Sliding through to primaries victories yesterday were a couple of our old favourites on this US Snooze and Politics bored,  Sen Orrin Hatch of Utah and Rep Charlie Rangel of New York.

Their retention of their seats was energized by Geritol™ and helped along by Metamucil™. Both  these great statesmen were favored by older voters, who show up more often than their younger cohorts, and are more dependably predictable, which makes them a lot like the people they vote for.

Story is at the Los Angeles Times -- latimes.com.

Hatch was endorsed by Sarah Palin despite his opponent, Dan Liljenquist's, tea party credentials. Rangel's opponent was Adriano Espaillat, an up-and-coming Dominican-American.

There'll be no significant changes in Congress this year. We'll see the same old faces returning in 2013, running their same old song and dance, passing jobs bills with no jobs in them, moaning and groaning that Congress (that's them) is spending too much, while at the same time they pass more tax cuts for their rich pals. Anybody who points out that they're under-funding government operations by about 18 per cent, year after year, will be ignored.

It looks like the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing, but appearances are deceiving. Orrin Hatch and Charlie Rangel and the rest of em know exactly what they're doing. That's why their campaign donors and the amounts they spend are big secrets.

 "What do you call a Senator who’s served in office for 18 years? You call him home." 


This is what Orrin said when he ran for Frank Moss's seat  36 years ago.   

Bush's "de-Bathification program" eliminated all vestiges of Sunni power in Iraqi society and set the stage for the Sunni insurrection against American occupation and the new Shiite-led government. Bush disbanded the entire Sunni-dominated Iraqi Army and bureaucracy. He didn't change it. He didn't make it more inclusive of Shiites and Kurds. He just disbanded it. It is no accident that two of the top commanders of today's ISIL are former commanders in the Saddam-era Iraqi military.
