Wake me up when it's over

Okay, I've fallen off the wagon, and gone on a Daily Kos bender. So sue me. Here's the latest Great White Hope being touted by the Kosniks: one Francine Busby. She is running for Congress in California's 50th District, which is usually Republican, but since the incumbent is actually in jail at the moment, the Donkey Party thinks it might have a chance.

A few highlights from Francine's very lengthy "issues" page:

  • Provide Tax Credits for Small Businesses and the Self-Employed to Lower the Cost of Health Insurance
  • Oppose Amnesty [for illegal aliens --ed.]
  • Oppose Increases in the Gas Tax
  • Fund and Reform "No Child Left Behind" to Make It Less Punitive and More Productive in Holding Schools Accountable
  • Create Opportunities for More Students to Afford College by Letting Families Save for College Tax-Free Loans and by Restoring Funding for Loans for Middle Class Families
  • Start Withdrawing Troops [from Iraq] as Soon As Benchmarks are Met
  • Get Tough on Countries Sponsoring or Harboring Terrorist Like Iran and Syria
  • Restore Military Experts' Input to Decisions in the War On Terrorism Instead of Relying Only on Washington Politicians
  • Cut Taxes for Small Businesses and Working Families ....
Oh, And Fully Fund The Capital Letters Protection Act of 2006 -- sorry, sorry, that was a little acid flash there. They don't happen very often any more, but they're quite vivid when they do.

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
