    Congrats on first, GGail….. Dudette, nipping on her heels :) Forus50 (assume Yardarm) must be doing backflips today…… Will last until the Bears get pummeled by Green Bay tonight. ………Anybody notice the new feature on WP Reader HomePage? You can see the post (Click on the title of the thread) tweet, FB, and comment without loading TOD.

    Wish I was in the briefing room for this exchange today :)

      Thanks alot, LP. I was rooting for your Colts last night—-(mostly because “our” new baby was wearing her Colts gear for the first time and wanted her to get a win under her belt) :)– and now you’re calling for a pummeling of my Bears??? I even alerted you to get that game back on, they were coming back from the dead and had pulled ahead. Geez—that’s gratitude for ya.

      • November 4, 2013 at 7:04 pm

        UH OHHH…….. I thought you were also a windy city native. I saw your alert last night (responded) I was so superstitious I shut of the computer, and didn’t move until the Texans missed the 55yrd field goal to end the game. I have an unhealthy animosity towards the Bears….don’t know why exactly……maybe it was the ’09 SuperBowl we played against them……… I take everything back :)

      61 ayes, Portman was the last yes vote (I think it was Portman – they announced two yes votes together, so I didn’t quite catch it); nine didn’t vote at all – we won’t have a list for an hour.

    Good ol’ Harold Ford is on NBC news saying that Obamacare needs to be shut down for a period of time—-“60,90 or 120 days” till all the problems have been resolved. He’s always so helpful.

      Now this is where a DNC Chair show call Ford out, Gibbs and the rest of the weak SOBs who are always will to join the TBGOPers to attack pres Obama will claiming to be Supporter and Dems.

        I don’t. But they put D after his name and they say he is a supporter of the president. The people who watch the evening news are not Political junkies. They are people Dems need to come out and vote in off year elections.

    Blackhawks team captain, Jonathan Toews: “Just being around the president, I think he’s an amazing person. The way he speaks—he’s got everyone’s attention. He’s got that sense of humor….” Posted the Trib article earlier, here’s the Suntimes account of their appearance at the WH today.

      HLN per Mediabistro is undergoing another makeover.

      They are Not serious.

      Now if people could flee Mourning Joke on MSNBC…..now that would be a game changer. It has to go the CNN low ratings for MSNBC to pay attention.

    OK, I finally heard something new from Double Down—-Heileman on Hardball—–that among the multiple red flags that popped up in the vetting of Chris Christie for VP was a possible issue with a female companion which accompanied him on all his trips. True or not, at least a new tidbit I’d never heard before. Heileman said he stands by that reporting.

    I watch this 2 hrs show on Channel 238 on JFK and the Nov 22 1963 assassination. The conclusion was; there was another shooter. A SS mna by the name Hickey. He died in 2005. It was his kind of Machine gun that blew out the POTUS’ brain and skull out.

    What in the world? Why is Tweety just going bullying wild on Guy Cecil, a Dem operative, because he wants Cecil to admit that Christie is the Best and Most Adorable and Formidable Candidate of all time? Tweety wouldn’t let him get a word out, saying “You’re wasting my time!” ‘Admit it! Christie is the Greatest!’ Tweety was doing his best Christie as belligerent bully imitation. Ugly!
