Rudy Giuliani
When will the media expose his utter ignorance on foreign policy and national security issues? Info here.

Hilarious Gov. Jim Gibbons (R-NV) photos
Well, at least he wasn't getting drunk with college students.

Oops
Sam Brownback.

Note to Sen. Sam Brownback: In Packerland, it's not cool to diss Brett Favre.

The GOP presidential hopeful drew boos and groans Friday at the Wisconsin Republican Party convention when he used a football analogy to talk about the need to focus on families.

"This is fundamental blocking and tackling," he said. "This is your line in football. If you don't have a line, how many passes can Peyton Manning complete? Greatest quarterback, maybe, in NFL history."

[...]

Realizing what he had said, the Kansas Republican slumped at the podium and put his head in his hands.

"I'm not sure how I recover from this," Brownback said. "My point is we've got to rebuild the family. I'll get off this."

CA GOPers Drinking From The Same Poisonous Well of Corruption
First, it was Duke Cunningham. Then, we've got John Doolittle and Ken Calvert.  Did you know that Calvert was once caught with a prostitute?

McHenry is...
I don't know what nickname to give him. Take the poll below.  Anyways, Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) is a huge jerk.  IMHO, he likes to think of himself as his generation's Newt Gingrich, but he'll never become Speaker no matter how much the base loves him and no matter how much he loves the C-SPAN camera... a McHenry campaign aide has been indicted for voter fraud in North Carolina. To refresh your memory about what an utter little piece of horse manure this guy is, check out the videos:

Republican Profiles in Cowardice
So, we got word of some Republicans who had a "frank" discussion with Bush about Iraq. Of course, all those guys in Tuesday's meeting chose to vote against holding Bush accountable for Iraq.  If one of these Republicans is your representative, call his/her office and write a letter to the editor of your local paper. Also, don't forget to contribute to the appropriate fund at Act Blue.

Jokes:

  • Leno: "President Bush's approval rating has dropped to an all-time low of 28%. Here's my question: Is 28% still technically an approval rating?"
  • Conan: "Last night in this state of California, the first Republican debate was held at the Reagan Presidential Library. The candidates tried to distance themselves from President Bush. Apparently, the first step in distancing yourself from President Bush is appearing at a library"

P.S. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
