Nancy “Buy My Book” Pelosi adjourns the 14% Congress for a five week vacation – having categorically refused to bring up energy bills for a vote – and House Republicans stay on the floor discussing energy bills.
“The C-SPAN cameras were gone and the microphones were off, but that didn’t stop a small group of Republicans from taking over the House floor after the House adjourned for five weeks to attack Democrats for leaving town without doing something to lower gas prices… “Madame Speaker, Where art thou?” Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, shouted from the well of the House.”
Worse. Congress. Ever.
Still think that Democratic leadership gives a shit about the energy crisis?
Update: This is classic, from Politico:
Update 6 – Rep Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) just pretended to be a Democrat. He stood on the other side of the chaber and listed all of the GOP bills that the Dems killed.
He then said “I am a Democrat and here is my energy plan” and he held up a picture of an old VW Bug with a sail attached to it. He paraded around he house floor with the sign while the crowd cheered.
