Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Hah! "Caucus".
Therion: "And there's always friction within a party, between your conservatives, your moderates, even your liberals."Won't someone think of the Republican liberals?
incendi: If you don't have a side of the bargain that you can actually deliver, then you shouldn't be the one bargaining.
Karac: You can call Nancy Pelosi an evil socialist battleaxe all you want, but you have to acknowledge that at least she was damn good at her job.
Sock Ruh Tease: Boehner's medicine will make all his problems go away.[www.thebettermousetrap.me image 305x200]
