What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo considers an early day

To atone for the dark nature of yesterday's video, the Silent Monks Singing Halleluia. You're welcome. No, I'm not cleaning your keyboard.

And for my friend, Jim, whom I know loves the Carol of the Bells, in Claymation.

Catherine is having a naughty or nice drawing for a copy of Swill or a copy of Hulk Hercules: Professional Wrestler.

Bryan Fischer continues to go around the bend. Seriously, it's getting close to the time where the nice young mean in their clean white coats show up with the tranq-dart gun.

Here's an interesting chart showing US Senate Cloture Motions. You know, those are the things that end filibusters. With the 110th Congress, Democrats gained a limited majority in the Senate, their first since the 102 Congress. Yeah, that's a pretty big bump there in the 110th. So when the conservatives start their patter of "they started it first" whenever anybody talks about the unprecedented use of the filibuster, now you know the real story.

And since I harp on and on about it, good to see the Tea Party talking about accountability. That's an article about the loopholes in the proposed 112th Congresses House Rule regarding the "transparency" platform (that all bills will be posted for public review for 3 days prior to vote - which the Library of Congress already does).
