Bipartisan...I Don't Think that Word Means What You Think It Means

One of our U.S. Senators is up for e-election in 2010.  This weekend, she held her big re-up kick-off party.  Her theme is that she works hard to reach across the aisle and forge bipartisan legislation.  I wonder if he giggled a little when she spoke that crap.

Her lifetime rating from the ACU is 19.41.  That means that 80.59% of the time, she voted along party lines.  I would suspect that, since The One has been in office, her rating would approach zero.  I can't recall one vote where she didn't fall in line with Harry Reid.  Of our 6 reps/senators, she rated hext-to-last with only the commie who represents our capital's district lower (12.66.)

Of course, the people of this state will re-elect her because the vast majority of them don't pay enough attention to positions and votes to know what she is doing to them.

If 1 vote in 5 is considered "bipartisan," we are screwed.

Limbaugh and Coulter

I have to agree with Ace on this one.  Michael Steele must go.  His war with Rush Limbaugh has become a major distraction.  It has created a diversion behind which Obama has hidden the porkulus and Bank Bailout 2.0 (or is it 3.0; I can't keep up) and Hillarycare redux.  The media isn't exactly anxious to report on these issues to begin with, so this is perfect for them.  They can report on the red-on-red sniping and feel no guilt about doing so.

Ann Coulter needs to shut up as well.  Her spat with Keith Olbermann is one of the silliest things I have over seen.  Who gives a flying fuck what school anyone graduated from?  I know that Olbermann likes to wave Cornell around like a club, bashing those he considers to be inferior, but no one really cares about whether his diploms ia a "real" Cornell diploma or not.  Cornell grads can be as full of shit as the next guy.  Hell, I graduated from West Point and I can be a flaming asshole any day of the week.  Your alma mater has nothing to do with whether you are right or wrong.

I am no fan of either Limbaugh or Coulter.  I understand that there are many, many people who hang on their every word.  They advocate slash-and-burn, which strikes note in some people.  I don't know that they even believe everything they say.  I think they spout most of what they do for the publicity it brings them.  In this situation, their positions make them look petty and makes the Right look silly.
