Not So Much

So the Senate thinks that they have a great plan.  And Rep DeFazio thinks he has a great plan.  Sorry, not so much.  They both suck and need to be voted down.
I've already called my Rep and Senator to insist that they vote the new crap down, as well as voting the old crap down if that comes up for a vote.
See me on the flip.

She really ISN'T dumb as a brick

All over the blogosphere I am seeing stories about how it's all over, "she" has lost.  There is no way for her to win.  The math, the math.  It's been over for weeks.  Well, you get the picture.
Then the denigrating and downgrading and Clinton hating takes over.  Who will tell Hillary?  Who is brave enough to tell Bill and Hillary that it's over?  It's been over for weeks but she just doesn't realize it.  Even her campaign says she only has a 10% chance of winning , so why does she keep running.

Obama/Clinton 2008 It's Time

Barack and Hillary, it's time now.  Your supporters are getting ready to reenact 1968 and that ain't good.  Senator Obama gets first place because he is ahead in pledged delegates and cannot be caught.  Senator Clinton gets the VP nod because she is the second most popular personage in the party.
I really don't wanna hear the whining from the supporters of either side.  This is how it has to go down.  We are planning for 16 years of Democratic government, so I don't want to hear how awesome Joe Biden, Jim Webb, Janet Napolitano or Kathleen Sebelius are.  NONE of them could defeat Hillary, so they don't get picked.  PERIOD.  The rank and file will be very happy with this, the candidates can deal with this and the nutcases in the blogosphere that can't deal with this can go hang for all the rest of us care.
Senator Obama, you need to make this happen by next week.  Senator Clinton, you need to make this happen by next week.
Together you're going to make history.

FISA Strategy That Will Never Happen

Thanks to Senator Dodd for the stance he has taken in this fight.  His sometimes supporters deserve some gratitude also.  That being said, the time has come for one voice. One Senator to decide that this is the ultimate fight and therefore the ultimate tools must be used.  The rules of the Senate allow one Senator to bring the body to a grinding halt if they so choose.  That Senator would face incredible pressure and wouldn't really be part of "the Club" after this was over but they could do this.  More after the break.

Dean for Governor 2008

Does anyone really believe that Gov. Dean will remain as the head of the DNC more than about 5 seconds after a Hillary or Obama nomination?  I believe that Edwards is the only candidate that could work effectively with Howard.  With that in mind, take the poll.

Surge Math

In all the talk of surging troops or escalation or what ever we are going to call this I have lost track of something.  The tooth to tail ratio in the U.S. Army is approximately 4 to 1.  That means for every combat soldier there are four support troops to get them in position and maintain them there.
So my question is, is the 20,000 troops all teeth?  That would mean coming up with around 100,000 soldiers.  Or is this 4,000 front line soldiers and around 16,000 support troops.  I'd really like to know how many soldiers we are actually talking about.  Anyone?

Ohio Marriages Illegal?

Ohio passed one of the most draconian "defense" of marriage amendments in the country.  Some of the results are overturning domestic violence charges against unmarried defendants.  My contention is that one of the unintended consequences of this law is to invalidate all marriage licenses issued since the amendment went into effect.  Why would I think that?  Follow me below the fold.

The Lieberman/Lautenberg Variation

Now that Joe has committed (once again) to caucus with the Democrats to organize the Senate, I think its time to put forward my own little solution to our "Joe Problem".  I freely admit that this came to me while reading a diary at Booman Tribune so thanks or curses to those folks depending on the reaction this gets.
If Joe keeps his seniority then he would be in line to chair Homeland Security which also includes Governmental Affairs.  Not so important if Joe controls Homeland Security but we want somebody to really investigate in the Governmental Affairs sector.  So my solution is to give Lautenberg his seniority back also and split the committee when the new Senate is organized and let Joe chair Homeland Security and Frank chair the new Governmental Affairs committe.  Thoughts anyone?

Hannity Radio Show Today - Lieberman only up by 5

Was listening to Hannity earlier today (don't ask) and was very excited to hear Scott Rasmussen say the race had tightened in CT.  If I heard him correctly he said the numbers would be released this evening but that he showed Lieberman up by only 5 to 6 points.  This puts the momentum with Lamont going into the final week before the election.  This is exactly the kind of movement the people on the ground have been predicting.  Our hopes for knocking off Holy Joe seem to be getting better every day.  Good Luck Ned!

PA-Sen Santorum Surging

According to a recent Morning Call poll (hat tip TDGoddard at Political Wire), Santorum is now within single digits of Bob Casy in the PA senate race.  Other recent polls still show Casey up by double digits.
With his known propensity for losing huge early poll leads because of his lackluster campaign style are we getting ready to see another Casey implosion?  We need to see some more polling on this race before we start hollering that the sky is falling.
Take a break from the Nedmentum and give me your thoughts on the Pennsylvania race.
