Iowa Caucai

                    Ubiquitous Santorum -or- Iowaaaaa?

     Santorum is on everyone’s lips today.  And rightfully so.  Presidential contender Rick Santorum placed a very close and very respectable 2nd in the first Republican presidential contest.  9 votes and he would have won.  Having not nearly as much financial backing as Mitt Romney, he employed an alternate tactic and canvassed the hell out of Iowa.  Spending 250 days and stopping at each of Iowa’s 99 counties paid off.  In the group of right wing ideologues with cockeyed ideas, he is second on the list.  Congratulations!

Grim Weeper Reaps…

What Tea Party Sowed

      With the help of the Tea Party Republicans, Speaker of the House John Boehner suffered a humiliating and embarrassing defeat today; one that calls into question his competence as Speaker.  He was forced to allow a vote on the middle class Payroll Tax Cut, which Republicans in the House, after days of  rhetoric and vitriol, begrudgingly passed.    Imagine that… having to be pressured to help 160 million Americans save an average of $40.00/paycheck.  A government “by the people, for the people”?  Let’s not forget this come election time shall we?

After signing the extension this morning, President Obama is well on his way to his Christmas in Hawaii – Aloha Mr. President.
