The nays of Texas are upon us

UPDATE: Wouldn't you just know that the cranky Republican congressman who yelled "baby killer" while Rep. Bart Stupak was talking last night was from....Texas? He's been outed as Randy Neugebauer," but he's now in the apologetic mode. He says he directed that screech at the agreement reached on the bill by Democrats, which, of course, directly involved Stupak,a hard-line pro-life pol from Michigan. I guess the question now: Is there anybody at all in charge these days deep in the heart of Texas?

MORE: A Christian radio broadcaster, who happened to arrive on my car radio scanning for some decent music, , was insisting to his audience that Stupak was a Marxist or socialist who supported ultra-liberal legislation, anti-abortion notwithstanding. But the minister reassured the listener that he personally didn't care about capitalism, but only the Kingdom of God through Jesus Christ.

FINALLY: Has anybody seen anything about Rush Limbaugh heading for the airport to emigrate to Costa Rica, which he promised to do if the health-care bill passed? And Rush never lies.

Did you see the Newt quote in the Washington Post?
"by passing comprehensive health care legislation, Democrats will have destroyed their party much as Lyndon Johnson shattered the Democratic Party for 40 years with the passage of civil rights legislation."

Wow! We should really regret that one!

Losing an election is hardly more important that changing the country for the better.

Poor Newt. He keeps trying to score a touchdown without the ball in his hands.

No sign of Rush leaving for Costa Rica. He'd look better in Gitmo. Don't you think waterboarding would look good on Rush? I do.

TimJayFitz,

You need to check your facts, the Washington Post retracted that quote they attributed to Gingrich. He was referring to LBJ's Great Society policies, not civil rights legislation.

Don't let the truth get in the way of a good smear.
