How long have they both been Rep. controlled? By what majority? This is an interesting question. The Common Wisdom is that we had the past 8 years--but here's the reality Congress went into Rep control in 1994--for the first time in 40 years.

How predictable is DVD?

Y'know, I never saw the point of getting on Edwards for his haircuts, or Hillary for her $6,000.00 pantsuits--or even Michelle Obama's comment that a $600.00 stimulus check was useless--what could you get a pair of earrings?(yes, I'm paraphrasing) Unless you're a contributor, it's not your money tha...

No--that's no way to have a gloatfest--you need music--and 'pound it'? You really don't want to tell anyone to jerk off-whether they're gloating, or being gloated at. Sigh.

But jkisha, you DID. As did I. There is no official word yet other than the initial police report.
