Why I'm Not a Republican, Part 275

Stuff like this:

WASHINGTON -- Bruce Springsteen famously was "born in the USA," but he's getting scorned in the U.S. Senate.
An effort by New Jersey's two Democratic senators to honor the veteran rocker was shot down Friday by Republicans who are apparently still miffed a year after the Boss lent his voice to the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry.
The chamber's GOP leaders refused to bring up for consideration a resolution, introduced by Sens. Frank Lautenberg and Jon Corzine, that honored Springsteen's long career and the 1975 release of his iconic album, "Born to Run."
Can't all parties agree that Bruce is worthy of praise? I guess they can't.

Meanwhile, that Jean Schmidt speech didn't exactly make me want to run and join the GOP either.

Why waste time on crap like this when Congress has many more pressing issues?

I ask myself that same question all the time...

That's why it's important to have such a well organized efficient congress like we do now to get things accomplished.

Rah Rah US House - show the Senate who's the boss. Quite literally - and honor the Boss.

THIS is something you get torqued about? Congress not honoring Bruce Springsteen?

Who really cares except for people looking for lame reasons to bash politicians on the other side of the aisle.

I started coming here for your sports comments, but even those are simply pedestrian. Maybe it's time to take you off the daily read list.

Waste of time. I'm glad my people refused.
