Jefferson and Hastert – OUT NOW!

UPDATE: Mac at Macsmind thinks Bush is doing the biggest rope-a-dope of all and I kinda hope he's right.If he is right, maybe Hastert can stay...if not...we return you to my original post: ***I want them both out! And Pelosi, too, since she's the minority speaker and she's in agreement with Hastert. OUT! They all deserve each other, and they all need to resign, and since they won't do it without pressure, I say we apply pressure. I don't actually know how we do that, but I'm sure others … [Read more...]
