I’ll believe it when I see it

Rachel Maddow opened her show recently with this claim:

We can report exclusively tonight, that two major power brokers on the left have told MSNBC that they are encouraging a Senate strategy now, in which the leadership would revoke chairmanships and other leadership positions from any Democrat who sides with a Republican filibuster to block a vote on health reform.

Well, first, I’ll believe it when I see it. After all, there’s Joe Lieberman still chairing Homeland Security and what did he do? Oh yeah, run against the Democratic primary winner after losing a primary, whored for war as no war whore as whored before, endorse the Republican nominee for President, and appear at the GOP Convention to bad mouth the Democrats and their nominee. So clearly, this is a Caucus historically determined to enforce party discipline.

Second, how crappy and gutted and like Max Baucus bill will the product of their determined enforcement be, should they actually be so inclined?

I sure would like to be pleasantly surprised.


And in completely unrelated news, the international community thinks so little of America now that Obama’s President that they just awarded that internationally despised person the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
