It's Flag Day!


The Bacon Show hat-trick: Mini Artichoke Pizzas with Crispy Bacon, Pizza with Shrimp, Bacon and Artichoke Hearts and Bacon Potato Pancakes.

Excuse me while I wipe the drool off my chin.

The problem with Democratic leadership?
Quigley described Pelosi's first breakfast meeting with the freshman class. "Pelosi said you need to get re-elected. You need to be in your district for every art fair and event," he recounted.

But then, he said, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer declared: "We have a most extraordinary agenda . . . plan on being here five days a week."

"The freshmen were all staring at each other," Quigley said.
Nothing like a clear message. Yikes.

On the other hand, there's always hope with a GOP watchdog like this around:
The Kennedy-Dodd bill will pave sidewalks, build jungle gyms, and open grocery stores, but it won't bring down health care costs or make quality coverage more affordable," Enzi said. "In a time of record debt and deficits, how can Democrats justify the wasteful spending in this bill?"

We need to root out the waste, fraud and abuse that is driving up health care costs – not create a whole slew of new wasteful programs," said Enzi, the only Senator to serve on the HELP, Finance and Budget Committees, which share jurisdiction over health care reform.
We sure could use a few more guys like him on the Hill. The thought of all of those folks who've never lived out in the business world monkeying around with our money -- especially the healthcare money -- continues to give me the willies.

No offense, but it's about time. Some of us have been living that way all along, and quite happily, thank you.

(Somebody at I Can Has Cheezburger was channeling the unfortunate woman who just brutally slaughtered both America the Beautiful and The Star Spangled Banner, as well as describing the karaoke stylings of the guy in the apartment below me. Ouch.)

Oh thanks Les! I've been waiting to say that Kennedy wouldn't be alive if we had socialized healthcare!
