Wednesday Morning Open Thread

Good morning.

The health care battle is engaged. We’re going to find out which politicians are owned by the insurance companies. Because we shouldn’t kid ourselves, there are many members who put them, not their constituents, first. And, they better be prepared for the scrutiny.

And, I’m just so glad I don’t have to watch any more Terry McAuliffe t.v. ads. They were so painful. Congrats to the Creigh Deeds team. They really did an amazing job. No one would have predicted his victory a couple weeks ago — especially by the blowout margin.

On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
