Yesterday, one of the last of a disappearing breed, commonly known as a M-o-d-e-r-a-t-e R-e-p-u-b-l-i-c-a-n was sent packing from his long held seat in the U. S. Senate, Richard Lugar of Indiana. He was beat by a Tea Bagger candidate who seems to be in a hurry to cash a taxpayer funded paycheck for doing absolutely nothing if he's elected.
The candidate, Richard Mourdock (T-eaBagistan) said this about his views on how to get things undone in Washington:
"I certainly think that bipartisanship ought to consist of Democrats coming to the Republican point of view."
Talk about that dreaded Tea Bagger four letter word: Welfare. (They aren't good with numbers.) Sign up Mourdock for the government version! Say no, get paid. Ka-Ching!
So who has now rushed in to embrace the newest potential obstructionist? Why that would be none other than Marco Rubio, in his haste to run back to the Tea Baggie side of the aisle to grab any voters he lost when he crossed over to the other side of Wall Street, in the event that his Veep dreams all come true and Romney snaps him up. (Good luck with that.) Plus, who knows better about getting elected to the U.S. Senate, and then doing absolutely nothing once you get there than Marco Rubio, am I right?
In a news release after Mourdock’s victory, Rubio said he was “proud to announce Reclaim America PAC’s endorsement of Richard Mourdock, and to offer my personal support as well,” and called Mourdock part of “a new wave of limited-government leaders that will come to Washington to stand up to the status quo in both parties.”
Sure Marco. Keep up the act that there are really "two" branches in the Republican Party, wink, wink. Tea's and R's, when we all know there's only one, and it accepts big corporate cash in return for squeezing every penny out of that "limited government" that it can. Only the true believers are still in the dark.
Also, in the Florida endorsement race, we have the contest between two of perhaps the most infantile Republican candidates the state has ever witnessed, Connie Bono Mack IV and former Senator Stand-In George LeMieux.
Well, I guess that Rand Paul hasn't gotten enough attention lately, what with Daddy running around the country like the crazy Uncle who thinks he's running for President every four years or so. I guess Rand is still trying to convince others he's relevant, because he has come forward to endorse Mack.
Tough break there, George. Again. Always a Stand-In, never a Senator.
What this really means is more entertainment to come from the Mack-LeMieux slug-fest while we watch Mr. Hollywood pretend that he's really just a down home Tea Bagger at heart. Or a libertarian, or whatever. He's got his work cut out for him there, as I don't recall seeing many true Tea Baggies walking a red carpet and hanging out with celebrities on a regular basis, unless you count Ted Nugent as a celebrity, and quite frankly, who does? Well, besides Mitt Romney.
Yes, I think we may need some popcorn for this next round.
Your move George.
