This 'Do Nothing' Congress Put In Less Days Than 1948 "Do Nothing" Congress

When Bill Frist called the end of session for the 109th Congress, it had managed to actually log less days -- not hours, but actual days -- than the legendary 'Do Nothing' Congress of 1948. No wonder they've taken the rather perjorative nickname and bestowed it on the modern session. Not only did... Sign in to see full entry.

Gates Confirmed Overwhelmingly By Senate

Robert Gates, Bush's latest appointee hopeful, was confirmed by the Senate today 95-2 to become the new Defense Secretary.

Did That Dumbass President Of Ours Actually Say That?

I've been perusing stories for the past several hours on Bush's visit to Vietnam and I cannot find a mention of some things he said yesterday. I would like to enlist the help of my fellow bloggers.

President Bush laid a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier today in Arlington National Cemetery at 11:00 a.m. He then praised the 24 million American military veterans alive today and the 1.4 million men and women currently in uniform throughout the world.

Novelist Jim Webb defeated George Allen in Virginia in their heated senatorial race, but by only a little more than 7000. There will... Sign in to see full entry.
