Rep. Michelle Bachmann’s Apology Fail

After the House failed to override Bush’s veto of the SCHIP children’s health care renewal bill on Thursday, Rep. Pete Stark berated the administration and the bill’s opponents.  In light of their attitude, he questioned whether the nation’s kids would “grow old enough for you to send [them] to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement.”

Networking Sites, Chat Rooms Face Banishment

In an effort to combat sexual predators’ use of social networking websites, the House of Representatives passed a bill that would effectively make sites like Amazon and MySpace inaccessible at public spaces.

    GOP Rep. King Compares Latinos to Drunks

    The anti-immigration congressman made a speech before Congress in May that blasted the idea of providing interpreters for Spanish speakers at polling stations, saying the practice would “coddle” Hispanics, “just like an enabler for an alcoholic, hand them a bottle of booze so they do not cure themselves….”
