No doubt some of the proceeds from the sale of Obama's senate seat were supposed to go to Tony Reszko's legal appeal fund as repayment in full of the $250,000 (there's that number again) that Reszko gave to Obama's campaign which he later had to give to charity.

No doubt Al Franken is packing his bags and heading to Illinois to set up house and see if the courts will award him either the Senate seat or the Governor's mansion.

I'm trying out a new Neocon suit. Does it make my ass look big?

No the back looks ok but the main talk around is that you just have to work on the squawk, not squeaking enough...........

In Texas, we do things big, so you get mass murderers.

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 understand the charges. I understand the corruption.

What I don't understand is why they arrested Tim 'Otter' Matheson.

Of course the smaller head would make your ass look big. But really, we just thought you were fronting for the new No Doubt tour with some kewl new gorilla marketing.

Huge.
