Senate to discreetly shut down House AIG bill of attainder.
They may call it “delay,” but they mean “eliminate” – and the Washington Post is happy to assist with putting this story on the seventh page. Senate Will Delay Action on Punitive Tax on Bonuses Jarred by a cool reception from the White House and fears of unintended consequences across the financial world, Senate leaders are likely to delay until late next month legislation to | Read More »
Good job getting Sen. Corker mad there, Sen. Nelson.
In response to this story about how supposedly Senator Nelson of Nebraska had called in Senator Corker of Tennessee to try to get a “bipartisan solution” (read: “Republican cover”) for the Democrats’ debt bill, Sen. Corker’s office contacted Instapundit with the following: UPDATE: A Corker spokesperson emails: “As I’ve told Fox, we were invited late yesterday to a meeting in Sen. Ben Nelson’s office and | Read More »
Yes, Mr. President. You won. How’s your debt bill coming along?
I would like to thank both the President of the United States of America, and the liberal Democratic group Americans United for Change, for their plans to remind three critical swing states that the Democratic Party is pushing a debt package that only 42% – and dropping – of the country believes in, and that a majority of independent voters oppose. But there’s something even | Read More »
Pelosi and Obama’s Dem Party see humans as the enemy
If only there were less humans, Utopia would appear. Originally published by Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report First, it was purges of the masses who wouldn’t cooperate by Lenin, Stalin and Mao. The Berlin Wall fell and ended that illusion. Then it was the 60s and 70s population explosion threat. Population increased exponentially as Reagan-Thatcher conservative prosperity and Clinton globalism reduced poverty | Read More »
This Hill story’s getting hit by Drudge… [Bumped and updated.]
[Update: Video added, and the Hill's Blog Briefing Room is back up, so I'm cutting back the article.] …and, given the general meltdown of the Internet, it’s currently down. Via comments here: January 20, 2009 Bush Mocked As He Arrives on Inauguration Dais @ 11:52 am by Hill Staff
Blagojevich looks around at the pools of gasoline, giggles, and ignites the magnesium flare.
And will he hit the bottom? Sure. Single-digit approval ratings and the instinctive public shunning by the national Democratic Party leadership is fairly diagnostic – hey, I’m not going to be on his jury; no harm in me saying what we all know already. Blago’s dirty, he’s finally gotten caught on something that we can hammer him for, and he’s going to get hammered. But | Read More »

Has the world changed?
After 12 years of nearly complete control of Florida politics, Republicans lost the state to Obama. But, although Obama won Florida, the Democrats didn’t. While Obama was carrying Florida by over 3%, Democrats were picking up only one seat in both houses of the Legislature, which remain overwhelmingly Republican.
Why I stay in the Democratic Party
Why does a conservative stay in the Democratic Party? Because Republicans can’t decide whether Stevens should be kicked out. http://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation/story/773542.html Because Republicans steal (I’m sorry, misappropriate) campaign funds. http://www.miamiherald.com/news/southflorida/story/773519.html And, because they just don’t get it.
Is there any space for conservative Democrats?
I’m a conservative Democrat, a former elected official and a current elected county (Democratic) party official. I could not get behind Obama, so I followed the advice of Old Thom Paine (“Lead, follow, or get out of the way.”) From convention to election, I got out of the way. I stepped back from my party and the so called ‘progressive’ blogs. Now that the election | Read More »
This is the saddest thing that I read today.
OK. I need you folks to do something for me. First off, I need you to trust me. Second, I need you to center yourselves, get your mental equilibrium level, balance your chi, let the Love that surpasseth all understanding fill your heart… all of you have some reliable way to find inner peace, so at least make an effort to get there. Got it? | Read More »
The New York Times spanks Chris Dodd for stonewalling.
I give them ten out of ten for yelling at him over this… Senator Dodd’s Notion of Courtesy After reports emerged in June about him having received favorable treatment on two home mortgages from the Countrywide Financial Corporation, Senator Christopher Dodd, a Democrat from Connecticut, promised that he would release documents to support his contention that he never benefited financially from the terms of the | Read More »
200,000 questionable ballots in Ohio.
All of this H/T AoSHQ, by the way. Anyway, in reverse order: Michelle Malkin has the details about the Vote from Home idiots, a bunch of whom took the time to get absentee ballots that they didn’t have a right to have while engaging in voter registration fraud in Ohio. Yes, I think that being caught committing actual voter fraud pretty much eliminates any hope | Read More »
I say that Rahm Emanuel (D, IL-5) is lying about his prior knowledge of Tim Mahoney’s (D, FL-16) crime.
I’m sorry, but I’m not a Democrat: the mushroom treatment doesn’t work on me. So when a Democratic politician attempts to lie his way out of trouble, I get peeved. Let’s walk through this. Gateway Pundit reported last month that Tim Mahoney (D, FL-16) was involved in a sex scandal in which he paid off a former mistress, allegedly using campaign funds. That is, by | Read More »
Missouri on the ACORN Case.
Here we go again: Missouri officials suspect fake voter registration KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Officials in Missouri, a hard-fought jewel in the presidential race, are sifting through possibly hundreds of questionable or duplicate voter-registration forms submitted by an advocacy group that has been accused of election fraud in other states.
