House offices searched after gunfire report

CNN Police were searching the Rayburn building in the Capitol complex Friday after reports of gunfire in a garage in the building.

Someone was obviously confused. It was the Senate that passed S.2611 Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006. Also regardless of how tempting it might be to want to shoot a few Senators, I believe the proper thing is to just make sure that House blocks the stupid things they passed, and politically go after the Senators, at least those in Class I (i.e. are up for election this year) that voted for S 2611, i.e. Democrats Daniel Akaka, Jeff Bingaman, Maria Cantwell, Thomas Carper, Hillary Clinton, Kent Conrad, Mark Dayton, Dianne Feinstein, Edward Kennedy, Herb Kohl, Joseph Lieberman, Robert Menendez, Ben Nelson, Bill Nelson, and Paul Sarbanes, Republicans Lincoln Chafee, Mike DeWine, Bill Frist, Richard Lugar, and Olympia Snowe, and Independent James Jeffords. Normally I would urge going after Robery Byrd and Debbie Stabenow, who are up for election this term, but they did vote Nay on S.2611. He is not up for election this time, but we need to pull Specter's chairmanship.
"At 10:30 this morning, we received a report of shots fired inside the Rayburn garage," Sgt. Kimberly Schneider, a public information officer for the Capitol Police, said.
