  • Your new Senate Leaders

    Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.
    -Abramoff Scandal, Sons who are lobbyists, boxing tickets and other perks, land deal that made him $1 million, etc. Scandels
    Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin, D-Ill.
    -His love for the military: "If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags or some mad regime — Pol Pot or others — that had no concern for human beings." Durbin apologizes.
    Agriculture: Tom Harkin, D-Iowa.
    -Attacks Cheney for not serving in Vietnam while he lied about his own: "In 1979, Mr. Harkin, then a congressman, participated in a round-table discussion arranged by the Congressional Vietnam Veterans' Caucus. 'I spent five years as a Navy pilot, starting in November of 1962,' Mr. Harkin said at that meeting, in words that were later quoted in a book, Changing of the Guard, by Washington Post political writer David Broder. 'One year was in Vietnam. I was flying F-4s and F-8s on combat air patrols and photo-reconnaissance support missions. I did no bombing.'
    "That clearly is not an accurate picture of his Navy service. . . . Mr. Harkin's Navy record shows his only decoration is the National Defense Service Medal, awarded to everyone on active service during those years. He did not receive either the Vietnam Service medal or the Vietnam Campaign medal, the decorations given to everyone who served in the Southeast Asia theater."
    Appropriations: Robert Byrd, D-W.Va.
    -Former Kleagle for the KKK. Proof
    Judiciary: Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. Leah
    -Leahy the Leaker. According to a 1987 San Diego Union-Tribune report, in a 1985 television appearance Leahy disclosed classified information that one of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's telephone conversations had been intercepted. The information that Leahy revealed had been used in the operation to capture the Arab terrorists who had hijacked the Achille Lauro cruise ship and killed American citizens, and the Union-Tribune claimed that Leahy's indiscretion may have cost the life of at least one of the Egyptian operatives involved in that operation. In 1987, The Washington Times reported that Leahy had also leaked secret information about a 1986 covert operation planned by the Reagan administration to overthrow Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi. Leahy allegedly had said, "I thought [the operation] was probably the most ridiculous thing I had seen, and also the most irresponsible," and had threatened to expose the operation to CIA Director William Casey.
    Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions: Edward Kennedy, D-Mass.

      While I don't care for many of them, like Mikey said, the people have spoken (at least those that cared enough to vote). Nothing much one can do, but work with what we have. Life goes on.

      Be nice to see a new topic pop up that wasn't politically charged. After all the damn commercials and campain ads, there has got to be more important things to discuss.

        Yes, the people have spoken. We traded a bunch of crooked, incompetent, scandalized politicians with the designation "R" for a bunch of crooked, incompetent, scandalized politicians with the designation "D".

        Only the names and parties change.

            Now how true is that!
            Yes the people have spoken, agree or not, it is still great to live in one of the few countries that can have this major of a change without violence or blood shed.

              There is, and plenty of it. That would be the reason this is posted in the "Off Duty Forums". There is still plenty of stuff to read and comment on in the other forums if this isn't to your liking.

                That IS the fact. We are a civilized society (most of the time) and although we may not be happy with election results, we don't go around and kill people who vote differently then us.

                    That's why I always refer to the first Tuesday in November as "ERECTION DAY" ... that's the day you vote for whoever you want to stick it to you for the next four years.

                        I must have missed something. I thought you were from the Chicago area. EVERYBODY knows about the voting process there. The ward bosses arrange transportation to the polls, you vote right and you get a ride home. Vote wrong and you get a ride to......... Well...... Somewhere that will allow you to chat with Jimmy Hoffa......

                            Right or wrong they voted and spoke their desires. Can't agree with all of them. We are stuck with them for awhile.

                              I could think of worst. There are several senators and house women that jump right up that I would hate to see as leaders of any thing.
