House Votes to Hold Miers and Bolten in Contempt; House Repubs Throw Tantrum and Walk Out

From The Gavel: House Approves Contempt Resolutions for Miers and Bolten
Today, the House has just approved H.Res. 982 by a vote of 223-32-1, which provides for the adoption of H.Res. 979, recommending that the House of Representatives find Harriet Miers, former White House Counsel, and Joshua Bolten, the White House Chief of Staff, in contempt of Congress for refusal to comply with subpoenas issued by the Judiciary Committee. These subpoenas were issued as part of the Committee’s investigation into the firings of a number of United States Attorneys and matters concerning the politicization of the Justice Department. This resolution also provides for adoption of H.Res. 980 - Authorizing the Committee on the Judiciary to initiate or intervene in judicial proceedings to enforce certain subpoenas.
But remember, according to the paranoid-lite crowd, Congress doesn't so anything and everyone's OMGZ TEH TRAYTUR because they're not stupid enough to waste time on impeachment votes that will never come to fruition.

And how did the House Republicans react to this? Why, with a good old-fashioned tantrum.
White House spokeswoman Dana Perino called the move "a partisan, futile act" that would not be enforced by the Justice Department.
In other words, Dumbass Dana is saying that the Justice Department doesn't enforce the law, just the will of its masters. Or, to put it bluntly, it's not about justice, it's about abuse.

And the chamber's Republican minority staged a walkout before the vote, demanding that Democratic leaders vote instead on a revision of federal surveillance laws.

"We will not stand here and watch this floor be abused for pure political grandstanding at the expense of our national security," Minority Leader John Boehner said to jeers from Democrats.
Aww, are the whiny-ass titty babies gonna cry 'cuz they aren't forcing the bill to make illegal activities legal for their Father Figure? Well, keep crying, you whiny little bastards, because it's not gonna get any better.
