WTF ??!!??

My mind went all 'splody when I read this....

a Muslim was actually elected to congress this year. THE FIRST Muslim in U.S. history to hold such a posistion.

He's stupid enough to go on a right wing moonbat show- Glen Beck...

and Glen actually says

BECK: OK. No offense, and I know Muslims. I like Muslims. I've been to mosques. I really don't believe that Islam is a religion of evil. I -- you know, I think it's being hijacked, quite frankly.

With that being said, you are a Democrat. You are saying, "Let's cut and run." And I have to tell you, I have been nervous about this interview with you, because what I feel like saying is, "Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies."

And I know you're not. I'm not accusing you of being an enemy, but that's the way I feel, and I think a lot of Americans will feel that way.

Now the thing that strikes me the funniest, besides as I said this congressman being dumb enough to be on this show... is the sentence " I'm not accusing you of being an enemy..."
Yes. Yes he is.

Beck also is saying that democrats- who Beck defines as "cut and run" are on the same page as the terrorists... So Beck has a hard time finding the difference between a democratic muslim and a terrorist.

Checks Please...

[ wish to disclaim the below as MY= Drew Harris’ views. What I say below may or may not also be the opinion of Evan and Adam, I haven’t checked in with them… So while I approve the below they might not… and I don’t wish to imply that they do… though of course I hope they agree with me…]

Well, it’s not all good news but the news today was better then I actually hoped for. We now have “checks and balances” in our government again. With a democratic majority in the house and the senate spilt sooo much (still not sure if the dems=repugs or the dems=repugs +1 at this time), this means that to pass any bills the senate will have to work with the democratically controlled congress.

Already the fruits of the election have begun to be harvested as W. nominated someone else for Secretary of Defense. A friend pointed out that had W. agreed to this change two weeks ago the repugs might still hold power; I retorted that had W. changed secretaries 8 months ago- the repugs would’ve controlled the process. That’s where I think the real fun will come into play, with democrats in power- they’ll be able to ask the hard questions and stop the rubber stamping of W.’s appointments.

Some of the races I was especially happy with:

Patrick (d) winning the Ma. Governorship. He’ll be a) the first black Governor here and b) the first dem for like 12 years

Strickland(d) beats Blackwell® for the Ohio Governorship. I’m happy about this for several reasons… Most of the reasons are the fact that Blackwell helped the repugs steal the 2004 election. I thought Blackwell would be able to steal this one- but it goes to show what I’ve been saying for years- if enough people vote, you can’t steal the election. Enough people voted against Blackwell that he couldn’t steal the election for himself.
This also means that Blackwell can’t steal the Ohio election for the repug in 2008.

Casey( D) beats Santorum®- What can I say I hate “man on dog” Santorum

Missouri voted FOR stem cell research. Thank you Rush for making it such a big deal.

Arizona became the first state to have a ban of gay rights on the ballot AND IT DIDN’T PASS.

First Muslim elected to Senate- I’m happy any time a minority gets a voice and I hope that Keith Ellison teaches his fellow congressmen that not all Muslims are evil( although this could be an uphill battle as Ellison supports abortion rights and gay rights)

The races that I wasn’t happy about:
Duckworth(D) seems to have lost to Roskum®- Duckworth was an Iraqi war vet who lost both her legs… and was characterized as a “cut and runner” by the repugs. Indeed a friend said one of the reasons that Roskum won is because McCain helped Roskum… so McCain has more hypocrisy at the end of the 2006.

Gov. Perry® gets re elected in Texas- Perry only got about 39% of the vote- beating the democrat- 30%, an independent who got 18 and Kinky who got 12%. So odds are if we were the type of country that had RUN OFF elections… the dem would’ve gotten it as more people did NOT vote for Perry then did.

Note: posted this earlier today... and just found out( 8:50pm EST) that Webb(D) and thus the Dems have BOTH the House and Senate.
Yippie. Now the Dems have 2 years to shine before 2008.

Oh and if W. doesn't do what they like- They can NOT pass the budget and shut the government down.

Words fail me... but the anger remains...

I'm too f'ing tired to deal with the crap on the airwaves right now.

I'm pissed at Kerry for opening his piehole( and I say this because I *truly* feel Kerry did this because Bill Clinton has been making the news, and helping canidates, so Kerry spoke because he wanted to stay "relevent")...

And I'm pissed at our media for doing the repugs work....
CNN called a guy who wanted to SPEAK to a canidate a PROTESTER.
Watch this video... I don't see see the guy PROTESTING.... He doesn't have a sign nor is he screaming at Allen.

He is however being assalted... and camera crews are just letting the "secret service" or Allen's rent-a-thugs get away with it. If I was that guy I'd sue.

I liked this ad and I think this really is what the democrats SHOULD say.

Of course at this point, I'd consider myself lucky if for the first time in 16 odd years Ma. elects a democratic Govenor. Even if he is FOR RAPE.
