This latest crap about Meg Whitman having a maid who is an illegal alien, and the recent crap about Christine O’Donnell being a witch, blah blah blah got me to thinking that the Republicans/conservatives might be growing up. We might actually be learning from our mistakes. I am heartened.
No, I am not heartened by the fact that our candidates are not perfect. I wish they were. Really. But they ain’t. Ain’t possible even. Given the option between the perfect conservative candidate and the flawed conservative candidate, I’d take the perfect one every time. Most conservatives would. And you know what? Liberals know that about us. What we perceive as a strength, liberals rightfully saw as a weakness. Let’s face it, folks. We. Eat. Our. Own.
Remember back when Bubba was on the hot seat for perjury, abuse of power, obstruction of justice? And poor Henry Hyde was exposed as having a mistress. Chomp! CHOMP! CHOMP! Henry Hyde was “mmmm, mmmmmm, good!” Never mind that what he did was not morally equivalent to what Bubba did. We conservatives expected perfection. So he resigned.
But wait, but wait! John, don’t you remember that Zoe Baird chick? And what’s her name after her and the whole “Nannygate thing after wards? Not one but two of Bill Clinton’s nominees for Attorney General withdrew their names for nominee after it was determined that they had hired illegal aliens. Isn’t that the same thing? Shouldn’t Meg Whitman withdraw from the race in California? Wouldn’t that be the proper thing to do?
In a word, no. In two words, fuck no. Democrats care about breaking laws? Puhleeeeeze. Why should we? Sure, I know, we are better than they are. But we aren’t strong enough to knock off our would-be leaders for the Democrats. The Democrats aren’t so stupid. Bill Clinton committed rape sexual assault abuse of power obstruction of justice perjury “lied about sex”? No biggie. Remember “nobody gets prosecuted for perjury? Tell that to Scooter Libby and now Roger Clemens. Ted Kennedy killed a young woman, Joe Biden plagiarized speeches, Barney Frank ran a gay bordello out of his basement, and more recently, Timothy Geithner cheated on his taxes? How did Democrats handle it? No big deal. When Democrats lie, cheat or steal, it is a resume enhancement.
Are we like that? No. But we have to use some discretion. We are better than them. But we’ll shoot our generals when and if we feel like it, not when and if the liberals expose some particular flaw that shows that they are human, but which does not disqualify them from the race.
Instead of playing the liberals game of shooting our own generals, we are going to (hopefully) act like adults. Is a squishy conservative Meg Whitman, who may have hired an illegal alien as a maid (about 1/3 of Californians are illegal aliens, ain’t they?) better than a loony leftist Jerry Brown for Governor of California? That’s the question that ADULTS will have to answer when they go into the voting booth in California in November.
As a good friend was fond of saying, “Hope dis halps!”
Does this former “witch” think schools of higher education don’t keep records of those that [don’t] attend…?
Ms Whitman spends more than 150 million dollars and is still losing…!
Stupid is as stupid does…Hehehe!
As a multi-multi-multimillionaire, one would think Ms Whitman could have afforded to pay a legal resident the minimum wage.
Ohh…that may not be fair on my part…if you could find someone illegal to work for less?
Than again…perhaps she couldn’t find any legal resident, not on welfare, that would work for minimum wage in “Calleeforneeah”…?
Beejeebuss…Ms Angle, I’d say it’s time to start firing and then do some new hiring…!
BTW: Sharron, have you checked if yer spokeswoman is legal…?
I’m John Doe and I approve of Sharon Angle’s message. I think the liberals are just squawking loudly because it skewers Harry Reid for the dumb fuck he is. I’d vote for a baboon over him. At least the baboon might vote correctly on occasion in a random sort of way. Reid, on the other hand, is ALWAYS on the wrong side of every issue.
From watching the interview with the maid, it almost seems like the thing she is pissed about is that Whitman didn’t fire her in 2003 when she was made ‘aware’, which I am sure is a crock by the way.
If anyone is abusing and humiliating this woman it’s Allred, but being a lefty she gets a pass. If she felt so awful in the employ of Meg Whitman, why did she stay there for 9 years? Could it be that Meg was paying her more than almost anyone else would for the same work?
Complete, abject, total, ignorance, is not a flaw…
Ms C O’D isn’t only a cute, ignorant babe, with no visible means of personal support… she is now toast, when it comes to GOP or TP, senatorial material in Delaware…Is it any wonder the RNC, has only thrown $40K into her magical mystery trip …
Who was that miscreant that said, blondes were dumbes…?
There’s nothing in the first amendment pertaining to ” The separation of Church and State”. What the first amendment does say, however, is that Congress shall make no law establishing a Religion. There’s a difference. Coons made the assertion that the first amendment stated there was a separation when there isn’t.
And separation of Church and State as a “philosophy” really came into vogue in the hectic days of the Sixties. I remember as a kid, saying a morning prayer in school every day in the early Sixties.
I guess it depends on which side you’re on, eh Gramps?
There yah go tmg…
My what one can learn about history and government on Smash Mouth…!
