Jim Bunning: Dumbass

Bunning and Specter are at the top of the list of GOP Senators that need to be defeated in primary, Specter for being a Democrat, Bunning for being criminally stupid.

Crazy Susan

Meet Senator Susan Collins (R - Bizarroworld):

Miss Collins, who calls herself a fiscal conservative, said her vote was driven by the need to break the impasse on the bill and insert some needed bipartisanship into the process.

"People don't want us to be the party that says no, just no," she said.

Which "People" were telling you that, Susan? I'm gonna go ahead and guess the answer to that question is something along the lines of Barack Obama, David Axelrod, and Rahm Emanuel.  Oh, and maybe a couple of your Senate colleagues.

Fiscal conservative my ass.

Shocka! Arlen Specter's Support Of Spendulus Hurts Him Back Home

Help us, Ob-Wan Ke-Toomey, you're our only hope.

A look inside the numbers shows the problem for Specter may be even more significant. Fifty-eight percent (58%) of Republican voters in the state are less likely to vote for Specter. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, just 27% are more likely to support the long-time incumbent while 48% are less likely to do so.

These numbers are not surprising given the partisan response to the stimulus bill itself. Nationwide, support for the stimulus legislation increased following President Obama’s nationally televised press conference earlier this week. Still, the legislation is perceived as being what Democrats want rather than a bipartisan product.

In Pennsylvania, 69% of Republicans oppose the package while 73% of Democrats favor it. Those not affiliated with either major party are evenly divided. That partisan divide places Specter in a difficult position. Even though Specter has aligned himself with the president and other Democrats on the stimulus, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has announced that the Pennsylvania Republican is one of their top targets for the 2010 election cycle.

Specter won re-election in 2004 by a 53% to 42% margin. However, he barely survived a conservative primary challenge from then-Congressman Pat Toomey. Even though he had the support of the state’s Republican establishment, Specter was able to defeat Toomey only by two points, 51% to 49%.

Obama and Crist: Superfriends!

If this doesn't kill his chances in 2012 (or any other year) then the GOP truly is a stupid party.

The most disheartening thing about the stimulus debate

Does it seem to anyone else that quite a few GOP Congressmen/Senators are voting against the spendulus bill because the Dems didn't let them help draft the disaster?  (As opposed to them voting against it because it's a bad idea.)

You're dead to me

Ugh...

“This compromise greatly improves the bill,” said Senator Susan Collins, a Maine Republican who also pushed for the cuts.
Why don't you, Snowe, and Specter just get it the fuck over with and switch parties or go the Jeffords route and declare yourselves "Independents," because, seriously, you're not fooling anybody anymore. 

Besides, I'd rather not have anyone in my party who's eager to force me to take a bite of the Shite Sandwich.

Security FAIL

Pete Hoekstra announces to the world that he and others had just landed in Iraq for a meeting on his Twitter account.  He then apparently wrote some badly misspelled prose, reflecting on his soulpatterns and mindthoughts.

Four GOP governors just made my list

They joined Democrat governors in signing a letter to President Obama supporting his "stimulus" bill:

1)  Gov. Charlie Crist of Florida
2)  Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger of California
3)  Gov. Jim Douglas of Vermont
4)  Gov. Jodi Rell of Connecticut

Boo, all of you.

Sen. Judd Gregg is a douche

He says he's convinced Democrat Gov. John Lynch to appoint a Republican to his empty seat.  The Republican who he's planning on appointing won't run for re-election when the seat is up in 2010 and "will not shy away from tax increases."

All this so he can provide The One with a little post-partisan cover.
