I know he’s telling the truth–his lips are moving!

From POLITICAL HOTSHEET at CBS News Blogs (September 30, 2009):

Democratic Representative Alan Grayson of Florida, who has come under fire from Republicans for suggesting on the House floor Tuesday night that “Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick,” said in an interview with CBSNews.com Wednesday that the response to his comments has been “overwhelmingly positive.”

“People are calling us from all over the country to congratulate us for telling the truth,” he said. “People are happy to see a Democrat with guts.”

She’d be less embarrassing if she flew to Argentina and had an affair!

THE HUFFINGTON POST:

Three Republican congressman have publicly chastised fellow Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) for declaring that she would not fill our her census form.

“Boycotting the constitutionally mandated Census is illogical, illegal and not in the best interest of our country,” said Reps. Patrick McHenry (N.C.), Lynn Westmoreland (Ga.) and John Mica (Fla.), members of the Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Information Policy, Census, and National Archives in a statement Wednesday.

The Little Prince

From the Washington Post:

Like the company he founded, defense contractor Erik Prince doesn’t seem to answer to anybody.

His security business, Blackwater, has been involved in at least 195 shootings in Iraq — but it has operated outside U.S. and Iraqi laws. Similarly, when Prince made a rare public appearance before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee yesterday, he acted as if the lawmakers were wasting his time.
