Bad week for the Republicans 

Last week's rulings -- outlawing vouchers and Republican efforts to gerrymander the congressional redistricting maps -- left the Grand Old Party sputtering vows to appeal. Meanwhile, Rush Limbaugh erupted in anger after investigators looking for proof that he illegally obtained drugs raided his doctor's offices.

Oh, and by the way, the congressman who represents Colorado Springs is named Joel Hefley.

I haven't really thought about since it came out this week. I'm not thrilled or unthrilled about that. -  - Who is your congressman and what has he done for you lately? Scott McInnis. And he has done nothing, but that's what I want him to do for me.

He is a very good commentator. -  - What do you think about his drug habit, given his past vitriol against drug dealers? That had to do with his back.

I'm all for the vouchers. You got a lot of people that want to have a choice where they send their kids to school. That's the way it should be.

It's ironic and it's so amusing. -  - What do you think about Republicans losing the fight for congressional redistricting? That's wonderful. I don't think they should be able to redistrict whenever they want to. They have to follow the constitution. -  - Who is your congressman and what has he done for you lately? I couldn't tell you either one of those.
