Specter, Powell, and Keillor
if you listen to what Majority Leader Frist had to say on yesterday's Fox News Sunday - it is abundantly obvious that the President and the GOP Leadership will not pave an easy way for Specter to recoop his squandered political capital following his ill chosen and ill times comments criticizing potential Bush nominees following the sweeping win of the President.Now that's how "hardball" is played in DC.
Speaking of hardball, comes news from the The American Spectator that Powell was fired! This along with the news of resignations from the CIA, prompted by the arrival of Goss for Tenet, looks like a consolidation of power and a rooting out of Clinton holdovers. About time, I say!
And Garrison Keillor, according to WorldNetDaily during a speech at Chicago's Rockefeller Memorial Chapel promoted a novel and totally fascist idea:
"I am now the chairman of a national campaign to pass a constitutional amendment to take the right to vote away from born-again Christians. [enthusiastic audience applause] Just a little project of mine. My feeling is that born-again people are citizens of heaven, that is where there citizenship is, [laughter] is in heaven, it's not here among us in America. ..."Mover Mike
"If born-again Christians are allowed to vote in this country, then why not Canadians?"
