    Say, Jack, since it appears that Ted Kennedy is nowhere near the top of your Christmas Card list... are there any folks in congress who you do like?

    Hi Shea!

    Hmm...George Allen seems like a decent guy--but thats as far as I know. South Carolina's Jim Demint is in his first term--so he's ok so far. Give him time though...

    You bring up a good point though, Shea, who is there to like in Congress?

    I know, seriously. I wish there could be more than like 5 people in congress that I admire. What a tragedy- these are the people our children should be looking up to- but in reality they are the people we should avoid becoming.


    Whats next, is John Kerry going to write a book about a cat called "Golddigging Manwhore?" Tom DeLay going to write a fictional narrative about a laundromat?

    To be honest, most congressmen and -women are pretty much unknown to me. I have a suspicion most Americans are just as unfamiliar with them, even with their own representatives. We mostly notice the ones that become notable for some reason, which means they are picked by the media. Yikes.

    I like to go on vote-smart.org here and there. It has profiles and bios of all elected officials in congress, their voting record, how their voting positions align with certain interest groups. Some of them (all of them should) have also replied to a personal questionnaire that goes through all different political issues from economic to social beliefs and how they feel they are working, what should be done, etc. Great website.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".


Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.


Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.


In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
