Sen. Dorgan on Wednesday displays a bottle of Pelosi's Pickled Patriotism - the Democrats' counter to Republican nationalism.

Posted by: Hoodlumman at June 22, 2005 02:56 PM

And I'm out... and if you're buying for the winners, Will, you owe me and the boys at FIU a case of the good stuff.

We're thinking Heineken... or maybe Miller High Life.

Will,...Have you seen WunderKrauts comment over at Hoodlumman?...He is determind to win this week! I kind of thought I was going to win with my comment about Jocelyn Elders!...but NO...Hoodlumman always gets the prize! Dad gum it!

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 22, 2005 08:36 PM

Rumors of PayPal under the table are 100% false and completely unfounded. It's a rumor put out by some right wing conspiracy.

Not to mention as this blog grows in popularity, more people will participate and the odds of winning will fall.

Either that or I'll have to up the amount of palm greasing.

Posted by: Hoodlumman at June 22, 2005 08:41 PM

What a greaser!...I should have known. . .

Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., shows how much "fire water" he is prepared to give Native Americans to trick them into giving up their remaining piece of land in North Dakota.

Posted by: WunderKraut at June 23, 2005 06:53 PM

Zsa Zsa, I've got nothing. My one post is so lame. Oh well, I all but cede this round to Hoodlumman. Rats.

Maybe next week.

Posted by: WunderKraut at June 23, 2005 06:55 PM

I am kind of fond of the; I squish your head like a grape comment! What do you think WunderKraut?... As a matter of fact it is so great I can't seem to get it out of my head!...I Squish your head like a grapereally makes me happy!

Posted by: Zsa Zsa at June 23, 2005 08:25 PM

I actually like the 'fire-water' comment...it's funny.....

"That's right friends, through the magical use of modern science, I was able to distill the integrity of the Democratic caucus into tangible jelly... I was just a little surprised to find out that it only filled the jar up this much."

Always needling his colleagues, Senator Dorgan displays the urine specimen from Senator Kennedy's escapade in Chappaquiddick. He whimsically noted that there were three more jars just like it.
