DANCING WITH ANDY GARCIA
Create your own poster.
Every evening after I’ve cleaned and cooked and shopped,
after a day when I might have picked up Little H from school and kept him company while watching Square Bob Sponge Pants for the umpteenth time,
when I want to shut out the insanity --
like OJ telling how he could have slaughtered the mother of his children,
and the reality of terrorists threatening to bomb the White House --
I slip on a t-shirt and sweat pants and my grass-stained tread-less Keds,
and I go dancing with Andy Garcia.
I climb on the treadmill -- I start with an incline of 3% and a speed of 2mph – and I begin warming up to Tito Nieves singing I Like It Like That. After a good 20 minutes of Tito, I switch to Carlos Santana. By this time I’m pushing 3mph on a 4.7% incline.
I close my eyes and I’m dancing. Amazingly, I look and dance like Maria Conchita Alonso in Moscow on the Hudson. With whom I’m dancing I don’t know. It’s just a faceless partner – male, definitely male, and definitely not Robin Williams – who tires by the time Santana begins playing “Smooth.” And that’s when Andy Garcia steps in.
“Will your wife mind?”
“No, she has a cast on her leg. How about your husband, will he mind?"
"He's not here."
We dance for a good 25 minutes, never tiring, never getting bored with each other or the music. We don’t talk; we just dance.
I figure if you’ve got to firm up your glutes and strengthen your heart, there’s no more enjoyable way than dancing with Andy Garcia.

HERE COME DA DEMS
4 Reporting for duty. KERRY BARELY THERE AS CHUCK GETS DEM POWER POST: Schumer was given unprecedented clout yesterday to set the party's congressional agenda, recruit Senate candidates and shape the message of the 2008 Democratic White House hopefuls.
As for Kerry, he wasn't completely shut out, if you count a gig as head of the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
88 L’Fraude does have a Kerry-esque background for the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship. That's the Way the Cookie Crumbles: Kerry likes to play up his small business background. He and a partner started up a cookie business in Faneuil Hall called John's Cookies. Turns out (surprise, surprise, surprise) that Kerry stole the plans from an existing franchise.
4 Corruption? What corruption? Mac Ranger reminds us: I told you back here that Reid has serious Abramoff contacts over the years despite his protestations to the contrary.
4 However, THIS MAN is probably the most powerful man in Foggy Bottom – at least for now.

ONE WEEK LATER
= I’m not supporting any particular candidate right now. It's way too early, and I want to see who makes the grade. HOWEVER, I am happy that RUDY'S OFF AND RUNNING FOR PREZ: Republican 2008 White House front-runner Rudy Giuliani has quietly created an exploratory committee - the first step toward a run for the presidency.
= Some people believe that what Her Royal C wants her Royal C gets. Does Hillary want Reid out of the way?: The first rule of muckraking is nobody is pure. Pissed off about being passed over to replace J. Edgar? No problem. Spill the beans on Watergate….So why the sudden interest in Harry Reid's landholdings?
= I would have preferred seeing this months ago, although I doubt that the ball-less Repubs would have acted upon this info. Oh, hell, they've probably known for ages. Still, this can make things interesting :~) Pelosi's Land Deals May Put Reid's To Shame: It'll be interesting to watch what may turn up as people begin looking deeper into just how the Pelosi's have come to enjoy so much wealth.
= A silver lining in last Tuesday’s cloud? US Taking On Muqtada al-Sadr Forces: Finally the US is taking on the forces of Muqtada al-Sadr in Iraq. It seems the Democrat plan to withdrawal forces may have lit a fire of urgency in some corners of Iraq.
= Fess up: Are you an Archconservative, Leftwing Wacko, Antigovernment Libertine or a Commie Sympathizer? Take the test :~)

Don Surber: America just screwed itself: Democrats break their second promise What, only their second?
THE MONDAY AFTER TUESDAY’S ELECTION
a This should end the myth that Upstate NY is conservative. With the exception of 3 counties – Hamilton (pink), Alleghany and Wyoming (both barely pink) – this is one blue state. I live in Steuben, with the "X."
a Hope this makes those who voted for change happy. The Worst Case: There are people—there is no discreet way to put this—who pulled the lever last Tuesday that began the process of their own deaths.
a Letters to the NY Post editors: NEW YORK'S SHAME: RE-ELECTING DEMOCRATS
a Now that he's been re-elected, one of those scandal-scarred re-lected NY Dems is already trying to avoid prosecution.
a Funny & frightening: Sean Delonas gets it.
a Pat, at Brainster, is getting flack for declaring his support for McCain: 1) Getting On the Bus; 2) McCain Part Deux; 3) Still More McCain
Pat, y'know I luv ya, but have you already forgotten your own observations of McCain?
And remember THIS?: McCain's decision to support John Kerry over the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth is disappointing but not all that surprising.
Here's a golden oldie from the Limbaugh EIB Institute:~)
a A bright spot on the horizon? Joe Lieberman has not ruled out switching parties.
