House Republicans Grow a Part of the Anatomy

Now this is what we need to see more of from the national Republican Party!

WorldNetDaily reports U.S. House Republicans, frustrated at Speaker Nancy Pelosi's refusal to bring oil drilling legislation to a vote, are continuing to discuss congressional energy policy (or lack thereof) and are having some fun at it:

Pretending to be a Democrat, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., stood on the other side of the chamber and listed all of the Republican bills killed by Democrats, Politico reported.

"I am a Democrat and here is my energy plan," he said, holding up a picture of an old VW Bug with a sail attached to it.

Nunes paraded the picture around the House floor to the cheers of the gallery crowd.

No wonder House Republicans are upset; Democrats apparently don't care how much Americans have to pay for gas.

From Fox News:
"I just saw one of the Democrats interviewed on television. The question was, if oil was $10 a gallon and you knew exactly where to get it in Alaska or on the coast, would you drill there, and there was no answer," House Minority Whip Roy Blunt, of Missouri, said before a last-minute gathering before reporters late Friday.

In what might be a modern twist on Marie Antoinette's "Let them eat cake," Democrats seem to be saying, "Let them ride their bicycles."

Democrats are also doing their best to run off reporters and get Capitol Police to do their bidding, but word is still getting out.

But The Politico is still around taking note of what's going on:

Politico described the scene on the floor as "kind of crazy," noting members normally are not allowed to speak directly to the visitor gallery, and cheering from the gallery is not allowed.

But House members have been walking up and down the floor to loud cheers, including standing ovations.

Rep. Don Manzullo, R-Ill., brought the crowd to its feet with a rousing speech that accused Democrats of stifling dissent, referencing President John Quincy Adams, who returned as a House member after his term in the White House.

I love it!

They're fighting for good policy...and having a blast while doing it!

Could this be the start of something great? Congressional Republicans with guts and gusto?
