    Christ: “Now they’re predicting yet another precise date for Doomsday. What money suckers. May God help them. I’ll pick the time when it seems most merciful and least harmful.”

    If Gingrich wants to play Uncle Scrooge McDuck diving into gold encrusted diamonds, that really is his business if it was his money. And it well could have been diamonds, in bulk, as an investment. With inflation going the way it is, a lot of people want their commodity investments in hand.

    Gingrich isn’t going to win, and he divides vote my guy doesn’t play to (except when people are deluded and think Gingrich is a fiscal conservative and there isn’t much that can be done with that level of delusion.)

    Cloture vote was set for 5 pm today on the Patriot Act, since they thought your Jr senator would be out of town. If you don’t like the patriot act you might send some noise to your Senator’s office (the other one). They plan to extend it 4 years without the amendment to repeal the already permenant NS letters. I want it all gone, but those letters are actually worse than what is up for renewal now…. I’m saying vote no on cloture (it will make cloture anyhow) then vote for the amendment to ax the national security letters.

    Happy Monday after Rapture Jake.
