    Good evening, Jack.
    Good evening, Polgara. Nice post.

    He quit on GWB. He quit on the Senate. He quit on Romney. It's what he does.

    I'm quite non-ideological, but I value loyalty.

    I have a Senate confirmation hearing to backup my claim. What do you have?
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    You bet it was shameful. The Senate vote IMHO should be an up or down vote- 50% plus 1, not filibustered like it was last week.
