Good morning, Alas!

I am so sorry that Lindsey Graham was reelected to the Senate. He’s like a boil that won’t heal.

True, but not just Graham, sorry to say. Our body politic is like a terrible skin disease of open sores, leaking wounds, pestering boils and cratered pockmarks.

And Graham’s surrogate father, McCain, with his penchant for betraying the GOP and his (barely) tamped down temper, is the heal that won’t boil.

I couldn’t vote for his opponent nor could I vote for Graham so I was forced to refrain from voting in that race.

Well said. I have been thinking a bit lately about how truly despicable most of the elected “leadership” is and it is disheartening. They are people, by and large, of no character or conscience.

Good morning. I look forward to having somebody on these talk shows talk about the (what appears to be) complete lack of a problem with refugees pouring out of Iran. In almost every major problem area I can remember, there are always thousands of people fleeing the scene. But, that must not be happening in Iran. Maybe the trouble there is not as widespread as the reports would make it appear.

Can hardly wait to hear the good general discuss the hundreds of deaths in Iraq in the past few weeks.

Or will he be praising O’s forward thinking on the situation on the ground.

That’s the same as voting for Graham’s opponent.

Good morning, FRiends...and Happy Sunday! Speaking of Iraq...last night I turned on Fox to hear a breaking news alert that the troops were being pulled on Tuesday. I've seen nothing reported since...has anyone?

Graham's opponent was better on the issues than Graham, especially amnesty. Robert (Bob) Conley 'says he walked away from the Republican Party years ago out of frustration over trade and immigration policies and the Iraq invasion. He says the GOP's "sellout of the American worker" infuriates him. He lashes out at both illegal and legal immigration, citing instances where his colleagues have suffered because corporations are allowed to recruit engineers and computer professionals from overseas.

Conley, a North Myrtle Beach Democrat who voted for Ron Paul in South Carolina's Republican presidential primary, says he believes his opposition to abortion rights, belief in marriage between a man and a woman and opposition to illegal immigration strike the right chord for voters here.

SC is a strong Red state. If you have an R after your name in a statewide election, you usually win. Some of us tried to get rid of Graham in the primary by backing Witherspoon. He got 33% of the vote,

Congratulations for working to beat Graham in the primary with what I assume is a true conservative (Witherspoon).

June 30th. was the agreed upon date. Bush administration made the agreement contingent upon the situation.

O doesn’t want to hear anything about any contingencies.

I'm shocked...the Friends are actually discussing other news stories and changed the bumper music. They even did Cap & Trade with Dick Morris.

Wanna bet Barry speaks at the funeral?

Fox news has washed all our brains with non stop coverage of M. Jackson.

When Anna Nicole Smith died, I kept a count of the daily "FoxNews Alert: ANS info". FoxNews ran news alerts for 28 days straight. I'd turn the channel every morning after the first one. After 28 days, I just quit watching FoxNews at all for months.

FoxNews frequently slides into sensationalism journalism.

That must be why the county is doing a second autopsy.

They need to make sure.

I thought I would take a look at Flopping Aces rather than listen to Gregory push for a public “option” in health care and Axelrod lie and this is what I got.

“Forbidden

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


Apache/1.3.41 Server at www.floppingaces.net Port 80”

Odd.

Axelrod: Without the stimulous, unemployment would be even worse.

Which is not a provable statement, of course.

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said on FOX News Sunday that Zero won’t sign a national health insurance bill that isn’t paid for but she didn’t want to touch the issue of taxing health insurance benefits for the employee. Brett Baer pressed her on an exemption for union employees and she, as a politician, was able to answer without answering.

Well, actually Axelhood should be able to point to some economic model that backs up his statement, but of course he can't.

Plagiarist???

IIRC, he was the producer on several of Jackson's hit records. Could be wrong, though.
