Too much bite for a lap dog

Republicans are seething mad at newly elected Scott Brown to the former seat held by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy in Massachusetts.

They are raging and frothing at the mouth because of his decision to support Obama's jobs bill and calling him 'Benedict' Brown because he and four other Republicans ( Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine, George Voinovitch of Ohio, and Christopher Bond of Missouri) decided to represent the needs of the people instead of falling in lockstep with the party to defeat Obama on every issue.

To me this demonstrates that all Republicans are not evil and that there are a few willing to do the job that they were elected to do. But Brown is bearing the brunt of their collective wrath, although the others were also strongly criticized, because he is the most newly elected GOP Senator and they expected him to follow their " just say no " campaign.

It looks like Massachusetts might have gotten a Congressional representative instead of a party lap dog.

Gone for half a day, and I get rplaced as the resident Stooge expert.
dooley is semi-correct:
They were brothers, Moe, Shemp, and Gerome (Curly). He actually did have hair in one scene after Shemp replaced him because he had a dibilitating stroke.
He had not died yet when Shemp came back in.
Larry Fine was a violinist, on par with Jack Benny.
After Shemp got heart ailments, Joe Besser came in. A horrible waste. Then it was "Curly Joe" when they made full length, color movies.
Shemp and Curly died in their early 50's.
There you have it, right from the horse's mouth.

d7, why do I get the feeling that you've got some microfilm hidden in a watermelon somewhere?

By: sidneyames on 2/25/10 at 5:18

Because D7 is an authority on most everything; he's smart. And I didn't mean that sarcastic.

D7, I just finished watching American Idol on Fox. Gee, it seems they are STILL fundraising for Haiti. See, people won't forget. Give Americans credit. Give them a cause and they will rise to the top of the class. Good night.
