    Looks like a nice letter.  Maybe too polite, but that's your call.  My R-Asshat has been in office for many years -- he's a Teahadist type all right, but the Tea Party hadn't yet been invented when he slimed his way into office.

    Joe Pitts, PA-16.  Scumsucker.  Slimeball.  Douchebag.

    And those are the terms I can write without using euphemisms.

    But I wanted to say, erm...it's toe the line.  You can tow a line if it's a barge on the Erie Canal about 150 years ago (although you probably had a mule to do the towing) but in this case, it's "toe the line," as in the line you are behind when bowling or shooting basketball or something like that.

    The line drawn in the sand between two opponents or enemies.

    Sorry.  That mistake just always makes me grind my teeth.

    To make the argument that the media has a left- or right-wing, or a liberal or a conservative bias, is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they use too much oil in their hummus. Al Franken
