Hubby is still in Lafayette and will be back tomorrow. He survived the drowning segment of the emergency survival training and claims to have had water in spots he didn't know he had. He went a bit beyond the requirement and did the bit for the certificate for the Gulf of Mexico, too. He's good to go anywhere now, I suppose. He gets to meet an old friend for dinner tonight so maybe he won't be so lonesome tonight. He called to chat 4 times between 4:30 and 9:00 last night. Bless his heart.
I watched a bit of Dan Rather's pity party on Larry King Live last night. I could only take a bit, though. Larry of course was fawning over him but he's still the despicable human he was before CBS canned him. And he still stands by his fraudulent story of the President's National Guard service. He never was one to let facts get in the way of reporting a story.
One of our Senators from Texas sponsored an amendment to end "catch and release" policy in a homeland security funding bill which would have specifically dealt with the loophole in the law concerning illegal immigration from El Salvador. Salvadorans now are the largest group, other than Mexicans, here illegally. This amendment was not brought up for vote, however, thanks to Harry Reid from Nevada and the Minority Leader in the Senate. He used a point of order to prevent the vote of Senator Cornyn's amendment. Yeah, and then good old Harry is shown accusing the Senate of having a "do nothing" Republican leadership. You gotta love an election year, don't you?
And speaking of an election year, the new ad put forth by the DCCSC, under the leadership of Rahm Emmanuel a member of the House of Reps from Illinois, and a former member of the Clinton administration, uses coffins and an unflattering photo of Tom DeLay, as well as video from 9/11 to bash the opposition. Classy, huh? Well I guess ole Rahm didn't expect the backlash. The Clinton's brought a whole new level of disgusting political gamesmanship to D.C. and Rahm keeps on keeping on. He's a vicious little former ballet dancer. They still haven't learned you have to give the voters something to vote for. Simply bashing President Bush isn't going to cut it this time around. The president isn't running anymore. He's not on the ballot. Maybe they could take some of that cash raised by MoveOn.org and buy a clue.
