Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

05/24/2005: Leap Dobson...Leap...

Allocating my ten minutes to CNN for news this morning - I saw a piece of a very good interview with Ron Brownstein (LA Times) discussing the “deal” to prevent the Nuclear Option and save the Minority Right to Fillabuster.

Mr. Brownstein echoed my own sentiments (just a paraphrase here) that the Movers and Shakers on both sides of this Political debate really have the President to blame for refusing to consult with them over high profile nominations and make any attempts to choose candidates acceptable for both sides without this kind of partisan “drive over the edge of that cliff” scenarios.

Consistently GW has acted to polarize these Senators precisely by his refusal to be that “Uniter-Not-A-Divider” campaign sloganeer he promised.

This continues to fall right at the Prez’s little feet as he may now have to face an pre-emptive strategy to get votes for an over-ride of his “threatened Veto” of the Bill to ease restriction on the Federal funding of stem cell research. Maybe for once, Congress will show him he’s not been driving the agenda the American people support and expect out of their legislators…and are being woefully underserved in this, Our Foster-Grant Pres.

As another note: Somebody please invite James “Spongy” Dobson to that Highest Point of the Highest at the site of the Sermon On The Mount…and Tell Him to Take A Flying Leap!!! Or Just give him a Good Shove!!! Then he can take his Un-Christian principles right to the bottom where they belong.
