Democrats and the Draft

Monday, November 20th, 2006

Rhetorical question of the day: why is it that Republicans are accused of wanting to implement a draft, yet the only members of Congress actively calling for reinstating said draft are Democrats? Isn't it ironic that Democrats use the scare tactic claiming that voting for Republicans means that the ...

Looks like the Abramoff scandal will be going into post-election overtime, with Democrats being implicated.

It's been a while since I have attended my district's BPOU meeting. After the election, I figured I had best not miss it. Glad I made it. After the general business of the meeting, including getting reports from my State Legislator, Pat Garofalo, discussion of what happened in the ...

Gingrich Leads in GOP Bloggers Straw Poll

Saturday, November 11th, 2006

GOP Bloggers is running their fifth 2008 straw poll for the Presidential Election. I am moderately surprised by the current result for first choice is: Gingrich leads at 26% Giuliani follows at 25.2% It is not a scientific poll, and I am not sure if there are mechanisms in place to filter repeat pollers(?). Here's ...

Kline For Next House Minority Leader

Thursday, November 9th, 2006

Evening After, 2006

Wednesday, November 8th, 2006

Election Night, 2006

It looks like it will be a long night here in Minnesota, and not a very good one. Fox News has called the Senate seat for Amy Klobuchar, and she is way out in front with 34% of precincts reporting in at this time (10:21PM). It is not ...

Election Day, 2006

Tuesday, November 7th, 2006

Somehow, I am not surprised. It is, after all, election day, and this kind of cr@p has been seen before.

Saturday, November 4th, 2006
