Wow, Clyburn's going into the back of the bus again. Good job, Democrats. Keep up black folks down. We'll remember in 2012.

My left-wing progressive Comrades have arrived at a wonderful solution for our African American Comrade Clyburn, which appeases him and gives him a warm-fuzzy, yet keeps Comrades Pelosi and Hoyer in the real leadership positions.

I'm always uncomfortable with precarious situations like this, where my Comrades of all races run the risk of being flushed out of the pocket and are forced to scramble like water bugs so that they aren't exposed as the racist limousine liberal elitist egalitarian Comrades that they are. After all, the rubber really hits the road when it comes to a Comrade relinquishing one’s power and handing the baton to the type of person that they claim they’ve been trying to empower for the past 50+ years – they simply cannot allow themselves to do it.

A tip of my Cossack hat to Comrades Pelosi and Hoyer for creating a sister-kisser position for Comrade Clyburn that will give the appearance of lifting him up, but at the end of the day denies him the power that they could have granted him.

If you want something serious to consider,given the sorry state of our "Representative"(Hah -Hah-Puke)government;consider the apparent desire and intent of Democrap insiders to throw yet another election.
Do they know that something is coming that the rest of us only experience in nightmares or Road Warrior movies?

Pelosi should have stepped aside if not resigned from the Congress. On the other hand, no better way to insure an even larger Republican House majority in 2012. What a loser.

Hardly anybody has heard of them prior to '06.
How did a lying 2 faced Billionaire San Fran plastic surgery bug eyed FREAK,a whiney stoop shouldered ineffectual Tower of Jell-O and Space Ghost The Mystery Representative
get the positions they now hold?
Really, it's sick making.
