Some of the Most Critical Victories on Election Day 2006 Were
Delivered by Candidates Who Were Anything but 'Republican-Lite.'
by Tad Daley
"I'd rather vote for what I want, and not get it," said Eugene Debs,
"than vote for what I don't want, and get it." Debs, of course, ran for
president several times, never came close to winning, but put forth
insistent ideas on labor rights, civil liberties, economic justice, and
enduring world peace (he served time in jail for opposing American entry
into the First World War) that in time became part of the American
mainstream. Nearly a century later, progressive Democrats appear to be
promulgating a different model. We're voting for what we want, and getting

Cooulter Attacks American Pelosi

DESPERATE CONGRESSWOMEN OF HYSTERIA LANE
November 15, 2006
In the past week, there are 476 documents on Nexis heralding the magnificent
achievement of Nancy Pelosi becoming the FIRST WOMAN speaker of the House.
I thought we had moved beyond such multicultural milestones.
The media yawned when Condoleezza Rice became the first black female
secretary of state (and when Lincoln Chafee became the first developmentally
There were only 77 documents noting that Rice was the first black woman to
be the secretary of state, and half of them were issues of Jet, Essence,
Ebony or Black Entrepreneur magazine.
A New York Times profile of Rice at the time waited until the last sentence
to note in passing that Rice was "only the second woman, and the first black
woman, to hold the job." (In a separate column by me, it was noted that Rice
was the "first competent woman" to hold the job.)

Richard Viguerie: GOP Definition of Insanity - Keep the Same Leaders
and Expect Different Results
Friday November 17
MANASSAS, Va., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ --
The following is a statement by Richard A. Viguerie, author of
Conservatives Betrayed: How George W. Bush and Other Big Government
Republicans Hijacked the Conservative Cause, regarding the election of
John Boehner as minority leader and Roy Blunt as minority whip:
"House Republicans have decided to reward failure.
"Republicans are like the Biblical Jews who had to wander through the
desert for 40 years until that generation of corrupt and immoral
leaders had passed from the scene.
"And Republicans are not going to get to the political Promised Land
until they get new leaders who are principled conservatives.
"President Bush and congressional Republican leaders in recent years
seemed to have adopted a one-word strategy for governing -- BRIBERY.
"In essence they've said to the voters -- we've got money, you've got
votes -- let's talk.

To Righties Cheering Steny Hoyer

You may want to have a look at his voting record before you go declaring a
Compare it to Murtha's (far more conservative) voting record:
Crow all you want - on most every issue but the Iraq war - Hoyer is more
"liberal" than Murtha.
George W. Bush has made the terrorists stronger, their influence wider,
their numbers larger, and their motivation to attack the U.S. and other
western interests greater. He has repeatedly abused his authority and
violated his Oath of Office by turning his back on the United States
Constitution; thereby surrendering to the terrorists by undermining American
freedoms,values, and the very foundations of our system of government.
Supporting Bush is treason.

Republicans Whistling Dixie to Political Graveyard
by Randy Shaw
Former Senator and arch-segregationist Strom Thurmond must be laughing
from his grave this week, as his vision of a Southern -controlled
political party nears fruition.
After Republicans were routed everywhere but the South on Nov. 7,
Florida Senator Mel Martinez was appointed head of the Republican
National Committee, and Mississippis Senator Trent Lott was elected
the partys Senate whip.
The Republican Party has pursued a racially tinged "Southern Strategy"
to win presidential elections since 1968, and has responded to its
2006 failures by reasserting its claim to be the political home for
But Republicans paid a steep political price for their racist
immigrant-bashing this year, with Latinos voting Democratic in record
