The Tuesday ‘BushWhack’ing

Another day, another payment to a program that I will never receive money from.

  • Headlines you love to see in the NY Times: “Democratic Candidates Keep Outraising Republicans.” Things are still not going well for the gop in the fundraising race. In addition to the fact that the DCCC has a lot more money than their gop counterpart, the leading Democratic presidential candidates raised twice as much money as the republicans this summer. Hell, Hillary has $35 million in her war chest… (Now, if only the Dems would get off their ass and, I don’t know, DO something…)
  • Rudy Giuliani would be prepared if Aliens (the kind from outer space, not from other countries) attacked the U.S… uh, huh…
  • CNN reports that the gop presidential candidates are breaking Ronald Regan’s so-called 11th commandment and are focusing their vitriol on each other rather. (I, personally, do not think that there’s anything wrong with that. The in-fighting they are doing can only help the Democrats in the long run… and if that is indeed the case, I’m all for it…)
  • And have we mentioned? That a republican Senator may be joining the retirement cavalcade? A spokesman for Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (r-TX) will not seek re-election so she can focus on running for governor of Texas. (I know it’s trite to say this now, because we’ve been saying it so much, but it’s oh-so-fun… will the last republican leaving DC please turn off the lights. But in all seriousness, the republicans are hemorrhaging, and the Democrats need to focus their energy in beating them and, possibly, having control of the House, the Senate AND the White House after November 2008…)
