Talk is Cheap

It’s all well and good that people like Sen. Pete Domenici (R-NM) and Rep. John Doolittle (R-CA) are changing their positions on the war in Iraq and making their views known to the world.

But none of it really means anything unless they’re willing to match their talk with actions like actually voting to end the war. Until they do that, it’s all just jerking off.

    Domenici’s no surprise. He’s up for re-election in a state that’s trending Democratic. I’ve also read he’s in the early stages of Alzheimer’s Disease, but I have never seen any “official” account suggesting that.

    LOL! I know you totally didn’t mean it this way Oddjob, but all I could think was, “The irony that that’s that it takes to get a Republican thinking straight again.”

    As a native New Mexican, I can tell you Domenici is full of shit. But it doesn’t matter. No one will vote against him. He has been around so long, and New Mexicans love their “saints.” I started spreading the anti-Domenici word a few years back when he started pushing for a constitutional ban on gay marriage. I have had very few converts, including family members who love their gay brother, son, uncle, but will vote for Pete anyway.

    He may actually care, but I think it is useless posturing. As for the Alzheimer’s, I wouldn’t doubt it. But again, New Mexicans would still vote for him.

    Argh!

  4. NameChanged, when I lived in New Mexico (1995-2001), Pete was the saint because he brought home the bacon. Now his little protege, Heather, is in deep shit. I hope.

    As a current resident of New Mexico I have to say that NameChanged is absolutely correct. Mr Domenici is entrenched and we are stuck with him. Ms. Wilson however has been swinging by a thin thread for a while now. I sure hope we finally vote her out the next election.
