On the whole, however, I think the Republicans and conservatives have much less to fear than those at the other end of the political spectrum.
So true. Yes, Republicans and conservatives, (that should be all one word by now, don't you think?)=er== Republicans'n'conservatives have little to fear when it comes to getting tossed off A2K, but not because they are the nicest folks you'd ever want to talk to or meet. (They don't seem to show up at meets unless it's at Asherman's) It's because we enjoy seeing them try to buck each other up while back in Washington their elected representatives in control of all three branchs of government can't seem to get anything right the first or second or third time. They got themselves elected on the God, Guns and Gays agenda but now they find out they can't govern.
They can't write a bill unless it has a tax cut for the wealthy in it. That why Social Security Reform (hee hee ha ha) disappeared and why there is no Immigration bill. The present trifecta nonsense presented by the House to the Senate linking yet another tax cut for the hugely wealthy to a teeny raise in the Minimum Wage shows just how grossly incompetent the whole Republicans'n'conservatives crew is.
As for the President: well, now that Iran is emerging as a major power in the Middle East due in large part to our President's brilliant democracy-in-a-can plan in Iraq, with that country on the verge of Civil War, with the Israelis needing our every moment's attention while Lebanon burns and Hezzbolah sends rockets by the hundreds down on who knows where, while Pakistan (where Osama is) and India trade nuclear threats over Kashmir and terror and both continue to export atomic technology elsewhere, while North Korea prepares yet another missile launch across Japan and Africa continues to descend into complete and utter chaos, while Cuba holds it's breath and so does Miami, while the rest of the world wonders what they hell are we thinking---- the President will be spending time riding his bike near the East Texas Hill Country for the next ten days.
Congress will be in recess when he gets back to Washington which is lucky for us because they will have nothing for him to sign (or sign and ignore as is his wont.)
So relax A2K Republicans'n'conservatives, we're not the one who are going to get you killed, it's those dweebs you put in office.
