We are full of joy and love today. Big, Pink, Love. Big, Pink, Joy.
We recall it was Goethe who said something akin to “It is a hard heart that cannot love in May”.
Unfortunately we cannot find a link to authoritatively quote the wise poet. Notwithstanding our failed link quest, we are full of love and joy this first day of May.

We’re too full of joy this first day of May to consider the somewhat surprising Justice Souter resignation (we think the replacement, even with opposition, will likely be Latina Judge Sonia Sotomayo of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals). There is some talk, among Obama supporters eager to bury her, of Hillary Clinton going to the Supreme Court. We doubt that will happen or even be considered by anyone.

We’re too full of joy and love this first day of May to provide a full analysis of the skullduggery and nauseating deceptions and near waste of time associated with the phony balony fake “credit card bill of rights“.
We simply will not consider, today, this disgusting piece of deception posing as credit card reform. We won’t soil our beautiful minds today or get mired in the filth which is this supposed credit card legislation. We won’t, we won’t, we won’t, disgust ourselves, today, with this filthy bit of credit card garbage and flim-flammery – which does nothing for a year (it takes effect a year from now).
We refuse to dirty ourselves with analysis of this bilge credit card legislation which pretends to do something but in reality does very little.
We shun the opportunity to discuss, today, this fake credit card “legislation “which Hopium addicts say Obama is “eager” to sign.
We will not discuss, today, the related January 22, 2008 debate (the particularly dirty one in which Obama attacked Hillary and Hillary punched back by finally mentioning Antoin “Tony” Rezko – our debate coverage HERE and HERE in what we termed “the best debate ever”) and Obama’s laughable response to why he voted AGAINST a cap on credit card interest rates of very high 30%.
Clinton: There was a particular amendment that I think is very telling. It was an amendment to prohibit credit card companies from charging more than 30 percent interest. … I voted for limiting to 30 percent what credit card companies could charge. Senator Obama did not. …
Obama: It is a fact, because I thought 30 percent potentially was too high of a ceiling.
Hypocrite John Edwards exposed hypocrite Barack Obama with the mocking reply to Obama’s mendacious claim:
EDWARDS: You voted against it because the limit was too high, is that what you just said?
OBAMA: That is exactly what I just said, John, because…
EDWARDS: So there’s no limit at all.
No limit at all to Obama’s lies. Obama voted with the credit card companies against a 30% cap on credit cards and allowed unlimited credit card interest rates. Now Obama and fake Dimocrats pretend to be tribunes for the people oppressed by credit card companies.

We’re too full of love and joy today to give a thorough scouring of Stuart Rothenberg’s article which echos our initial assessment of what the Arlen Specter defection and the 60 vote filibuster proof majority held by Dimocrats means.
The good news for Republicans now is that Democrats own everything, giving greater salience to the GOP argument that voters (and contributors) need to support Republican candidates and the party’s campaign committees so that Democrats don’t have a “blank check.”
Specter’s switch may also embolden Democrats in the nation’s capital to move further left than what the country is comfortable with, causing a voter backlash and internal party fissures. This could, in turn, bring a new focus by the media on differences within the Democratic Party rather than on differences between the two parties.
Democrats have every reason to be euphoric about Specter’s switch, but at the end of the day, it may not be the game changer that they hope.
Why don’t the Dimocrats pass now what they have been promising for years? Will Dimocrats go for a single payer health care system now that they are in full control? Will Dimocrats cap credit card interest rates at 30%, or 20%, or 10%, or go with Sharia law and demand no interest be charged by lenders at all?
We’ll ponder all the promises Democrats have made over the years – and how the Dimocrats in the White House and in Congress can, but won’t [hint: they rather have the issues still alive so they can continue to fundraise off controversy] fulfill all those long promised promises – on another day. We can’t today. We are too full of love and joy.
We’re full of love and joy today.
What are Obama, and his Dimocrats, full of?
