Nancy Pelosi, earlier today:
“I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day,” Pelosi said to laughter, during a sit-down with reporters. “I’m not kidding. There’s a prison here in the Capitol … If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him.”
Jesus F. Christ, woman. Why the hell didn’t you? Why the hell didn’t you impeach Bush and Cheney when you had the chance, too?
When Democrats have power, they refuse to use it when it’s warranted. When Republicans have power, they abuse it to score political points. If Clinton could be impeached over a blow job surely Bush and Cheney could have been impeached over the Iraq War.
This has got to change, Democrats. How’s the playing nicey working for ya? In case you haven’t noticed, Republicans don’t play nicey back. They go for the jugular.
Might want to try it next time you have the gavel — assuming that day is ever allowed to happen.
