Things That Make My Head Explode: Chris Dodd [Updated Below]

25 June 2010 @ 09:13

Doing his best Nancy Pelosi, Chris ‘Waitress Sandwich’ Dodd, Senator from Connecticut [D-Countrywide], shows an arrogance worthy of Lord Townsend.  From The Washington Post, Brady Dennis reporting, we learn [tip of the fedora to Drudge][emphasis mine]: 

Key House and Senate lawmakers agreed on far-reaching new financial rules early Friday after weeks of division, delay and frantic last-minute deal making. The dawn compromise set up a potential vote in both houses of Congress next week that could send the landmark legislation to President Obama by July 4. 

Lawmakers pulled an all-nighter, wrapping up their work at 5:39 a.m. — more than 20 messy, mind-numbing, exhaustive hours after they began Thursday morning. 

“It’s a great moment. I’m proud to have been here,” said a teary-eyed Sen. Christopher J. Dodd (D-Conn.), who as chairman of the Senate Banking Committee led the effort in the Senate. “No one will know until this is actually in place how it works. But we believe we’ve done something that has been needed for a long time. It took a crisis to bring us to the point where we could actually get this job done.” 

Both the House and Senate must approve the compromise legislation before it can go to Obama for his signature. 

Despite myriad changes in recent days, Democrats appear poised to deliver a final bill that largely reflects the administration’s original blueprint unveiled almost precisely a year ago. While it would not fundamentally alter the shape of Wall Street or break up the nation’s largest firms, the legislation would establish broad new oversight of the financial system. 

‘No one will know…how it works’ until you pass the friggin’ law!!!!!!!! 


Goddamn Fascist…Goddamn arrogant son of a… 



I feel a lot better now.

 FOXY NEWS ALERT: We interrupt this explosion to take you just outside the Oval Office… 


BARNEY: ‘It’s not so bad once you learn that
he likes it when you take out your teeth.’
CHRIS: ‘You’re lucky…I keep telling Rahm
I’m too old to bend over the Resolute Desk,
but he doesn’t care.’

UPDATE at 1939…

Over at Gateway Pundit, Jim Hoft has the video of Nancy Pompey Pelosi making her statement and the vote counts.
