On financial reform, now the Republicans want to talk.
Maybe it had something to do with the Administration’s presser today in which they basically said that they feel “liberated” by the GOP tactics. I guess they’re going to nominate a liberal candidate to replace Stephens on the basis that the Republicans are going to oppose the nominee in any case. 30 years later, it sinks in to a prominent Democrat.
Are the Democrats getting a little too cocky? Apparently they’re taking up immigration reform in May.
In an unintended moment of levity, the likely Republican opponent of Harry Reid wants to return to a system in which doctors are paid with chickens. I shouldn’t laugh. I was literally given a chicken in return for legal advice some years back. And no, I didn’t report it as income. If I’m hauled away in cuffs tomorrow, you’ll know why.
Addendum: If you’ve been paying attention you know that moderate Republican Florida Senator candidate Charlie Crist fell behind his “tea party” opponent Marco Rubio in the polls for the Republican primary, so now Crist is pulling a reverse Lieberman. Republicans aren’t happy with him. In fact, they’re hoping to toss him into the pit of darkness where there shall be a weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Meanwhile, Rubio is facing an FBI investigation.
Second addendum: Bring a chicken to the doctor!
