Civility is so sexy

People always need a good laugh on Monday morning, so here's one from C-SPAN 2:
Civility and American Politics, Part 2
University of Pennsylvania
American Enterprise Institute
Brookings Institution
Washington, District of Columbia (United States)
ID: 197868 - 2 - 04/30/2007 - 1:15 - No Sale

Boehner, John A. U.S. Representative, R-OH
Gutmann, Amy President, University of Pennsylvania
Lieberman, Joseph U.S. Senator, I, Connecticut

House Minority Leader Boehner and Senator Lieberman talked about options for restoring civility to American politics. They responded to questions from members of the audience.

This panel, "Fundamental Questions on Civility and American Politics," of the Civility and American Politics program was held in the Hart Senate Office Building, Room 902.
Because the dirty hippies won't be nice about death, destruction, corruption and lies, official Washington must have these forums. Anyone who disagrees with Holy Joe and John is being uncivil, and must have their motives examined.

But to quote St. Rudy, if you vote for terrorists Democrats will win. Or something.

Next on C-SPAN, we took our camera to the alleged D.C. madam's bordello for a look at the coin operated beds, which also double as vote counting machines. The Speaker will lock the voting machines, the Speaker is locking the vote counting machines....oh baby oh baby give me some more civility, right there baby! Joe! John! Oh! I - LOVE -- civility! Yeaaaaaaa!

MORE--Think Progress has some fun quotes:

Critics of Bush’s Iraq war strategy are engaging “in a kind of harassment.” [4/12/07]

Ned Lamont’s primary win “will be taken as a tremendous victory by the same people who wanted to blow up these planes in this plot hatched in England.” [8/10/06]


[The war critics’ plan] provides a road map for terrorists. … It is a danger to both our troops engaged in combat and to the long-term security interests of American families. [3/22/07]

Unfortunately, the Democrats latest plan is an old twist on an old adage: failure at any cost. … Democrats are using the critical troop funding bill to micromanage the war on terror — undermining our generals on the ground and slowly choking off resources for our troops. [3/8/07]

People who oppose escalation are taking the “bait” of “al Qaeda and terrorist sympathizers” by using Iraq to “divide us here at home.” [2/13/07]
Give it to me, baby (uh uh uh uh.) Pretty fly, Joe.
