What the Republicans in the Senate NEED to do, starting tomorrow:

...and what we know they will not, because they cannot.  The Senate is today evenly-divided between Republicans and Radical Leftists, who operate in two entirely different universes.  The New Regime has already told us what they intend to do, and unless the Republicans do this, the Left will succeed beyond their wildest dreams, and destroy …

The folks at Automattic asked us to blog about our voting today

This is perhaps not what they wanted to hear, but it is the Truth.  When there was a Republican running, that's whom I voted for.  The Republican Party in Washington State is a joke.  The man with the perpetual sneer who "represents' my district doesn't have to campaign, since he has next to no opposition. …
