Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi
Oh. Dear. God.
Did any of you have the stomach to watch Babs and Harry, and their response from a mortician and a real estate saleswoman with too many tucks?
I kept waiting for Mr. Rogers to get out of the grave and beat the living crap out of Senator Reid for the bad impression.

Tidd and JD ALERT!!!!
And now a special treat for my two genius friends who got me the answers for my wondrous bemusement which turned out to be nothing more than a play on the power and magic of nine (9). While I should have been able to figure this out for myself—once again I am humbled by how much I don’t know.
And now for the treat:
How to really score with a girl:
Come—on—that was really neat!!!!!!

When pressed on this matter, Mr. Eason grew a bit evasive and came back with that he didn't have any proof of this or, indeed, anything which would even indicate a theoretical possibility of such a thing happening.
You can read the whole report here. And CNN wonders why its ratings have tanked.
As an aside, one of the people who challenged Eason was Representative Barney Frank of
The Democratic anti-American all-stars:
Today, in the House of Representatives, there was a cerebratorial, ceremonial vote on H. Res 60, which applauded the Iraqis for their first democratic election over the weekend. No strings, nothing fancy, just a friendly resolution saying congratulations. You would think that a vote like that would be unanimous, wouldn't you?
Can you believe that there were eleven Democrats that didn't vote for it, and there were eight that specifically voted against the resolution? Here's the eight.

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
