The Democrats killed 2 loony Republican polices this week.


First, the Bet on Terrorism idea from Rumsfeld and Ponidexter

Secondly, Bush cutting back on Air Marshals when we have intelligence that there could be another terrorist hijacking

Hope the people remember this.

1. No Bush will take the credit
For not putting them into action in the first place. And the media will forget that it was the Dems pushing against that lunacy that prevented it.

3. You're right LoneLib...
People tend to forget things like this. These programs were backed out only after their trial balloon popped when Dems actually said "Wait a minute"....

4. Air Marshals aren't a good solution

I don't think guns in planes is a good idea and I own guns.

The AMs pack very powerful handguns. Can you say holes in cabin?

5. What scares me are the number of people who never heard of these events.
I had dinner with a friend last night and had to patiently explain about the Terra-lert gambling casino. Now, admittedly she is not a news junkie the way I am, but.... Sadly, I feel that there are many others like her out there who will never hear these stories.
