Well, it shouldn't be Ridgefield Barbie, and it will never be Tim "The Liar" Leave-it. Who SHOULD be our rep in Congress? Someone like this:

Courage is in short supply in government today. Everyone is afraid to say... and do... what must be said.... and done.

I'm not. I'll always speak out against tyranny. My blogs are dedicated to that task.

But the Camas Manikin is one of those wind-up kind of dolls. I'd be surprised if there wasn't a hole in her back to insert the key and wind her up every morning so she can walk down the hall.

We need vision. We need courage. We need fearlessness and principle. Sadly, we don't have it, for if we did, there is no way.... NO WAY.... that we'd be in this horrific shape.

HERE is the kind of person I want representing us. HERE is the kind of person I want to stand up for what's right, what's just and what's Constitutional: and he's not even American.

• European Parliament, Strasbourg, 16 November 2011

• Speaker: Nigel Farage MEP, UKIP, Co-President of the EFD Group in the European Parliament (Europe of Freedom and Democracy)

• Debate: EU Economic Governance - Statements by the Presidents of the European Council (Herman Van Rompuy), the Commission (José Manuel Barroso) and the Eurogroup (Jean-Claude Juncker) - [2011/2902(RSP)]:

"Here we are on the edge of a financial and social disaster and in the room today we have the four men who are supposed to be responsible. And yet we have listened to the dullest most, technocratic speeches I've ever heard.

You are all in denial. By any objective measure the euro is a failure. And who exactly is responsible, who is in charge out of all you lot? The answer is none of you because none of you have been elected; none of you have any democratic legitimacy for the roles you currently hold within this crisis.

And into this vacuum, albeit reluctantly, has stepped Angela Merkel. And we are now living in a German-dominated Europe - something that the European project was actually supposed to stop. Something that those who went before us actually paid a heavy price in blood to prevent. I don't want to live in a German-dominated Europe and nor do the citizens of Europe.

But you guys have played a role, because when Mr Papandreou got up and used the word 'referendum' - or Mr Rehn, you described it as 'a breach of confidence', and your friends here got together like a pack of hyenas, rounded on Papandreou, had him removed and replaced by a puppet Government. What an absolutely disgusting spectacle that was.

And not satisfied with that, you decided that Berlesconi had to go. So he was removed and replaced by Mr Monti, a former European Commissioner, a fellow architect of this Euro disaster and a man who wasn't even a member of parliament.

It's getting like an Agatha Christie novel, where we're trying to work out who is the next person that's going to be bumped off. The difference is, we know who the villains are. You should all be held accountable for what you've done. You should all be fired.

And I have to say, Mr Van Rompuy. 18 months ago when we first met, I was wrong about you. I said you would be the quiet assassin of nation states' democracy, but not anymore, you are rather noisy about it aren't you. You, an unelected man, went to Italy and said, 'This is not the time for elections but the time for actions'. What in God's name gives you the right to say that to the Italian people.
