This is a follow up to a diary I posted last August here

The story is simple.  For the last two years or so, every time I've happened to need to fly out of the "high" numbered gates at Terminals A or C at DFW Airport, I've noticed Pete Sessions car parked in 1 hour parking.  It's not hard to spot Pete's car.

It's the car version of having a wallet with "Bad MF" printed on it.  You know it's yours.

This right here is Pete Sessions car.  The Texas plates with the House of Representatives lettering with House 32 on it sorta gives it away.  I've seen it parked here a billion times in the past.  This is Terminal C at DFW airport, it's the location from which American Airlines has most of their nonstop flights to Washington DC.  Pete's car is often in this very parking spot (I've seen it here a number of times).  It's the parking garage closest to the airport for the highest numbered gates for Terminal C.

What a night!  What a victory (or victories)!  Think about what we've gained over the last four years.  Over ten senate seats, dozens of house seats, governorships across the country and now the Presidency.  

Many of us are staying up late to watch the senate races come in.  We're staying up until they call INDIANA, North Carolina, and possibly Montana for the Democratic candidate for President.  Four years ago, the thought of a Democratic Indiana, North Carolina, and Montana was a dream.  It was just a dream....

Now it's real.  And in addition to those, we've got Georgia on the mind, and Colorado is safe in Democratic hands...  

The Senate class of 2004 comes up for re-election in 2010.  We have to continue to widen the spectrum -- make the field larger...

Which brings me to Texas.

Sad news:  Fred Baron has died

by Whiskey Sam

This is a short diary to let everyone know that trailblazing attorney, advocate for the workers, and one of the greatest fighters of corporate corruption this country has ever known has passed at the age of 61.

Rick Noriega's campaign just released their brilliant response to John Cornyn's joke of a campaign video.  Not only does Mr. Noriega re-play the majority of Senator Cornyn's catastrophically funny video, but he points out the outright falsehoods in "Bad" John's talking points.

I mis-read a time magazine issue from this week.  I was way wrong.  I should read more and bitch less

There was a news story this week that most of us probably missed, unless you were actively looking for it.  Over the last several years, Washington Senator Patty Murray has fought for the Ban Asbestos Bill in America which would bring an end to asbestos use in products in America.

Some of you might be a little surprised, but the use of asbestos in products has not been banned by the US government, despite the fact that hundreds of thousands of Americans have become sick and died from the variety of diseases caused from exposure to asbestos.  And the number of people who will die from diseases like mesothelioma isn’t decreasing, it’s increasing

Tom DeLay made to look stupid

by Whiskey Sam

Tom DeLay just got off the Today show..  He came on to talk about the GOP.  So when Matt went through the recent string of Republican scandals, Defendant DeLay melted down.  He resorted to blaming everything on Matt's media bias.  It became a pathetic show of blaming Democrats for what is a Republican news story

Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to do updates today -- very busy at work

Where Have All the Flowers Gone

by Whiskey Sam

I found myself thinking back about this war in Iraq and about how much things have changed.  Back in 2002/03, the conventional wisdom was that Saddam had WMD's and he would sell them to the first Tom, Dick, or Harry who wanted them.  We heard it all around, and the majority of the country believed it.  I didn't, many of us on this forum smelled out the bullshit when it was being presented for us.  

This diary is about how right the liberal community was on this issue, and how damn disgusting it is that we were.  But it's also about how right, how MUCH MORE right, the older Vietnam generation was about this war and how some of the Gen X / Y liberals failed to realize the gravity of their warning.

Does Any of this Sound Familiar?

by Whiskey Sam

Recently, there’s been a series of diaries detailing how the Bush administration is thumbing his nose at Democracy, both through his claims of executive privilege and through his executive order signings which set up a foundation for a quasi-dictatorship.

Link here for today’s excellent diary on the topic

Wait a second.....  quasi-dictatorship?  Through an obscure executive signing?  How could this happen in a democracy?  

Let’s look at this – because this has happened before.  Let us let history be our guide.

I posted this last night -- probably bad timing.  I'm re-posting simply to get this story some more attention.  This constitutes a "repetitive diary" -- so if requested I'll remove this topic right away.  

A couple weeks ago, Andrew Gossett became the 11th person on Texas Death Row to be freed by DNA evidence.  

This got me to thinking about the sad story of Kerry Max Cook.
