Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Quote of the Day

From Rep. Wayne Gilchrest (R-MD) via the WaPo:

"I can't help but feel through eyes of a combat-wounded Marine in Vietnam, if someone was shot, you tried to save his life. . . . While you were in combat, you had a sense of urgency to end the slaughter, and around here we don't have that sense of urgency," said Rep. Wayne T. Gilchrest (Md.), a usually soft-spoken Republican who has urged his leaders to challenge the White House on Iraq. "To me, the administration does not act like there's a war going on. The Congress certainly doesn't act like there's a war going on. If you're raising money to keep the majority, if you're thinking about gay marriage, if you're doing all this other peripheral stuff, what does that say to the guy who's about ready to drive over a land mine?"

It's okay, the Senate will come through and do the hard work. They've dusted off the flag burning amendment again, the issue only an election year can love.
