I received the four page The Gibbs Report today and thought for sure this was a joke, but I told my wife wait a minute...this is Shelley Sekula Gibbs. Anyway she pledges, while her time in Congress (one holiday week), to work for Conservative values before the real Congressman, Nick Lampson, takes the seat he won a month ago. Seriously, she plans to take on issues such as tax cuts, securing our borders, Nasa, Ellington Field, medical reform and the uninsured while you and I are opening Christmas presents and getting drunk with family. We are so proud of you Shelley...this is money well spent as long as it's not money that belongs to my district.
Shelley, here is to wishing you a Merry Christmas and many more laughs from you,our lovable congress-woman over this holiday. cheers!

Governor Rick Perry has been named Texan of the Year by the Texas Legislative Conference, according to conference Advisory Committee chair Robert Howden.Visionary transportation plan known as the Trans-Texas Corridor? More like visionary land grab of the people!
Perry will be presented the award on Friday, March 23, at the conclusion of the 41st event. He will be joining an array of prominent past honorees since 1974 that includes First Lady Laura Bush, President George W. Bush, Barbara Jordan and Lloyd Bentsen.
The Governor has also offered a visionary transportation plan know as the Trans-Texas Corridor which will be a topic of the conference on March 23. In addition, passage this past summer of property tax reform was led by Perry and will also be a panel topic discussion at the conference.
Tell that to the farm and home owners of Texas.
Only in Texas this does this kind of absurdity continue to happen.

62% disapprove of the way Bush is handling his job as president. His highest disapproval rating to date.
42% approval handling terrorism.
41% approval handling economy.
28% approval handling the situation in Iraq. That's 70% disapproval! And the fucktard continues to tie this mess with the war on terror as he did again today in what some would call a speech.
67% oppose the war in Iraq. another all-time high.
11% support sending more troops to Iraq. Makes you wonder what the The Decider needs more time to think about for the new way forward or whatever his catch phrase of the month is. People are just sick and tired of this shit.
66% want changes made as soon as possible and not to wait wait several weeks before making those changes. This one is one that has me scratching my head. Wait until early next year for a new plan as many more of troops are badly injured or killed. Disgraceful!
Now as the Democrats take control of both houses in January, how will they take control of GW Bush? Only time will tell.

The Hill: How does our ongoing legal battle with Ronnie Earle fit into this?
DeLay: I have no idea. We’re going to test the waters. Since I’ve been out of Congress I’ve been absolutely amazed at how supportive people have been. And also how hateful others have been. In fact, yesterday we were up on the blog for just an hour and we had over a hundred comments of the most nasty comments.100 comments that were just mean, nasty and vulgar. They used the Ronnie Earle thing saying I ought to be in prison being raped by somebody. You know, that kind of stuff, when they have no clue what the Ronnie Earle thing is and I’ve been indicted for rules that don’t even exist. But that doesn’t seem to bother the left, I’ve been convicted, I’m in prison and being raped.
Hey Tom, you want to practice picking up soap.
"Ciro's story is the American story. Coming to America at a young age from Mexico, he faced the struggles that many immigrants face. However, with his characteristic tenacity and perseverance, he overcame them to become a dedicated public servant.
"During his time in Congress, Ciro was a champion for our nation's veterans and a voice for fiscal responsibility. He was an able chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. His victory last night is another opportunity for him to work on behalf of all Americans, not just the privileged few. He is committed to progressive values and will be a powerful voice for America's working families.
"The people of San Antonio have joined Americans from coast to coast in sending a clear message to Washington: it is time for a New Direction." - Nancy Pelosi

The importance of the blogosphere in shaping and motivating the current conservative movement is unquestionable- not only has it served as an important tool in breaking through the liberal MSM clutter but it has helped to keep our elected officials true to principle.Eek! Spooky huh? Well his blogging attempt is short lived (75 minutes) after his first post was abruptly removed due to the huge response from his raving fans. His first post went something like this:
This blog is meant to further the online discussion in the marketplace of ideas.
I have created this blog in order to provide Americans with a new meeting place where such opinions and viewpoints might be better shared, discussed and debated; a place where conservative and traditionalist Americans might speak truth to power and to one another.Thanks to James he was able to save the post with all 111 comments before it was removed. You may have to wait awhile...the popularity of this post is more than Blogger can handle.
In all honesty, I did not fully realize the impact or potential of the blogosphere until very recently, when Red State gave me the opportunity to post some of my observations in the wake of the recent midterm elections.
America has spoken!!

Five op-eds in Sunday's Washington Post may set off an intriguing debate, pro and con. On the front page of the Post's Outlook section, famed Columbia University historian Eric Foner proposes George W. Bush as the worst president in our history -- and author Douglas Brinkley disagrees, but very slightly: He thinks Bush only ranks as poorly as Herbert Hoover.
Another historian, David Greenberg, believes that only Nixon was worst. Meanwhile, Michael Lind pegs Bush at #5 --from the bottom. But Vincent J. Cannato, a historian at the University of Massachusetts, cautions: "Today's pronouncements that Bush is the 'worst president ever' are too often ideology masquerading as history."
The Washington Post editorial page, ironically, has been a strong backer of the Iraq war from the beginning.
Only daddy can save me now.
