Wisdom from Jiminy Cricket

So yesterday's pseudo-hearing on Capitol Hill was merely a publicity stunt by a few Democrats (see afterdowningstreet.org). Did they fail to generate the media attention that up until now has been sorely lacking? I wait to see if there's any mention in today's local paper. But I'm not getting my hopes up, here in the Speaker's backyard.

It's still really bugging me that only 94 Congressmen/women signed the letter. I mean, they can get half a million signatures from their constitutients, but only 94 out of 435 ... that's 21.6% for the math-challenged, and that's pitiful. Yet another sign that they don't represent the people, even the Democrats are out to cover their own ass at the expense of our servicemen/women. Because they really did know that the invasion had already begun when they finally got around to voting for it.

They're all just a bunch of actors, memorizing their lines and following direction. And as Jiminy Cricket said, "What does an actor need with a conscience?"

We vote, we sign petitions, we blog, and we jump up and down. Gotta believe it is going to work someday. Without hope, what's left?
