As much as I hate to cite Drudgico, there was a nugget in a Ben Smith article that reflects the way the Senate Republican caucus functions. A description of Bob Corker (R-Tennessee) who has been less obstructive and dishonest than a Republican is supposed to be on financial reform:

…he’s a guy who’s willing to get down into the weeds,” said South Dakota Sen. John Thune, who is No. 4 in GOP leadership. “Because he immerses himself in that and understands it so well — the positions he adopts may not always be the ones that everyone else in our conference comes to.”

Someone who makes an effort to understand stuff comes to the opposite conclusion of other Republicans. Seems like a pattern of behavior, ignored by the villagers who cannot stop loving John McCain. Just try not to notice who is in the Democratic caucus while laughing at them.

But at least modern conservatism has come to stand for something.

Quote of the Day, Bonehead Edition



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 .
