  •  If he wasn't (6+ / 0-)

    then he was sure doing a good impression of a drunk guy. He was even more red than normal, and wobbling around and using wild hand gestures, eyes glazed over, etc. He wasn't exactly slurring his words like he was obviously sloshed, but he was rambling and mumbling and tripping over himself s bit. It sorta reminded me of seeing the best man give an impassioned wedding toast after having a couple of drinks: not falling down drunk, but definitely wobbly and unable to hold composure. I know that's not exactly abnormal for him, and in all seriousness he probably wasn't...but he sure as heck looked like he could have been. I wouldn't exactly fall out of my chair with shock if some sort of evidence surfaced that he was.

    I'm sure he was just drunk on Freedom and his Love of America.

    Immanentizing the eschaton is a *good* thing.

      instead of the federal Government, eh?

      It's time for Democrats to start using the rules to enact our agenda. Use every trick in the book! Playing nice helps us not at all.

          I've been looking around for you all morning. Just wanted to give you a little high five. Throughout this whole mess, I think I've seen you trying to get people to push for the best bill possible more than just about anyone :)

          It's certainly not perfect, but at least all of that calling and writing and everything else got us something to start with. I'm glad to know that we've got people like you on our side as we continue to try to make the best out of this, fighting for improvements, fighting for medicare for all, etc. etc. Lots of work to do, more work than ever, but I'm happy to take a second to send you a big thank-you, as I've seen you fighting alongside, trying to whip the troops into shape and putting positive vibes out there during this whole long year of ups and downs. Every time someone said "I'm not gonna call. My rep is so-and-so, doesn't matter anyway" you were right there with me giving 'em hell! Your ability to keep pushing on no matter what while keeping it positive without getting caught up in all of the petty sectarian bickering has really been inspiring.

          Thanks for all the hard work! You've got a great attitude, and I'm glad to know that you're out there :)

             Your kind words make me feel just great!
             I really do think the "People Power" has made the difference in this one, and will propel us all the way if we stick with it.
             Thanks again, and I'm glad you're out there too.
