      At heart, he loves Tea Buggery.

      What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

          It would have been nice if they had at least published a Chairman's mark for each cochair and gone through it line by line.  Of course, if there had been no effort to dump Specter, he might have won in the general against Toomey, who would not be then on the committee, goading them into a silly proposal with no chance of passage. Epic fail progressives.
