Shovel Ready

I have to give it to the Democrats: they can create a villain out of thin air at a moment's notice. This time, they decided to finger Joe Liebermann as some sort of a backstabber with renegged on a deal, even though his publicly announced position has never changed, and there is no indication that he had agreed to anything.

This would seem to suggest that the Democratic attempts to take over healthcare are in serious trouble in the Senate. The various schemes may not be dead yet, but they do seem to be in very serious trouble.

I wrote him to keep up the good work, even though he does not represent me.

In todays news, the Democrats took time out from calling the Republicans "intolerant extremists" long enough to describe their own former VP canidate and north-eastern Jewish liberal as a "backstabber" who "wants people to die".

They then went on to decry "hypocrites who engage in hateful rhethoric".

In other news, a dog bit a man on Essex St today ...

Didn't they praise John McCain and call him a maverick for going against his party? Oh how times have changed.

Repub goes against his party - Maverick
Dem goes against his (old) party - Backstabber
Hypocrisy - Priceless!

Tarheel Repub Out!

Don't be drawn into the melodramatics. It's all a shell game. Reid isn't showing the 'final bill' because there are no revisions. All the additions and deletions are pure fiction.

Fiction that allows the various Senators to give whatever soliloquy they feel their home State voters will swallow. Having been given the opportunity to placated their voter they will then dutifully vote for whatever Reid wants them to vote for.

There is no spoon.
