GOP Senator Calls for "No Confidence" for Congress

BobGeiger.com commentary:

Those wacky Republican Senators from Oklahoma...

If it's not James "Ice-Age" Inhofe raving like a crazy man on a street corner about climate change being a big liberal hoax, it's his colleague, Dr. Tom Coburn, trying to divert attention from Republican corruption with childish legislative games.

The no-confidence vote on Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, scheduled to take place in the Senate Monday afternoon, is as straightforward as a Congressional resolution can be, simply expressing "...the sense of the Senate that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales no longer holds the confidence of the Senate and of the American people."

This is why I don't like meaningless gestures like a no confidence vote for Gonzo. All it accomplishes is to encourage the other side to make a similar pointless gesture of their own and further deteriorates the already terrible signal to noise ratio in Washington.

John in CA:

I wish CA had at least one Senator like Jim Inhofe or Tom Coburn instead of the two kooks we have. Barbara Boxer is undoubtedly the stupidest member of the Senate. DiFi is just corrupt.
