The last good Republican?

To one Republican voted out this week, I say "goodbye," instead of "good riddance."

In late September, a dozen Senate Democrats (and many House Dems, including holier-than-thou Rep. Harold Ford) gave Bush carte blanche to hold people without due process — and torture them.

Lincoln Chafee was the only Republican senator to vote against the bill, as he was in the vote that authorized the Iraq War. Read more about The last good Republican?

Presidented Bush Looking Forward to Close Relationship With Democratic Majority in Congress

It is hoped Mr. Bush has lots of anti-bacterial gel handy--wouldn't want him to catch Progressive Fever now would we?

With All Due Respect, "Mr. President" (Snicker)

Boobo's last press conference showed that he falls apart quicker than usual when reporters display evidence that they have reproductive organs. Or when they snicker. We've said all along that what would bring the Forces of Evil down in the end is mockery, because their little fantasies blow away like mist in the wind when laughed at. With that in mind, I offer this little metaphor.

Hillary: "It's all about ME!"

What Chris said:

In an incredible wave year, in one of the blueish states in the country [New York], we picked up just three House seats and one state Senate seat. There were three, maybe even four, more seats we could have taken. And we didn't come close to taking the state Senate, which we need to do to be in a position for redistricting in 2010. I'm no Evan Bayh fan, but at least in Indiana we got three seats out of three seats we could have gotten.

More crap from a losing Republican "moderate" Bush enabler

Lincoln Chafee:

"The people have spoken all across America. They want the Democrats and Republicans to work together," Chafee added. "I think the president now is going to have to talk to the Democrats. I think that's going to be good for America."

Defeatism, Cynicism, and Pragmaticism in eVoting

Um, Hoss: Tell that to Jennings.

Democrat Christine Jennings lost to Republican Vern Buchanan by 368 votes, making it the second closest congressional race in the country.

More than 18,000 voters who showed up at the polls voted in other races but not the Buchanan-Jennings race.

CNN: Still Utter Tool of Closeted Republican Fascists

John doesn't need to hits, but still, this one surprised even my cynical ass:

I just got a cease-and-desist letter from YouTube, see below, regarding my CNN footage I posted. The footage, you'll recall, was from Larry King Live last night in which Bill Maher outed Republican Party chair Ken Mehlman as gay. It seems that CNN has suddenly decided that it no longer wants bloggers, or YouTube, posting any of its video, which is kind of surprising since I always thought we were doing a CNN a favor by constantly touting their network. Apparently I was wrong.

Fathers Covering Daughters with Their Godliness

Thread: 

Steve is right. To quote my favorite show, "What other words are there but yuck, gross and unclean?" Given what we know about Foley, Haggard and a host of other disgusting perverts in the Republican party, I'm starting to believe that I should never leave my neice and nephew alone in a room with a Republican ever again. Seriously, what is wrong with these people. "Cover you?" Read more about Fathers Covering Daughters with Their Godliness

You Can Measure My Sympathy with a Scanning/Tunneling Microscope

You know, the kind scientists use to see the smallest particles? I'm betting what's going to happen here in DC is that a whole mess o' young Republican flesh is going to be selling itself on the street, maybe Gannon should open an academy:

The Very Height of Irony

Thread: 

Once again I'm reminded of just how stupid our financial leadership class really is. Laugh along with me:

But according to Craig Focardi, an analyst with TowerGroup, a financial industry consulting firm, federal bankruptcy laws passed last year could also help make it less likely that banks will push for foreclosures when consumers become delinquent with mortgages.

Leaders Wanted

This is a whole new deal. Democrats at the helms of both houses.

What's more, an ample majority in the House means a few outliers won't impede progressive action.

The Senate "majority," though, is a delicate thing. 49-49, with two independents who — we hear — will sit with the donkey caucus. With Dick Cheney waiting in the wings to break ties.

Clearly, the Senate needs bold leadership. As I see it, there is one person there who has stood on the right, and reality-based, side of every important issue. And so I wrote him this note: Read more about Leaders Wanted

The Plan

Thread: 

I just wanted to put it up for all to see. Sure, with signing statements and the Unitary Monarchy, this is going to be an uphill batttle. But in keeping with the idea that we need to be simple and positive, I love the "100 Hours" meme:

I Take it Back, Chris is Right

I was wrong. Now is the time for a little blog triumphalism. I just got this from the Webb campaign:

November 9 Victory Update

As expected, it was extremely close (49.6%-49.3%…a lead of only 7,200 votes), but the hard work of Generation Webb and the rest of our volunteers paid off and we not only won an election for Jim Webb, but we won back the U.S. Senate and have effectively ended the Bush Era in Washington!
