Clarence has compromised by moving one disastrous policy to another. Quite a low standard if you ask me. I really hope it doesn't become a trend for this Senate to ignore common sense because the sponsor of a bill expresses a willingness to compromise. After all, the Fugitive Slave Act was a compromise.
Um............

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fugitive_Slave_Act_of_1850

Quote
The Fugitive Slave Law or Fugitive Slave Act was passed by the United States Congress on September 18, 1850, as part of the Compromise of 1850 between Southern slave-holding interests and Northern Free-Soilers.

Yes, what an ABSURD statement.

Though if you are arguing semantics here, it would be inaccurate to call the Fugitive Slave Act a "compromise" in itself.  It was, after all, part of the much larger "Compromise of 1850".  Likely, it would've been very hard to pass it as a standalone act.

It's absurd that Nappy's saying compromise is bad because the Fugitive Slave Act was a compromise.

I didn't say compromise was bad lol.

I'll be getting the hell out of CT in a year or two, so option one.

Why and where to? I have debated moving but I am a lazy.

Clinton tried to take it twice, and I believe it was briefly an option for Obama.

No. No, it certainly wasn't.

I voted for Man Chin because

1. I'm a good little Democrat.
2. Even though Snowe is moderate, she'd have to make sacrifices to the far right.

Usually when your President, your party has to cater to you.

Evidence: Republicans under Bush, Democrats under Obama

Familiarity may be the problem. Have we forgotten Maffei is a loser?

That didnt hurt Steve Chabot, Steve Pearce, or Tim Wahlberg. 

Steve Chabot was elected seven times before losing and winning again. Steve Pearce was elected each of the four times he ran for his House seat. Maffei lost, won and lost again.

Napoleon is just being a tool. I don't think he could reasonably deny that, either.

I am a grammar nazi, as one might call it.

Napoleon, you should avoid using the passive voice in formal writing.

I don't believe that my single sentence qualifies as formal writing but thanks for the tip. Smiley

After respondents were read "balanced, positive" paragraphs about both candidates, Maffei was up 49-40.

And I trust a Democratic internal poll to be totally balanced and totally positive. LOL.

Pretty poor for an internal. Sad

Yeah. Tough for Democrats, because Buerkle is a likable Republican, issue-wise.

Still a close race, though.

Buerkle had always struck me as a Marilyn Musgrave clone. That usually doesn't fly in New York (even in upstate).

Are you sure you aren't confusing her with Nan Hayworth, human trash?

Good point. Though Buerkle is still a poor fit for the district.

I wont underestimate her again. Republicans weren't supposed to be able to win this seat back. I imagine she is a tougher cookie than would be expected. However Maffei can win.
