Welcome to Washington!

Speier becomes Congress' newest member, is booed by Republicans

Newly elected Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier of Hillsborough was sworn into Congress this morning and delivered a fiery speech criticizing President Bush's Iraq policy that led some Republicans to boo and walk out of the House chamber.

Those congressional Republicans. Their mama's didn't teach them right. Darrell Issa was one of the jerks that walked out in protest. How rude! She just said what The People sent her there to say.

"The process to bring the troops home must begin immediately," Speier told fellow lawmakers including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco. "The president wants to stay the course and a man who wants to replace him suggests we could be in Iraq for 100 years. But Madam Speaker, history will not judge us kindly if we sacrifice four generations of Americans because of the folly of one."

I sure do like California's new congresswoman. She's who I'm talking about when I say we not only need more Democrats, but BETTER Democrats. Congratulations, Congresswoman Speier.
