    Congrats GGail! This is a little of topic but just ran across this interesting read. CIA operative who tracked OBL and is dramatized in “0 Dark 30” given cash bonus but denied promotion after raid: http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/in-zero-dark-thirty-shes-the-hero-in-real-life-cia-agents-career-is-more-complicated/2012/12/10/cedc227e-42dd-11e2-9648-a2c323a991d6_story.html โ€ฆ This reminds me of what some jealous men are doing to Susan Rice complaining about how aggresive she is and doesnt have the right tempermant .

      We never heard details like this about marines in prior operations. Why are these squabbles being broadcast for public consumption? How does this make the troops cohesive and ordered – and how does this aid national security? This is ridiculous.

        Totally agree and now McCain is going to get a seat on the Senate Foreign relations com right before Hillary testifies on Benghazi since he is term limited on the Armed Service comm, which means he will also be their to raise hell if Susan Rice is nominated for SOS.

          Somehow, I don’t think anyone is crazy enough to give McCain a seat at the foreign relations table if they actually care about this country.

          • December 11, 2012 at 1:35 am

            I wish there were saner heads but Dick Lugar was the ranking member and he got a primary and lost, so seat is open and McCain is pulling seniority w/ John Kyl of AZ retiring. Also same reason he wanted a Special Comm to investigate Benghazi before Harry Reid shot him down he had no relevance left this way he could stay in the news. http://thecable.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2012/12/10/mccain_to_join_foreign_relations_committee_just_before_sec_state_hearing

              Then we’ll have to make our voices heard. There are only 535 people in Congress, and there are 300+ million people in this country. The likes of McCain and his right wing cronies in Congress can’t really just keep riding roughshod over the country, can they?

            Theo, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Kelly Ayotte, Chuck Grassley, Marco Rubio, Orin Hatch, Jim Inhoffe, and the rest of the GOP Caucus, are crazy enough to do just that. The question is: Will we have strong, sane, and principled Democrats to counter McCain if his GOP caucus decides to put him on the committee? This why I don’t think it would be a good idea to nominate Sen. John Kerry to be Sec. of State. We need him as Chair of the Senate Foreign relations Committee.

    Where is amk? Okay, hereโ€™s what weโ€™ve got: Trader Joeโ€™s 2010 Vintage Ale. โ€œDark ale brewed with Spices and Natural Flavours addedโ€. 9% alc./vol. What say you? It has been lying down for over two years, the cork looks fresh (cork on a beer?) and the dust is real! Shall we give it a sniff? (I donโ€™t drink beerโ€ฆ)

      Air conditioning??????????? Have you lost your mind! I’m freezing! I have the heat on and 2 sweaters…I’m a wimp. I hate to be cold…if it’s less than 80 around here, I have a jacket on. Really thought about bringing out the down jacket this morning….yes, I was that cold:)

      ‘ It cited examples including the transfer of $7bn between HSBC’s Mexican and US subsidiaries between 2007 and 2008, made despite Mexico’s reputation as a centre of drug smuggling. ‘

      let’s see…..2007, now who was in charge of the nation’s financial security in 2007 and 2008..?

    I am watching the 1947 version of “Miracle on 34th Street” . Is it me or doesn’t the actor that plays the NYC prosecutor remind you of John McCains boy friend Lindsey Graham? ๐Ÿ™‚

    During his appearance at Daimler Detroit today, PBO singled out a plant employee whose nickname is “Pretty Willy”. This Veteran of the Korean War had worked at that same plant for 60 years and had only been late once!!! Did anyone see if any of the press go a photograph of this dedicated union employee?

      These people became rich from spouting hate and the rwnj talking points. Many came from very modest backgrounds. Right wing talking was their path to fame and fortune. The right wing is a scam on uneducated, insecure people.

    Michigan State Senator Gretchen Whitmer Furiously Slams Republicans over Right to Work Legislation

  33. December 11, 2012 at 8:29 am

    Tell Nick Kristof we already know their is waste fraud and abuse in Social safety nets and some people are gaming the system.
    But, does he have to go on national tv and say that this may be hard for Luberals to admit but…
    I tell you, with everything the Republicans are doing, the Liberal media sure does get sidetracked and drops the ball, and sort of eats their own.
    I guess I am used to it.
