footerConsensus, Conshmensus! Who cares what they think? Don’t the bloviated, ass stubborn, Republicans remember that they got trounced back in November? The American people booted them out of office because we wanted something new. We, yes, wanted change. If John ‘tanning bed’ Boehner does not get out of those klieg lights we will begin to fry. The economy is tanking more each day. More people are losing their jobs each week. The only thing the Republicans know about is tax cuts and they are sticking to that mantra no matter what. I say, shut them down. We do not need to win a popularity contest with those fools. We need to start working on this sinking ship. Read Bob Herbert today. He says it best when he writes “When the G.O.P. talks, nobody should listen”.

PS. Yesterday was Bill Kristol’s last column in the New York Times. Buh Bye, Bill. Guess your opinions were not ‘fit to print’.

–  Watch Rachel as she reports on the GOP’s opposition to the stimulus package and debunks some of their recent talking points about the nonexistent CBO report.

–  Confirmation hearing updates. Yes, Timothy Geithner was confirmed yesterday and now he needs to get his Superman costume out of the attic. He has a lot of work to do. But what is up with Tom Daschle’s hearing? It has been 46 days and he still is on hold as is Hilda Solis, Labor Secretary-designee, who had her committee hearing on Jan 9, but her confirmation remains on hold by an anonymous Republican. Hmmm – who could that be? And then there is Leon Panetta? What’s up with that? Do the Repugnants want to be known as the Obstructionist Party?

–  Whoa! FIle this under, ‘it’s about time’. The House Judiciary Committee chairman subpoenaed former White House adviser Karl Rove on Monday to testify about the Bush administration’s firing of U.S. attorneys and prosecution of a former Democratic governor. Will he show? Will he fight? Stay tuned.

–  Meanwhile, up in Minnesota: By the end of the day yesterday, the first official day of the trial, the 3-judge panel threw out the tainted evidence — photocopies of rejected absentee ballots where the Norm Coleman camp had either removed written comments from election officials as to why they were rejected, or left in text added by the campaign itself — and allowed Coleman’s team to subpoena and then re-submit the actual ballot envelopes. Hang in there, Al.

–  I know I said that I would not obsess on this, however:

–  NY is losing a Congressional seat in 2010. It could get very very interesting. Gov. David Paterson’s appointment of Kirsten Gillibrand to the Senate could have the unintended consequence of dissuading one of the leading statewide Republicans from challenging her in 2010. Rep. Peter King’s Long Island seat was rumored to be on the chopping block. Stay tuned.

On Gillibrand, I’m wondering — with her NRA and “mom with young children” bona fides, is she being brought to national prominence to be an anti-Palin spokesperson should the need arise in 3 years?

Who’s tougher? Gillibrand that shoots her turkey or Palin that puts hers in a funnel and slits it’s throat? Pick Flick!
