The best part is the opening: "In a huge embarrassment for Republican leaders..."

The worse they're made to look, the more of a turn-off they'll be to the rational voting world. Their own idiot dingdong clown-car-loving followers - who the hell knows? And who the hell cares?

We can get SOOOOOOOOooooooooo much mileage out of this that can leave the CONS on their asses that hopefully they STAY locked out of the White House next year, AND we at least get the Senate back, too.

But we knew that already.

"Boehner really looks weak on this and he really blew it. He really should be embarrassed. He is not fit to be majority leader of the House. He can't control them."

Once a jerk, always a jerk.

Nicely put, Tommy.

I too believe in redemption and deathbed conversions. But not nearly as often as I should.

One would think we'd see most of that on the knuckle-dragger sites.

But, unfortunately, the relentless critics of our President are here, too.

I try not to generalize. However, uhnope, you put it rather succinctly:

"Some people just don't want any credit to go to Obama for anything."

Just imagine if it had been President romney in the White House while this was going on. What kind of result could we expect in THAT case, 'eh?

Guys, dear treasured cherished DU brothers and sisters - I humbly suggest we ALL try on this filter when discussing lots of different issues, especially as we draw nearer and nearer to primary and general election season.

"WHAT KIND OF RESULT COULD WE EXPECT IF THERE WAS A CON IN THERE, INSTEAD OF (Democratic fill-in-the-blank-here)?"

That he's a moron?

"...the senator with the snowball" (he left off - "for brains").

Come ON, Oklahoma. tom coburn (who Bless Heaven has left office), and james inhofe? SERIOUSLY??????

Dang, I remember those same shows!

And yes, I do believe the original series was on Friday nights.

I can still remember one of the "TV Guide" covers from that era - in which the argument would, today, be termed "Team Kirk vs Team Spock." He was on the cover and the question next to his photo was "Is It Sexy To Be Smart?" The argument outlined in the cover story was about the two conflicting camps of Star Trek fans - those who were hot for Kirk, the brawny swaggering attractive dude who could fist-fight as well as he could love up the ladies, versus the calm, detached, cerebral Spock, presumably unreachable and therefore even more irresistibly attractive. I was on the "Team Spock" side. Brains over brawn, every time.

SHIT - I just realized, I'm leaving people off the list of "Star Trek Lost", shall we say.

Not only Scotty and Bones and Sarek, but Sarek's first wife (and Spock's human mother) Amanda, Christine Chapel, and of course, Gene Roddenberry, who was nicknamed "The Great Bird of the Galaxy." BUMMER. Slowly but surely we're losing them. Glad we still have them on film, videotape, and disc.

Oh man, don't you know it!

Shit - as I'm writing this, I realize I left off Jane Wyatt - Amanda Sarek, Spock's human mother. She's gone, too. "Logic, logic, I'm SICK TO DEATH OF LOGIC!!!!!"

Mine too.



Safe passage, dear sir.
