I know I've been AWOL, but I'm trying. I've been taking my short, writing breaks to peruse what others are posting. Here are some things I've found.
Binker on Perdue's C.V., wait, why would she be running away from being a teacher?
What does it take to be bike friendly, an Orange Politics reader wants to know.
Dr. Frank posts a story about Republicans denying U.S. troops benefits because they were deployed for 729 days, not 730.
Are you using Google Calendar? You should be. I am.
Paul Krugman's blog, why not single payer?
Ezra on the lies Republicans tell about Socialized Medicine and the media who spread them.
Bush's policies give us back the evangelical vote, well, almost.
Pastordan on Fox News, Pelosi, and Praying to win.
This is possibly the stupidest question ever asked of Nancy Pelosi. Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday:
Wallace: You said the other day that you pray for President Bush to change his mind about vetoing SCHIP…Ahhh, do you pray for our soldiers to win in Iraq?
Pelosi: Of, course I do.
Wallace: To win?
Pelosi: Of, course. What a question….
Oh. Your. God. *
I don't know a responsible pastor out there who would endorse prayers for military victory. Safe return of the troops, sure. "To win," no. See Twain's War Prayer for why not.
John Amato says Pelosi should have added "...jackass." Personally, I would have added: "who do you pray to, anyway? Mars?"
What a question indeed.
