Congress needs a playpen

Dear Nancy Pelosi,

QUIT WASTING OUR TAX DOLLARS. I certainly hope your grandchildren are better behaved than you are. The U.S. Senate, even in the midst of hearings on steroid use in Major League baseball, (which they shouldn't be involved in...) managed to pass a FISA bill. You and your minions in the House decide to play games a pre-schooler would delight in..."Let's demand a cookie before we pick up our toys..." it's your job to vote on this bill. It's not new, it's been around a long time, and sure since 9/11 we have had changes. Some people don't like those changes, and some of those people are in the House, fine, DEBATE AND VOTE. Isn't that what we pay you people to do? Tell the people what you don't like and why and work it...get it done, however it needs to be done.

This ridiculous position you are taking demanding Harriet Myers to testify about the U.S. Attorney firings has nothing to do with FISA and is an exercise in futility. U.S. Attorneys serve at the pleasure of the President and you know it, you are just trying to make mountains out of specks of dust. (No, I don't even see the slightest molehill.) So now, I am looking at the Republican House members assembling on the Capitol steps to protest your protest and all I want to do is go to Wal-Mart (yes, WAL-MART...) and buy a carton of pacifiers to send to you folks so you can have "time-out" to think about what you've done wrong and make the decision to come out and do what you are supposed to be doing.

It's called the "people's business." And, we pay you to do it. GET TO WORK!
