Hal Ginsberg: The Case of Steven Salaita
Doc Cleveland: Who Lost Scotland?
Not without further tweaking. I thought the same thing about the lame duck, but under the current iteration of the rules, it still can take 32 hours per nominee without consent. There's just not enough time.
Reid knows that under his Jan 2013 change in the senate rules the senate can confirm those pending appointments during this November's "lame duck" session.
Attempting to do so now
A Will consume valuable "campaigning" time for the many dems who are in danger, and
Upon appeal, I'll rescind the warning, but I'm citing you for contempt-of-blog for using an obscure cultural reference without a link.
i agree, over and over, insulting our intelligence with our money, they make me sick to my stomach. their ads have ruined many a mood/day, i actually turned off an nfl post game broadcast this evening for all the ad council crap.
But great Simpsons referencing!
the surge in gov't advertising began when nancy pelosi and harry reid became majority leaders in 2007. they're using our money to irritate us with a barrage of inane advertisements. you can't watch or listen to a football game these days without the off putting barrage of crap courtesy of...
In TR's day, Congress was only in session from December to March. If they were particularly industrious, they might extend the session until July.
But you make an excellent point.
TOS warning. Bad punnery.

In my book, I argue that TR's incrementalism was less effective at creating change than the uncompromising tactics of Sen. Bob La Follette and other Republican rebels. TR not only failed to appreciate the value of radical politics but occasionally undermined progressive allies, some of whom he...

You mean parties? ... No, I mean ...
Pasties? ...NO!! Panties!
Panties, if scanty enough,
provide their own.counseling.
(With my blurry eyesight this morning, I really did, at first, read panties as pantries... and that's...
This series definitely glosses over the ugly stuff. They admit that the conquest of the Philippines was "brutal" but they provide no details about the atrocities. Teddy's military actions in Honduras and Cuba aren't mentioned(I don't mean San Juan Hill; I mean Teddy sending troops into Cuba when...
When he was in office, Teddy was only moderately progressive, but that counts for something. His platform in 1912 was progressive as hell(I had read some stuff about it before watching the Burns series).
Cannon Boehner remarked, “ Roosevelt Obama, business found, had a bark that was considerably worse than his bite, although often his bark was annoying enough
There, fixed it for you...(sorry 'bout the O/T). Wider point, Oscar Wilde had it right "hypocrisy is the...
I always dream about panties?
Does that mean I need counseling?
His trousers were gone ...
