Party Hopping

I saw this cartoon and had to share it:

Pretty cute, huh?

I swear, Congress couldn't find their posterior with both hands.

In other news, the socialist former Democrat-turned-Republican-turned independent that leans more toward socialism (ie:Democrat) Mayor Bloomberg has announced his most recent affiliation change.

From this source:

Just last year, he told a group of Manhattan Republicans about his run for mayor: "I couldn't be prouder to run on the Republican ticket and be a Republican."

Asked on Monday about a hypothetical independent candidate entering the race, Bloomberg launched a broad critique of the Bush administration and Congress and lamented the presidential debates to date.

"I think the country is in trouble," Bloomberg said, citing the war in Iraq and the nation's declining standing globally.

"Our reputation has been hurt very badly in the last few years," he said. "We've had a go-it-alone mentality in a world where, because of communications and transportation, you should be going exactly in the other direction."

Ladies and gentlemen, this is why I do not vote down party lines. They are utterly meaningless, unless of course, you count them as tools of convenience for the shifty politician.
