I'll be sad to see good ol' Terry go since he's been so good for the GOP, however my ultra liberal neighbors are aghast that Howie is taking over their party so perhaps there is more fun still to come :-)

We need to section this out a little bit.

"Millicrats" >> real conservative dems

"Hillicrats" >> chameleons (have you checked the wind direction today?)

"Deaniacs" >> "The rest of 'um"

Uh-Oh They are praying when I am sure 75% of the people there are Athiest. Why don't they complain that the DNC is pushing God on them.

The message today seems to be that everything democrat is now the Greatest, the best, the most. I never heard of this Rep. Norton and Terry says she's the GREATEST to EVER walk the halls of Congress.

Eleanor Holmes Norton is simply awful. Take a look at the crime rate and the school record in her "district." She's on to her usual complaint that DC reps can't actually vote. Apparantly they are having the same difficulty they had last night keeping the natives quiet.

Is Eleanor speaking slowly so they can all understand her? And why is she yelling?

I am really glad we aren't doing a drinking game with the word "greatest" today. I would already be toast.

Is anyone else tired of all the media blitz about Howard Dean?
Has any Republican chair recieved so much media attention? I don't think so.

("Tribute to Chairman Terry McAuliffe" at Washington's National Building Museum Thursday night)


... As McAuliffe spoke, Clinton and Kerry began an animated conversation onstage. Members of the audience, too, renewed their loud conversations with one another. And many of them began to leave.

LMAO!
