“Did you see the photo of the president shaking hands with Castro? Oh, I meant the photo of Richard Nixon shaking hands with Fidel Castro. He put the five-finger grip on Mao Tse-tung, too. Their records on human rights are pretty well known, but somehow the Republicans have a bad case of memory loss about those photos. McCain slipped Muammar Gaddafi ‘five’ also, but he seems to have forgotten that while taking Pres. Obama to task for his greeting to Raul Castro.”
“Reid and Obama just guaranteed another shut down by invoking the nuclear option. Only this one may be longer and nastier than any in history. Hold on to your hats, the man that claimed he would unite America has driven a stake in any hope of that goal.”

NEW YORK — The holidays bring out the inner-coffee table book obsessive in gift buyers. They're easy, weighty and satisfying to give. You've done your job with your pricey treat.
PHOENIX — A legislative panel may be ready to jettison plans to try to build a border fence, having gathered less than $265,000 in donations over three years.
John McCain is still seething about the government shutdown and those darn conservative upstarts who caused it. For no good reason, the lives of thousands were interrupted in “real and painful” ways.
“No need to be sad Sen. McCain. People still remember your running for president and the elevator you had installed for your car. Also in the ready room of every US Military airbase I’m sure there is a poster of you in your flight suit with the inscription — ‘hey blank-blank these things are expensive, Don’t McCain your plane!’ ”
PHOENIX — Tom Horne is crowing that he's leading a GOP primary challenger and his likely Democratic foe — or at least he was.

Looks like I made a minor error in my recent letter (Tribune, Oct. 9; evtnow.com/5xz). It was Plessy v. Ferguson that declared racial segregation in schools legal, not Brown v. Board of Education. I wish the Tribune would correct those errors when they’re made. I admit it, I goofed.

I always thought the Democrats were only interested in my money, and not my opinions. Now, I know.”

“So they decided to bomb Syria. Uh, I think too much time has passed since the initial incident for this to have its intended effect. It’s kind of like training a dog. When the dog misbehaves, you have to correct the behavior immediately (and I don’t mean by violence), or the dog doesn’t know what the punishment is for.”
President Obama’s decision to defer to Congress the decision about whether to slap around Syria was a pure political masterstroke.
