Great Scott! What’s in his pants? Welcome to the Senate Mr.Centerfold

Unless you have had your head under a rock, you know Scott Brown is the winning candidate for the senate seat of Massachusetts, and in case you really are one of those people that have had their head under a rock, the seat was previously held by Ted Kennedy for 30something yrs who was a Democrat and Scott Brown is a Republican.

Which brings me to my point…

Did the Dems wake up this morning and say “Oh its all Coakley’s fault, lets still move ahead” as one of Obama’s top aides suggested yesterday by saying “Campaigns and candidates matter.” or did they wake up and say “Perhaps we should take a good long hard look at ourselves in the mirror and “change” the way we have been running things?”

Or as White House senior adviser David Axelrod told POLITICO: “I think that it would a terrible mistake to walk away now. If we don’t pass the bill, all we have is the stigma of a caricature that was put on it. That would be the worst result for everybody who has supported this bill.” He said the administration will work with Capitol Hill to figure out how and even Obama’s former campaign manger, David Plouffe, added on ABC’s “Good Morning America”: “I’m very confident we can pass health-care reform.”

But on the flip side of all of this, why the Republicans are basking in the glory (Holy crap we have someone on our side that has charisma, is young and can make jokes), do they understand that perhaps Scott Brown was elected because he is not a true Republican, in fact he began the race as an independent and then switched to a republican ticket and that most Republicans don’t want someone who is ‘conservative’, but someone who is fiscally conservative and socially liberal….as I’m sure most Democrats do as well. I think the election results considering Obama took the state by 26 points shows that people care really more about the Libertarian, not the Republican or the Democrat.

But the question is: Will either side see it or continue to run the same way as they both have been for years?

Why you ponder this question, Ladies enjoy the pic below.

Welcome to the Senate Mr Centerfold

Ted Kennedy is taking $20million from troops from the grave

Okay, okay the headline is perhaps a little exagerated, but 20 million is being diverted from expense accounts that pay for fuel, ammunition and training for U.S. troops, including those fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to an analysis to pay for an educational institute named after the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy.

Senators diverted a total of $2.6billion from these accounts to pay for certain pet projects earmarks, including Kennedy’s educational institute (sure hope they are not teaching driving lessons) is another 778 such projects and another example is a $25 million for a new World War II museum at the University of New Orleans.

Earmarks are not new in Washington and lets face it, Dems have a history of cutting funds to the troops, its what they do, but perhaps its time for this administration to stand by what they said, which was cutting back on earmarks and perhaps the one wing of the government that is hurting the most, should not have to worry about cuts for a while.

Whose Health Care cause is it anyway?

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who obviously is staying away from Obama and protester Cindy Sheehan during the summer break spoke today and vowed to the cause of her of Sen Kennedy’s life

“This is the cause of my life,” Kennedy said of the 46 million Americans who do not have health insurance.

Meanwhile across town Byrd has offered his 2 cents and suggested the new healthcare reform be named after Kennedy and upon hearing this Nancy kicked herself for not coming up with the same thing and getting a extra 1 minute of time on C-Span and not one of them thinking about the impact it could be having on Mary Jo Kopechne’s family in regards to having a healthcare bill in Kennedy’s name

pelosi and byrd
