The Incredible Heaviness of Being…
…a dyed in the wool curmudgeon. Every once in a while the mainstream media produces a sappy and sentimental piece of tripe that almost convinces me to feel sympathetic. ALMOST! This from the washingtOOn post:
Colleagues Pass Tribute To Lawmaker’s Daughter

Had things turned out differently, Caroline Pryce Walker would have graduated from high school this month.
Instead, her mother, Rep. Deborah Pryce, stood on the House floor Wednesday evening and introduced a bill in Caroline’s name that would boost research funding for pediatric cancer — the kind that killed Caroline nine years ago.
“This is our graduation gift to her,” said Pryce, an Ohio Republican, choking back tears. She is retiring in December after 16 years in Congress, choosing to care for her daughter Mia, whom she adopted in 2002, three years after Caroline’s death.
Pryce, the only member of Congress who is a single mother of a young child, was once a rising star in the GOP. But she was facing a tough reelection fight in a district that is increasingly leaning Democratic, and she was growing tired of trying to balance work in Washington with home life in Ohio. So she decided not to run again.
Lets talk about this filthy repub pryce. She is one of the useless dogs that got swept into office in the 1994 “gingrinch revolution.” This is the rotten group that foisted the “contract on america” on YOU damn fools. I never bought it, and in concert with the slick willy radical moderate democratic leadership council agenda, it lead to the failed bush agenda that our country is now suffering the effects of. This woman pryce is simply another of the two parties of the apocalypse unindited co-conspirators. She and the rest of the useless dogs in our federal government have screwed us. Good riddance to her.
Support and vote for the only candidate for president that will solve our problems!
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I are fed up with the useless apologists of our failed government in the mainstream media!
