OK, I've heard about JBR, Owen, and Prior and sacrificing Saad and Meyer, but what about Cavanaugh and the other one?

Reid was acting in bad faith at the announcement of the so-called deal, using the opportunity of an open mike to bad-mouth Republicans, and the Administration, even as he was supposedly shaking hands with them.

Spiteful and vindictive -- he is simply a snake.

Goooood Morning, xs and crew,

Well, this looks like an easy one today, plenty of material to work with, and plenty of ire and inner seething to drive the use of said word LOL...

In the Senate, irresolute
Thinking only of Pork and Loot
Who could have ever once discerned
This the way the irresolute worm would turn
All that rhetoric to no good
It seems their heads were made of wood.

Led by none other than "Our Man? Arlene"
His irresoluteness plainly seen
No seer needed to make them learn
Then shouted "Compromise", "Adjourn"

What a Country ?!?!?!

Greg

Thank you, but I don't have any money.:^)

And allow me to add this: it appears Paris "I'm an enormous slut" Hilton has a hamburger commercial and is on top of the world. It seems that sort of behaviour pays off, vide Lewinsky and Pamela Anderson. This being the case, it is beyond my ability to comprehend why the Whyisa isn't Queen of Entertainment for the whole U. S. of A. Patently there is some manner of dreadful discrimination against Texans going on amongst the turkeys who decide these things, or else they're just irresolute, and Whysa, I'd just like to say that considering your relentless efforts, it's a crying shame.

An oldish joke:

A beautiful young redheaded woman goes into the doctor's office and says that her body hurts wherever she touches it. "Impossible!" says the doctor. "Show me." The redhead takes her finger, pushes on the left side of her chest and screams, then she touches her elbow and screams in even more agony. She pushes her knee and screams; likewise she touches her ankle and screams. Everywhere she touches makes her scream. The doctor says, "You're not really a redhead, are you?" "Well, no" she says, "I'm actually a blonde." "I thought so," the doctor says. "Your finger is broken."

Yes, for those late night moments when he closes his eyes, and imagines he's Cindy McCain.

I miss a few days of FreeRepublic and the senate goes to hell in a hand basket.

I was going to use the WFTD, but then I changed my mind. I am using yesterdays word instead.

Can still be respected.
But an alcoholic derigible?

Deads folks all over the joint.

Now that they "solved" it, here's my solution to the filibuster stuff: pass a rule against the filibuster. Then pass your judges. Then pass a rule re-establishing filibusters.

Then everybody's happy except some dems and who gives a crap aboot those guys?

Gummint criminals trying not to be as criminal as usual.

I love this line:

"I tried to make it illegal to drink Budweiser," while keeping locally brewed Miller products free of fines, Murphy joked.

Good day, xsmommy:

Though I do feel irresolute.
I honestly have no desire to beat or shoot.
The traitors who yesterday gave the Libs a win.

It seems to be SOP for the GOP.
To cave when victory is solidly in their grasp.
They've done it for so long they don't think it a grievous sin.

Though it is cathartic to bash.
The majority party riven with asps.
I wonder how well they'll fare without my cash?

Everyone else seems rather vituperative today, xsmommy.

There always seems to be a few brainless backstabbers within the GOP. Handing out embarrasing victories to the Jackasses since the days of JKF and LBJ.

I'm not about to change parties. Just close my check book until someone gets the message.

Jack.
