My friend Rick was late getting to the blog lately due to illness, but I thought he'd put too much work into his comments to let them languish in archives where only I will see them. So here they are. Rick is one of those guys that don't suffer fools gladly. Not that I'm calling my liberal friends or Mike the Liberal Jewish Brother-In-Law fools, but Rick would ;-) Anyway, enjoy. Consider this The Happy Carpenter's first guest post.

I am late to this debate but it seems to me, you're just still mad about losing in 2000 and the stunning successes Bush has had since. And, you are frustrated that a dumb ole 'Publican cowboy keeps kicking the asses of the best of your lot - especially when he grins while he is kicking you in the ass (politically speaking, of course).
