Can’t this guy see the writing on the wall? Mitch McConnell says he’s done. That isn’t good enough?
Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat from Nevada, returned from the Senate’s summer recess and made his first public comments on Craig’s sudden downfall.He suggested that Republican leaders judged Craig more harshly than they did Republican Sen. David Vitter, of Louisiana, who was recently linked to a heterosexual prostitution service.
“Everyone can see what they did with Vitter and what they did with Craig and draw their own conclusion,” Reid told CNN when asked if GOP leaders had employed a “double standard.”
McConnell disputed that notion, telling reporters there is a “substantial difference” between the Vitter matter, which took place before Vitter was in the Senate, and the Craig matter.
“The [Vitter] legal case was, in effect, over. And the only question was what was the attitude going to be of the Senate with regard to the admission that had been made,” said McConnell.
You bet there’s a double standard, and a substantial difference as well: Vitter’s scandal requires only one vas deferens. Craig’s required two.
Certain of my clients tell me that Northwest is the airline most likely to have delays or cancellations. Guess they’re running short of goats. If you like yours, leave it at home.
KATHMANDU Reuters – Officials at Nepals state-run airline have sacrificed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, following technical problems with one of its Boeing 757 aircraft, the carrier said Tuesday.
There was news today about 8 terrorists, alleged Al Qaeda members, being captured in Denmark.
At the time I looked at the State.gov website to see if there was a travel advisory, there was a link on the front page to where travelers could find out more information about travel to Denmark. The travel advisory page itself hasn’t been updated since August 9.
It was accompanied by this photo. Clearly, the State Department hasn’t gottenaround to updating their site yet, at least as of 135pm Central Daylight time today.
UPDATE:Viking terror rampages on, at least on the State Departement’s main page. The scariest part is when they bang their shields on the railings, bellowing war chants and demanding beer, ale, mead or wenches. And then they run out of breath and take a smoke break.
