and unnecessary comments of newly-elected congresswoman Jean Schmidt [video here]. She should be ashamed of herself.

Where are the leaders of this country? When will we elect representatives who stand up and behave like adults instead of kindergartners who missed their naptime? That day cannot come soon enough. Credit to those who have acquitted themselves admirably today, on both sides of the aisle.
