Could the Senate be going back to the GOP?

    Joe might win a GOP presidential nomination, or at least be on the ticket, if he did switch sides.

    I was surprised Lieberman didn't give that consideration. The problem was that, in the primary, he got support from Bill Clinton and some other Democrats. If he switched parties he would not get reelected.

    Also, the GOP has a better chance of regaining the House in 2008 than the Senate. The Republicans have a lot of seats to defend in a year which will not be easy running in support of the Iraq war.

    No way Lieberman would win a Republican nomination for president. Does anybody really think Lieberman could get more than 10 percent in the South Carolina Republican primary.

    You really think so, don't you? You really think mainstream GOP supporters would back a guy of the Hebrew faith? Yeah, I see that happening in Southern Baptist-dominated Texas.

    I don't remember Lincoln being a moderate. I thought he was going to save the Union at all costs and advocated the abolition of slavery -- saying that our nation could not survive as a union of slave and free states. So how exactly was Lincoln a moderate? Stephen Douglas was a moderate.

    Texas would vote Benjamin Netanyahu automatic citizenship and the election if the option was President Che Rodham.

    Simply refer to how Billy with the Wet Willy constantly got his ass beat trying to carry Texas and you'll see how delusional I am. Republicans there, like in most places, so loathe his woman that wanting her to run just to galvanize the party makes them feel ill for wanting her to win anything in the first place. It's like the effect of good medicine....let her win the nomination, then beat the shit out of her in the general election. Sorry for the woman-beating illustration, but it's politics, and it's dirty. And there will be no bruises, no blood, just a "Bill, I should have never ran. I dented your legacy and for that, I am truly sorry. In humility, let me deliver you Monica for a night of healing."
  9. It wasn't the House bank. It was 40 years of being in charge.

    40 years of gridlock.

    Check that. 40 years of making promises they didn't keep and manipulating voters for the sake of re-election. Republicans didn't learn from this and were swept out of a double-majority very quickly.

    Yeah, there's nothing more moderate than abolishing something in which nearly half the country was engaged.

    Completely delusional there.

    At least we know why Ellis is a Cubs fan. He thinks a swing and a miss is a home run.
  12. The Voting Rights Act (plus the 24th Amendment), the Clean Air and Water acts, making Plessy v. Ferguson obsolete, the 26th Amendment -- should I go on? Yeah, gridlock.
