    Apologies if there is a House thread floating around, but damned if I could find it.

    From The Fix - Friday's House line - the first 25:

    I'm pretty sure this is the guy I heard the attack ad on yesterday that made my jaw hit the floor.
    Connolly, too corrupt for even Congress!.

    I assume the guy running the ad is just corrupt enough :)

    From the second 25:

    This is my district. Brown seems to have everything going for him right now, money, good polls. Everything. But the reality is this district is the reddest place in California. So even though the GOP nominated a carpet-bagging Southern Californian for this Northern California district, that "R" after his name is going to help him a lot. I expect Brown to take Nevada County by a large margin. The counties to the north don't count for much because there aren't that many voters there. The question is whether Brown can hold even in Placer County. And that I just don't know.

    If the signs around here count for anything, Cazayoux has it.

    Also, he's family ... so he better get it. :D

    I have met Mr. Dingell - he's a nice old guy. I'm kinda sad about this one. :eek:

    I have a hard time listening to what Waxman is actually saying. When I look at him, I just see a giant rat. I'm not using hyperbole to describe a politician's bad habits or anything - I mean the guy just looks like an actual rat. It's uncanny.
    I mean, he seems like a caring dude and all, but I'm shallow that way sometimes :)

    I always picture him processing Winthorpe into jail.
    That's PCP! Phenycyclidine. Angel dust! You ever seen what this stuff does to kids?

    but that's one of the things I love about democrats, that's why I am one - we don't all agree on one list of specific talking points - we have basic values, but different ways to go about achieving them.
    It's what the republicans have been making fun of us for for 20 years and said it would stop us from ever being in power again because we couldn't focus on one set of things to run on against them.
    I hope we never become narrowly focused like the last 15 years of republicans.
    You Go New Democrats, embrace your individuality - and that of your different constituents :)

    You need to hold off on that cheer. Neo-Hooverism is a recipe for disaster. Maybe in 2 years there will be a good, legitimate debate, but not right now.

    I knew it was over weeks ago, but now it's official. Yet again, my representative in Congress is a complete tool.
