Yeah! I love this one, I'd like to triple the stars on its rating.

    Inane stupidity! All folks who work in politics and on committties and deal in compromise come off looking guilty. I think it is time especially today to pray for these people. Would you like to have read and ponder that 100 pages of bailout legislation and vote on it. Bless those you choose to serve in this way and when you identify a bum throw him out.

    Very true , but after joining the beltway crowd they usually become just one of the usual suspects. Shame on them. To make matters worse, we keep electing the same bunch. Shame on us.Hey Waff, as usual ,you Libs have no sense of humor.

    Ron Paul comes to mind.

    I still adhere to the idea that we should hang at least one public official per year -- that would bring just about the right kind of people into office, and perhaps re-instill the thoughtful words of Nathan Hale, "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country". Sadly, those who would rather give their lives for their country than for seeking for a public title are all but extinct; no where is this more evident than in a Congress that so easily sends the American military into war while keeping their own kids bouncing around on military deferments. Cowards all.

    A rarity indeed. Logan, the only problem with hanging politicians is that they seem to have nine lives (i.e. political lives) like cats. We'd wear ourselves out hanging just one of them.
     -- Ken, Allyn, WA     
    Logan, dear friend, there are no deferments, no draft, unless you as usual are referring to another time (often you are lost in the 1700's pondering the founders).
