Larry Craig’s Gift To Democrate Larry LaRocco

I am all for exposing hypocrisy no matter what the party affiliation is, but I’ve got to say that the GOP has the market cornered on this one. As the GOP runs away from Craig, they have stripped him of his committee seats. It’s time for Larry Craig to go.

Gen.Pace May Urge U.S. Troop Cut In Iraq

The GOP wall of support for the Iraq War seems to be crumbling. Gen. Peter Pace has jumped on Sen. Warner’s band wagon to suggest that Bush withdraw the troop. If all of these GOP supporters had gotten on the bandwagon with the public and the Democrats months ago, we would have saved […]

GOP Plan To Steal California In 2008

The GOP has conjured up another scheme, rig the Electoral College to steal the 2008 presidential election. It appears that they are going to screw around with how the electoral votes are counted, or should I say divided. That’s right divide. The Electoral College votes in California would be divided by Congressional districts, […]

Walter Reed Lab Documents Found in Trash Bin

You really have to wonder when the screw ups are going to stop. We are talking about the government, so I guess the answer is never. I can’t seem to remember the last time I read a positive story about Walter Reed. It would be improper to break with tradition so the shoddy […]
