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?
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.

- 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"
