GOP Vulnerable

While I'm not about to count my chickens before they're hatched, this article in the NYTimes makes me hopeful. In House Races, More GOP Seats Look Vulnerable:
WASHINGTON, May 19 — For months, even in the face of an avalanche of bad news for Republicans, Democratic ambitions for capturing Congress have collided with an electoral map created to protect Republicans from ouster. Despite polls showing rising support for Democrats and scorn for Republicans, analysts have said Democratic hopes for big gains remain remote, because so few seats are in contention.

That appears to be changing.

Over the past week, a handful of once-safe Republican Congressional seats have come into play, and other Republican incumbents are facing increasingly stiff re-election battles, according to analysts, pollsters and officials in both parties. The change amounts to a slight but significant shift in the playing field, and a potentially pivotal change in the dynamics of this midterm election.

I pray that this is a sign that the american public is finally coming to their senses.

Lion kitty Maxx finally decides to try out his new kitty-cube. I think that expression means, "ummm, thanks... I don't really fit in here, but the thought was nice."

Fuck you Senator

Senator Pat Roberts (R- Douchebag) said today, again, "you have no civil liberties if you're dead."

Hey Senator! In my opinion, if you have no civil liberties, you have no freedom. And you'd might as well be dead.

So come kiss my centaur ass. Then go fuck yourself sideways with a rusty chainsaw, you constitution hating asswipe.

Go Russ Go!!

From the WAPO, Feingold, Specter Clash Over Gay Marriage, with Specter and Feingold getting into a shouting match.

I say, hit'em with the chair, Russ. Specter claims he's a defender of the constitution, but he's never hesitated to cave when chimpy and his minions came calling.

He's a defender of the constitution like I'm a monarch butterfly. Asshole.
