Are we "the rich" yet? -- posted by Mom

Obamessiah and his disciples got me down.... got me low down.

As if the gazillion dollar bailout paid for by "the rich" a.k.a. ORDINARY TAXPAYERS isn't enough, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 14-5 this morning to send David Ogden's nomination for deputy attorney general to the full Senate for a vote. Praise be to five Republicans, Sens. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), and Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) who all managed to get it right (this time) by having the guts to oppose this ungodly and dangerous nomination. David Ogden is all this and this.

On a happier note, Senator Jim DeMint is a South Carolinian! Yay! And gets it right a lot of the time despite being a Republican.
