House Republicans [aka Little Ann Coulter's in Training] Attacked by Republicans for Childish Slams Against Nancy Pelosi

Certain Republicans in the House find it necessary to waste the taxpayer's time and money by exaggerating and misdirecting discussions regarding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's security mandated travel arrangements.

Interestingly enough, even other Republicans think this maneuver is stupid:

The White House weighed in, as well. “This is a silly story,” its spokesman, Tony Snow, said.  Mr. Snow said that the Republican criticism was unfair and that the Bush administration essentially sided with Ms. Pelosi...

“This is a bunch of baloney,” said Representative Ray LaHood, Republican of Illinois, who said he had flown on Mr. Hastert’s military plane.  “Next week,” Representative Jeff Flake, Republican of Arizona, said, “we are going to steal their mascot and short-sheet their beds.”

For a party in disarray, as are the Republicans, this is a bizarre turn of events.  I guess some of these guys still think it's a couple of years back and everyone is hanging on their every stupid slam like they're Ann Coulter's in training, though absent her slutty attractiveness.

Considering that the Republicans in power have betrayed States' rights and fiscal conservatism, in addition to lying about WMD's and taking us into a war that's killed huge numbers and weakened our military defenses, you'd think they'd get their act together and actually attempt to appear to be living the values in which they claim to believe.

But I guess they're no longer even capable of putting up a decent front.
