  1. Nancy Pelosi, the wicked witch of the west, the DemocRAT gift that just keeps on giving

    Now THAT is an ALL-START LINEUP!!! Thanks to the Republicans, at least a few states are fiscally sound. The clueless Blue states run by DemocRATS (CA, NY, MA) are a financial disaster.

    Vote Republican for Fiscal Sanity. Vote DemocRAT for Fiscal Disaster.

    Gov-elect Susana Martinez of NM signs on as an at-large committee person. This is just wonderful. As a NM resident, in my opinion, she has a full plate learning to be a Governor of a state that has a lot of problems.

    Do Republican Governors do anything but meet, write books and run for President?

    They have to use our tax dollars to go to San Diego, CA? Seriously? Haven't they heard of Skype?

    Hopefully when all the GOPers stop patting themselves on the backs, and stop giving out high school leadership certificates to each other, they might actually get down to the business of governing ... ?

    BTW, Bobby Jindal will make a FINE Gala Chairman, I'm sure. He has quite the comical talking points ... who cares that everything he sputters out are all unfounded and complete BS.

    Just great. Palin endorsed Martinez, from my poor state, is going to have an even bigger head than she does now.

    Why do red states are in better shape financially than blue states? Does people ever question the way their state runs their government?
