WHILE THE BELTWAY TALKS CYBERSEX...:

Oil tumbles below $60 (Alex Lawler, 10/03/06, Reuters)

Oil tumbled $2 on Tuesday to below $60 a barrel, sinking to the lowest level since February and prompting OPEC's president to call on the exporter group to deepen supply cuts.

Prices fell for a second day, pressured by ample fuel stockpiles in top consumer the United States and no public evidence of other OPEC members joining Nigeria and Venezuela in cutting output.

Oh, I don't know. Doesn't this conflict with your general thesis that voters (say, Kansans) regularly vote values over their perceived pocketbook interest?

It's more important that the GOP is anti-gay than that it's produced a great economy. A dirty talking congressman matters not a whit.

I wouldn't worry about this little game of cybersex that Mark Foley played much longer. Seems as though the Dems/media got caught doing a cut-and-paste job of Speaker Hastert's remarks. Besides, I don't think either side has the heart to go into this much further.

I continue to be amazed that the Republicans clean house and the Democrats do not. Explain to me again how there's no difference between the two parties.

The only problem that exists, are the people who want to increase the tax on this product that the free world needs. I will not wait for the -o-'s response, lower prices, freer people.
