The Way To Talk To A Republican

This is among the many reasons I like New York Governor Elliot Spitzer:

'I am a fucking steamroller and I'll roll over you or anybody else,' the Democratic governor told Republican Assemblyman James Tedisco in a private conversation last week, the New York Post reported on Wednesday.
And yes, when asked by that same right-wing Riefenstahlesque rag whether he indeed said that, he stood by it.

He wins the new award we are giving out here, The Jim Webb.

I think we may just give out the monthly Joe Lieberman too. I'll let you figure out what that's for.

Ooh, ooh, me! Me!

Joe Biden! Or is it Hillary for keeping options on the table?

But wait, guys. Spitzer used the F word?! Hey, what about bipartisan spirit? I mean, the GOP certainly never uses language like that to refer to...

Oh never mind. I can't even keep a straight face in writing.

God, it's nice to see someone with some spine in this party! I hope he considers a Presidential run the next time around. He's as good as anyone running this time, except maybe for John Edwards, who, ironically, is also loudly championing dignity for all Americans in the face of low wages and lack of universal health insurance.

Yeah, Hillary is dangerously close to winning the first cliffschecter.com Joe Lieberman award.

I am going to spend my time highlighting the Spitzers of our party, because in the face of tyranny, this is how you behave. When the Republican Party is again run by sane people (if that ever again does indeed occur) then there is room for reaching out.

After impeachment, recall, stolen elections, calling the capitol hill police on Dems, and the rest, thinking you can work with most of these cretins is beyond naive...

Oh and ohdave, I know I have seen you here before, but I like to welcome everyone to the site at first. So welcome, and please keep coming around and contributing!

Is the Joe Lieberman for spoilers? Is it for turncoats? Is it for chicken hawks? Do you have to have recessive chin genes to get it?

You have to have a brown nose, bad judgment, and convince yourself that you have a following.

I think I just described most of Congress.

Elliot Spitzer is one of those rare public figures who I admire more and more as time goes on.

I love this idea, Cliffy.

I actually ADORE Joe Biden - he has great ideas - he just doesn't know how to actually say anything the right way!
Hilary leaves me cold but if it's between her and a current rePIGlican, I'll have to vote for her.
If we're still mired in Iraq and things are as bad as the last few months, I predict a Democratic sweep.

Oh how I hope the gloves come off with a lot of Dems in the next 2 years. ...if they can just resist the urge to shred each other during the primary season.

Speaking of...

CLIFF, help me out buddy. It's gonna be a LONG, LONG year here in the Palmetto State, my friend.

In just the past week, I've had to endure report after report from our state media licking the boots of the likes of Rudy and Romney. They're so weak. I guess they are just jazzed for the chance to speak to someone besides Jim Demint and Lindsey Graham.

And my word...The conservative bloggers are all a-twitter. And our statehouse membership is falling all over themselves as well to go on the record for McForkedtongue. I guess nothing gets done again this year.

Please send me some hard-core Gangsta Dems like SOON! Rustle me up a Jim Webb or an Elliot Spitzer just for a day PLEASE!

I can't take this for a whole freaking year.

Syd my friend. Yes, the Palmetto State is a tough one. I want to help. I used to go on family vacations to Hilton Head. I dig it down there.

Now that Fritz is gone from the scene we do need some Dems there who are willing to mix it up. Now I don't know about the local farm team, but I'm pretty sure if silly Lindsey keeps supporting the same ridiculous war plan as his friend McCain, we might just put the smack down on him rather soon...

And hey, at least you had Hodges. I am a New Yorker, and until last year we spent 12 years under the reign of the moron Pataki, not to mention the time philandering Rudy was in charge of my city...
