It appears that the President of the United States will also forgo the proceedings in the Rotunda on Saturday in favor of staying at his ranch for another day.
Less anyone think my displeasure is reserved exclusively for the Democratic LEADERSHIP (Note: The Republicans on the junket are not a part of the leadership in the Senate. Those in the comments who have demonstrated their towering ignorance by not being able to tell the difference between the Majority Leader of the Senate passing on this event and two relatively unknown GOP members skipping out might want to deepen their thinking faculties a bit.) anything I said about Reid above goes double for Bush.
How stupid and ignorant do you feel now? Are you embarrassed to be shown up as an idiot?
Next time - try reading the post before you make a total fool of yourself.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 29.12.2006 @ 10:51
You may be left of center but your comment was spot on.
Good to see my brother (Sensei) isn't the only rational lefty to visit this site.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 29.12.2006 @ 09:52
A perfect combination of tin foil hat looniness and willful self delusion.
Congrats - you come out close to the top as far as one of the more ignorant commenters on this thread.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 29.12.2006 @ 04:06
What in God's name are you talking about? How did we get from Harry Reid to...whatever it is you're trying to say in your endearing if incoherent way?
If you're trying to make a point about "tradition," you bungled it insanely.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 28.12.2006 @ 17:54
So you agree with Leahy. Dick Cheney advocated going to war to personally enrich himself.
Considering the fact that there is not one shred of evidence that this is so, that makes you a conspiracy mongering, tin foil hat wearing loon.
And a slandering, calumnious bastard to boot.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 28.12.2006 @ 17:40
Perhaps my criticism was a little too broad. Let's just make it apply to the idiot lefties who want to compare the funeral of an ex President with their auntie martha's shindig. Or who think I'm complaining because I'm really mad that Ford told Woodward one thing about the Iraq War and Thomas DeFrank something totally different. Or that Harry Reid's visit to South America will actually make one whit of difference to the foreign policy of the United States and that he really is going to hold important discussions while visiting the ruins at Machu Picu.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 28.12.2006 @ 16:37
1. And I guess the sight seeing trip to Machu Picu is where everyone is going to sit down to a formal state dinner.
2, Why is it so difficult to get through your thick skull that the Majority Leader of the Senate has duties and responsibilities beyond the Republican non leaders who are accompanying him? Is this a difficult concept? Should I reduce the number of syllables I use to describe it? Maybe add some pictures, would that help?
3. I made clear in the piece that the Majority Leader always eulogizes the dead president. I guess it isn't a tradition in your mind because it only goes back a 100 years.
4. And trying to compare a funeral of your uncle Ed (or other "loved ones") with the funeral of a President is laughable. THIS IS A STATE OCCASSION. Foreign heads of state or their representatives will be in attendance from every nation on earth that we're speaking to. There are diplomatic protocols. There are military protocols.
If this goes on when your uncle Ed dies, take some pictures. Might be interesting to see...Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 28.12.2006 @ 16:19
Not one commenter has addressed the thesis of my post; that Reid's junketing and missing a former President's funeral is violating both good manners and tradition.
All if get is conspiracy theories and Democratic talking points.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 28.12.2006 @ 14:58
Your tin foil hat is slipping...Better adjust it before its too late.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 28.12.2006 @ 14:14
Whatsamatta? Can't tell the difference between the Majority Leader of the US Senate and two minority members in non leadership (non-eulogizing) positions?
It isn't the junket - it's Reid, imbecile.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 28.12.2006 @ 11:46
