Darfur and 5 Real Congressmen

The AP is reporting that five U.S. Congressmen were arrested outside the Sudanese embassy in Washington D.C. for protesting the horrible conditions in Darfur. I am proud as all get out to say in fact that they are all DEMOCRATS! Two of the Congressmen are from my home state of Mass-a-two-sticks, Jim McGovern and John Olver. Tom Lantos of CA, Sheila Jackson Lee of TX, and Jim Moran of VA were the other protestors taken away in cuffs. Now that is called standing up for what you believe in! I give them each my support and appreciation for keeping Dafur in the headlines.
Come to think of it, when was the last time a mini publican was arrested for standing up for what they believe in? You can’t count former Congressmen "Duke". Then again maybe you can? He believed he was due the bribes so maybe he had a deep sense of conviction (pun there) on bribery? Did they actually arrest Tom Delay or was that just a drive by booking and photo op? Well I’m sure that there is somebody out there in the mini publican’s that’s been arrested for a noble cause…isn’t there?
