It’s a slow day for news, and that’s OK, because I’m tired.  I’m current with replies.  This may be my last post before Wednesday, because tomorrow, I have another doctor appointment way far away, and Tuesday is a volunteer day in the prison.

Today’s took me 3:45 (average 4:11).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

From MoveOn: This Astounding Conflict Of Interest Might Cost Us The Affordable Care Act

Now you know why I call him Teabugger Thomas.

From Washington Post: Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana thought long and hard before deciding not to run for president. Now, with Mitt Romney the likely nominee, he’s professing no interest in joining the GOP ticket as a vice presidential candidate.

Daniels says that if Romney came calling, Daniels would “demand reconsideration” and send Romney a list of people he thinks would be better suited for the job.

I think it likely that all the serious choices will bail, as Daniels and Bush have, leaving Switch Hit Mitt with an even more  vulnerable running mate.

From Huffington Post: Former Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Lieberman won’t say whom he’s supporting in November.

"I’m going to try to stay out of this one," Lieberman told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday." Lieberman, an independent senator from Connecticut who caucuses with Democrats, controversially endorsed John McCain (R-Ariz.) over Barack Obama in the 2008 election.

I bet he just wants to be an equal opportunity lobbyist, feigning allegiance to both sides of the aisle.  This SOB breaks the despicability scale.

  1. 3:30  I think we’ve left Patty an opening.

  2. I aced this one with  2:41. I’m shocked, I tell you!

    Clarence Thomas is the lowest form of life on Earth. He still thinks he is above the law.

    There are still a lot of RepublicanTs whp would jump at the chance to run for VEEP on the ticket with Mittens. The suspense is killing me.

    Joe has more faces than Mittens.

  3. MoveOn — Wonderful!  If Thomas does not recuse himself, can he be recused by the Chief Justice?  . . . not that the current Chief Justice would do that, but hypothetically?  It is not justice when a judge has a personal stake in the case as does Injustice Thomas.  Never did like the guy from the first time I heard about him during the Anita Hill incident.

    Vice President Slot — I take it that Daniels and Bush are not enamoured with Rmoney.  I would have thought that Bush might have taken it on with Daddy Bush endorsing Rmoney, or was the endorsement more for the sake of party unity?  I guess he needs someone desperate for the limelight and stupid enough not to know that Rmoney is the kiss of death.

    Lieberman — What last despicable act will this turncoat make before retirement?

    Cartoon — Ok, there goes supper!

    • I believe that a lot of RepublicanTs know that Romney will lose and it wouldn’t be great on their resumes if they lost as Veep candidate if they want to run for Prez in 2016.
