Time To Say Good-Bye?

Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-FL) is back again, asking for advice on how to say good-bye to the Rubber Stamp Republican Congress stamp.  In today's episode, he asks folks on the street in front of the Capitol for their thoughts on a send-off that is appropriate.  Rep. Meek is a member of the fabulous 30 Something Dems Working Group in the Congress, and it seems the 30 Somethings are having a little trouble letting the stamp go.

Let's help them, shall we?

You can add your suggestions at the form that the 30 Somethings have provided or e-mail them at:  30SomethingDems AT mail DOT house DOT gov.  Or just add them into the thread below and we'll see that they get read by some inquiring minds.  Or do all of the above. 

For those who don't remember the Rubber Stamps (or weren't around for their debut), here's a great refresher video starring Matt Stoller of MyDD, wonderfully put together and hosted by the geniuses at PoliticsTV and Crooks and Liars.  Isn't Stoller adorable?

Rep. Meek — good one.  And the Boyz || Men?  Nice touch. 

Kudos to you and the 30 Somethings and everyone who put so much work into this Rubber Stamp Republican Congress campaign — and kudos to all of you who helped it along.  You know who you are, so give yourselves a pat on the back.
