Wussy Republicans

Sweet Jeebus, the Senate anti-Democrats are going to filibuster the Iraq resolutions? Even their own?

What are they so afraid of?

What's wrong with a debate on the merits?

And, whatever happened to "up or down" votes? Read below the fold...

Ho Lieberman and Hugh Hewitt make such a cute couple

The delusional, fascist rump of the Republican Partei--please, please, can we start calling them The Rump instead of The Base--are purging and surging (and binging on Cheetohs). Hugh Hewitt [DCOW] has posted a pledge: Read below the fold...

When Republicans and the SCLM yammer about "bipartisanship," remember this

[C&L readers, welcome! The United Arab Emirates post you expected is here.]

AP:

LARRY MARGASAK
The House on Friday overhauled the board supervising its teenage pages, responding to a scandal that left youngsters vulnerable to a lawmaker's sexual come-ons and helped Democrats win control of Congress.

Closeted Atheists and Politics

Confession time...

In 2006, I ran for the US House against an unholy a far-right DINO and lost in the Primary. I drop the phrase, "I placed second in a three-way race", to either joke-it or to save face--it could be either. In reality, the incumbent got 86.2%, I got 10.0% and Mr.Last Place got 3.8%.

First, they came for the children

The excellent Pachacutec on ICE concentration camps for children who, having been born here, are US citizens.

See, it can happen here.

And it can happen to you.

Oh, wait. They're brown-colored. Sorry. Forget I posted. Read below the fold...

General in Pentagon Christianist video also abused rank to solicit campaign contributions for Republicans

What a surprise:

Featured in the video are four generals and three colonels, including Maj. Gen. Jack Catton Jr., who is on active duty at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia. Catton was investigated by the Air Force last spring after he sent an e-mail from his work account urging Air Force Academy graduates to contribute to a Republican candidate for Congress.

Christianists force conversion on the powerless using your tax dollars

Dems on holding Republicans accountable for Foley: "Na ga happen." Why?

Does anyone else think this stinks? From ABC's KGO affilliate in, erm, San Francisco:

[Democratic] Representative Howard Berman: "The most important contribution this report makes, and it does it well, is to tell the story of what happened."

And then Berman refused to take any questions.

The committee wrote it "...was disturbed by the conduct of some of those who dealt with allegations of Foley's behavior.

Republicans "willfully ignorant"

Of course, that's true about Republicans in general, on any subject whatever, including Iraq, but in this case we're talking about the Ethics committee report on Republican Foley's pedophilia:

Foley panel: GOP didn't protect pages
The panel said it discovered a pattern of conduct among many "to remain willfully ignorant of the potential consequences" of Foley's conduct.

"That's a hell of an act! What do you call it?"

That's the setup for the punchline to the famous joke, The Aristocrats! Now, it may be that with the Iraq Study Group, the long-running and incredibly vile "family act" that the Bush malAdministration has been putting on for the American people is about to reach some kinda awful climax and punchline--"The Aristocrats!"--as well. We can only hope. Read below the fold...

Republicans "tear up the tracks" as they surrender Congress to Dems

Oh my goodness! I thought they were going to be Bipartisan! (I guess they were just curious...) Online Wall Street Journal:

Like a retreating army, Republicans are tearing up railroad track and planting legislative land mines to make it harder for Democrats to govern when they take power in Congress next month.

You can trust the Republicans... To be Republicans! Let's hope they leave the D's on the keyboards, eh? Read below the fold...

Eric Schmidt of Google speaks to Republicans

Sarah’s simple proposal got me thinking and I came across an article in which Marshall Sponder asks:

Now, the only thing I really question is why Eric Schmidt is telling this stuff to Republican Governors - isn't he supposed to be neutral?

Katherine Harris contributor indicted for sending white powder, threats to liberals, while our famously free press yawns

So, a winger sends threats and white powder to liberals, the LA Times buries the story in local news, and nobody else picks up on it. That darn liberal media:

A federal grand jury indicted a Woodland Hills man Friday on charges of sending threatening letters with white powder to half a dozen politicians and celebrities, including incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and television personalities Jon Stewart and Keith Olbermann.
