Mark’s guest, Republican strategist Mike Lane discuss the news, including this recent exchange between President Bush and newly-elected Virginia Senator Jim Webb (from front page of November 29 Washington Post):
At a recent White House reception for freshman members of Congress, Virginia’s newest senator tried to avoid President Bush. Democrat James Webb declined to stand in a presidential receiving line or to have his picture taken with the man he had often criticized on the stump this fall. But it wasn’t long before Bush found him.
“How’s your boy?” Bush asked, referring to Webb’s son, a Marine serving in Iraq.
“I’d like to get them out of Iraq, Mr. President,” Webb responded, echoing a campaign theme.
“That’s not what I asked you,” Bush said. “How’s your boy?”
“That’s between me and my boy, Mr. President,” Webb said coldly, ending the conversation on the State Floor of the East Wing of the White House.

Mark and Mike will also be discussing the Louisville and Seattle school integration plans on which the Supreme Court heard oral argument today. Could a 5-4 vote by this right-wing court spell the end of Brown v. Board of Education?

    Way too often do I hear this question of ” how does the soldier feel about the mission “. The answer will always be a mixed bag. If one likes to appear macho and is assigned as the General’s aide (his opinion)usually differs from the outlook of a soldier that must drive the IED highway everyday in his tin can on wheels..
    The troops have no say in this occupation attempt. The Commander in chief says, ” go ” and they must go. Soldiers do not have freedom of speech. They cannot speak out if they wanted to. Not allowed to protest either. This is why when a soldier is put out in the media, it is always pro occupation. His speech has been scripted or approved.
    Most anyone was able to see Bush’s poor attitude with Webb. I like Webb would have found myself in restraint from drop kicking him. Put the Bush girls in Iraq on the streets and see if George has human emotions the are attatched to his offspring.

  • Lieberman can be the tour guide at the Bush library-oil rig December 5, 2006 10:05 am

    Connecticuter–I wouldn’t brag about Lieberman either–he’s as humpty-fuckin-dumpty as the Humpty-Dumpty Doctrine he fell in line with–he’s a joke with yoke on his face
