I have two items of good news to discuss. First, Walt Minnick voted with congressional Democrats to block an investigation into Nancy Pelosi regarding what she was told by the CIA about torture. It's good that the silly distraction was voted down, and it's good that Walt voted with the Democrats on the issue.
I suppose that Peolsi and House leadership are pretty tolerant of Democratic House members from tough districts, like Walt, but voting to investigate the Speaker would probably be going too far.
Two, Bryan Fischer is moving away, and the IVA is going into "whisper mode." I didn't particularly mind the guy, though he said some offensive stuff from time to time, and he can care all he wants to about issues near and dear to him. The reason I'm glad he's moving away is that our local media overplayed him, which gave him too loud a voice in the public debate.
I wonder who, if anyone, will step up and start flogging the various wingnut issues that Fischer liked to pursue. It will be interesting to see if the media pick a new guy to prop up as the go to guy for winger issues, or if someone will assume that role intentionally.
