On a 68 to 31 vote, the Senate confirmed the appointment of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. The Republicans voting for her were Lamar Alexander, Kit Bond, Susan Collins, Lindsey Graham, Judd Gregg, Richard Lugar, Mel Martinez, Olympia Snowe, George Voinovich. The others handed the Democrats a very good campaign issue among Hispanic voters. Your Republican Senator is prejudiced against you. The dumbest thing is the wasted angst. They knew from the beginning she would be confirmed. So why did they alienate Latinos in a losing effort?
When "Jake" was chosen to head evangelism efforts in TEC, he deleted his blog and started an official blog. After many petitions to leave it up even if he didn't post, he relented. Now that severe, and somewhat thoughtless, budget cuts at 815 have been implemented, Terry Martin is job hunting. Fortunately he has restarted his blog. It's fun to see the clan gather again in the comments.
I hope the people I know who haven't left the Republican Party understand how foolish and stupid they look, and IMO are, given the behavior of those who are doing their best to keep Americans from learning anything intelligent about health care. That goes for my brother and several friends at church. The disruptive people are evil, unAmerican, unChristian, unethical, uncivilized and unbelievably rude. I'm glad I left the party years ago. I'm sad that so many people I thought were intelligent haven't.
For Margaret and Joel who are true disciples ministering to the people on the poorest Native American reservation in the US. And especially for Margaret who has more funerals in a month than most priests have in several years. And thanks for allowing the children to call her Grandma. She is the best possible person/priest in her position. For Peg and Jim. For all those who believe that guns can solve our problems. For our dysfunctional Congress. For Christ Church Meadville. For R and D especially for R. For me. For Ward. For Bro John. For Jim, especially. For those in the church who are distressed. For A as she deals with dysfunction. For Ginny. For Amelia. For Julie Anne. For Danny. For Amy. For J's mom. For Art and Mary. For rain in California. For Jeri. For Caleb and those who research RA. For J and D. For Tim and Ruth. For Ted. For VC and N. For Lee. For S and P.
