Snowe? Really?
We're starting to pick up hints that the White House is making another serious bid to pick up the vote of Sen. Olympia Snowe. Really? If they do it and get a reasonable bill, great. But it's exceedingly difficult for me to see that as a realistic possibility.

Q: What is the worlds largest deliberative body which resembles a punching bag?
A: Senate Democrats.

Haiti 50,000-100,000 dead.

Sounds more like what I expected in the ballpark than hundreds of thousands reported earlier. Just for comparison estimated from previous events.

1999 turkey 17,000
2003 Iran 27,000
2004 tsunami 230,000
2005 pakistan 80,000
2008 china 70,000

Jets or Giants

I had breakfast about every morning when I am in town, or I should say, several mornings, at the Regency. I see my friends the Tisches. Steve Tisch is my close personal friend. I have been to more Giants games. I spent the holidays, I had lunch over the holidays with Woody Johnson. We met for the first time. I am happy for his team.

What type of answer is that for someone who wants to represent the common man of NY? What a jackass.

"Something happened a long time ago in Haiti, and people might not want to talk about it," he said. "They were under the heel of the French...and they got together and swore a pact to the Devil. They said, we will serve you if you'll get us free from the French.

"True story. And the Devil said, 'OK it's a deal,'" Robertson said. "Ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after another."
