From the article:


""There were no death panels in the bill ... and to encourage that kind of fear is just the lowest form of political leadership. It's not leadership. It's demagoguery," said Inglis, one of three Republican incumbents who have lost their seats in Congress to primary and state party convention challengers this year.


Inglis said voters eventually will discover that you're "preying on their fears" and turn away. "


THis is one of the smartest things I have heard.

Or have they realizde it, and just don't care?>

I'm thinking that they realize and just don't care. Here's Stephen Colbert's June "interview" with Inglis:

I think for a lot of people, it's all just a sport.

Okay, do you think that if we had never invented the 24 hour news channel it would be this bad?

Hey, me, too! Happy anniversary! It's our 15th and I've been busy packing. We are leaving for our cruise tomorrow. I'll see you all in a week or so.

I had the day from hell and didn't call anyone fragrant either (although I can name one person who now officially STINKS!!!!)


This kept me cheered all day:


Sitting with hubby and my 3 year old, telling jokes (most of which she doesn't get), I made this one up:


Q: What's the difference between daddy and a bologna sandwich?


A: Two slices of bread.


She not only laughed, but she said "Good one, mom.

You know if you look at what Obama has been campaigning for this past week alone, he is clearly wearing his shirt.

I think Inglis is correct about the pundits, however what do we expect from pundits?
