    Not surprised that the Ultra right-wingnuts are calling for Hastert’s head.  To them, he’s a liberal (Yeah, I know, I’m scratching my head too, but that’s what they think.)  Wash Moon Times is part of that group.

    Aha! So Boehner’s making his move to NOW be the Speaker..John-Boy, it’s looking like YOU are gonna be tarred with the same brush, so don’t get TOO strident in your calls for Denny to desert!

    Talk about a blatant and obvious power-play!

    Wow, isn’t it amazing how fast the party of Greedy Obtuse Perverts can get on message when live boys are involved?

    Anyone voting for a Republican is voting for terrorists, pedophiles, and marauders to run this country for another two years!
