Yeah, sure... just like he "allowed"...

...the sun to rise this morning...
Don't worry, Puffin-Boy... I've heard it gets easier each time you do it.

Of course, there are always a few nay-sayers...

“It looks bad on Ignatieff and his control over his caucus,” said one long-time Liberal. The optics of going against a leader in a budget vote are not good, which is why MPs are usually disciplined.

In 2007, former Liberal MP Joe Comuzzi was kicked out of St├ęphane Dion's caucus for pledging to support the Conservative budget.

In 1996, John Nunziata was kicked out of Jean Chr├ętien's Liberal caucus for voting against the government's budget over what he considered a broken promise not to rescind the GST.

...entitled to "their entitlements".
Obama ran as the candidate who will break the influence of corporate lobbyists, and Daschle wrote a finger-wagging book about how special interests have too much control over how government runs the health care sector.

Then we find that after Daschle left the Senate he, um, earned some $5.3 million over two years from those very special interests, who are already demanding favors.

the real story isn't that daschle got shitcanned... it's that all the rest of st barack's similarly flawed nominees got through.

Right on; I wonder if the inept media might get off their knees,and do their job by actually investigating what is going on.

With political whack-a-mole as blatant as this,even the dumbest syncophants have to be scratching their heads.
Reality says it'll take at least another few months though.

Watch for Chris Dodd to go up in flames soon.

Umm, you mean those corporate interests like the car companies and the rest of the corporate hangers on, the big unions, and government lobbyists who are getting money from his bail-out?

Those special interests?

Here's the new guy much like the old guy....
