Someone better tell Michael Steele his time would be better spent getting certain liberal Repubs in line rather than redesigning the GOP website.
Funny how some want the prestige of being associated with the prestige of the philosophy that sets people free while voting with those ready to condemn your children and grandchildren to indentured servitude while setting this nation on fire.
Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe says she will vote for a Democratic health care bill, breaking with her party on President Barack Obama’s top legislative priority.
The Maine senator kept virtually all of Washington guessing how she would vote until she announced it late in the Senate Finance Committee debate Tuesday. Until then, she told reporters, she had not even let Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in on her secret. She told her colleagues: “When history calls, history calls,” even though she had some criticism of the bill.
That’s nice. I much prefer the phrase, “When being fired calls, being fired calls.”
And then there’s Lindsay Grahamnesty.
A top Senate Republican on Sunday announced his support for sweeping climate change legislation, disputing the “conventional wisdom” that says Congress simply cannot tackle the issue this year.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., co-authored an op-ed with Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., in The New York Times calling for action on legislation.
Kerry rolled out a Senate climate change bill alongside Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., late last month. A Graham aide said Sunday that the South Carolina Republican was not explicitly endorsing that bill, but stands ready to work with Kerry toward some version of legislation to combat global warming.
