PUNDIT PRESS HAS MOVED
Today marks a very exciting day as we launch the new and improved Pundit Press. We have joined forces with High Plains Pundit to design a new website to provide our readers with even more news and information.
Here is the link that will direct you to the new Pundit Press website: http://thepunditpress.com/
This new partnership will also include all 3 of Danny R. Butcher's (aka High Plains Pundit) internet radio shows, Nightly Review, The Danny R. Butcher Show, and Sunday Night Sports Talk.
A special thank you to all of the Pundit Press readers out there for your continued support. We are very excited about what the future holds for Pundit Press, and we hope that you continue with us on this journey.

So why was he not paying "sufficient attention"? Just look back two weeks, to the October 17th transcript, in which he wasn't even there:
Or another absence from November 1999:
Or this confused response from November 2000?
So he got better with experience, eh? From May 2001, what about following talk of the Energy and Environment Committee meeting with... birthday wishes?
Wow. The bill of the century.
