Two or Three Reasons to Vote GOP on November 7

Jeebus H. Cripes, Santorum's outfit sure screams teh gay!

And no one from Indiana, my home state, is on the list. I don't know whether to be pleased or disgusted. Indiana doesn't have thieves of that caliber, but it does have its share of ideological idiots.

You forgot..

the crooked cop Bernard Kerik,CPA head L.Paul "Jerry" Bremer,George "Slam Dunk" Tenet,Douglas Feith of the Pentagon Office of Special Plans,his boss,Donald Rumsfeld,Paul Wolfowitz,Richard Perle,General Tommy "who needs a friggin' post-war plan,I'm off to the lecture circuit" Franks,and last but not least,

..convicted embezzler,Iranian double-agent,Ahmed "Kingfish" Chalabi.Where is he now, I wonder?

Bluebear2 said...

Oops, you forgot John Doolittle, Ca. another one of Abramoff's boys!

res ipsa loquitur said...

Santorum ought to be defeated simply for wearing that tie.

That picture of Bush and Mussgrave freaks me the fuck out.

ExHack said...

Yes, Michael forgot all of those previously enumerated. But for all those omissions, it's STILL the most comprehensive list of Rethug scandal I've seen. Jeezus, have they really sunk that low?

Don't forget Denny Hastert and his staff, who coddled and protected the sex predator. Also, the Roskam campaign in Illinois, which called double-amputee war vet Tammy Duckworth a cut-and-runner, and Roskam's hired gun Jason Roe, who went on TV to defend it (earning him a Worst Person In The World from Olbermann.)

And you forgot to mention the "Contract with America" the Republicans made, in what, 1994 or 96 to clean up Congress or they would leave.
