Senator Ensign

I love this story, it really is "Elmer Gantry visits Vegas".  The old badger game, the wronged husband cashing checks, the pious Republican passing moral judgements as he fornicates his way through life.  I really look forward to each installment and I think the Pulitzer prize winning Las Vegas Sun is the new Times, except the Sun is not yet financially and journalistically bankrupt.  I'm going fishing... and maybe play some craps....

O.K. the same morons that protested Bush the Elder addressing schools, are the same morons protesting the morons that are protesting Obama addressing schoolchildren. There is room for deference and respect for the Office of the President of the United States. Unfortunately the morons on both sides cannot overcome their partisan impairments long enough to enter into a meaningful or constructive dialogue. I have decided that hypocrisy is the lifeblood of politics. We are a nation of rubes and I for one am going fishing.....

Lately I've been reading about financial contributions to politicians.  The public disclosure laws really show how sure these 'leaders' are of themselves.  The contributions to Al Franken's legal defense fund showed 2 donors from the state he represents, the remainder  being mainly from Cali. and NY.  One can only wonder.  Why is there more turnover in the Politboro, than in Congress?  Surely the word gerrymandering has been translated into Russian.   I long vaguely for the days of self imposed term limits wherein  citizen legislators served their country and returned to their home states and proceeded with normal life.  Now public service is merely a cynical career move, and leaving public service is a step into influence peddling and old boy network cronyism. I'm going fishing....

If you tell me that Karl Rove is unique to the Republican Party, you have told me one of three things.  1.You are a naive imbecile.  2. You are a true believer and a naive imbecile.  3. You are a liar and a true believer and a naive imbecile.  Part of the problem with political dialogue is that there is no dialogue.  The new liberal outcry about 'right wing town meeting tactics' is only a sad reflection of the politically correct shout downs and disruptions of the past.  If you are sure that Maddow likes the sound of her own voice less than Limbaugh and that one gasbag is superior to another. You are one of three things... I'm going fishing.......

I am afraid that very soon the history mongers will have old T.R. firmly ensconced in the Dem. party, he was after all F.D.R.'s cousin. If this is the case I might well ask them to adopt a former Texan spendthrift governor as one of their own also. As his politics actually resembled L.B.J. more than anyone else(spendthrift, foreign adventuring, moron). The recent popularity of Teddy is a wishful and narrow narrative of the man, light on San Juan Hill and the Badlands, heavy on Potomac Escapades. Had Roosevelt actually originated from the western Steppes he would surely have never been allowed to rise to the heights he did. That would have been crazy like letting someone from Alaska into the White House. The natives of the East Weddle understand Geocentric...I'm going fishing.......

Your fine feathered correspondent was recently escorted from the premises of the "Family" compound. Apparently word got out that penguins are diligent and faithful husbands and fathers. I am more than ready to reject monagamy to join the "CHOSEN" but the "No Jackass Penguins Clause" restricts admission to only regular jackasses, apparently. I'm going fishing..

I have long advocated the notion that the two parties are no different than the Crips and Bloods. They are for the most part criminal enterprises involved in extortion, money laundering, and state terrorism. Bush's war was the wrong war, in the wrong place, so Obama will fix that by withdrawing from Iraq and conquering Afghanistan. The Russians could drive there(in Trabants or Zils even) and they still got waxed. We are 10,000 miles away and have no chance. There is no nation to build, it is a kingdom of thieves and bandits. Where is the outcry over Obama's War? Don your colored doo-rag pick a side and lose because the game is fixed, and inmates are running the asylum, actually they have sold it on contract for deed to the Red Chinese (Gangster Disciples?) I'm going fishing-

It occurs to this bird brain that health care reform is not about health care reform at all. The dirty little secret is Medicaid, and the open ended gargantuan check that the Feds must write as a glut of boomers pensionless and tapped out meet the existing health care system obese and broke. The question then is why don't they couch it in those terms? Is it because of the link to Social Security and all the fear mongering the Dems engaged in on that issue? Health care my pin feathers, I'm going fishing.
