Democrats say they are optimistic that they can regain control of the House of Representatives in the November election, an outcome that would mark a sharp reversal from the thumping defeat dealt to the party in 2010.
Personally the feeling I have had for months is that it is not only possible but probable and that the Dems will retain control of the Senate. I have zero data to back that up just a gut feeling.
Literally 5 seconds after I hit “publish” for this comment on DPUD’s post,
Embrace the doom. We’re so boned it’s not funny.
The endy has finally passed the funny.
I see this story linked at Hot Air(warning: Examiner campaign link, it always freezes my computer for a little while, it’s freaking annoying, I only click on accident anymore).
“Some people are much more into conspiracies than others,” (Ron V)Paul added, “If Santorum is an addict on conspiracies,
Okay, that’s fucking hilarious.
So there is some hope, at least I’ll still have something to laugh about as I cook my dog over my engineering text books.
…I was just wondering–How much does a gallon of gas cost in your neck of the woods these days?
Hope you’ve got some change left over for that mortgage payment.
Bummer, we really could really use a candidate like SMOD in 2012.
Heat of the Moment always makes me think of the South Park where Cartman sings to Congress so they legalize stem cell research, and then he uses fetal stem cells to replicate a Shakey’s Pizza.
Yeah…fucking bullshit. The Church caves every fucking time they make one of these threats, and am I seriously supposed to believe Cardinal George, the bishop who has made this threat, is going to follow through with it? Bullshit…Bull. Fucking. Shit. This is the same Cardinal who doesn’t have the stones to smack rogue priest Michael Pfleger in line, or remove him from Saint Sabina’s Parish, which should have been done years ago. If he doesn’t have the balls to stand up to Michael Pfleger why the FUCK should we ever believe that he’ll stand up to the federal government? Honestly.
Everyone is getting all fired up about this statement from the Cardinal, and I for the life of me do not understand why. The Church ALWAYS caves. ALWAYS. How many times do they threaten to withhold the Eucharist from politicians who are consistently pro-choice? Every election cycle. Without fail. And yet, how many dioceses actually enforce it? Not a damned one. Some individual priests will do it, and kudos to them. The previous Bishop of Scranton Diocese issued an appeal calling on Catholics to support pro-life candidates during the 2008 cycle, I know of at least one priest in town that refused to read the appeal, and made note of his refusal at mass.
And George Will had this dead on, and of course, I had it dead on, because I was saying the same thing before he ever said it.
And if it seems like I’m just bagging on the Church, I’m not, I grew up in the Church, I went to Catholic School for thirteen years, it’s not hatred that my reaction to the Church comes from, it’s extreme disappointment,
