Firebrand Steve Stockman


 Firebrand Rep. Steve Stockman filed a motion Thursday directing congressional police to arrest ex-IRS official Lois Lerner for contempt of Congress and take her to the D.C. jail for questioning.

The Texas Republican filed a resolution that would instruct Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to issue a warrant for Lerner’s arrest, commanding the Sergeant-at-Arms “to arrest and take into custody forthwith, wherever to be found, the body of Lois G. Lerner, and bring her to the bar of the House without delay to answer to the charge of contempt of its authority, breach of its privileges, and gross and wanton insult to the integrity of its proceedings.”

Firebrand?  Indeed.

I stand before God and my countryman,  and ask,  why isn't Lerner already facing a Grand Jury?  And Lois Lerner is not the only person in this administration who deserves demands similar treatment.

I admire Stockman's tolerance. I'd have instructed the Sergeant-In-Arms to shoot her in the leg and drag her to the nearest jail.

OK. Let's assume that Stockman actually gets this resolution passed. Dirty Harry Reid will pontificate endlessly (amybe even filibuster), Speaker Boehner very likely will not do a goddam thing about it, Shyster General Holder won't prosecute her (that is a given), and The Ayatollah Obama will give her a Presidential Pardon, thereby negating all this effort on Stockman's part. Plus, The Ayatollah will promote her the run the IRS, as well as throw her a State dinner, inviting all his adoring, sycophantic Hollywood buddy-pals (read "mega-donors).

Dingy Harry can't do anything to stop this.
Contempt of the House is not contempt of Congress !

Anon 11:53: Of course Dirty Harry and the Senate can't do anything to stop this. But that won't stop him from pontificating ednlessly about it. There is just one thing that will stop him from pontificating ad infinitum, ad nauseum. That would be his not entirely unwelcome demise.

I'd welcome the change from Dirty Harry's diatribes on the evil Koch brothers.

Damned if Reid isn't turning into an old, ugly Emily Litella in drag.
