First the house...
By the way, I'd like to give the first ever and hereafter infrequently conferred No Shit Award (also known as the "Golden Sherlock") to Sen. George Voinovich.
"It is time to recognize a simple fact of life," Voinovich said. "Contrary to what some of my colleagues seem to believe, tax cuts do not pay for themselves."Welcome to the reality-based community, sir, we're glad to have you. What, however, took you so long?
(A note: If not for Voinovich's comment, this award would have gone to John Edwards, who said his vote to authorize Bush to take troops into Iraq "was a mistake." Perhaps a Claude Raines Gambling Awareness Award is in the offing? Julia?)
