Bashing Pelosi at CPAC – Literally

Oh those wild and crazy conservatives:

Attendees at a conservative conference in town [D.C.] this week will have the opportunity to whack a pinata of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Conservative Political Action Conference “CPAC” begins Thursday here in D.C. and will feature a party Friday evening where guests will have the opportunity to whack a Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) piñata.

On the other hand, Harry Reid will be there in punching bag form. Is there some gender discrimination going on there? Why aren’t they both piñatas – or punching bags?

Republicans to check in with and why:

Maine’s US Senator Susan Collins and Idaho Republican Mike Crapo – who co-sponsored Amy Klobuchar’s S. Res. 327, an Oct. 2009 resolution supporting the goals and ideals of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2009. did as well. It passed by unanimous consent.

The House version, H. Res. 817, authored by Al Green (D-TX9), was co-sponsored by Judy Biggert (R-IL13), Dan Burton (R-IN5), Shelly Capito (R-WV2), Michael Conaway (R-TX11), Erik Paulson (R-MN3), Ted Poe (R-TX2), Bill Posey (R-FL15) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL18). It passed by unanimous consent. Burton and Poe also co-sponsored H.R. 840 Military Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Act that was introduced on February 3, 2009.

Crapo sponsored, and Louisiana’s U.S. Senator who is up for re-election, David Vitter co-sponsored, S. Res. 391 A resolution recognizing the 25th anniversary of the enactment of the Victims of Crime Act of 1984. It passed by unanimous consent on January 21.

Just some wild and crazy guys.  Or not.
