'We have no conservative party in Washington'

MSNBC talk show host Joe Scarborough, speaking Tuesday in Birmingham about the Bush administration's out-of-control spending and its potential electoral effects on congressional Republicans in 2006: "Right now we have no conservative party in Washington, D.C. ... The only thing the Republican Party has going for it is the Democratic Party."

During his speech, Scarborough also joked about his battles against the Machine while he was an undergraduate at the University of Alabama. Or at least he would have if the Machine existed. Which it doesn't. So he didn't. Move along, please.

Oh the machine exists in politics in Troy and @ Alabama. If you want to hold an elected position in the school government you have to garner the "machine's" support or the sorority bloc vote. I don't know if that is what Joe was referring too, but let me insist that it goes in fact exist.

I know it exists at UA. I was being facetious.
