My Give a Damn's Busted
Ever hear Jo Dee Messina sing "My Give a Damn's Busted"? Cracked me up, first time I heard it. Why does it call up left wing ideology?
You can say you've got issues.
You can say you're a victim.
It's all your parents fault,
After all you didn't pick em.
Well maybe Oprah's got time to listen.
My give a damn's busted.
(*Well let me get this straight now)
Your therapist said
It was all just a phase
A product of the prozac
And your co-dependent ways
So uhh ... who's your enabler these days
My give a damn's busted.

Energizing His Base
Speaking to a DNC forum in New York over the weekend, Dean indulged once again
in some of the undisguised loathing of the GOP that was such a hallmark of
Democratic Party activism last year. "I hate the Republicans and everything they
stand for," he told the audience, "but I admire their discipline and their
I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for. Not "I
oppose the Republicans and everything they stand for." Not "I'm determined to
beat the Republicans." Not "I reject the Republican message." No -- Dean wants
it understood that he hates the Republicans and all their works. That is the
banner under which he is marching as a candidate to lead his party. -- The Boston Globe
Better Government through Science
In the course of a discussion on filibusters and Senate rules, Washington's top
Democrat gave the 60 juniors a lesson in partisan politics, particularly about
the commander in chief. "The man's father is a wonderful human being," Reid said
in response to a question about President Bush's policies. "I think this guy is
a loser. -- Las Vegas Review-Journal

The Changing Role of Big Media
"There is... a deep anti-military bias in the media. One that begins from the premise that the military must be lying, and that American projection of power around the world must be wrong. I think that that is a hangover from Vietnam, and I think it's very dangerous."

Resurrecting John Forbes Kerry
Thumbs Up for '08 For the Kerry Clan
With Republicans scrounging around for an able successor to President Bush in
the 2008 election, Washington's focus is fast turning to an escalating battle on
the Democratic side between front-runner Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and 2004
nominee Sen. John Kerry . Whispers learns that Kerry is not just testing the
waters: He's running . "His family wants him to run again," says one pal. Proof
he's in: Kerry has added names to his E-mail list of 3 million, kept
johnkerry.com alive and kicking, raised boatloads of cash for friendly
Democrats, and moved to seize control of hot-button issues like kids'
healthcare, the environment, and support for military families. The Kerry clan
is also pushing the Clinton electability issue.
Hillary Clinton aide reportedly taped.
Kennedy in-law said to aid the FBI.
Boston Globe, April 24, 2005
Senator Edward M. Kennedy's brother-in-law secretly taped at least one telephone conversation as part of an FBI investigation into a former aide to Senator Hillary Clinton, according to published reports.
Raymond Reggie, a brother of Kennedy's wife, Victoria Reggie Kennedy, pleaded guilty Thursday on federal bank fraud charges in New Orleans.
Reggie's role in taping the former Clinton aide for the FBI surfaced as a result of that plea, the reports said. The reports quoted unnamed sources as saying Reggie worked with the FBI in its investigation of former Clinton aide David Rosen.
Reggie cooperated with the FBI in an effort to reduce his sentence, according to reports Friday in The Times-Picayune of New Orleans, the New York Post, and The New York Sun.
