Outside of passing unneeded legislation to solve illusionary problems, bickering is what congress does best. And in the case of health care "reform", bickering may be the best thing Congress can do.
"Now's the time to act, and I will not permit reform to be postponed or imperiled by the usual ideological diversions," Obama said.
Really, Sparky? I mean, just when did you get elected to the position of
I think you lie.
I think you're trying to give the appearance of being in control as things spiral down around you (link via Drudge). The American people are finally starting to wake up to just what sort of amateurish buffoon they foolishly elected, and the hangover from that party is going to be fierce. Say hello to Jimmah for me.

Yes, he does--note that his lips moved all the way through that speech.
(Edit, 9/10/2009 1035: Damned if I would have apologized to these asshats.)
One of the Timebombers got this via email and shared it on that forum. I like it so much Im going to lift it and share with ya'll.
We have enjoyed the redneck jokes for years. It's time to take a reflective look at the core beliefs of a culture that values home, family, country and God. If I had to stand before a dozen terrorists who threaten my life, I'd choose a half dozen or so rednecks to back me up. Tire irons, squirrel guns and grit -- that's what rednecks are made of.I like it.
You might be a redneck if: It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase, 'One nation, under God.'
You might be a redneck if: You've never protested about seeing the 10 Commandments posted in public places.
You might be a redneck if: You still say ' Christmas' instead of 'Winter Festival.'
You might be a redneck if: You bow your head when someone prays.
You might be a redneck if: You stand and place your hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem.
You might be a redneck if: You treat our armed forces veterans with great respect, and always have.
You might be a redneck if: You've never burned an American flag, nor intend to.
You might be a redneck if: You know what you believe and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.
You might be a redneck if: You respect your elders and raised your kids to do the same.
You might be a redneck if: You'd give your last dollar to a friend.
If you got this email from me, it is because I believe that you, like me, have just enough Red Neck in you to have the same beliefs as those talked about in this email.
God Bless the USA!
Barr said that "even if HAMP is a total success, we should still expect millions of foreclosures"....
You know, we could take this one and run with it. No matter how miserably you fail at a task, you didn't. You were incredibly successful, it's just that there's more work is to be done.
Oh, wait. This isn't new--liberals have been doing this for years. And here I thought I had made a great discovery. *sigh*

But if you should use a solid color stain on a deck, never try to strip it off, even using the good sodium hydroxide stripper. Just keep staining the damn thing.
Ask me how I know.
Those who think that he is somehow magically above ginning one up just to help out his agenda have failed to read your history. Clinton and Bush both did so; the Big O will do so if he can. After all, we can use that crisis to accomplish great things.
Expect to see piteous stories about the lack of health care for the poor and starving masses, the unemployed who are just dying to get into a hospital, and other major exaggerations of fact. A hospital or two suddenly going broke wouldn't be a big surprise. And don't forget that H1N1 flu, coming soon to a school near you.
Wash your hands, cover your coughs, avoid the obviously ill if possible and ignore the health care hype.
But the money quote comes from one of the bystanders.
Nearby resident Sean Wilson said he heard gunshots outside his apartment. He went out a short time later and saw police pull up and pull a cab driver out of his car and into a squad car.
Wilson said he saw a person in the front passenger seat of the cab and that he appeared to be dead.
He said police told him it was an attempted robbery. "It was an apparent robbery that went wrong," Wilson said. "Or, it went right, depending on how you look at it."Yes, Mr. Wilson, it did go "right"--the bad guy has now assumed ambient temperature. However, the Charlotte Observer, ever aware of its position as the fishwrap of record for Moscow on the Catawba, just has to throw in this tidbit.
In North Carolina, it's legal to kill someone in defense of yourself or another. In self-defense shooting cases, police and the Mecklenburg District Attorney work together to investigate and decide whether to press charges.
Note that it's legal to "kill someone", not to "defend yourself". Local officials have to get in the game as well.
Authorities have not said whether McClure will be charged. The Mecklenburg County District Attorney's Office will make a final decision.
I say the cabbie needs a medal and a free box of ammo in the caliber of his choice. I also anxiously await the lowlife's family protestations of how good a person he was and how he would never have hurt anyone.
Which, of course, our brave cabbie has now ensured.

We can only hope his old boss follows his lead.
