Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I cannot believe this guy. He is the greatest thing to happen to the Democrats since FDR:

Judge: No Swift Ruling on Craig Request

I guarantee you that self-centered fucked up bastard will not resign. He has to be the epitome of everything wrong with the GOP today.

For some reason I find Irony in the phrasing of that headline.

If he stays, I wonder if the GOP will dare make a move to really put it in the headlines and kick the SOB out. I think when one considers the phrase "brings dishonor to the Senate", giving knob jobs to strangers in a shithouse has to be like, right up there. Hell, even Clinton had the grace to get to know the girl first. The guy has been accused numerous times of this behavior, pleads guilty to this behavior, and now he wants a pass? If he just manned up to it, you know, did more than give it lip service or a passing blow, if he simply took it in the chops and sucked up to it, I might have some respect for him, but instead he wants to lie his way out of it.

Next time I see this queer, I am going to beat the shit out of him:

Senate Passes Hate Crimes Bill; Larry Craig Opposes


Moments ago, the Senate voted 60-39 to end debate on the Matthew Shepard Act, which expands federal hate crimes laws to include violence based on a victim's sexual orientation, gender, disability, and other factors. The AP reports:

The Senate attached hate crimes legislation to a must-pass Pentagon spending bill Thursday, but opponents predicted it ultimately would fail.

"The president is not going to agree to this social legislation on the defense authorization bill," said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. "This bill will get vetoed." [...]

The Democratic-controlled House passed the same hate crimes legislation as a stand-alone bill earlier this year despite Bush's veto threat. That makes a repeat of 2004, when the Senate passed a similar amendment to the same bill only to see it stripped out during negotiations with the Republican-led House, less likely this time around. President Bush, who says the bill is not needed, could then be faced with vetoing the vast defense authorization bill containing the same provision.

The White House had no immediate comment Thursday.

Notably, Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID) voted against the legislation.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
