    About as predictable as the sun coming up tomorrow. McCarthy was next in line.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The GOP didnt learn thier Lesson.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I'm shocked. Surprised. Amazed. Flabbergasted, even.

    Labrador would've made things interesting, to say the least. But this will almost certainly mean more of the same old gridlock as usual.
