Turning Up the Heat on Bushco's PNAC Cronies
There is much business to attend to before the Dems take power in Jan. '07. While our vote last week ensures Dem control it does little to staunch the flow of last ditch attempts by the GOP and this President to put key Project for the New American Century members and supporters in place while they may still have the ability to do so. Just yesterday this President again insisted he wanted Bolton confirmed before the Dems take over.

John Bolton is a full fledged member of the PNAC. This is not the man we want nor need heading the UN body. He is a warmongering rubber stamper to this Administration's foot stomping tirade on the Middle East and beyond. The PNAC's Rebuilding America's Defenses document lays out the agenda we have witnessed by this administration for the past 6 years and clearly shows us the direction they intend to continue.

With Bolton as head of the UN we can only expect more war and more death to the American soldiers and to those This President and his PNAC cronies wage war against. Please call your elected officials today; both outgoing and incoming. Demand they do not confirm this UN nomination. The lame ducks in Congress are desperate to hold some semblance of control. It is up to us to hold them accountable.

Sources say Ken Mehlman will step down
Several Republican sources are claiming that Ken Mehlman is planning to step down from his position as Republican National Committee Chairman at the end of the year. His leaving the RNC is most likely caused by this week's defeat of Republicans in both the House and the Senate.

CNN has more:

Two sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Mehlman has made clear to close associates for some time he was likely to leave after the 2006 elections -- and that there is no dissatisfaction with his performance in the midterm cycle. A third source confirmed Mehlman's leaving is a good possibility but said a final decision has not been made. "It would be wrong to call it a done deal," this source said.

Conrad Burns concedes

The AP is now reporting that Conrad Burns has conceded the Senate race in Montana to Democrat Jon Tester.


HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Conrad Burns conceded defeat to Jon Tester on Thursday, acknowledging that a tight election had gone to the Democrats' favor, Burns' campaign told The Associated Press. Burns, a three-term senator whose campaign was troubled by verbal gaffes and voter discontent, congratulated Tester, a farmer and state legislator. "I stand ready to help as Montana transitions to a new United States Senator," Burns said in a statement provided to the AP. "We fought the good fight and we came up just a bit short. We've had a good 18 years and I am proud of my record." Burns, 71, did not plan any public appearances Thursday, his campaign said.

Bush To Make Statement at 11:35(EST)
Bush to make statement from Rose Garden at 11:35 EST

EDIT: Bush pretty much just acknowledged that the Democrats have won both the House and the Senate. He says we need to work together to move America forward, yet at the same time he is saying that we must pass what he wants to be passed. It was very short, he didn't say much, didn't take any questions, and it was obviously just aimed at making him look like he's in charge. It didn't work, and instead he came off as angry and frustrated.

Projection: Webb wins VA - Dems win control of the Senate
The Associated Press has declared that Democrat Jim Webb has won the Senate seat in Virginia. Republican George Allen still has not conceded in the race, but sources say he may do so tomorrow.


WASHINGTON - Democrats wrested control of the Senate from Republicans Wednesday with an upset victory in Virginia, giving the party complete domination of Capitol Hill for the first time since 1994, as NBC News reported that Democrat Jim Webb was the apparent winner.

Webb’s apparent squeaker win over incumbent Sen. George Allen effectively gave Democrats their 51st seat in the Senate, an astonishing turnabout at the hands of voters unhappy with Republican scandal and unabated violence in Iraq. Allen was the sixth Republican incumbent senator defeated in Tuesday’s elections.

Rumors are flying!
There are rumors flying around that Dennis Hastert may shortly resign his seat in the House. Rumor, I repeat, RUMOR is that the reason he'll be resigning is because his pension will be higher if he resigns as Speaker than if he just serves our his term or resigns after he is no longer Speaker. We'll see if this develops into anything.

Update: C-SPAN BREAKING NEWS - Speaker Dennis Hastert Will Not Seek GOP Leadership Post

Update II: WASHINGTON - Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., told fellow Republican lawmakers on Wednesday he does not intend to run for minority leader when Democrats take control of the House in January, officials said. Hastert conveyed word in a conference call one day after Republicans lost control of the House in midterm elections. The officials who described Hastert's plans did so on condition of anonymity, saying they did not want to pre-empt a formal announcement.

AP Calling Montana for Tester
HELENA, Mont. - Republican Sen. Conrad Burns ost his job in a squeaker of a race Wednesday, thrust from office due to his own gaffes, his ties to convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff and a determined campaign by Democrat Jon Tester, a farmer. Tester's win gave Democrats at least half the U.S. Senate, but the party still needs a victory in a tight Virginia race to gain control.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting Wednesday, Tester had 198,032 votes, or 49.1 percent, to Burns' 194,904 votes, or 48.3 percent.

Still no news from the Burns campaign yet.
