Groundhog Day

This year, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union Address fall on the same day.

As Air America Radio pointed out, "It is an ironic juxtaposition: one involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to a creature of little intelligence for prognostication.

The other involves a groundhog."

I am adding a link: Vichy Democrats. It is dedicated to outing and removing the ''Bush Lite'' Democrats who continue to support the war, tax cuts, CAFTA, etc. It is a useful, informative site with easy links to reward/punish the various politicians in our landscape.

It is run by a lawyer from Eugene, blog named ''Thersites''. The quote from his profile:

"The armies took their seats, marshaled into ranks. But one man, Thersites, still railed on, nonstop, teeming with rant, insubordinate, baiting the kings. Here was the ugliest man who ever came to Troy... Now he went for majestic Agamemnon, spewing his abuse: 'What are you panting after now? Your shelter’s packed with the lion’s share of bronze, plenty of women too, crowding your lodges. Best of the lot, the beauties we hand you first, whenever we take some stronghold. Or still more gold you’re wanting? How shameful for you to lead the sons of Achaea into bloody slaughter! Home we go in our ships! Abandon him here in Troy to wallow in all his prizes – he’ll see if the likes of us have propped him up or not.''

I know you were visiting my Vichi Dems site, which I appreciate. I thought I'd give you a heads up that we've got a new postfilibuster Game Plan up this morning. Ain't quitting till I'm buried, and maybe not even then. Anyway, please come take a look!
