The Pool

On Tuesday (aka my birthday), the Senate will vote on Samuel Alito to take over Sandra Day O'Connor's spot on the Supreme Court.

Warren, we never picked our days. Time is running out!!

i was thinking more along the lines of days of the week, but since we got conflict (being tues and wed)i'll take my b-day and this wed. after that i'll shoot for mon 30th, and thurs feb 2nd, leaving u this thurs the 26th, fri 27th, and your picks of next week. let me know if this works out

if congress don't meet on weekends like i think, we should have fri (with the exception of the first) be neutral that way it's even. if we need beyond next week, we'll figure it out.

Works for me!

They won't meet on the weekend unless there is an emergency. They usually start sneaking away early on Friday and its seldom anything gets done on Friday afternoon.

All and all, they are a lazy bunch of bums with few exceptions.

Not sure but I think there is an election soon, possibly today...
last person i would have voted for was brian mulroney, the GST man, who singlehandedly sent the conservative party back to the stone age,but he played a mean game of golf with reagan, or was it bush?
Actually thanks to mulroney and his GST the liberals now have buckets of money, of which i still owe, about 30,000, but lets not quibble over 5 figures..LOL
excuse me now, I have to assume a false identity, and move to the far north...actually it maybe 40,000 now, bad managament...or was it bad habits, should have foregone the 42 inch sony T.V

"how do you get a gig like that?"

you need to do some serious ass kissing and have a beneficiary to provide the campaign money. then you gotta have sources to spread the word to vote for you. also, a PR staff who will guide you to look good in public with speeches and stuff like that.

First thing you do is have you integrity surgically removed! It helps if you are a lawyer or used car salesman.

What is with the new layout ??????

the old layout was crapping out on me. the sidebar links were pushed to the bottom, so i figured i'd change templates. i like the new look, except my Phish quote is a little light and i can't figure out how to change the color.

Alito's vote goes to the Senate tomorrow. Baring the unforseen, he will be confirmed.

The Democrats can only slow down the process and its up to the Republicans to put up with as much of it as they can stand.
