Over to Heritage

I'm heading over to Heritage to do the 10am panel on the Open House Project.  The streaming video is here.

Lots of fireworks in the House, so use this as a comment thread for either C-Span chatter or mockery of me for being at Heritage.

Lamar Smith's softballs
Lamar Smith (known to us in DC as the guy who tried to sabotage the DC voting rights bill by adding an amendment repealing DC's gun laws) lobbed a bunch of softballs to Gonzales, but Gonzales couldn't even manage those very well. For example, when asked whether the White House had pressured him to fire US attorneys to interfere in ongoing investigations, rather than strongly denying the possibility, he said "Not that I recall." Shouldn't that be something he'd absolutely recall if it happened, or are corrupt orders from the White House just so common that he can't keep track of them all?

Re: Over to Heritage

An afternoon at Heritage, huh?  You are a disgusting, filth-licking, dirt-rolling, porcine turncoat.    How dare you insult liberals by entertaining the thought of consorting with such subhuman blobs of slime.     You are undoubtedly living  a miserable and lonely life.   And I forgot, you're stupid, too.   But you will lose.    And all of us will be celebrating.   I will dance, I will sing.

Conyers said earlier that Gonzales is not under oath. Why on earth are we still having people testify before congressional committees without swearing them in? Shouldn't that just be a standard part of the process rather than something that needs to be decided anew every time?

Lying to Congress

The Busheviks especially should testify under oath. Nevertheless it is a crime to lie to Congress even when not sworn in.

Intellectual property
These Republicans questioning Gonzales are obsessed with intellectual property laws (when they're not obsessed with illegal immigration). Apparently there are networks of people counterfeiting Gucci bags to fund terrorist attacks, so we need to prevent people from using TiVo and listening to music online, or something.
