Little Al Franken Whines For Help

Franken doesn't trust those he wants to represent so he's whining for help from the Democrat controlled U.S. Senate led by Mr. B.O., Harry Reid.
Al Franken’s (D) campaign may ask the Democratic-led Senate to intervene on his behalf to allow some disqualified absentee ballots to be counted in his quest to unseat Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.).

Senate Leader Reid Offended By B. O. In Washington

It's funny, I don't recall remarks like this when I worked there. Oh, there were low-life staffers that sneered at tourists and those seeking help when they visited, but did so behind the visitor's backs. To the visitor's faces they were all smiles, then they returned to their side of the aisle to pontificate about their love of the working people to their bosses. I never heard a member stoop this low.

Reid: We won't smell the tourists anymore
The Capitol Visitors Center, which opened this morning, may have tripled its original budget and fallen years behind schedule, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid found a silver lining for members of Congress: tourists won't offend them with their B.O. anymore.

"My staff tells me not to say this, but I'm going to say it anyway," said Reid in his remarks. "In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol. It may be descriptive but it's true."

Punch Happy Harry is weirder than hell and an offense to all.

Government - Citizen Disconnect Grows Larger

Consensus emerging on universal healthcare
The prospect of bold government action appears to be accepted among players across the ideological and political spectrum, including those who opposed the idea in the 1990s.

Everyone agrees that we need a nationalized system of healthcare run by the government except the patients, Americans.

Health care for all. Health for none.

A Year's Salary Worth Of Bauble For Michelle Obama

Barack is working his magic to bring change to the workers of America and he's offshoring $30,000 worth of his love to prove he is as one with them.

Barack Obama to buy rare £20,000 rhodium ring for his wife to say 'thanks for your support'
Michelle Obama is to receive this £20,000 thank you from her husband for her support during the election.

The Harmony ring is made of rhodium - the world's most expensive metal --and encrusted with diamonds. It is being hastily made by Italian designer Giovanni Bosco in time for January's inauguration ceremony.

Only about 25 tons of rhodium are mined each year, mostly in South Africa, and as a result its price is typically around £5,000 an ounce.

Now all those capitalists will have a guideline with which to gauge their spending.
