Actually, I discovered long ago that all Republicans are disgusting. But some are more disgusting that others. Consider the case of John Bolton. He has now been exposed by more than one person (his own Republicans, by the way) as an absolutely disgusting bully who seemingly will stop at nothing to get his way. The worst kind of bully who picks on those so far beneath his status they have no chance of defending themselves other than by complaining (which up until now seems to have not helped them much). In fact he appears to be a genuine example of a rotten son-of-a-bitch. So it will be interesting to see this week what the Republicans will do. Do you think they are going to say, "we know he's a rotten son-of-a-bitch, but he's our rotten son-of-a-bitch? Probably.
Then we have the case of the ethically handicapped Tom DeLay who insists his only problem is that the Democrats are picking on him. Poor boy. Just because the House changed the rules on the Ethics Committee for no other reason than to protect him is no reason to suspect him of wrongdoing. Just because he was admonished three times for violations is no reason to suspect him of wrongdoing. Just because he may be indicted in Texas, etc., etc. Let's face it, this is another absolutely rotten son-of-a-bitch who probably makes Bolton look like a saint.
We also have Frist and Lott who seem to think that the filibuster is basically an attack on God. Where do the Republicans even find these guys? I guess when Republicans use the filibuster it is not an attack on God? These guys are so unbelievably hypocritical it leaves one speechless. But there you have it - Republican role models. With guys like Bolton, DeLay, Frist, Lott (and many others just as bad) Republicans are leading us on to even more glory than up to now.
Democrats are not without their own rotten bastards. At least 18 of them, and one Independent voted for the debtslavery bill. Let's remember it in 2006 and beyond.
I guess you are all aware that the United States is 49th in the world for literacy. We are 28th our of 40 countries in mathematical literacy. Twenty percent of Americans believe the sun revolves around the earth. U.S. childhood poverty now ranks 22nd, second to last among developed nations, only Mexico scores lower. We are 41st in the world in infant mortality. I could go on, but what's the point? We all know this is the greatest country in the world and that we are not only noble but always right. It is our God-given mandate to spread this righteousness around the world - by force if necessary.
Be of good cheer.
