Michael Steele: The New drag queenRepublican!

steelecowMichael Steele, the leader of the Republican party, except when he isn’t and Rush leads, has stated:

“The feeling in some circles is that this health care train has left the station with the president at the wheel, and Republicans better jump on board,” says our host.

“Well I’m the cow on the tracks,” proclaimed Steele.  “You’re gonna have to stop the train to get this cow off the track to move forward.”

That statement is pretty hilarious, considering a cow is female. Apparently, Steele will then be dressed in drag, a picture nobody should be required to see, let alone visualize.

However, besides the ridiculous statement, what he is proving is the fight is a long way from being over. Even though the bill passed the financial committee, with the help of one Republican, to get the bill passed by both houses, and in a form that will actually benefit the people of this country, will require some serious debate.

Our President will have to step out of his comfort zone and start using the fact Democrats control congress to our advantage.  So far, he hasn’t shown a whole lot of leadership ability in that area. He needs to quit sniping at news pundits and get on with the business of seeing to it true health care reform, as he promised, is passed. Putting road blocks like Steele in their place shouldn’t be all that difficult when you control congress. The Democrats need to remember that trains have cow catchers on the front for a reason. Start using it.

proclamation

If you could decide this day marks or celebrates (fill in the blank), what would you want to proclaim?  Seems most everything is covered, but I’m sure this bunch has some interesting things to add.

Here’s how you start:  Whereas this day has nothing going on I find particularly interesting, I therefore proclaim…

According to wiki the following are already proclaimed for October 15th, so choose something other than these:

White Cane Safety Day is a United States national observance, celebrated on October 15 of each year since 1964. The date is set aside to celebrate the achievements of people who are blind or visually impaired and the important symbol of blindness and tool of independence, the white cane.

Global Handwashing Day is a campaign to motivate and mobilize millions around the world to wash their hands with soap.  The Global Handwashing Day took place for the first time on October 15, 2008.

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is a day of remembrance for all pregnancies and infant death which includes but not limited to miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS, or the death of a newborn. It is recognized in the United States and throughout Canada on October 15h of each year.
