Wow, I sort of agree with Nancy Pelosi...

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday abruptly blocked an effort by Houston Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee to have the House of Representatives pass a resolution honoring pop star Michael Jackson as an international humanitarian.
Pelosi’s reasoning: She didn’t want to open up a congressional debate on the seamier side of the pop icon’s life.

...but then, on the other hand, the longer they debate penny-ante shit like this, the less time they have to wreck the economy any more than they already are with the healthcare and cap-and-tax schemes. Oh well. Every silver lining has its cloud. How about they debate a resolution declaring Sheila Jackson-Lee an embarrassment to the Texas congressional delegation? I bet they could charge for that debate. Yeah, I think it'd be that good. ;-)
