Rep. Christopher Shays has confrontation with Capitol Hill police officer

Posted by: ST on July 20, 2007 at 11:01 pm » 4 Comments

I’m back a little early – couldn’t resist blogging about this one. No doubt the left will be all over this soon enough: On Thursday afternoon, Rep. Christopher Shays (R-Conn.) got into a loud, angry dispute with a U.S. Capitol Police officer at the security checkpoint inside the entrance of the West Side of the […]

 

Thanks For Having Me!

Well, I’m assuming that ST will be back soon. She told me this gig was until around 4 pm, so I’m going to log off and get ready to head home from work. I leave you with this clip from one of the funniest movies ever made…and this is, in my opinion, the best scene […]

 

Kos And Jet Blue: On Again, Off Again

Posted by: Brian on July 20, 2007 at 5:16 pm » 3 Comments

By now, you’ve surely read that Bill O’Reilly laid into Jet Blue for sponsoring the Daily Kos’ nutroots convention in Chicago. Kos crowed over at his site earlier that “Jet Blue isn’t going anywhere”, that they assured him they would continue to sponsor it, blah, blah, blah. Now, instead of crowing, he’s eating crow. Jet […]

 

Cue The Late Night Jokes

Posted by: Brian on July 20, 2007 at 2:26 pm » 2 Comments

Man, I can only imagine what the late night shows will be doing with this: President Bush will undergo a routine colonoscopy Saturday, and will transfer power to Vice President Dick Cheney during the procedure, expected to take about two and a half hours, the chief White House spokesman said. Tony Snow said Friday that […]

 

Op-Ed: Edwards Got Rich By Hurting The Poor

Posted by: Brian on July 20, 2007 at 12:43 pm » 8 Comments

Ouch: What made Edwards such a brilliant attorney – and a pretty good politician – is his ability to look you in the eye while picking your pocket and convince you that’s really not his hand on your wallet. And so he stopped in the hinterlands of Wise, Va., to commiserate with the poor there […]

 

Ted Kennedy On The Floor Of The Senate

Posted by: Brian on July 20, 2007 at 10:27 am » 5 Comments

Not literally, mind you…although, given his past history, it wouldn’t surprise me. =) No, this is a speech (or rant, if you will) he gave to the Senate: Whoa…check out that red face. It looks like he’s about to have a stroke or something. lol Seriously, though, it’s just the height of all hypocrisy that […]

 

What’s A Few Hundred Thousand Lives To A Democrat?

Posted by: Brian on July 20, 2007 at 9:55 am » 13 Comments

John Kerry was on C-Span yesterday and laid this line of horse-hooey on viewers: Sen. John Kerry said during a C-SPAN appearance that fears of a bloodbath after the US withdrawal from Vietnam never materialized. He says he’s met survivors of the “reeducation camps” who are thriving in modern Vietnam. An award-winning investigation by the […]

 

Republican Governor Vetoes Bill To Provide Fertility Treatments To Unmarried Couples

Posted by: Brian on July 20, 2007 at 8:40 am » 9 Comments

Boy, I’ll just bet the left will be howling mad over this one: Rhode Island Gov. Don Carcieri has vetoed a bill requiring health insurers to cover infertility treatments for unmarried people, saying they shouldn’t be forced to subsidize out-of-wedlock births. The Republican governor, who opposes same-sex marriage and civil unions, warned that eliminating the […]

 

Ah, We Meet Again!

Posted by: Brian on July 20, 2007 at 8:35 am » 6 Comments

What was it Darth Vader said to Obi-Wan Kenobi in the original Star Wars? “We meet again at last…something-something-something…circle is now complete…something-something-something…darkside.” Or am I remembering a Family Guy episode? Meh, whatever. My POINT is (and yes, I do have one!), is that I’m back for a little bit to brighten y’alls day (a little […]

 

Friday open thread and announcement

Posted by: ST on July 20, 2007 at 12:15 am » 7 Comments

Hi all, I just got done putting together a piece of furniture and am exhausted. Now I know the reason why it doesn’t hurt to spend the extra money it takes to buy something already put together! I have a dr. appointment today that is going to put me out of commission for a good […]
