Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

05/22/2005: Denny Starts to Strut Some Stuff

Well, here at DHC (Dennis Hastert Corner), everyone know how fond we are of Home-boy Dennis Hastert. But Iíll have to give him some credit where credit is due. If he can bring this Stem Cell Funding bill to the floor for an up or down vote - and pull off a Win for the moderates social conservatives on this issue - that WILL be saying something:

Bush Objects to Stem Cell Bill By Mary Curtius and Peter Wallsten, (LA Times):

"...Tensions within the Republican Party over the Castle bill erupted last week when House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) told his caucus that he intended to make good on a promise to moderates to allow a vote on the measure before June, and that he would probably bring the bill to the floor next week.

Conservatives angrily objected, participants said, arguing that no Republican-controlled Congress should overturn a Republican president's policy on an issue considered fundamental to the party.

"I was disappointed by the decision," said Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.), head of the conservative Republican Policy Committee. "A large number of conservative members were disappointed that this bill was scheduled for a vote."

You go get 'EM Denny!!! And if Bush issues his first veto Ever on this Bill (presuming it would pass with majority support) it will Prove once again just how out of Lock-Step he is with the Nation and off on his own petty, narrow agenda for his "Chosen Few" to obstruct the People's Business and Funding for this important research and potential.

We know what GW thinks of the American people and their "ideas" as expressed in recent polls (doesn't bother him in the least to ignore what Real Americans want on issues), but ought he not follow his own Legislators on issues of legislation which they were elected and were chosen to decide for the rest of us?? Bush claims not to want "activist judges" imposing their own personal views "at will" from the bench - But that's exactly his MO as our Fearless Leader.
