Here we go, ladies and germs. They're off and running. The sound waves carrying Obama's choice to replace Justice Souter had barely reached our ears and the two leaders of the Conservative Republican cult were lining up slinging mud and promising a fight. Fat gas bags Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh went so far as to call her a racist. Now Gingrich has backed off of that, allowing how maybe his words were not very well chosen. Well, well, well. How decent of him! Little do these two jerks realize how much they're hurting their 'cause'. The rest of the Republican party needs to separate itself from these guys (throw in Cheney too for good measure)if they have any hope at all of exercising some influence over the future course of events. They should listen to Colin Powell. He is a voice of reason and moderation. But the party is so desperate now who knows what they'll do. Kind of fun to watch, isn't it?
