Chutz-pah, n.

"Brazeness, gall." (Yiddish)
Use it in a sentence? Try this one:

"Cheney says Democrats on 'destructive path.'"

Now that's chutzpah.

What Does Hillary Want (From Me?)

Have I not paid proper obeissance?
Have I not given her her due?
Have I not suffered through these fifteen months of "ClintonII: This Time It's Personal?"

I have an idea for her: why doesn't she do like the late Sen. George Aiken (R-VT) suggested the U.S. do to disengage from Vietnam during that war -- just say she won and go home.

What does she want (from me)?

Who Says You Can't Get A Plumber On Weekends?

It's the weekend. Your toilet's backed up. You can get someone to come out, but it will take two days, and be rather expensive. Nearly $2 billion, to be exact. Besides, it's not really your money. It's our money.

Congratulations, NASA, on making the most expensive service call in history.
I just wonder -- did they at least try first to just jiggle the handle?
