They wiped the slate clean so quickly for the next vote it was impossible to digest the event. C-SPAN offered it's usual incisive overview. They hire catatonics ... "On the Democrat Line from Florida ... blehhhhhh ...."

I listened to some of those calls. Whoever said it earlier had it right....they are seminar callers working from a script. Tonight...they must have been told to sound old and frail and FOR the Democrat plan. Didn't matter which line they called in on.

ArneFufkin,

Sorry -- I didn't see that you thought we lost 215-216. When I said, "You are correct," I assumed you thought it had passed. I read too quickly.

The measure passed 216-215.

That's the last time I try to answer two people at once concerning a vote.

I guess I'll turn the lights off, huh? Hello? Anybody here?

Dems are heckling DeLay during his speech

I think what we need is a good old fashion wild west bar fight in the House chambers. Now that would be CSPAN worth watching.

Rush doesn't have the keen insight anymore, and he is a lousy interviewer.

That is exactly how I have been feeling as well -- nice to know I am not the only one!

Keep remembering that a Freeper reminded me that Rush was a Buchanan supporter against the first President Bush in 1992 primaries which started the fracture of the Republicans and led to Perot/Clinton tag team against President Bush.

Guess I am the wrong kind of Conservative according to some on here -- Rush is not #1 in my book -- now he is not even on my radio most days!

I wimped out and went to bed early this morning! Couldn't take anymore seminar callers.

I tried to get through on the Republican line and it was busy from the minute they flashed the number. The RATs must have the number of speed dial.

They didn't need to go to different callers -- could have replayed the first caller over and over again!

They're hysterical. Why? Because they're losing. Their own lies no longer connect with enough people to win elections. They have no message. They have been bankrupt of a coherent and accepted philosophy of government since about the late '60s. They're wild with fear that their party will slip into the abyss like the Whigs in the 1850s. And they have reason to fear.

Pelosi now reminscing on the great "Clinton years."

To anyone who waxes nostalgic about the "great Clinton years," they should be asked, "Quick, tell me one program Clinton put through in 8 years, besides midnight basketball."

These people are downright scary and crazy!

I was poking aroung the internet last night, looking for other political discussion forums, and came across one where there was a person who was so strident against Bush and Republicans, that I clicked on her "personal" information, her bio and whatnot. What she shares about herself is insane. She talked about the police tracking her in the early 1990s, using irradiated mail to mark her which made her physically ill, from which she never recoverd. Truly "aluminum foil hat" material. There is no reasoning with such people. I fear they are truly mentally unstable.

I think you're right. But this is why the Democrats and the left in general are losing. They put all this effort into their spin, thinking people actually WATCH C-Span.

Rush is not #1 in my book

I'm a new Laura Ingraham fan. She's cute, she's funny, she's catty, she's intelligent, she's consistent, she's refreshing, she has great guests on her show (something Rush won't allow, because he doesn't want anyone honing in on his show).

Bubba lied under oath, Bubba lied on camera while wagging his finger/dog, and Bubba cried on cue.

The Rats never had any problems "trusting" X42 on the issues (especially national security).

I can only get Laura when I travel,but, I also think she is terrific. I get her email updates.She's funny and she's not depressing like Rush has become, with his constant doom and gloom and anger.

Here are a few examples from www.boycott-republicans.com:

Hastert & DeLay: you think no one is watching C-Span at 1:20 a.m. CST? Wrong. We've watched all day and all night. We know what you are doing. The only legal thing we can do is GET OUT THE VOTE AND FIRE ALL REPUBLICANS. You don't have an ounce of decency. I've been unemployed since Oct 2001, there are no jobs thanks to bush & the Republicans, so I will have plenty of time to wage cyber-war on you. And I will have time to volunteer and drive people to the polls. bush can raise 10 billion for all I care; he still doesn't have then numbers but our side does. RALLYING CRY PEOPLE: ANYBODY BUT BUSH -- ANYBODY BUT BUSH -- ANYBODY BUT BUSH. Sign up with Moveon.org and help.

And here's a snippet of another:

I read today that the top 200 taxpayers in the year 2000 paid an average of 22.3% of their total income in taxes (the average income was around $173 million). I looked back and I paid 24.7% of my income and I KNOW I didn't make that kind of cash. My meager income was taxed greater than the nations richest and that was BEFORE Bush's tax cuts for the rich.

I'm usually an optimist about reaching people with truth, but I get a dose of reality when reading some of this garbage.

well, based on reports today...it appears those they got to switch over were moderate/liberal Republicans, not conservatives. I don't think that's a great sign.

How about this one?

"We need regime change in this country. It boggles my mind to think about what the republicans, this administration, enacts *every* single day - we can spend $400 BILLION on "defense" - this year - but $100 MILLION on libraries, and still need $30 more BILLION for Homeland security because I guess the $400b isn't keeping us 'safe'. We've murdered - yes murdered - tens of thousands of people in Iraq and [don't forget about] Afghanistan, and we create new terrorists every day with our imperialist policies. There were no WMDs , there was no imminent threat, but there was money to be made for republican friends. Down with them all, they are the enemy of the people."

They're not the enemies of the American people, though. We're not world citizens (although they'd like us to be)!

That's a quote from McDermott?...Awww. The poor libraries! We buy up new cruise missles to protect our nation, and yet libraries go be begging because there isn't enough money to stock the bookshelves with "Stephanie has Two Mommies" and such.
