"stop looking for middle ground and start looking for higher ground"
No one says it quite like Helen:


Margaret, you tell Howard that Ill close up shop when he stops watching FOX. I may be old, but I am not dead and this sure as hell isnt my first time to the rodeo. My voice just got louder and my fat ass isnt going anywhere until Jesus calls me home.

The thing about politics, Margaret, is that these days there really is no middle ground. Not a single candidate won their seat with a mandate. Show me a candidate who took 100% of the votes and Ill show you a candidate with a mandate. For example, even Mr. Coons up there in Delaware represents 40% of voters who preferred a witch. And Governor Perry down here in my state is still the Governor for over 2 million Texans who voted for the other guy. Which one do you think is looking for middle ground today?

Senator Coons told people, Im honored and humbled by the confidence expressed by the voters of Delaware today, but now the hard work begins. Ive said all along that this campaign is about Delawares families and the challenges they face.

About that same time Perry was telling reporters, When the outcomes of this election are certified, we will see a substantial conservative presence in both the Texas House and Senate. We are one day closer to seeing the changes we want in Washington.  He then set out to do the hard work Texans elected him to do sell his book. By the way, in his book he writes, If you dont support the death penalty and citizens packing a pistol, dont come to Texas. If you dont like medicinal marijuana and gay marriage, dont move to California.

Now thats bringing the country together http://margaretandhelen.wordpress.com/

1. A clear case of swamp full of alligators
and nobody wants to rassle the alligators NOR drain the swamp. They just want to sell off the hides and anything else that isn't likely to eat them first.
