Remember how the Dems were going to create the most ethical and transparent Congress? Yeah well, hope you didn’t believe them.
Today they are sending around their 2007 Continuing Resolution. It’s a PDF and you can see it here.
First, it is not searchable, despite being 137 pages.
Second, it is covered in chicken scratch (check out page 11).
Third, they are claiming it bans earmarks, but if you read all 137 pages you will discover it does no such thing. The language, found on page 112, just says earmarks found in reports will have no legal effect. But, that’s the way things are now.
Oh, the anti-earmark language does not even define what an earmark is — that’s legislation 101 people.
So, to recap — the Democrats are full of it and the soccer moms and dads who bought their line of horse hockey about ethics and transparency should be flogged for being stupid people.
Celebrities have subjected us to all sorts of annoying trends in the past few years. Who can forget Puffy Diddly Dee and “Vote or Die.”
Now, such luminaries of science as Josh Hartnett, Leonardo Di Caprio, and Orlando Bloom, want us all to stop breathing or die. At least that is what I take from this. They want us to cut our CO2 emissions, which is most readily done by holding our breath.
To be sure, we’ve had a mild winter here in Georgia — at least until about last week when the bottom dropped out. Even so, most of our high temperatures have not reached the levels they were in the thirties. But, because Orlando Bloom said so, we should all stop breathing now.
This is such horsecrap.
First, National Review has to expose to to cruncycons and metrocons and then runs off to embrace Romney as the anti-McCain as if Romney is some sort of conservative wet dream.
Now they want to hoist up this bull—-. National Review has lost its way. Can I finally say that.
There is no such thing as a Civicon. It’s called being an American.
Can you be a gaycon? I think so. I think taking seriously crunchycons, metrocons, concons, civicons, and NROnikcons makes you a gaycon because you’re wasting my freaking time with this stupid crap.
Be an American. Be a Reaganite. But just give this stupid crap a rest. Yes, it does make me angry. We get subjected to Paris Hilton exposes in People magazine and now National Review gives us xxxCon exposes.
They’ve gone from being the voice of the conservative movement to being the National Geographic of the Conservative Movement with special pull out posters of Mitt Romney in his sacred undergarments. Next they’ll hire David Kirkpatrick away from the New York Times to stalk us all.
This is just stupid!
The Politico is a new political news organization and they have a website up. I’ll be quoted in Tuesday’s edition, which you can read here.
“I really feel strongly that if the slate is what we have now, then we’re not going to win in 2008,” added Erick Erickson, the founder of the influential blog, RedState. Erickson, who recently posted an entry about the GOP contenders titled “They All Suck,” said in an interview that he’s “not sure if there is a Republican out there who can win” the general election next year.
It was a good time. I was only on for about 10 minutes or so. We talked about John Kerry’s idiocy in Davos, Switzerland. The idiot goes over there, hobknobs with a bunch of terrorists and French folk, then has the nerve to talk about how the U.S. is an international pariah. Yeah, because you know, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, Syria, and France don’t like it.
Ask you me, I think we’re better off with the Axis of Smelly People not liking us. The Eastern Europeans do, but then they are really European to Kerry because they embrace American style capitalism.
I spoke at Macon’s Rotary today at First Presbyterian. I joked that Christy and I were going to have to rejoin First Pres because last week clapping broke out at Vineville during the service. Most people laughed — everybody except the Episcopalians; they just looked perplexed.
I’ve been consulting with Christy’s boss about a possible mayoral run. There were lots of people interested in that today. It was a good opportunity to get me ready for Tuesday after next. I fly to Kansas to the Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas to talk about the internet and politics.
This is going to be a busy month. We’re going to go to First Pres this coming Sunday for Sunday School. Then busy that week. The next Sunday, I’m off to DC for a twelve hour jaunt to have supper with Bobby Jindal (he’s getting ready to run for Governor of Louisiana. My friend Ben wants some of us to come meet him). That’ll mean being up all night with my old roommate from D.C. — always a fun time.
Then I come home Monday morning. Leave again Tuesday. Come home Monday. Recover till the end of the month and then spend a week in DC for CPAC.
Busy. Busy. Busy.
I’ve just spent the evening with a half dozen ladies, showing them how to blog. I set up a blog for my wife’s Bible Study group. The world will never be the same. Wow.
I think I need a beer and some Nirvana or Pearl Jam or something to re-masculinize now.
If you get really bored tomorrow (Monday) night, I’ll be on the Mike Reagan show at 6 pm tomorrow night. In Macon, it actually comes on at 10 p.m. My friend Jeb Babbin is going to be a guest host tomorrow. We’ll be discussing politics.
If you aren’t in a market where you can listen on radio, you can listen here starting at 6 p.m.
Thank you, Dennis.
I, personally, don’t want a president who puts “working across the aisles” ahead of standing by his principles, and I certainly don’t put much faith in someone’s apparent competence and communication skills. Far too many people are more concerned with appearances than substance.
