Random ramblings from my beer soaked melon about politics, religion, sex, stupidities, nature, and any other subject that penetrates the haze. Sometimes crude and not for the faint of heart or people with normal intelligence, or an abundance of common sense.

CONGRESSONAL COUNTING
When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.
Mark Twain

The news this Saturday morning (when they can stop talking about snow in DC)is that there may now be 60 votes in the Senate for their health care bill.
The 60th vote is Sen. Nelson of Nebraska who opposed the bill until they said his anti abortion wording would be added. He was careful to point out that he would change his vote in the future if there is something he doesn't like added to the bill. Now I know that the Senate bill is useless. Nelson used to be an insurance company executive and then went on to be Nebraska's official responsible for regulating the insurance industry.

Old John McCain is still bitching about people being required to keep their rambling on the Senate floor within the time limits even though he was one who objected to giving another Senator extra time on the Iraq war vote.
It's the same kind of spoiled attitude he displayed on the campaign trail a few times. After watching the Senate a lot the last few months I see that it is a trait he shares with most of his fellow Senators.

There is not a peep out of Joe the Insurance company shill this morning. I guess when they told him he was out of speaking time he thought in meant forever. I like this video about him. It really captures his personality








Now I wonder who will be the next to say "Hay, I want special treatment too!" Because rest assured they are lined up waiting for an opening.
Of course the Senate is only 60 votes now. The Republicans have already cast their vote. Hell, 33 of them voted against the military funding bill this morning when they thought nobody was looking. You think they would have learned their lesson after voting nay on Al Franken's anti rape amendment earlier this fall.

I think that all the people in Congress, the House and Senate should be required to take Math reeducation. They sure can't count the number of people dieing every day as they delay and gut the Health Care Reform bills. All this we have 60 and we don't have 60 bull is really starting to piss me off. I have the perfect place for them to start the reeducation...









Of course the Count may be a little advanced for them, and the Republicans may boycot it because it comes from that Evil PBS network. You know, the one they tried to abolish back in the Dark Ages of the Gump. I thought about Romper Room but gave it up. I think it's off the air. I still worry about some of those guys watching shows with little kids in them though.

Then again as always I could be full of shit.
