I'm still here, but I've been rather busy with the christmas lights and all, so I haven't gotten around to posting.
I'll try to flush my queue in the next two days, at least to post up my last few columns.
I've also got some interesting information on the corruption of the guy Pelosi picked to head the intelligence committee now that she's been told she can't have her first choice. It's a bad sign for a leader that she is using her personal animus against another female from her own state to make her decisions, but that is how Pelosi is, and we better get used to it.
Hastert wasn't much to look at, but he was a fair and honest guy, and we'll miss him -- and it's too bad, because the democrats HAVE good, honest, fair people on their side of the aisle, but they rarely get to be in positions of leadership because the democrats are still living by the old old rules, rules the republicans threw out years ago, rules honoring seniority over all.
