"Never did we think that this letter would bring money of this nature. And,
for the cause, Madam President, it is extremely good. Now, everyone knows that
Rush Limbaugh and I don't agree on everything in life and maybe that is kind of
an understatement. But without qualification, Mark May [sic] -- the owner of the
network that has Rush Limbaugh -- and Rush Limbaugh should know that this letter that they're auctioning is going to be something that raises money for a
Nice try Harry. Rush handed you your rear end. You're an idiot.
Pelosi Makes Political Misstep in Reversal on Armenian Genocide
The two meetings House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attended before a vote on a resolution labeling the massacre of Armenians in Ottoman Turkey a genocide foreshadowed the biggest political misstep of her speakership.
In the hours before a House panel approved the resolution Oct. 10, Pelosi was told in a tense meeting with Turkey's ambassador that the vote would endanger his country's alliance with the U.S. She had a warmer session with an Armenian cleric and representatives of Armenian-Americans, who have a large presence in her home state of California. In both, she made clear she intended to bring the resolution to a full House vote.
Since then, Pelosi, 67, has been in retreat. Her vow to bring the
measure to a vote outraged Turkey, which recalled its ambassador and threatened to cut off the use of its military bases to resupply U.S. troops in Iraq. On Oct. 17, Pelosi said it ``remains to be seen'' whether the vote would occur
after more than a dozen lawmakers pulled their names from the measure and some Democrats asked her to drop it.
The turnaround is the first major failure for Pelosi, who has successfully
muscled through the agenda she set out when she became leader of the Democratic majority in January.
An unlikely treasure-trove of donors for Clinton
Something remarkable happened at 44 Henry St., a grimy Chinatown
tenement with peeling walls. It also happened nearby at a dimly lighted
apartment building with trash bins clustered by the front door.And again not too
far away, at 88 E. Broadway beneath the Manhattan bridge, where vendors chatter in Mandarin and Fujianese as they hawk rubber sandals and bargain-basement clothes.
All three locations, along with scores of others scattered throughout
some of the poorest Chinese neighborhoods in Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx,
have been swept by an extraordinary impulse to shower money on one particular
presidential candidate -- Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton.
What is it with this crowd? Remember when aLgore got donations from monks sworn to poverty? Now big bucks busboys are hot on the heels of soft Hsu donations from orientals living shoulder to shoulder in empty houses on the west coast.
Must be a Mandarin money mandate for mama Clinton. It could also be their Boxer rebellion. Containable, but ugly.
