AS ARROGANT AND CONDESCENDING AS EVER, CHENEY SAID WHEN DEMOCRATS ARE COMPETENT TO LEAD, HE CAN SING ON AMERICAN IDOL. Rove must have thought this one up.
Both fat boys can start singing. The opera, rather, the nightmarish horror show of the Bush years, can't end soon enough as far as I am concerned. Freedom. Oh Freedom. Sometimes I think I am a motherless child. OH YES...sometimes I think I am a motherless child......A song from the 1970's, by whom? Is it Richie Havens? Help me out here. LS

YAHOO NEWS.COM: "CHENEY SAID WHEN DEMOCRATS CAN LEAD HE CAN SING
ACCORDING TO TIME MAGAZINE (FOUND ON RAW STORY), IF CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS WERE HELD TODAY, THE GOP WOULD LOSE THE HOUSE
Naturally this is great news! Hopefully Democrats can keep up the pressure on this administration of incompetence and corruption. Anyone not fed up is either a nut or a blind, drugged or deluded loyalist.
By the way, the illegal immigration issue will become a damned if you do, damned if you don't one for the GOP. It already has engendered party infighting, according to a piece I read in the New York Times today on Texas Senator John Cornyn who is caught between a rock and a hard place on this. (He said conservatives scream at him about it when he gives talks to groups.) Recent legislation from the House has also fueled a massive protest in Los Angles yesterday (see below).
The GOP dilemma? How can the GOP placate the corporations with whom they are ideologically joined at the hip while not turning their backs on the Hispanic voters who do not want to be perceived as felons or the offspring of felons. It will be a dangerous and dicey dance indeed.
We need to monitor our own party’s stance on this. Will some of our members go Republican Lite or will the liberal wing of our party prevail (my soul mates, really, but I am a hardened realist who lives in a so-called red and very diverse state)? Or will our party not say anything at all? At times, I think there is power in not speaking.
I find it interesting that the “moderates” in the GOP (also known as the corporate cheerleaders) are trying to finesse the issue by saying it is OK for “guest workers” to hold “jobs that no Americans want.” What jobs are they referring to in a land founded and sustained by immigrants who have worked and work now like dogs, both day and night? Is this how the GOP will sashay their way out of this fix? Jobs that no American wants? Think about it, folks, think about it. And don’t let them get away with it. LS
TIME MAGAZINE ON "REPUBLICANS ON THE RUN
Here is a piece on The Huffington Post concerning the huge demonstration yesterday in Los Angeles protesting the passage of a bill in the U.S. House that would render millions of illegal immigrants as felons.

NOT SUCH ENCOURAGING NEWS: NOVAK SAYS ABRAMOFF IS CLEARING THE BUG MAN DELAY
This is NOT good for Texas Democrats. ON THREE WRETCHED CREATURES:
RAW STORY ON NOVAK, ABRAMOFF AND DELAY
BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER
I find it interesting that Tom DeLay, a so-called and self-promoted Mr. Squeaky Clean and Fine Christian Man has had so many indicted felons work for him. Odd don't you think for a God fearing, Bible believing dude?
I found this article on a top of advisor to DeLay, who personally pocketed funds funneled by Abramoff to a charity, on The Washington Post.com by Mr. R. Jeffrey Smith via The Huffington Post
