If I need to explain to you why Reid's name is among them, sorry, you'll have to look it up. Beyond that, anyone notice the red initial after their name? Color their hands in the color of blood; "R" is what follows their name.
Glad to see a few Republicans waking up. Sure. Nice. Certainly you don't think the fact that you're up for re-election may have anything to do with your sudden change of heart and taking baby-steps toward ultimately RUNNING from these liars you continually handed your brains to? And I'm not even gonna TOUCH how you dealt with your conscience and in some cases, lack thereof. Don't worry. We see through it.
Keep it going, Sir Conyers. You have consistently been a moral, admirable leader. We are behind you and you have our support.
Senator Reid - can you possibly benefit from some speech coaching perhaps? The lightness of your voice doesn't match the gravity of your words. Pat on the back for ya though, but frankly, it sure took you a long time coming to growing "some," if ya know what I mean. But, I guess better late than never. I'll give you credit for that.
Frankly, though, if Whatever Is or Whatever Isn't out there, I personally think we're screwed. I think the timing's off and though it appears we're making some progress, it may very well be "too much, too little, too late."
And, uh, Whatever or Nothing? I've never hoped I've been more wrong than anything in my life as in this moment.
And remember this, my fellow Americans; it's something I feel like typing out tonight rather than post in my usual signature line:
"There is nothing worse than gangrene of the soul."
