Sorry, folks, but, as much as I agree this bill is a disaster for America, calling these eight RINOs "traitors" is beyond the line. Here's why: The word "traitor" has specific reference to national loyalty. Benedict Arnold was a traitor, as were spies like John Walker, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, and Aldrich Hazen Ames. The traditional penalty for treason is death, though in recent decades that sentence has been all but forgotten in the U.S., though not in other nations.
When somebody promises you they will take a certain course of action not involving national loyalty, but then does another, they are a rat, a double-crosser, or a jerk, but they are not a traitor because national security is not jeopardized by their failure to do what they promised to do. The Obama-Waxman-Markey bill will certainly burden the U.S. economy, but it won't destroy it. Thus, referring to the eight GOP members who voted for the bill is unjustified.
But isn't "cap and traitor" simply an acceptable rhetorical device whereas "General Betrayus" is self-evidently character assassination? "Rules for Radicals" author Saul Alinsky, President Obama's inspiration, would see both terms as illustrations of his principle of isolating opponents, discrediting them and making them objects of disgust, hatred and villification.
First of all, Mr. Pack A Day Smoker Of Cock*, you make the false comparison between when Code Pink and KOS used the "General Betrayus" ads and our attacks on the eight RINOs who helped push Cap & Trade over the finish line. Only problem? Code Pink has never been on the side of the military and the Generals they attacked, while we are lashing out at people who ostensibly should be on our side. We are just trying to keep our side in check, while Code Pink's sole intent was to heckle and humiliate a proud warrior.
Secondly, we have not taken out full page ads in newspapers before the vote even took place attacking wavering RINOs like the shitfucks on the left did before Petraeus even spoke before Congress. We lobbied our representatives. We called and emailed them. They ignored us, so fuck them and anybody who defends them.
Thirdly, Dudley Dipshit, who cares if we are discrediting our ELECTED FUCKING REPRESENTATIVES who we send to Congress to do what we ask them to do, and FUCKING HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR FUCKING VOTES? THAT'S THE WHOLE FUCKING POINT OF A REPRESENTATIVE REPUBLIC! We lobbied our representatives. We called and emailed them. They ignored us, so fuck them and anybody who defends them. And we can do WHAT THE FUCK WE WANT TO THEM BY VIRTUE OF OUR VOTES AND DONATIONS. WE HAVE THE POWER OVER THEM, NOT THEM OVER US. Maybe they, and you, need a wake up call.
Finally, fuck you, you arrogant, elitist, BELTWAY, COCKTAIL PARTY ASSFISH. That's why. We deserve the right to express our views however we wish, and if you don't like it, I think you know what I think of your options over this matter.
Thank you, and have a pleasant evening.

Not only was he having an affair with a woman from Argentina, but he was taking taxpayer-funded trips to Argentina as well.
Way to go, champ.
P.S. - I love that the picture they used for this article shows Gov. David Paterson in the background. Some affairs are more equal than others, I suppose.

I hope she divorces you and takes you for every penny you have or will have. It's bad enough you cheated, now public humiliation as well? Good job! (and I apologize to jackasses for the comparison)
I would stompyboot you but your ick is too horrible to get on the boots.
The 2012 race will be between Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin, as they will be the only potential nominees who haven't had (or admitted to) affairs.

Tang's ads for years have bragged that his restaurant is where George Bush goes for Chinese food. His website is down, but there are still many many articles proclaiming GOP love for Heaven Dragon's Chinese cuisine.
Funny thing is, despite living relatively close to Heaven Dragon, I've never eaten there. I even lived two blocks from it for a while. Strip mall Chinese just doesn't do that much for me. I'd heard rumors to the effect that they served dog there, and that the owner was a drug dealer, but I'd dismissed them as neighborhood craziness.

Update: Here is a link to an actual story. It's worse and more Gavin Newsome-esque than originally thought. The woman he cheated on his wife with was a campaign staffer married to someone who worked in his Senate office.

I think if the GOP leadership can't get their shit together by 2010 or 2012, there's either going to be a major purging of the current GOP leadership, or a significant third party will emerge in response in a way that will rattle the DC establishment in a profound manner.
Conservatives as a general rule don't want their lives to revolve around government and politics, so it isn't an environment that we're comfortable being in. All that said, conservatives are beginning to feel cornered and overwhelmed, and will soon see no other alternative but to get fully involved in politics, as campaign workers, as operatives, as strategists, as activists, as candidates. Conservatives aren't going to be happy about it, either.

And the claims that the GOP wants to censor journalists begin in 3...2...1...
Allah highlights the most idiotic part:
“To me, the greatest threat to America is not necessarily a recession or even another terrorist attack. The greatest threat to America is a liberal media bias.”Yeah, because liberal bias kills people and steals their money for a bunch of government boondoggles. Well, it may actually help with the latter, but still.
Worst of all, this sure as hell blunts our arguments against the re-imposition of the fairness doctrine, doesn't it? When you've got a GOP Congressman implying that there's a problem with the fact that most MSM reporters donate to the Dems, and that we need a caucus to deal with that, doesn't that hand the other side a pretty effective talking point about talk radio?

"Will you join the Republican National Committee by making a contribution today?
Yes (check an amount)
Yes I support the RNC, but I am unable to participate at this time. However I have enclosed $12 to cover the cost of tabulating my survey
No I favor electing liberal democrats over the next 10 years.
This is it? As Chad says, where's your fucking plan, geniuses? Is this your plan? This sort of offhand threat? If I didn't know any better I'd say the GOP favors electing liberal Democrats over the next 10 years. The GOP is fucking useless.
