Have you seen this?: Fantasy Congress

Thanks Mol....I will try to ping whoever I can remember that used to show up.

BTW..good luck on Thanksgiving...my daughter is having ours at HER house..and she is having 20 something people, bless her heart.

Actually...I don't think Senate watching is going to be much "fun"...but, Bahbah and I have decided that it is more important than ever, that we keep ours eyes on them more than ever.

We will keep notes for you!

I saw a couple of guys on Neil Cavuto's show last week that were talking about this...

I never figured out fantasy football...fantasy Congress sounds HARD!!

Maybe Voinovich will give a speech apologizing for keeping Bolton off the UN...

I want the Pubbies to watch, and learn how the Dems USE and EXERCISE power...absolutely..with no care whatsoever about the minority...so that when we get it back in 2 years...

I think it's easy to win this..just choose a team with the perfect ADA ratings...but that means I'd have to draft Teddy..

It's tough to think about a fantasy Congress when we've just realized we're now living in a nightmare one!

Do you know what I heard Bill O'Reilly say today..on his radio show?

He said that some poll had Hillary having 41% of Americans that said they would NEVER vote for her.

He said that was the highest of all of the potential candidates except Newt...he said Newt had the highest WON'T VOTE FOR poll numbers of the GOP....but he didn't say what percentage.

That doesn't sound good for Newt for POTUS..but for RNC Chairman..he would be great..

Newt doesn't have a chance .. too much baggage

Some may forget why he resigned from office .. but I can guarantee you the Dems haven't

BTW ... I couldn't help but notice with some of these speeches .. the Dems don't seem to be trying to reduce the spending and the deficit like they promised they would

Wow .. what a huge shocker ... / heavy sarcasm >

I saw that....and I had heard about the Rummy thing in Germany...but not the story about Gonzalez.

I betcha 10 bucks that that is on their list..right under impeaching President Bush and VP Cheney...

All of the talk about "reducing the deficit..and holding down spending" that the dems used in the campaign should have been followed by a laugh track...but, if you listen to even a LOT of conservatives on the radio, President Bush is the WORST of all of them....sigh

How in the world will he have time to oversee the RNC? Oh, wait, I forgot, he's a Senator. He probably has plenty of time!

You know, I have taken up both cooking and scrapbooking, since I can't garden until spring. I may have to pick up another hobby as well, just to keep my mind off all of this stuff.

I understand why Norm Coleman is going to bat for farm aid for his area, but he illustrates perfectly how all of the Katrina "compassionate spending" is coming back to bite us in the @ss. We didn't use any economic criteria to decide to throw money at that one because we "cared", so if we don't throw money at this one, it means we don't care.

As I indicate above, the standard is now "do we care the way we cared about Katrina?" PUKE. What a way to run a country. Now Kaka is coming in for money for the RAIN.

How did these states ever survive all those years before the Federal Government bailed them out

Heck .. why have Governors and state legislators if the Feds are going to take care of everything?

Gregg up pointing out how the Dems run stopping the spending
