Conan Style Campaigning

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, in a signal that he'll mount an aggressive 2006 re-election campaign, has hired one of the White House's top political operatives to run his campaign -- a former California GOP strategist who has been described by Newsweek as a political "artillery shell" for his hard-charging tactics.

The governor's office would not confirm the hiring on Tuesday, but sources said Steve Schmidt, 35, is expected to be announced shortly as Schwarzenegger's 2006 re-election campaign manager

Ugly Is As Ugly Does

 

And now, the 2005 Loop Lawmaker of the Year: Rep. Jean "Mean Jean" Schmidt (R-Ohio). Schmidt narrowly edged former representative Randy "Duke" Cunningham (R-Calif.). Cunningham, who had been seen as a slam-dunk winner. Unfortunately, he was ruled ineligible after having resigned from the House for personal reasons and a bribery indictment.

Schmidt, though in town only a few months, locked up the prestigious award last month with that eloquent speech on the House floor calling Rep. John P. Murtha (D-Pa.), a decorated Marine, a "coward." This was promptly followed by a deer-in-the-headlights floor apology. She's not spoken on the House floor since her Nov. 18 disquisition

Spending Your Homeland Security Tax Dollars

Grant Goodman is an 81-year-old emeritus professor of Asian history at the University of Kansas.

He has had an ongoing correspondence by snail mail with a former professor of history at the University of the Philippines, where Goodman had taught on three separate occasions.

In early December, he was shocked when a letter arrived from her that had already been opened.

“The bottom of the envelope had been slashed open and then retaped with green tape,” says Goodman. “And it said, ‘Opened by Border Protection’ in great big letters. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security seal is on it, too.”


Some Responses to yesterday's question

Have you thought of any good decisions by Bush?

  • Not tugging too hard on Karl Rove's short leash and making an even bigger fool of himself than he already has.- Ron

  • He decided to be a Republican, saving the Democratic Party the historical disgrace of his presidency. - John

  • Eating Pretzels - Susan

  • Good decision to admit he spied on Americans and that he is dumb enough to think he has the right to continue spying, without court authority. I say keep the confessions coming, it helps the case for impeachment. - Ed, Oregon

Say Goodbye To Tom DeLay -- Song Parody (Sing to "Yesterday")
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Tom DeLay,
He's got troubles. They won't go away.
Jack's pled guilty and he'll have his say.
So say goodbye to Tom DeLay.

Abramoff,
He's pled guilty. Now Tom won't get off.
Yes, they've got him cold, though wingnuts scoff.
Can't wait to hear from Abramoff.

The rest of my song parody is here:
