Ten Buck Friday Rides Again

Ten Buck Friday was a success in seeing a majority of Republicans elected to the Senate and Harry Reid being relegated back to the Recycling Bin of History.

But there is one Senate race still undecided in Louisiana and that's our man Bill Cassidy against Mary "I live in Washington, D.C. but I list my residence as my parents' basement in LA so I can vote here" Landrieu.

A runoff means more campaigning, more advertising and more expenses. While it is true that the DSCC has officially withdrawn their ad buys for their dubious candidate, I'm sure there will be a host of surrogates trying to raise money for poor Mary, so she doesn't have to go out and get a real job. (And maybe really move in with her parents this time!)

Well, he has gone from obscurity to You Tube phenomenon in record time. He's quoted by politicians of both major political parties and his name has become a verb overnight: Jonathan Gruber, Mr. Transparency is our choice for Time's Person of the Year award.

What if Obama Had Been President During the Civil Rights Movement?

Statement by President Barack Obama on Attack in Selma, AL

Source: WH, 11-18-1962

I strongly condemn today’s terrorist attack, the burning of a black church in Selma, which killed four innocent people, and injured several more. There is and can be no justification for such attacks against innocent civilians. The thoughts and prayers of the American people are with the victims and families of all those who were killed and injured in this horrific attack and in other recent violence. At this sensitive moment in Selma, it is all the more important for blacks and Klan leaders and ordinary citizens to work cooperatively together to lower tensions, reject violence, and seek a path forward towards peace.
Fortunately, our leaders back then did not suffer under a sense of false moral equivalency.

Dispatches From the eXtra Loony Left

Barbara Boxer...Bless her heart!
“What does XL stand for? To me it stands for extra lethal,”
-Sen. Barbara Boxer (Dim Bulb-Calif.) Barbara Boxer shows the same grasp of current events that she did in balancing her checkbook in the '90s.

She took to the Senate floor today to warn all of us stupid (implied, thank you, Professor Gruber!) people of the potentially fatal dangers of Keystone XL. One small problem with that. Keystone XL is an extension of the original Keystone pipeline that was built in 2009. (See: A Tale of Two Pipelines ) If the extension is "extra lethal", perhaps she would be so kind as to list all the fatalities caused by the original, still functioning pipeline?

Don't you think if there had been any problem at all with the original Keystone pipeline, that this information wouldn't be front and center in any discussions from Keystone XL's opponents?

In fact, the pipeline is safer for human life by reducing the possibilities of disastrous oil train wrecks and removes a multitude of oil tankers from the highways of this country, lowering the odds for highway fatalities or accidents which could cause contamination. There is even a net reduction of pollution, as a pipeline moves oil through the pipeline at lower energy costs than for trucks, trains or tankers.

We cannot, however, discount the possibility that Barbara Bouncer is one of the "stupid voters" that Professor Gruber refers to. He would know...
