      If Obama doesn't deserve credit for getting Bin Laden because he didn't pull the trigger, then Bin Laden doesn't deserve the blame for 9-11 because he didn't fly the planes.

      any state to the Rethugs, not even Nebraska.

      Sigless for the holidays. Because if you can't say something nice about someone, at least shut over the holidays.

        are we allowed to mention the phrase 50 State Strategy or is that officially on hiatus? because it's kinda been on hiatus for 3 years.

        From 2005 to 2008, sure. In 2012, they're facing a lot in the campaign finance world and without an idea of how to really effectively stop the Crossroads and other SuperPACs.

      Bruning doesn't strike me as very popular.

      I changed by not changing at all, small town predicts my fate, perhaps that's what no one wants to see. -6.38, -4.15
