    It has seemed in the past that the Republican Party has kept thier disagreements in house out of site of the common viewer, but after last weeks Rush's comments about carrying the water and this AM's comments of Novack there seems to be some major issues as to how this party is operated and led. The Martinez thing, complete with his comments about how he is an author of a amnesty bill, makes one think there is not a lot of consensus on how to proceed.

    WASHINGTON -- The depleted House Republican caucus, a minority in the next Congress, convenes at 8 a.m. in the Capitol Friday on the brink of committing an act of supreme irrationality. The House members blame their leadership for tasting the bitter dregs of defeat. Yet, the consensus so far is that, in secret ballot, they will re-elect some or all of those leaders.

    In private conversation, Republican members of Congress blame Majority Leader John Boehner and Majority Whip Roy Blunt in no small part for their midterm election debacle. Yet, either Boehner, Blunt or both are expected to be returned to their leadership posts Friday. For good reason, the GOP often is called "the stupid party."

    While an unpopular Iraq war and an unpopular George W. Bush were primary causes of last Tuesday's Republican rout, massive public disapproval of the Republican-controlled Congress significantly contributed. While abandoning conservative principles, the spendthrift House had become chained to special corporate interests represented by K Street lobbyists.

    ...That is the view that led Republicans to earmark a "bridge to nowhere" and hundreds of other projects in competitive districts, hoping it would save them on Election Day. The House has been a place where Rep. Don Young (a notorious Alaska porker) was setting national transportation policy, where the "Cardinals" on the Appropriations Committee established earmarking records, where the pharmaceutical industry had a pipeline to party policy and where even Speaker Hastert was making personal profits on an earmark. Maybe that's what Republicans want to retain, even in the minority.

    It is a good thing that just happened, I am now glad the democrats won, while Pelosi is causing a war within her own party with her ultra looney liberalism the Republicans will now "clean up" their party and yes, the Republican Party needed a Clean Up, then after Aunt Nancy has shown the country what a bunch of crybaby a$s holes these new democrats are and how dangerous they are for the safety of the country and after the taxes go up the Republicans will LANDSLIDE in 2008.

    I am beginning to love Aunt Nancy, when she gets finished with them the democrats will be out of business for fifty years.

    STOP THE WAR NOW-BRING THE TROOPS HOME-IRAQI'S HATE US THEY ARE NOT WORTH HAVING OUR YOUNG PEOPLE KILLED OVER-LET THEM KILL EACH OTHER-FREE SADDAM HE WILL BRING ORDER TO IRAQ IN SIX MONTHS.

    F-CK DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME.
