If true I wish those Republicans would identify themselves so their constituents can ask them about this during this month’s town hall meetings. Me, I’d tell them what I told a few friends the other day in response to some scandal, that Da TechGuy reminds me of today:
“Why would people vote Republican if the only difference between parties is that you aren’t as perverted and creepy as the other guys? Sure, maybe you’ll pick up a seat here and there, but until you can lay out the reasons why conservative policies trump progressive policies, you’re going to be stuck playing secondary characters in the Democrats’ never ending soap opera.”
When will they learn? If they want to commit political suicide, that’s fine. But do they have to take the country down with them? Good grief.
Gutierrez, who Maggie’s Notebook points out is the former leader of the Puero Rican socialist party, also said he can’t wait to get to conference, which is what we’ve been warning you about.
