Scandal! Coverup!
Author: Raine    Date: 01/24/2013 13:49:24

I watched a good portion of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testimony to both the house and senate yesterday.

I want to thank the GOP for showing the rest of the world how prepared she is should she decide to run for President. Even more important, she showed the world that the GOP looks like this:

You're being unfair to the Stooges. The Stooges were professional entertainers. The Rethugs have an unsettling amount of incompetence in there.

Well said, TR. The Stooges had craft. They had Curly! None of those mooks comes near Curly, the Uber-Stooge.

Agreed.. Turtle McConnell is more like Shemp in this instance.

Well, I seem to have hit a nerve this morning.

BTW I gotta ask.. has anyone else here seen the Farrelly Bros.' Three Stooges movie yet?

If not, do it. You will NOT be disappointed!

I;m starting to get the feeling that Virginia Republicans might not get their way with the redistricting/electoral nonsense they are trying to pull.

the Lt. Governor is not on board -- and the Governor seems to be very cool about whether or not he will sign it.

It also may violate federal code.

It is now 14 days since I brought the pump back to MAH for the last time.

I seem to have asymmetric CIPN, of all things. My left side seems to be improving slightly, but the right (and curiously, the side the port is on) seems to be worse.

I've also had a number of sleepless nights recently.

Wisdom from The Oatmeal.

I've read a lot of The Oatmeal, but I missed this one. I was struck by this in the newspaper clipping at the bottom:

"The insurance agent gave the family money for toothbrushes, underwear, a change of clothes, shoes, coats, and other immediate essentials. The home was insured"

Nowadays, the homeowners in Jersey and Staten Island probably got the same amount of money for their entire house after Hurricane Sandy

Besides, if we really want to draw a Stooge parallel, McTurtle would be so overworked and denied the rest and healthcare he needed that he would end up suffering a series of debilitating strokes.

I posted a few links earlier this morning, I am not so sure they are going to get away with this. Between the Lt. Gov saying they are on their own and the Federal laws, this is going to be an uphill battle.

Bolling seems to be running as far from the crazies as he can get. He hate Cooch and the day after they took that redistricting vote he said if it had been a tie he would not have broken it.

Good morning, folks. I saw the stuff on VA last night on Rachel's show. It looks like the GOP is aware that they can no longer win office in an honest election with their hard right ideological positions, so now they have to rig the system in their favor in order to win. The whole push to change the Electoral Vote which could mean that in those states even if a Democrat wins the popular vote, the Gerrymandered districts will swing it to the GOP since it's the only reason they still control the House.

Good morning, bloggers!

I am okay with the Stooges, but I think that the Marx Brothers were funnier. Sadly, the Stooges had to work with a studio that only wanted short films, overworked them and underpaid them.

We are getting a little snow here. I will be prepping for my interview in Chicago tomorrow.

The GOP does not seem to realize that people are tired of having their votes denied. This plan may net them a win, but they seem willing to provoke a constitutional crisis.

If I was a Democratic candidate for President, won the popular vote in these states and others, and still lost, I would not recognize the "winner" from the GOP as President. I would start a mass protest to bring an end to this sham. Why does the GOP seem willing to deny democracy?

I'm gonna play the voice of reason here.. Even this less extreme change is a major step in restoring the Senate to working order. It shifts the burden of keeping the filibuster on the minority by forcing them to keep enough of their members on the chamber floor, even if it means staying there AND AWAKE for days in order to hold off cloture.

I've heard that too, not sure if it would split the VA Repubs or bleed off the more conservative Dem

I hope it works. They may be the squeaky wheel but there has to come a time when you need to get a new wheel. (hope that makes sense)

The only good thing is if it forces a movement to finally scrap the Electoral College and switch to direct popular vote for the Presidential election like any other democratic election. At least then the Presidential candidates would have to travel the country and not just go to the states that are "toss-ups".

I can't believe this man sits in Russ Fiengold's old seat. Yesterday he made a damn fool of himself in his questioning of SoS Clinton and today he looks even stupider.


At his secretary of state confirmation hearing Thursday, Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) called out Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) for missing a classified briefing on the deadly attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

Johnson pressed Kerry to commit to finding out what, exactly, happened on Sept. 11, 2012 at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. ....


"Senator, if you're trying to get some daylight between me and Secretary Clinton, that's not going to happen here today on that score," Kerry said. "I think you're talking past each other. I don't think that was the question. I think that, if your question is, 'Should the American people get the truth and does it matter?' Hillary Clinton would say yes, and I say yes. But that's not what I think she was referring to." Clinton was referring to the sequence and timing of the events, and when the intelligence information came to light, Kerry said.

Kerry: Senator were you at the briefing with the tapes?

Johnson: No.

Kerry: well for those of us that were there, we know.

John Kerry Sympathizes With Anti-War Protester Disrupting His Confirmation Hearing
“When I first came to Washington and testified, I obviously was testifying as part a group of people who came here to have their voices heard, and that is, above all, what this place is about.”
