Comeback Geriatric

On November 3, 2004, Daddy called me from purgatory (regards to Uncle Bill) and said "You won't have Tom Daschle to kick around anymore."

It looks like Daddy might have been misguided - again.

"WASHINGTON -- Former Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle plans to wade deeper into presidential campaign waters next month with trips to Iowa, New Hampshire and Michigan.

The South Dakota Democrat said he would decide by year's end whether to officially enter the crowded Democratic field of potential 2008 candidates led by Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York. " Detroit Free Press

The Hotline's take.

What Would Jesus Do?

"'Even the baby Jesus accepted gifts, and I don't think it corrupted
him,' said Rep. Drew Saunders, a Mecklenburg County Democrat."

"By one vote, the House amended the bill to raise the thresholds for reporting gifts. In the executive branch bill, gifts worth more than $200 from nonfamily members, or more than $100 from anyone who does business with the state, would have to be reported. The amended bill for lawmakers would raise that to gifts of more than $1,000 and more than $500, respectively."
Raleigh News & Observer

I don't think Jesus ever went to Scotland on a corporate jet to golf. He fancied himself more of a fisherman.

Embracing Diversity, Cutting Taxes

It's like a friend of mine who held a party when he maxed out his last credit card.

The love that dare not speak its name, to me.

Mccain and Fallwell sittin in a tree p-a-n-d-e-r-i-n-g,
first comes a delusional love,
then comes laws about gay marraige,
then comes unwanted babies in a baby carraige.

Not Just Putin

"But the official said the call records were used for the limited purpose of tracing regular contacts of "known bad guys."" New York Times story

Excellent. As long as they're only listening to bad guys calls and leaving us good guys alone. Does the president look into the bad guys souls to determine whether we should listen to their calls?

Our dear leader in June of 2001:
"I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialogue. I was able to get a sense of his soul." BBC News

This reminds me of one of my favorite songs, which happens to be about dadddy.

Neil Young

I am a lonely visitor.
I came too late to cause a stir,
Though I campaigned all my life
towards that goal.
I hardly slept the night you wept
Our secret's safe and still well kept
Where even Richard Nixon has got soul.
Even Richard Nixon has got

Daddy was the best campaigner

Sorry Coach

The west coast football being played on Tom Osborne field is as foreign as the Washington establishment politics currently being played througout the state. Osborne didnt take any time off from congress to campaign or advocate punishing children for the "crimes" of their parents.

Bring back the triple option and political integrity to Nebraska.

Time's 100

The People Who Shape Our World

The Dixie Chics? Angelina Jolie - if your world is shaped by what you read while in the grocery check out line. Al Gore - wasn't he a senator before he became a radical environmentalist?

Bubba and HW - the inseparable duo. Only if Daddy would have lived long enough to travel the globe with these two.

I can run like the wind blows

Will he be a decorated soldier in the next India-Pakistan war?

From the AP:
"Cheered by thousands, a 4-year-old boy dubbed "India's Forrest Gump," who was nearly sold by his impoverished mother, ran 40 miles (65 kilometers) Tuesday to enter the country's foremost record book.

I loved running today. I can run as much as I want," the 4-year-old boy told reporters after the run, sitting bare-chested but appearing tired.

Then he sucked his thumb."
