The Great Auk.

“Democrats are the only reason to vote for Republicans.” – Will Rogers.
Will Rogers photographed sometime before 1900.
Rogers was a lifelong Democrat but he studiously avoided partisanship. He contributed to the Democratic campaign funds, but at the same time he frequently appeared on benefit programs to raise money for the Republican treasury. Republican leaders sought his counsel in their campaigns as often as did the Democrats.
We could use more of his kind today.
Snazzy Western ensemble!
Agreed about “more of his kind.”
We will certainly learn a great deal about this country in the next 12 months. It was a bit of a surprise, at least to me, that Sen. Bob Cornyn managed to undermine repeal efforts the same day as the signing of the health care takeover. I think the public could be in the mood for a serious repeal effort. If Republicans campaign on a “let’s nibble around the edges of Obamacare” platform, the Republican Party might make the extinct creatures list–below the Great Auk. Well below.
Indeed. I expect to be placed on a reservation for the quaint, absurd and nearly extinct any day now. What a sorry political party this has become.
Yeoman, perhaps you can qualify for some sort of stimulus grant as an officially Endangered Species.
This just in: After health care vote, Stupak 11 request billions in earmarks.
A day after Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., and ten other House members compromised on their pro-life position to deliver the necessary yes-votes to pass health care reform, the “Stupak 11” released their fiscal year 2011 earmark requests, which total more than $4.7 billion–an average of $429 million worth of earmark requests for each lawmaker.
There’ll be hell to pay.
Sunlight = the best disinfectant.
