Representation

I once voted for Zell Miller. So, from 2000-2005 he was my representative in the US Senate.

This is what he said at the Republican National Convention last year. And this is what he said after the convention. This is what he believes. I guess he doesn’t know anything about this.

Not too worry. Zell Miller no longer represents me. Now he does. And so does he.

Yay…

This just in: do a Google search on the word "failure" and note the result.

Do it now!

What bums me out is my representation is just as bad, and I live in a blue state for christs sake! A retiring Arlen Specter and Rick Santorum!

Anonymous,

Did it. And I wasn't disappointed!

J,

Arlen Specter is a progressive compared to my guys, and I think Santorum is going down in flames.

The Viscountess' family is from western PA, and her folks say there were a lot of voting shenanigans in their little town, (and all over the state) but the anti-gump turnout was just too high for them to be able to pull it off. PA is okay!

re: failure

Excellent! The Googleites first made that happen for the phrase "miserable failure," and now they've succeeded in giving He Who Must Not Be Named the top spot for the single word.

Anybody see Santorum on the Daily Show the other night? What a fucking dope. Stewart joked at the end that he'd give Santorum 5-to-1 odds that his book would sell better than Bill Bennett's, and the idiot didn't even get the joke. Stewart had to explain it to him. In front of millions of people. And this was after he'd eviscerated all of Santorum's idiotic arguments about how the government should legislate morality. (Whose morality? Santorum's, of course.)

That said, I just read a very interesting article in last month's Harper's about the latest Republican strategy to help at-risk Reps and Sens -- put them on the appropriate Appropriations Committee! Through lovely little add-ons known as "earmarks" (which are added to inches-thick appropriations bills at the last minute before Congress votes on them, ensuring a minimum of oversight), members of these committees can really bring home the bacon! I bet he wins. Those people are ruthless, and will do anything to keep their seats.

Former Zell voter too, huh? Come around to the Brick Store, upstairs in the Belgian bar, some Wednesday night, eight o'clock, (not Aug 10) and the first round's on me and Larry.

Arlen Specter may be a progressive compared to your guys, but he's retiring. And untill Santorum is defeated, I do not have any representation that has any regard for my input.
