Heath Shuler named Blue Dog Democrat Of The Week

WASHINGTON - The Democratic Blue Dog Coalition, known for its fiscal conservatism, today named U.S. Rep. Heath Shuler, D-Waynesville, the "Blue Dog of the Week."

Shuler said he's proud to be a member of the Blue Dog caucus."The American people are tired of Congress spending wastefully, borrowing recklessly, and needlessly risking the security of future generations," Shuler said.

Formed in 1995 to represent the center of the House of Representatives, the Blue Dog Coalition currently has 44 members.

Now, I live in Shuler's district, and am really proud of the big lug for beating Charles Taylor(R-Pondscum) but unless my math is fuzzy, there are only 44 members of the coalition. So somebody is going to win this award at least twice this year. I wonder if he gets just this official pronouncement, or if there is a $10 discount coupon to the Red Lobster or some other form of bling.

This is funny

Good one.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Blue Dog of the week...

Is that for his vote against stem cells or his backroom support of investigating waste in Iraq instead of ending the war?

Of course, he has made some good votes, not saying he hasn't. Just giving the newest a hard time.

Where are the candidates?

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.
