Just a Quick Post..On My Way Out the Door

Something you may want to read....I am on my way out the door today will be back later.. but have a couple of things you might want to read today I found.

In 2003 Jeffrey Sharlet went into the house on C Street and lived among the Senators and Representatives who reside there and study the Bible and God. He wrote about it in Harper's Magazine before he wrote it up in a book and here is where you can find it. The story is chilling to say the least. The list of characters is mind boggling too.

Among those who resided there included both Democrats and Republicans....yes, so far all we have heard about were Republicans...don't be fooled..it wasn't just Repubs.. here is who he says was there when he was:

Senators Don Nickles (R., Okla.), Charles Grassley (R., Iowa), Pete Domenici (R., N.Mex.), John Ensign (R., Nev.), James Inhofe (R., Okla.), Bill Nelson (D., Fla.), and Conrad Burns (R., Mont.) are referred to as “members,” as are Representatives Jim DeMint (R., S.C.), Frank Wolf (R., Va.), Joseph Pitts (R., Pa.), Zach Wamp (R., Tenn.), and Bart Stupak (D., Mich.).

Scary thought isn't it... I am sure there were more, but that's all he mentioned in this article. I am looking for his book, but haven't been to the bookstore as of yet.

Also there is an Op-Ed in the Washington Post today...by Sarah Palin... yeah.. believe it or not. However I don't believe in anyway she wrote it.

It is well written, and contains real sentences...lol Now, I am not saying I agree with anything it says.. just that it is there... If you want to read it.. The link is here. But, it is a slam at the Cap and Trade bill that was passed by the House and is slamming Pres. Obama.. anyone who thinks this woman is not running for president in 2012 is deluded... she is so running... If she can raise enough money and get enough people behind her.

Okay, there are my suggestions for your reading pleasure for the day... Hope you enjoy them...lol

Have a great day, I will be back with you all later on.

That is one scary group, that's for certain. And I agree with you about Palin. She's priming the pump forf a run in 2012. Also, she seems like a nice fit for the aforementioned C Street Group.

Man, I really do fear that this organization is only the tip of the iceberg...

And I agree. There is no way in Hell that Palin wrote the op-ed piece. Actual sentence structure, a continuous thought, a sense of how to build an argument...no way - she finally took my advice and hired a speechwriter! ;)

I think Palin is figuring that there's no way the Dems can dig out of this GOP-dug hole, which gives her a shot in 2012. I think you're dead on with that prediction. Scary as all get-out, but I fear it may come to fruition! Short post, but great!
