Where Are The Jobs?

President Obama has finally promised to give us his vision of a plan to increase employment in this country. Only problem is... his vision will not be forthcoming until the end of summer.

The question is, will the Republicans kill the plan by blocking it in the House or will they kill it by use of the unconstitutional fake filibuster in the Senate?

One way or the other, any program proposed by the President will be Dead on Arrival, courtesy of his Republican opponents.

The Killer Iowans

Well, the good people arrogant yokels of Iowa, who feel like it's their God-given right to be first in the presidential nominating process each and every four years, have murdered the candidacy of Tim Pawlenty.

It's sad that folks in the 47 states who for decades haven't hadn't a say in who the Republican nominee is, (Like it or not, the truth is that those few who live in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina get to decide for the rest of us who the Republican nominee is) won't get to hear Pawlenty's message.

As they have so many times before, Iowa's self-righteous rustics have saved all the rest of us from having to make the decision about whether or not a presidential wannabee had anything to offer the 95% of us who do not live in those three puny states.

On a positive note, it looks as though top-tier candidate Michele Bachmann is going to have to pretend to enjoy eating rube-food for at least a few more months.
