So it looks like my new running route is only 5.9 miles instead of the 6.2 that I would really want. On the other hand, it was still a pretty good run. Lots better than I've done in at least a year. No wonder my knees hurt.

Guess I'm going to have to start looking for some less impacty cardio...

So far, Democrats in Congress and at the top of the party hierarchy, out of touch with public sentiment and worried that impeachment could hurt them with "independents"--whom they mistakenly consider to stand somehow "in between" Democrats and Republicans--have been following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's vow that for the 110th Congress, "impeachment is off the table." They've been doing more than that: they have been actively working to tamp down, and even to crush, impeachment campaigns in the states. For example, in the state of Washington, an effort to get the state to pass a joint legislative resolution which would have compelled the Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings was derailed after the Democratic leadership dispatched two of the state's leading federal elected officials, Sen. Patty Murray and Rep. Jay Inslee, to press legislative leaders to block a floor vote. Similar pressure doomed efforts that might have passed in the legislatures of New Mexico and Vermont (The Vermont Senate did pass the resolution).


Why? Because Congressional Dems are not interested in doing anything effective to oppose Dubya.

They have no interest in being an "opposition" party.

They're only interested in caving in. In failing at life. In being stupid, worthless idiots. Standing by, doing nothing, while thousands more die for no reason.

Glad you voted these people into office, America? I sure hope so...
