I’m glad somebody’s holding them accountable:
While discussing the Democratic ethics legislation, Rep. Rahm Emanuel, Democratic Caucus chairman, was interrupted by anti-war protestors lead by Cindy Sheehan, a well-known activist whose son was killed in Iraq.
“We’re here to let the Democrats know that the grass roots and the anti-war movement elected them to create change,” said Sheehan.
Sheehan said that she was joined by 70 protestors to hold the Democrats accountable, saying are pressing incoming Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the new Democratic leadership to stop authorizing additional funds for the Iraq war.
Sheehan said any additional authorizations would make the Democrats “co-conspirators” with the Republican in what she described as war crimes.
“There is already enough money in their killing budget to bring the troops home,” Sheehan said.
Nancy Pelosi is too busy holding her Pelosi-palooza to bother with such mundane details as the war. And you’ll notice that their faux-Rooseveltian “100 hours” is all about pork barrel-welfare entitlements,Â and nada about Iraq.
