I just heard from Janet at Tom Lantos' (CA-12)campaign office. She was very proud that Tom has sent $200k to the DCCC. She was somewhat taken aback when I knew how much cash on hand he had ($1.4M as of 9/30), had nothing to say about the suggestion that Tom might send 30% to shore up close races, and said she'd get a response from the congressman.

Can anyone help me on the CA-12?
Tom Lantos for Congress Committee at 650-340-8066

The BooMan did the math and shows us who takes over after Nov 7
Charlie Rangel is the ranking member of the Ways and Means Committee. John Conyers, Jr. is the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee. Bennie Thompson is the ranking member of the Homeland Security Committee. Juanita Millender-McDonald is the ranking member on the House Administration Committee. And Alcee Hastings is the second ranking member of the Intelligence Committee and is rumored to be favored by Pelosi for the chair of that committee. That puts five African-Americans in line to be chairs of House committees. That's a third of the total from the last 230 years. And, more importantly, these are not minor committees. Judiciary, Intelligence, Homeland Security, and Ways and Means are MAJOR committees. House Administration is in charge of all the voting procedures in this country. This is a revolution of black power unseen previously in the halls of Congress.
if we get off our asses and GOTV!!

]=Let's Impeach Clinton!!

by genwah

From the San Francisco Chronicle:
The man to blame

Editor -- It pains me to say this, but it's time we impeached Bill Clinton. We now know that he's responsible for 9/11, our failure to catch Osama bin Laden, and allowing the North Koreans to obtain nuclear weapons. We can be pretty sure he's responsible for the mess in Iraq, our problems with Iran, the disaster in New Orleans and virtually everything else that's gone wrong during the last six years. He must be removed from office!
