Senate Democrats quashed a proposal yesterday that would have dramatically increased civil fines on employers who hire illegal aliens. Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican, offered …

Words do have meaning…..

Let’s see….Senator Lieberman from CT asks General Patraeus  his thoughts on a resolution of "no confidence" / opposing the surge from the Senate.  When asked point blank, his reply was that it would embolden the enemy.  John Warner (R – YES ANOTHER REPUBLICAN ACTING BADLY) told the General to all but butt out and stay …
