Turn Out the Lights, The (Dem) Party is Over

Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats closed the current Congressional session for the summer, despite doing nothing on gas prices. However, Republicans refused to leave and staged an impromptu protest.

Briefly, the lights and cameras were ordered to be turned off by the "leader". While the lights in The People's House were eventually turned back on, cameras (CSPAN) are no longer recording.

A couple dozen House Republicans were joined by a number of staffers, the Boy Scouts, members of the German army (ok, that's weird), and even some DC tourists.

The event lasted 5 hours, with a standing ovation by witnesses to the mini protest, followed by cheers of USA, USA, USA!

Tony Phyrillas has more from House Whip Roy Blunt (R-MO). followed the entire saga.

I, as a taxpaying and voting American Citizen, have never been more insulted in my entire life. The Ultra Liberal Communists (err ahh, excuse me, Democrats) have lost the pulse of the American People. But then again, I sometimes wonder if they ever had their fingers on the pulse to begin with. Obviously their vacation is more important to them than issues of grave national concern.

You have to wonder if the Blue Dog Dems are shaking their heads right now, wondering "What the hell just happened?"

If Bush issues an Executive Recall of the House, I will forgive him for his wrongdoings.
