Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

Why Cheney Doesn't Remember Edwards

In the vice-presidential debate, Dick Cheney tried to make a point of Edward's

attendance record in the US Senate. Cheney said that he presided (as the
VP is suppose to do) most Tuesdays. The names on this list are the Senators
who sat in the chair the vice-president sits in when he is absent.


A reward to whomever finds a Tuesday in 2002, 2003 or 2004 that Dick Cheney
fulfilled his duties as President of the Senate.

That's right - he was there TWICE in FOUR YEARS! This is why Cheney doesn't
