Stupid Republican Senatorial Tricks

posted by Bill Arnett @ 10:21 AM Permalink

I'm watching Judd Gregg (R-Revisionist History) on C-Span 2 right now and the man stood at the mike with bare face hanging out there and actually had the nerve to say, "It's just not in the interest of the United States for Iraq to fall into chaos." He continued with the tried old crap about "…we're fighting them over there so we don't have to fight 'em here," and the equally tired old, "Once they have taken over Iraq, the rest of the Middle East will become part of the caliphate that wants to destroy America and every single American living."

Does there exist a single Republican Senator (especially the ones ["Oh, so brave!"] calling for a change in Iraq, but still backing their loser president) that doesn't just speak pure pap? Are all these rethug senators so afraid of Iraqi insurgents that their wives have to drag them out from underneath the bed to go to work while their children eat breakfast wearing flak vest and helmets?

And Gregg's main purpose was to tell everyone that "the rights of the minority party" aren't being sufficiently protected, so everything will be filibustered, whether it's a good thing for America or not, and that nothing will overcome the tyranny of the Republican minority.

Nothing passes the Senate without 60 votes to overcome the lethargy of the rethug obstructionists.
