The Blame Game
beer, meetmeme, Backyard
Most of my friends acknowledge when they mess up. You own up to it, you learn, you move on. Not so in Congress. No, the Republicans try to muddle the message, surround themselves with children so as to prevent hard questions from being asked, and then, when all else fails, blame the media and the Democrats.


Oh, and they get Fox News to list the pedophile as a Democrat. Just to be clear, the pedophile is a Republican, and so are the people who covered it up, ignored it, and ultimately hoped it would just go away. And somehow, the Republicans are managing to confuse gay bashing and fucking underage pages. Not sure how they are doing on that front, but if anyone votes for those fucktards next month, they will have managed it.

If pro is the the opposite of con, what is the opposite of progress?

Better luck next time.

I like how the article says that "as someone has said in Washington before: 'The buck stops here.'"

That "someone" was Harry Truman, who was NOT a Republican. I still remember Bush using FDR quotes out of context in his last campaign and never attributing them. Ahhh... when the going gets tough...

Hey! If Hassert did resign, it'd be three in a row on Republicans leaving the position of Speaker of the House in disgrace.

Let's see... Newt Gingrich left amidst ethics violations, Bob Livingston was elected to the position but resigned before he started because Larry Flynt had naked pictures of him.

Hmm... what's worst - Using the GOPAC political action committee as a slush fund (Gingrich), Cheating on your wife while wasting millions on the Clinton witch hunt, or turning a blind eye to sexual misconduct among fellow congressmen... It's just so hard to pick.
