*** John Kasich and his soul brother, George W. Bush (YouTube):
* Richard Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO, said tonight on Keith Olbermann's Countdown, we have a choice to keep moving forward, or return to the days when Wall Street-corporate America ran wild.
* I think we may have seen the last of former Wyoming Sen. Alan Simpson, a Republican. Simpson seems to put his foot in his mouth every 48 hours.
.....in his response to an Associated Press report Monday that diabetes is now the most frequently compensated ailment among Vietnam vets, even though research has found no more than a possible link between diabetes and wartime exposure to Agent Orange.
“The irony (is) that the veterans who saved this country are now, in a way, not helping us to save the country in this fiscal mess,” Simpson said.....
Shame. Mr. Simpson needs to go away, far away. We don't need him to insert his stupidity into our budget discussions.
