The DCCC called today, and I felt wonderful about the call. Really. Honestly. I enjoyed that call the way I've enjoyed few solici-beggars in life.

You may be asking 'Huh???' You might be thinking, 'I want whatever you were smoking/drinking/inhaling--please pass the laughing gas, we're running out."


What happened was this. The designated beggar from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) gave me the whole, we've turned the Congress around and are doing a great job spiel. "Attorney General Gonzales resigned because of the Congressional investigations."

Okay, that caused a moment of mental whiplash.

I heard, "The DCCC has been hampered by Republican tactics".

More mental whiplash.

"Investigations are continuing and they are effective in changing the course of the nation."

Okay, I was doing the whole Exorcist, how long can your head spin before the pea soup stains the curtains as it flies out of every available orifice, thing. And then, I got clarity.

I got my voice.

I said this.

"The DCCC would have a contribution for me if, and I repeat if and only if, they put impeachment back on the table. "

Solicitous-beggar shot back, "the investigations are proceeding and are effective. After all, Karl Rove and Atty. Gen. Gonzales are go..."

Okay. I was rude. I interrupted.

"No. The DCCC has done nothing to reign in the powers seized by this Executive that have stripped out habeas corpus, who've issued Executive Orders causing our nation to cease functioning as the Republic it was intended to be, and the DCCC has done nothing to stop the aggression of this Executive regarding warmaking. The DCCC hasn't stopped torture, they've not gotten to the bottom of lying us into a way, and they've worked with the Republicans, most recently to rescind the Fourth Amendment. The DCCC have sat on their hands presuming that the People think they can't walk and chew gum at the same time. In Nixon's days, the Congress got a lot done, and they started down the road to impeachment.

And Solici-Beggar wished me a nice day and then she hung up on me.
