abb3w: Raharu: He'll be fine. Remember, one law for use, another for them.

Actually, that's the odd part. Senators and Representatives routinely abuse that whole "privilege from arrest" bit in the constitution.

Was he drunk enough to forget that, or did he have too much integrity?

The privilege is a lot more narrow than a lot of people realize.

It isn't, "I'm a member of Congress, you can't arrest me."  It's, "I'm a member of Congress on my way to discharge my official duties, you can't arrest me on a misdemeanor charge."

In any case, I think the Senate might be in recess...which would render the clause inoperative.

marius2: Only if we could get a Kennedy to screw up this bad!

First you'd have to find a Kennedy that was a Mormon. Do you know a Kennedy that is a Mormon?

uh... i'm actually asking here: "butt-chugger." = homosexual or party-enema reference?

BMulligan: Gough: BMulligan: Gough: Lives in one of the two blue dots in ID

I grew up in Idaho, and I have no idea what "blue dots" you could possibly mean. I suppose Sun Valley is one, but as far as I ever knew the whole rest of the state was deep red.

/went to high school with the guy who's now Joe Biden's chief of staff
//neither he nor I have lived in Idaho for many, many years
///I miss Frank Church!

I'll second the notion on Frank Church. It's been pretty bleak since then.

The other blue dot is Latah County.

Ah, Moscow. That explains it. Bunch of commies.

Smile when you say that, comrade.

0Icky0: Real Women Drink Akvavit: Start with the military then. We don't need that many bases all over the world. We need to defend ourselves, not police the entire world.

But if you cut the military it will have a devastating impact on jobs. And not only soldiers, but people who work at bases, and people who make the weapons.

/Because government cannot create jobs. Except for when it comes to military-type jobs.
//Which is different.
///For some reason.

We have a lot of infrastructure that needs repairing, and taking care of that would create jobs. I imagine a lot of those soldiers were trained to do specific jobs, so simply segue them into repairing infrastructure. According to the Infrastructure Report Card we couldn't come close to fixing everything that needs to be fixed with what we'd save, but at least we'd be doing something that desperately needs to be done while keeping the money right here at home, boosting the economy when they spend all of their money at home rather than spending at least some of it overseas. Besides, do we really need US soldiers skiing around the woods in Norway with the Home Guard in "training exercises"? What's wrong with the bases in Alaska? Do they no longer have snow in Alaska?

It simply makes no sense to me. Then again, having friends who are serving, or have served, I've been told "military intelligence" is probably the biggest oxymoron on the planet.

KrispyKritter: WTF? Plenty of Morans drink and drive. Nothing new.

Mormons aren't supposed to drink at all. The Bishop is going to be like, so mad, you guys! Which for some odd reason makes me giggle.

Why are they not letting the Bush tax cuts expire? I don't understand that. They were supposed to expire a long time ago, weren't they? I know if I'm broke, I look for new sources of income, not deprive myself of it. That would just be stupid.

Why speculate when I can just make shiat up about slapping my dick around his face in the men's room of a DC sports bar.
