National News Roundup 3/16

From The Washington Post: Republicans want to curb 527 donations but huge soft money corporate donations to their massive leadership PACS are OK. Once again proving it is all about the money. President Bush is redefining his Preemptive Strike campaign so he can include any country capable of actually pronouncing the word n-u-c-l-e-a-r properly as being a viable target. Howie Kurtz pulls his head out of his arse just long enough to convince us he really doesn't get it. Nooooo! Put it baaack, Howie. President Bush won't admit he doesn't understand how to sign people up for his new Medicare plan, so he shuffles the responsibility to their children.

Much more below the fold...

From The New York Times: The NYT still hasn't read the latest Pew Research poll and thinks the call for censure will actually rally the conservative base to protect their majority in the House. Republican Katherine Harris will spend her own money on her Senate campaign since the GOP doesn't even like her enough to back her financially. if you needed it....Further proof that our Congress is fiscally incompetent.

From The Hill: Republicans can't even find their way out of an elevator and we want them to find our way out of Iraq? The blog bill might mean blogger opinion is worth more than it actually is.

From the San Diego Union-Tribune: Editors cut through the crap to get the headline right. The British have no sense of humor and are looking more and more like Republicans every day.

From Newsweek: Bush vs. Insurgents - Now this oughta be good. McCain didn't like the nickname "Maverick", so he's going with "Suck-up". Yet, another Republican crook who didn't do it.

From Time: Here's a first: Bush might add some brain to his "brain trust". Is Hillary too polarizing? Yes, now can we move on?

From BlueNC: Rep. Robin Hayes(R-NC) hangin' out with crooks and liars. Chapel Hill has its own Drinking Liberally chapter and all are welcome. Rep. David Price (D-NC) is still the man for the 4th District.

I'm sorry to be late with this

Last night was a rough one. The dog barked at every noise thinking it was John coming home. Katie called from Camp Don Lee and is having a blast. She said they are cold, learning a lot and all using her cell phone to call home. Um...OK.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Worth the wait . . .

you're getting me in the habit now! Good morning dear.


It is fun...

to put together.

Good morning dear....and no barking today. Of course, the dog is sacked out downstairs. She will get her sleep. I would put her in the room with me, but she snores. And she's LOUD.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Kurtz is a d*ckhead.

But boy oh boy does he like to hear himself talk.

But he does remind me of one thing about most national pundits. In their compulsive obsession with raising their profiles, they always try figure the political calculus. They never consider that something might make sense simply because it is right. They have no sense of integrity.

Feingold's drive to censure Dear Leader is the right thing to do on so many fronts, and frankly, I don't care what the political calculus looks like. Bush broke the law. He should be censured. Then impeached.

I agree wholeheartedly

Now I have to get some writing done on something I'm working on, so ya'll won't hear from me for a few.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.
