Because face it.
I'm right, and you're wrong.

Judd Greggg Today:

Gregg (N.H.), the senior Republican on the Budget Committee, told The Hill in a recent interview that Republicans will wage a vicious fight if Democrats try to circumvent Senate rules and use a budget maneuver to pass a trillion-dollar healthcare plan with a simple majority.

Judd Gregg speaking in favor of using Budget Reconciliation to ram through drilling in ANWAR in 2005:

"We are using rules of the Senate here. Is there something wrong with majority rules? I don't think so."

SO when they do it to ram through their agenda, it's simply the "rules of the senate" and theres nothing wrong with it. When we try to do it, It is "circumventing" those rules.

Will the media call him out on this, or will they continue to paint reconcilation the way Republicans want them to, as a way of "cheating"? I'm not holding my breath.

A friend sent this to me. Not sure who posted it originally so I can’t give credit. I'd like to though as I think it's perfect.

Is there anything Dick Cheney won't lie about?

Last night, Cheney said he’d asked the CIA to release memos he had read containing all the intelligence that had been collected via torture. “I’ve now formally asked the CIA to take steps to declassify those memos so we can lay them out there and the American people have a chance to see what we obtained and what we learned and how good the intelligence was, as well as to see this debate over the legal opinions,” Cheney said.


“The agency has received no request from the former Vice President to release this information,” the source told me a few moments ago.

11% of Americans are admitted traitors?

This is pretty shocking. 11% of Americans hate our country so much they would secede. What's even more shocking is the state with the highest amount of traitors per capita. Massachusetts? California? Nope.

That independence is clear from the slightly higher levels of support for secession among Texans. In a separate survey, 31% of Texas voters say that their state has the right to secede from the United States. However, just 18% would vote to secede, while 75% favor staying a part of the United States.

I thought Bush was a disastrous President in many ways, and personally responsible for treating the constitution like a roll of toilet paper, but I never in a million years would want to sedcede or even consider something so ridiculous. I am and always will be a proud American.

The irony is Texas rakes in about twice as many federal dollars as they pay in taxes, so if they did decide to betray their country and secede, it'd actaully help with the deficit...

Bill Kristol Immune to Irony

“So I hope the best and the brightest who will be joining the new president will at least entertain the possibility that a lot of what they think they know is wrong.”

“We’re not in a civil war. This is just not true.”
The U.S. can afford to “stretch our Army and Marines” for “another year or so” in Iraq. [8/24/07]

Vouched for a “a ticket of Fred Thompson and David Petraeus” in 2008.

April 4, 2003:
"There's been a certain amount of pop sociology in America ... that the Shia can't get along with the Sunni and the Shia in Iraq just want to establish some kind of Islamic fundamentalist regime. There's almost no evidence of that at all. Iraq's always been very secular."

November 30, 2005 (column titled "Pelosi's Disastrous Miscalculation"):
All this made me think the 2006 elections could result in a Speaker Pelosi. I now think that unlikely. Pelosi's endorsement today of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq makes the House Democrats the party of defeat, the party of surrender. Bush's strong speech today means the GOP is likely to be--if Republican Congressmen just keep their nerve--the party of victory. Now it is possible that the situation in Iraq will worsen over the next year. If that happens, Bush and the GOP are in deep trouble. They would have been if Pelosi had said nothing. But it is much more likely that the situation in Iraq will stay more or less the same, or improve. In either case, Republicans will benefit from being the party of victory.
