    A picture of a black man with a frown, made me think of a young black actor, known for frowning on a sitcom, and that makes me a racist? Hopefully, I simply missed an attempt at humor.

    Why should there be an investigation at all? All you have to do is go to the Constitution and ask the following question

    The problem is people like the sound of getting rid of departments, but when you do and they start losing things they will bitch.

    Re: New Congress Sworn in.

    a new gop owned house!

    with a plurality of FORTY NINE members!

    AND quite a few dems willing, some even eager, to BOLT

    did you hear nancy was confirmed as leader of her caucus by the FEWEST votes for any party leader since NINETEEN TWENTY THREE?

    The anti-Pelosi vote - Washington Times

    the NAY's, for those few of you who actually want to know what's going on BEFORE you click and submit, were:

    gabby giffords from AZ, john barrow from GA, cardoza and costa from CA's water starved central valley, ron kind from WI, dan lipinski from IL, kurt schrader from OR, jason altmire (the single most sought after health care vote) from PA, heath shuler (ex redskin qb) from NC, dan boren from OK, jim cooper from TN, joe donnelly (the first dem to run an anti pelosi ad) from IN, tim holden from PA, larry kissell and mike mcintyre from NC, mike ross (top bluedog) from ARK, jim matheson (brother of the judge promoted) from UT, and mike michaud from maine

    there are NINETEEN still serving dems who voted AGAINST obamacare, presumably many or most of whom will JOIN boehner and his bad 242 for repeal

    did you hear what CLAIRE MCCASKILL said today on msnbc?

    McCaskill moves away from mandate - David Catanese - POLITICO.com

    that's quite a bombshell

    of course, ms mccaskill, as loyal an obamite as stood up in 2010, hails from the show me state, where SEVENTY ONE PERCENT voted via measure c their DISAPPROVAL of the mandate last spring

    the show me's, by the way, are famously almost never wrong when it comes to national issues, no state has picked the prez more often nor more accurately

    of course, ms mccaskill is one of the FOURTEEN vulnerable upstairs dems (vs only one republican, scott brown) up for reelection in 2012

    indeed, ms mccaskill is probably one of the LESS endangered dems, certainly ben nelson and jon tester and kent conrad are feeling MORE risk, while bill nelson, bob casey, debbie stabenow, herb kohl, sherrod brown, jeff bingaman and combat boots webb in virginia are generally in no better shape

    Dem leaders face 2012's long shadow - Manu Raju - POLITICO.com

    and how 'bout that jay rockefeller from WV, as liberal a rep in reid's roundhouse as any this side of schumer and wyden, hyper proponents all of the public option?

    Rockefeller takes aim at EPA - Darren Samuelsohn - POLITICO.com

    of course rockefeller's recalcitrance is nothing new, the progressive from appalachia has been piping up vs the epa about once a month for a year

    and what about joe manchin, who only won kkk byrd's seat after putting a bullet thru cap and trade, who voted with mad mitch mcconnell on dadt and dream?

    Joe Manchin stands by skirting votes - Shira Toeplitz - POLITICO.com

    what do you think all that means, looking forward?

    conservatives, you are to be praised for the conspicuous fellowship, principle and professionalism you've performed, we must persist, even improve

    our opponents will continue to insult and evade while sanctimoniously congratulating themselves on their evolved superiority and blaming bush

    which is why mccaskill and rockefeller and manchin and nelson and boren and giffords and altmire and shuler, et al, will continue to come our way

    pros today see A DOZEN moves ahead, the footfalls are that foreseeable

    even obama's beginning to recognize

    take care, all
