Wed May 16 2007 14:43:59 ET

"After losing a string of embarrassing votes on the House floor because of procedural maneuvering, Der Fuhrer of the House Nancy Pelosi has decided to change the current House Rules to completely shut down the floor to the minority.

"The Democratic Leadership is threatening to change the current House Rules regarding the Republican right to the Motion to Recommit or the test of germaneness on the motion to recommit. This would be the first change to the germaneness rule since 1822.

"In protest, the House Republicans are going to call procedural motions every half hour..."



"Democrats will not change House rules governing the minority's ability to use parliamentary procedure to alter bills, according to House Republicans who fought the effort."

PLUS Chicken Democrauts won't have debates on FOX.

BUT More than 2.5 million people watched Fox News Channel's coverage of the second GOP debate Wednesday night. By comparison, 1.7 million watched MSNBC's GOP debate on May 3rd.
