…same bullshit.  Take a look: If you could mask the time markers here, you’d swear you were listening to CNN this week.  It is the same GOP script, with many of the same hacks, saying exactly the same things — and they were spectacularly wrong then.  And the new hacks haven’t found anything new to […]

UPDATED: No Heart Chump Also a No Class Chump

I just heard on WIP that Donovan McNabb blamed the Arizona loss on the defense in an interview. I’m looking for a link right now It wasn’t a recent interview. It was from his rambling post NFC championship game interview and it is being discussed now because McNabb wants another Ga-zillion dollar contract extension. Not […]

Deep Legislative Strategy Thought

Did Obama allow Republicans to throw him in the briar patch on this economic recovery bill? On the front page of today’s NJ Gannett is running an AP “analysis” column by Andrew Taylor which argues for MORE direct stimulus for “shovel ready” projects. If the conference version of the bill now contains projects and less […]

What a shocking, surprise

All I can do is shrug my shoulders and say whatever. At this point, I truly don’t understand what is so freaking hard about paying your taxes and reporting income when you are a multi-millionaire/former Senator. It disgusts me to a level beyond my unemployed intellect. First off the fact that he can just cut […]

UPDATED: The New Face of the GOP

He won. By my count, former Maryland Lt. Governor Steele needs five more votes, and Michigan GOP chair Saul Anuzis (considered to be a moderate) just dropped out, with 20 votes on the last ballot. Anuzis didn’t endorse, but I’m willing to bet Steele will pick up at least 5 votes out of Anuzis’ 20. […]

On Bipartisanship

Filed in National by on January 30, 2009 12 Comments

Ben Smith at Politico captures the state of play as well as anyone at this stage: … “bipartisanship” is as much a brand as any conceivable Washington reality. These House Republicans, as is traditional when a caucus shrinks, are more conservative, and in safer seats, than their predecessors. The notion that they’d wind up anything […]

I liked the ’74/75 Steelers so I guess I’ll root for them because Chuck Knoll will be happy if they win. Doesn’t Franco Harris look like Gabe Kaplan? They could be brothers.

Last night over dinner my 11 year old daughter announced that her science teacher doesn’t like Joe Biden.  After exchanging a look with my husband I asked, “Why would you think that?”  She then proceeded to explain… “When we were watching the Inauguration in class Mr. XXXX said that finally Delaware is rid of him.” […]

Day 2 Of Castle’s Betrayal of Delaware

Castle is in full spin control mode. I guess he is hearing from the majority of Delawareans that support the President. Keep up the pressure. Call Mike Castle’s office TODAY and tell him to break with the stale, corrupt, partisanship of the GOP and vote with the people of Delaware and President Obama for economic […]

Karen Weldin  Stewart is so in love with a 10 year old picutre of herself that it now graces the top of state’s Insurance Commissions web site www.delawareinsurance.gov. I could almost forgive her for using that picture when she was running for office because there was a kind of branding effect, but C’mon! Not only […]

Kudos to are due to Senator Blevins and Representative Kowalko and all of the co-sponsors of this bill to create an The Redistricting Commission for the State of Delaware — an independent commission to supervise the reapportionment of the GA after the next census. Really, this approach to reapportionment is all kinds of steps in […]
