Primary Dolors

From The Dallas Morning News:

AUSTIN – As the GOP struggles nationally to redefine itself, the debate over what it means to be a Republican is playing out in Texas, too, through Kay Bailey Hutchison’s challenge to Gov. Rick Perry.

Hutchison says the “core principles” that will help the party grow are not social, but economic: smaller government, lower taxes and free enterprise.

Perry’s appeal is to a GOP base that sees social issues such as abortion as a litmus test of party purity.

He *Should* Be on the Extramarital Relations Committee Instead

From The Times-Picayune:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana Democrats attacked U.S. Sen. David Vitter over his vote Thursday against Secretary of State nominee Hillary Clinton, which Vitter said stemmed from concerns about overseas conflicts of interest.

The Louisiana Republican was the only member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to oppose the nomination, saying Clinton shouldn’t run the State Department because of her husband’s charitable fundraising overseas.

Bad Medicine

From the Los Angeles Times:

The Bush administration announced its “conscience protection” rule for the healthcare industry Thursday, giving doctors, hospitals, and even receptionists and volunteers in medical experiments the right to refuse to participate in medical care they find morally objectionable.

“This rule protects the right of medical providers to care for their patients in accord with their conscience,” said outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt.

The right-to-refuse rule includes abortion and other aspects of healthcare where moral concerns could arise, Leavitt’s office said, such as birth control, emergency contraception, in vitro fertilization, stem cell research and assisted suicide.

The rule, to be published today in the Federal Register, takes effect the day before President Bush leaves office.

Big Bad John

Oh, kids!! Didja watch the video of John Cornyn that they played at the Texas State Republican Convention in Houston? Hi-larious!!! You can watch it at Burnt Orange. Go ahead, kids, watch it. I’ll wait for you.
All done? Well, it seems that Senator Corny (no, that’s not a typo) realizes that it didn’t go over very well, so I thought I would help him out (because you know I am always helpful to the Rethugs, kids) and rewrite it for him. I hope he likes this version! 😀
To the tune of Big Bad John, written by Jimmy Dean (Johnny Cash version):

(Screw John)
(Screw John)

He strolls through the Senate, like he owns the place,
A swagger in his step, and a smirk on his face,
Narrow of mind, and flappin’ his lip,
But he’s nasty and stupid, moronic and flip, so screw John.

(Screw John)
(Screw John)
Screw you, John
(Screw John)

Unlike Nancy Drew, Who Had a Clue…

BEL AIR, Calif. (AP) — Former first lady Nancy Reagan endorsed John McCain for president Tuesday as the Arizona senator continued to collect backing from leading Republicans who might help him unite the party and win over critical conservative voters.

The GOP nominee-in-waiting, in the midst of a West Coast fundraising swing, stopped by the Southern California home of President Reagan’s widow to accept the endorsement from the Republican matriarch he called beloved and wonderful.
