You probably have already heard that the moonbats – those wonderful activists that work for the betterment of the world, have left their mark on the Capitol steps.

Graffiti:

Anti-war protesters were allowed to spray paint on part of the west front steps of the United States Capitol building after police wereordered to break their security line by their leadership, two sources toldThe Hill.

According to the sources, police officers were livid when theywere told to fall back by U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) Chief Phillip Morse andDeputy Chief Daniel Nichols. “They were the commanders on the scene,” one source said,who requested anonymity. “It was disgusting.”

After police ceded the stairs, located on the lower west front of the Capitol, the building was locked down, the source added.

A second source who witnessed the incident said that the policehad the crowd stopped at Third Street, but were told to bring the police line in front of the Capitol.

Approximately 300 protesters were allowed to take the steps and began to spray paint “anarchist symbols” and phrase such as “Our capitol building” and “you can’t stop us” around the area, the source said.

Spit:

There were a few tense moments, however, including an encounter involving Joshua Sparling, 25, who was on crutches and who said he was a corporal with the 82nd Airborne Division and lost his right leg below the knee in Ramadi, Iraq. Mr. Sparling spoke at a smaller rally held earlier in the day at the United States Navy Memorial, and voiced his support for the administration’s policies in Iraq.

Later, as antiwar protesters passed where he and his group were standing, words were exchanged and one of the antiwar protestors spit at the ground near Mr. Sparling; he spit back.

Threats:

Some lively quotes from the pukey video of Jane:

…I haven’t spoken at an antiwar rally in 34 years because I’ve been afraid that because of the lies that have been and continue to be spread about me and that war, that they would be used to hurt this new anti-war movement. But silence is no longer an option. {enthusiastic nostalgic applause}

I’m so sad that we still have to do this – that we did not learn the lessons from the Viet Nam War. {Yes Jane – you did not learn the lessons did you? What about that apology?} That we’ve made the same mistakes, blindness to the realities on the ground, hubris and arrogance in dealing with a people and culture far older than we are and that we understand so little. {A people and culture far older than we are? What are you saying here Jane? We’re not being understanding enough of a group of misogynistic people who would have no problem beheading you after humiliating you in the worst possible physical ways?}

Pelosi won't block funds for surge – DU feels betrayed

Why was this announcement an ABC/Diane Sawyer exclusive? Was she afraid to announce this among her peers?

Exclusive: Pelosi Won’t Block Funding to Stop Iraq Troop Surge, Even Though Situation Is a ‘Tragedy’

Nancy Pelosi Tells ABC News’ Diane Sawyer Bush “Has to Answer for This War”

Jan. 19, 2007 — There may be a growing battle between Congress and the president over the Iraq War strategy, but new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said she won’t block funding for additional troops.

Pelosi’s position, revealed in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer, came days after a group of senators announced a bipartisan resolution condemning the Bush administration’s plan to increase U.S. forces in Iraq by more than 20,000 troops.

While the Senate resolution would be non-binding, it would send a message to the president, and at least a dozen Republican senators have already offered their support.

In an interview with Sawyer, Pelosi said Democrats in Congress would not be held responsible for putting the soldiers in the troop surge in additional harm’s way by blocking funds, but also called the situation in Iraq a “tragedy” and a “stark blunder.”

I did a little DUmpster diving (Democratic Underground) and it seems that the DUers are feeling unraveled and a bit betrayed by Ms. Pelosi and her party:

Its called “Being betrayed by your Democratic Leadership”…

And thats exactly what is happening.The people voted Democratic because that seemed the only way to express disapproval of the course the country is on.It was the only alternative available.It will do no good because,just like the Republicans,the Dems represent the interests of big business/finance that want this war.These people,these CORPORATE DEMOCRATS,serve the interests of big business.Lieberman,Clinton,Pelosi are of the same ilk.They do not,they will not serve the interests of the people,they do not respond to or respect the will of the people.Maybe Obama…maybe Obama…

So it seems that Barack Obama is the new savior of the Democrat party. Maybe Obama indeed…

Only Racists Will vote against him!

And if one were to vote against Hillary, would that make one a misogynist? And if Condileeza Rice and Barack Obama were running against each other, how would an “-ist” be determined based on how one voted?

These questions and more as the DUmpster Turns…
