Governor Sanford promised to represent the people of South Carolina. When you are Governor, you do not get to drop off the face of the Earth for four days. He failed in that promise and should step aside.
Why he vanished does not matter, how he vanished does. You can take time off, but you need to be able to be contacted in case of emergency.
Governor Sanford should do the honorable thing and step down.
32. ELIMINATE DRIVER CARD PROVISION
Eliminate a provision of Joint Finance that would require DOT to issue a driver card for applicants who are unable to provide proof of legal presence in the United States.
STRUCTURAL BALANCE EXCEPTION
Assembly/Senate/Conference Committee: Specify that the current law requirements that revenues exceed expenditures in each fiscal year would not apply in 2010-11.
Mr. Pelican Pants was kind enough to pluck these 10 quotes out his dusty memory or some obscure data base.
How many of these can you name without googling?
1. How was the coffee cake? Uhh…store bought. F*** her.
2. Does Barry Manilow know you raid his wardrobe?
3. Okay…but, I could burn down the building.
4. I shall serve no fries before their time.
5. I don’t know if that shake’s worth five dollars but it’s pretty damn good.
6. I can knock a hundred dollars off that Trucoat.
7. Crazy is on the bus.
8. Your mom went to college!
9. Madness is like gravity – all you need...is a little push.
10. And like that... he's gone.
And don't for get this - gotta love Java.
You people are just so out of touch.
So when you tax US businesses into oblivion with all the "green" policies, whats to stop them from going to Ghana, Mexico or China (good thing they don't have the pesky Kyoto accords to worry about)?
This plan seemed to work well in Spain though, huh?
The best example of the left's hypocrisy is that they will "allow" an oil-rich country like Iran to develop their nuclear program for energy purposes, but seem to have a HUGE problem with the oil-rich home country developing nuclear power.
I guess its because we don't have a handle on nuke's like Iran does.
And we all get screwed while Ted keeps his waterfront view pristine.
Wake up, people.

Democrats own this secret deal in every way. This has been the most ridiculous budget process I have ever seen.
OMG!-LFB analysis of #wibudget: $4 Bil spending hike $2.1B tax hike $2.9B borrowing $2.3B deficit & prop taxes can go up $1.5B
We are so screwed.
Confrontation Erupts Between Representatives Waters, Obey on House Floor
An altercation erupted on the House floor Thursday evening between House Appropriations Committee Chairman Dave Obey (D-Wisc.) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.).The incident stemmed from Rep. Obey's refusal to fund an earmark that Rep. Waters requested, sources told FOX. Waters specifically wanted federal money set aside for an institute named after her. Obey, who is skeptical of many earmarks, has long refused to fund any more "monuments to me." The institute in question was named for Waters before she requested the earmark.Upon Obey's refusal, Waters insisted Obey reward the money instead to a school that could serve as a conduit to the institute, but Obey told Waters that wasn't acceptable and "became irate," said a source.Obey tried to walk away from Waters, but she continued to browbeat the Appropriations Committee Chairman and followed him around the House floor, according to reports."She was in his face," a source said.Other media reported that the altercation evolved into a "shoving match." Those reports could not be confirmed.Ellis Brachman, a spokesman for Obey said that Waters "accosted" his boss and "made a scene."Attempts to reach Waters for comment were unsuccessful.
Since when did Obey fall out of love with Pork?
[ “And to all those watching tonight from beyond our shores, from parliaments and palaces to those who are huddled around radios in the forgotten corners of our world - our stories are singular, but our destiny is shared, and a new dawn of American leadership is at hand. To those who would tear this world down - we will defeat you. To those who seek peace and security - we support you.” ]
***UPDATE: Yes,BO (the idiot , not the dog) on his election nite.
Maybe he "changed" his mind?
The lovely Mrs. RDW has had a JC Penney credit card for years. While checking out I decided I'd apply for one as well. My reasoning was strictly economic, I got an extra 10% off of our bill.
Imagine my surprise when my new JC Penney credit card came in the mail today. Upon opening the envelope I was greeted with the following:
Los Titulares de Tarjeta JCPenney reciben Ofertas Exclusivas durante todo el ano!
I understand one or two words there, I think they just asked me to go shop at Sears!
This will be THE Senate race to watch folks....
If only we had someone this strong to run against John Lehman. (hint hint Robin Vos)

Where did these come from? (No googling!)
1) "Could be worse. Could be raining."
2) "I picked the wrong day to give up drinking” (No, not Airplane)
3) "A flute without holes is not a flute. A donut without a hole, is a Danish"
4) "Wake up! Time to die!"
5) "Watch that first step; it's a doozy."
6) 'There are things about me you wouldn't understand...things you couldn't understand...things you SHOULDN'T understand...'
7) “I never dreamed that any mere physical experience could be so stimulating”
8) “But the hearts of men are easily corrupted... “
9) “Sharpness is a state of mind.”
10) “It can only be attributable to human error”
And after Kim Jon Il turns Hawaii into an ash tray then what?
Health insurance costs as much as it does because of what providers charge and what government mandates.
Individual states issue mandated coverages that drive up the cost of health care. In essence the state requires health insurance policies to cover items that drive up the cost. If your state mandates things like accupressure and accupuncture your policy will cost more than states that do not require those items to be covered on health care plans.
This is just another example of government adding to the problem and then accepting zero responsibility for their part of the problem. In Jim Doyle's world using joint and several liability standards that he has pushed for since the government is at least 1% at fault, the whole problem rests on their shoulders.

Mary Virginia Devine, 64 Racine
Congratulations Racine. You are proudly represented by Assemblyman Mason and Senator Lehman who are both cosponsors of AB 281.
What's that you ask?
Now he says the whole process has been transparent.
And what movies did these quotes come from?
- I am a vulgar man.
- You car’s uglier than I am.
- I hear no all the time it’s just more like no, please, no.
- I’m not mad, I’m actually impressed.
- Cut the crap, give me a drink.
- I’ll alert the media.
- One day a real rain will come and wash all the scum off the streets.
- Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
- Go ahead and search, you’ll never find it.
- We who are about to die salute you.

An important point he makes that some of us already thought is:
It’s important to understand that the opposing paradigm increasingly in ascendance here in the United States is also a religious paradigm. Liberal-progressivism is a socialist, statist paradigm, and socialism is a secular, materialistic religion. Because liberal-progressivism is a secular religion, there is about as much hope of reasoning with liberals as there is in converting Osama Bin Ladin to Christianity.
I also agree with him that our ONLY hope is education. Brewton writes:
We must teach the old paradigm to our children to shield them from the secular religion that will be taught to them in public schools and our colleges and universities. And we must reclaim the educational system to prevent liberal-progressives from using our schools as seminaries of socialism.
Brewton has echoes of Coulter and Levin. I like the way he goes beneath the surface to come out with a deep picture of things.
(The lobbyists probably prefer it this way.)
Any argument is more persuasive when made by a hot chick. Robert.
