The Lush Nagahyde Interior of Senator Jim DeMint

I thought that it was pretty funny when Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) started a rift in his own party by endorsing the ultra-conservative tea party candidates in critical congressional and gubernatorial elections and attacking the moderate wings of the GOP...

I thought it was amusing when Senator DeMint denied claims that he wasn't countermanding U.S. policy towards Honduras during a trip there, instead saying that he was just taking a break, "swapped out the ties and speeches for swim trunks and sunblock" with three male companions from Congress...

I got a chuckle when Seantor DeMint said that he would continue to block the confirmation of Obama's nominee, Erroll Southers, to oversee a division of the Department of Homeland Security that oversees airport security because he says that Southers would Promote unions, which are a threat to airport security and would support terrorists... [ 2 ]

But in light of the recent successes in the Senate regarding the health care bill, I'm still getting a giggle at his earlier declaration: "If we're able to stop Obama on [health care reform], it will be his Waterloo..." [ 2, 3 ]

Unionized TSA? What happens when they go on strike? Why, then, any bozo and his dog could come on our planes with their shorts rigged to blow.

DocZ: I'm still getting a giggle at his earlier declaration: "If we're able to stop Obama on [health care reform], it will be his Waterloo.

And the insurance companies are getting an even bigger giggle, watching their stocks rise as the public option they feared goes on the ash heap. By November 2010 when health care costs continue to rise it won't be seen as Obama's Waterloo, but his Midway, the turning point that was only understood months after the fact.

Um, I hate to tell you, but we in the Communication Workers of America have been working with Al-Qaeda since the 1980s. Where do you think we get all our opiate products from? CVS?

The obvious solution to avert potential unionization of the TSA is to forbid employees from using black Magic Markers and cardboard placards.
Aaaaah, it's refreshing to see modern politics at work.

"Republican Party veers closer to lunatic fringe" - how's that for an 'elephant in the room'? This is what comes from giving Glenn Beck a national audience!

There would be nothing wrong with a unionized TSA or anything for that matter. Government unions typically cannot strike. If they do, it is called a "wildcat strike"--is illegal and they are fired.

There is no reason to hold up this TSA nomination because he may allow the employees to unionize--which, by the way, is the right of every American to form and join a union.

Unions aren't the enemy here, it is DeMint and his cronies.

Ah, yes, the GOP, last bastion of good old cracker boys. I hear his middle name is "Crow." If someone can sign up enough voters with brains in his state to vote for someone with brains....

Well done, Dr.Z! Happy New Year!

Teresita: Unlike those timerous Republicans, I am not frightened of terrorists. No real American should be. We can stand up as a country to any threat, including al Quaeda.

Teresita: I guess that you're insured! What about all of the people that aren't? :o)

Sunshine: Happy New Year, Laura! ;o)

James: **sigh** If finding Republican voters is the answer, then we are in real trouble. ;o)
