On the former:

Attendees at a conservative conference in town [D.C.] this week will have the opportunity to whack a pinata of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Conservative Political Action Conference “CPAC” begins Thursday here in D.C. and will feature a party Friday evening where guests will have the opportunity to whack a Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) piñata.

On the other hand, Harry Reid will be there in punching bag form. Is there some gender discrimination going on there? Why aren’t they both piñatas – or punching bags?

My state rep and Republican candidate for Ohio Treasurer, Josh Mandel, will be a panelist, along with Stephen Baldwin and others at CPAC:

Saving Freedom for Future Generations
Marriott Ballroom
Kevin McCullough and Stephen Baldwin, XPAC
Jason Mattera, Young America’s Foundation and author of Obama Zombies: How the Liberal Machine Brainwashed My Generation
Rep. Joshua Mandel (OH)

Jeff Frazee, Young Americans for Liberty

I sure hope we don’t get reports or photos back that he participated or otherwise condoned the event. I also wonder what Republican Mayor of Walton Hills, Marlene Anielski, thinks about the CPAC party plans – seeing that she’s running to replace Mandel.

Other Republicans it’s been suggested to check in with and why

Maine’s US SenatorSusan Collins and Idaho Republican Mike Crapo who co-sponsored Amy Klobuchar’s S. Res. 327, an Oct. 2009 resolution supporting the goals and ideals of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2009. did as well. It passed by unanimous consent.

The House version, H. Res. 817, authored by Al Green (D-TX9), was co-sponsored by Judy Biggert (R-IL13), Dan Burton (R-IN5), Shelly Capito (R-WV2), Michael Conaway (R-TX11), Erik Paulson (R-MN3), Ted Poe (R-TX2), Bill Posey (R-FL15) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL18). It passed by unanimous consent. Burton and Poe also co-sponsored H.R. 840 Military Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Act that was introduced on Feb. 3, 2009.

Crapo sponsored, and Louisiana’s U.S. Senator who is up for re-election, David Vitter co-sponsored, S. Res. 391 A resolution recognizing the 25th anniversary of the enactment of the Victims of Crime Act of 1984. It passed by unanimous consent on Jan. 21.

On the latter:

An Oklahoma County judge has extended a temporary restraining order that blocks enforcement of a strict abortion law. The law would require doctors to report personal information about women who seek abortions and for the information to be posted on a public Web site.

The law was to have taken effect Nov. 1. District Judge Daniel Owens said Friday the restraining order would remain in force until a lawsuit seeking to throw out the law is resolved. A hearing is set for Feb. 19.

Does anyone else think that the Oklahoma legislature should spend its obviously not so precious time passing legislation that would require men who are treated for erectile dysfunction to provide analogously personal information and have it “posted on a public Web site”?

    Shalom Jill,

    It’s all about diversity.

    Some Republicans like to punch while others prefer to whack.
