    Proof he has already gone over to the Dark Side. He and Ginsgurg will prolly have drinks after work from now on….

  3. Why does he have that ‘deer in the ambulance headlights’ look, getting caught by the papparazzi in one then? (If it’s so manly I mean…nothing to be ashamed of…not sissy pissy soccer mom-ish in anyway…requiring minimal gonads, to use the scientific term…huh?)

    Most of the soccer moms I see these days drive SUVs. MiniVan men are manly enough to care about the protection of their passengers.

    Us Manly Minivan Men are comfortable enough with our emasculinity that we long ago dispensed with our gonads for scientific research.

    The Minivan Manly Men Club got a second member?

    And Cullen, they’re not in his wife’s purse, they’re hanging from the mirror.

    They are the purse.

    I am so proud of my mini-van. I really am. I have the house in the suburbs, over 2.5 kids, and my wife stays at home and we drive a mini-van. All I need now is a dog. I am living the American dream.
    But I AM in debt up to my eye balls. Oh well. Stupid easy credit 🙂

  11. Ken Summers says:

    2.5 kids? That just tears my heart out…

  13. For Mr. Bingley, wherever you may find him

    Telling, and predictable.

    NY, NJ, Mass, and Maryland – 0 fer 8. Criminy. I think there was one handrwitten vote, in crayon, for Eliot Spitzer…

    I see Maria Cantwell (D-WA) voted “NO”; that means Patty Murray (D-WA) voted “YES”. Interesting, especially since I voted FOR Cantwell, but AGAINST Murray.
    I view Cantwell as more mainstream and intelligent than Murray. Cantwell tends to consider her positions much more carefully. I don’t always agree with her, but her approach is far more intelligent. I suspect that Cantwell had considered reasons for voting against this nomination. Likely, I disagree, but she had her reasons.
    Murray, OTOH, often opens her mouth merely to change feet. Murray is on record as spewing that old false meme of “Osama built hospitals but America didn’t”; in some ways, she’s a less intelligent version of Hillary (a frightening thought, to be sure).
    I wonder if Murray is playing the “Oh-but-I-am-moderate-see-how-I-voted” game here. Which is odd, given that Washington State tends to vote left (thanks to the California Colonization Of Western Washington).
    As Hillary quietly voted against Roberts, I am really scratching my head here. I don’t recall that Murray’s re-election was all that close.

    Hil did it to encourage her base that all that rumbling about border control is a smokescreen.

    Funny, I would have guessed the baby-eater drove an SUV death beast.
