Congressional Moonbats

Things that make you go "arrrggghhhh!" So good old Barbara Boxer has joined the lunatic brigade in challenging the election because of "issues" with Ohio, eh?

Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, D-Ohio, on Thursday contested the results of the Electoral College that would give President Bush a second term.

A joint session of Congress met to certify the election on Thursday but quickly recessed per congressional rules to go to their respective chambers to debate certification for up to two hours.

"I raise this objection neither to put the nation in a turmoil of proposed overturn election," Jones said afterward in the House. "I raised this objection because I am convinced that we as a body must conduct a formal" debate and "protect the integrity of the true will of the people."

Yada, yada, yada. More sour grapes from folks who just cannot accept the results. Would they have fought so hard if there was widespread allegations of fraud in the state of Washington? Oops, guess not, since a Democrat won after forcing recounts in her benefit. What about the allegations of widespread corruption in Philadelphia that benefited Kerry? What’s that you say? No? Oops, I forgot, Kerry barely won Pennsylvania. So, I would guess that she proposed it to attempt to steal the election.

The California Democrat (Pug Boxer) said that even though the last Congress passed the Help America Vote Act (search), lawmakers had not done enough to examine voting problems.

Hmmm, so she admits her incompetence in not following through. Sure doesn’t sound like she is taking any responsibility, since that is not the far left Dem way. How soon before she Blames Bush? Could she not have done more herself, along with Conyers, if she was so concerned Prior to the election? Would she be bloviating if Kerry had won? I doubt it 100%.

Republicans from Ohio were not pleased by the Democrats’ objection. Rep. Deborah Pryce, R-Ohio, called the challenge an effort by "certain extreme elements of Senator Kerry’s own party" to mock an election that Kerry himself conceded.

Sen. Mike DeWine, R-Ohio, said charges made about Ohio’s election are “wild, incoherent and completely unsubstantiated. He delivered a statement on the Senate floor saying he found it "almost impossible to believe" that the Senate was debating the matter when the official results showed that Bush won his state with more 118,000 votes.

Let’s give it up to Senator John Kerry (and that was written with respect, if you have ever read some of the other terms I have called him) for staying in reality, though.

Kerry, who lost the election to Bush and is currently overseas, said in a letter sent to supporters Wednesday he would not take part in a formal protest of the Ohio Electors because, despite widespread reports of voting irregularities, his legal team had "found no evidence that would change the outcome of the election."

Kerry said he planned to introduce election-reform legislation and push for congressional hearings on the voting irregularities.

Good for him. No, really. I hope he sticks with it, and takes into account fraud in all States and all parties, so that the system will be fixed so that there can never be these type of lunatic challenges again. I do have one issue with his letter, though:

Florida 2000 was a wake up call. But the Republicans who control Congress ignored it. Will they now ignore what happened in 2004?

If the Democrats in Congress are so incompetent that they cannot do anything, then why are they there?

    I gotta tell you. I am just so tired of hearing politicians talk about everything that’s wrong and how they’re going to fix it. I guess I just wish they’d all just shut up, get off their butts and do it already!
