    Amazing how the Obama Administration is just toying with the nincompoops on the Right these days. It's only a couple of months in, and the game can change totally over the next four years, but Obama is just making them look like incontinent psych ward patients at this point:

    Sanford gives in on stimulus, will seek funds for S.C. | McClatchy

    "Gov. Mark Sanford will comply with a midnight Friday stimulus deadline and become the last governor in the nation to seek millions of dollars in federal economic-recovery funds for his state, aides said late Thursday......

    ......Sanford's expected move is an implicit acknowledgement that he'd erroneously claimed for weeks control over only the $700 million in education funds, not over the entire $8 billion package.

    In fact, Sanford's failure to request the stimulus funds by midnight Friday would've imperiled all $8 billion reserved for his state........"

    When does the 6 inning mercy rule take effect??????? :D :D :D

    I've noticed that BO has gone from trying to be very bi-partisan to baseicaly dismissing the Rep. party. If you remember (and i'm sure you do) he was going out of his way to try to include the Rep. in any discission, it was Pelosie and Reid that were playing old style revenge politics. Now i can't remember the last time BO has used the word bi-partisan, hes given up trying. The pubs had their chance,now hes letting them twist in the wind as the party of........ NO. I guess he came to the conclusion that they were never going to make an effort to really work with him, and he doesn't need them.

    Sanford had his 15 minutes of national face time.. then he realized he was stupid for not accepting it.

    You can be against the stimulus but still want your part if the money's going to be spend anyway. I'm against the stimulus. But if the money is being borrowed/printed, we in CA might as well get our part instead of it going elsewhere. There's nothing inconsistent nor hypocritical about that.

    He should start a bank if that's going to happen.

    He should take the money, then spend it on the things the dingobats hate, open some "firing ranges" teach women to shoot, buy them all a gun, open some Baptist Churches for the poor people they love Jesus they sing beautiful Gospel Songs about him, use some of the money to put statues of GW Bush all over the state, buy pictures of Dick Cheney and put them up in all the Malls, buy Ronald Reagan tee shirts for everybody in the State, then change the name of every main street in every city to SARAH PALIN AVENUE.

    :D
