November 22: Will we ever recover?
I am confident the nation will. Me? I don't think so. When Larry O'Brian talked to Ted Sorenson, or so the story goes, he said, "We will never laugh again." Oh. "Yes, we will laugh again," Sorenson responded, but "we will never be young again." I guess that sums up my generation. Such promise--such hope--and then JFK, RFK, MLK, Malcolm. No nation had it worse. And we have never been young again.
November 22. We all remember where we were and what we were doing.
James Carville: Did you have to say it? "If Hillary Clinton gave one of her balls to Obama, he would have two." Jaysus! You are not in junior high.
Now we have the anti-commonwealth crowd controlling Congress. Who cares if unemployment compensation runs out and millions suffer? Who cares about nuclear proliferation? Who cares about education or climate change? Who cares about war in Afghanistan and Iraq? Or hunger or poverty or evictions...
JFK and RFK and MLK cared. They would not tolerate this nonsense nor should we!
A word about Alan Simpson. He is a very nasty guy who hides behind humor most of the time, but now and then we catch a glimpse of the real SOB. He said, "I can't wait for the blood bath in April." Oh really, Alan? You can't wait for the country you love so much to collapse when the Tea Party-dominated GOP refuses to raise the debt ceiling? Can't wait? Whoa Nelly!

You're right on Simpson. No one who watched him attempt to destroy Anita Hill (along with that great Democrat Arlen Spector) can doubt that.

I am sick and tired of the dead Kennedys. A bunch of Irish mobsters who got respectable. Jack was a skirt chaser, shacked up with mob molls, and was dragged kicking and screaming into any kind of civil rights. Bobby was a thug as AG and it was nepotism in the extreme. Imagine if W had made Jeb AG. My how the liberals would have screamed.
Carville was right. Obungle needs to get a set. The fence posts on Pennsylvania Ave have a bigger set than he does.
Simpson is a jerk. In my perfect world states like Wyoming and Montana would revert to territorial status. They have fewer people now than they did 100 years ago and their influence far exceeds their importance. Barring that the federal government should defund any water, military, energy, and agricultural programs west of the 100th meridian and let all those tough independent westerners go pick s..t with the chickens. Same for the now GOP Confederacy.
Giving Simpson a platform to rant from was just one more Obungle mistake. Chalk it up and remember it in 2012.
