Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

The Senate is often called the "millionaires' club," but some of its members would feel the pain if a blown budget deadline costs them their paychecks.
Provisions in the "No Budget, No Pay" debt ceiling bill that is headed to the Senate floor would impound senators' salaries if the upper chamber doesn't approve a budget by April 15.
For most of the upper chamber, the loss of the $174,000 annual salary would be no hardship. Many senators are millionaires many times over, having earned substantial fortunes outside of politics.
But for a small group of senators whose net worth is measured in thousands instead of millions, the passage of .No Budget, No Pay. would put their very livelihoods at risk.
"We're not all millionaires," Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) told The Hill. "When I splurge, it's on a Ravens t-shirt."
Instapundit: "To be fair, they charge extra for XXXL."
I mean seriously, you hosers screw with our livelihoods every day. It's about damn time we returned the favor.
"As much as I love my job and my constituents, I have bills to pay," said Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska).
Gee Lisa, if you really cared about your "constituents" you wouldn't have screwed over Joe Miller. You remember Joe Miller, don't you Lisa? He's the guy your constituents chose fair and square in the primary election. Maybe you can take out a mortgage on your big ego to pay some of those bills.
Oh, and here's a thought. Do your job.
"As a non-millionaire senator, I am certainly in a different spot than someone who is independently wealthy," Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) said.
Debbie's got the time to cavort with Rachel Ray. And she's a central planner on a scale that would make the old Soviet Politburo proud. Which I suppose doesn't leave her a heckuva lot of room in her schedule to worry about trivial stuff like the National Budget.
Hunger focuses the mind Debbie. Take it from the residents of Detroit, where 50 years of Democrat rule has pretty much ensured everyone there is hungry. Except for the Ruling Class, of course. You guys always manage to take care of yourselves first.
Think of what John Boehner and the House did as leveling the playing field.
