I'm not going to dig any further into this bill after seeing the vote tally.

Voted down by a good margin, overwhelmingly by Democrats. Many yucky Rs and 4 Ds voting for it. The only ones who missed the vote are currently running for President.

In other words, the Ds seem to disagree with you about getting it to the floor, for whatever reason, and I'm quite sure Bernie made the correct judgment that it was a vote where his presence would not alter the outcome.

Did you think no one would check the link?

Clinton campaign bragging

On working with Tom DeLay on foster care??

Source: Joel Beneson, MSNBC, 10:15 Central.

Oh yeah??? Great ally....

ETA: Given that you can't mention every person you've worked with, this is not one I'd pick to brag on. Not saying she's associated with this, just giving an example of why I wouldn't mention that slimeball's name as a bragging point.

Thank You, Bev Carter

This is a story I have been trying to get the media interested in for a solid year.

Tom DeLay’s home for foster children was a ruse to paint him as a nice guy before his trial. People fell for it and money was wasted like buying pearls for a pig.

Of the 8 houses built, seven stand empty, rotting in the Texas sun for two years. And apparently Tom likes it that way.


Bernie is "too much of a bite, ideologically"????

(Chris Matthews, MSNBC, 11:28 Central.)

Are you kidding? If it's "too much of a bite," how did he get where he is from basically nothing?

(Not monitoring, going to bed, night.)


Uh, Andrea (note, no "Mrs. Greenspan" - who is this "they" of which you speak? It took me four or five sentences to figure it out.

Oho - so the Clinton campaign (not Hillary herself) did kinda, sorta declare victory, and we go from that to "sigh of relief"?

I'd find it amusing, if the fate of the world didn't hang in the balance.

Yeah, I didn't provide a link, but I hope I've provided a coherent description. Network, MSNBC. Time, 11:10 or so Central.

"Sigh of relief"???

Oh dearie dear.... A sigh of relief that it was virtually a dead heat....? Uh, I'm no politician, but I don't think I would have put it that way....

Just leaving this here, as I have to go to bed now.

Reach out in the darkness.


This is Bernie to me.

Wasn't sure where to put it, figured I had less chance of getting in trouble here.

BTW, I think Neil Simon is this century's Shakespeare.


Wow in Texas re Bernie.

I'm going to phone bank tomorrow at a home in the large, affluent retirement community across the highway.

I remarked to the host that she must, as a Democrat, feel kinda lonely there, as I had heard horror stories from Democrats who had canvassed door-to-door there.

She said all but one of her immediate neighbors were for Bernie.

I don't remember the exact point,

But I know that corporations need to be muzzled and leashed.

That's the exact reason

I made my first-ever pre-general campaign contribution.

To Obama.
