I assume he means "unite the Libs" because all of his favorites have p--ssed off the rest of us. He looks like the "Ancient Mariner" and rather disheveled lately like Kennedy. I do not know why Russert and Co always want to talk to someone who is so incoherent.
Andrea Mitchell makes me miss Tim Russert. What a blatant liberal hack! She prefaces a question about interest groups already gearing up, and you assume for sure she'd talk about the left-wing groups and their mouthpiece, Ted Kennedy. Instead, the only reference she makes is to a conservative group, and holds up today's NY Times, echoing its point about such groups gearing up to support a conservative nominee and opposing Gonzales.
Then she virtually pleads with Leahy to support a filibuster should W nominate "a hard-liner," meaning presumably someone who supports the original intent of the Framers.
Hmmmm .. Senator Nit Wit .. they aren't running for President
That's an excellent quote Anita.
It's beyond me why we act like we have little to do with the situation. Of course our RINO attacks help little, but Rush is right again.
We are in the majority, lets act like it for a change!! The hell with PC isms.
Funny, I had exactly the same reaction. Pennsylvania, I said to myself. Oh, lordy, Andrea says in his speech the President tried to tie Iraq to 9/11.
According the latest PEW poll(!), majority of Ameiricans believe media is UNPATRIOTIC. The hosts of the Sunday talk shows deserve maximum credit for that.
Penn I think.
Mornin, Miss Marple. FOX & Friends had a woman (Kay Daly) on saying there should not be any litmus test, and nominees for SCOTUS isn't the place to play politics. I hope Republican Senators take that response to heart and expose Democrats when they do it.
I agree it will not be Gonzales - I suspect O'Connor's replacement to be a virtual unknown to the population - certainly not on the currnt list of the "usual suspects" ; )
MSNBC will run it at Midnight MDT
He is the Senator of PA
But I think he is orginally (born) from NY though
Hagel is an asshole..He just said that Iraq was NOT involved with 9/11...THis is NBC's idea of fair and equal, Dodd an Hagel...
To all my friends here with high blood pressure who do not yet get MTP, do not listen to Dodd and Hagel who state confidently that Iraq has nothing to do with the WOT.
Republicans tend to do better in uniting even though he alienated the South for generations. Lincoln was dead by the time reconstruction took place, including the problems it produced.
Will even ONE of our Republican friends mention the Iraqi War Resolutuion signed by Democrats in 2002 which says that Al Qaeda was known to be in Iraq?
Nope .. I was totally wrong about Specter
He's from Wichita, Kansas
Senator Arlen Specter
Born in Wichita, Kansas, Specter studied at universities before and after serving in the United States Air Force from 1951 to 1953. He passed the Pennsylvania Bar in 1956. He soon became a prominent lawyer in Philadelphia, eventually becoming District Attorney. He worked with the Warren Commission investigating the assassination of John F. Kennedy. As a chief counsel for the commission he authored the controversial "magic bullet theory". In 1980, Specter became the Republican candidate for Senate when Republican incumbent Richard Schweiker announced his retirement. He had previously run for the Senate in 1976, but was defeated by John Heinz in the Republican primary.
I'll bet dollars to donuts Specter's not an original Pennsylvanian. Transylvania maybe. Amy Penners know from whence he carpetbagged?
