Rep. Price Calls For ‘Red State Representation’ In House Leadership

Source: TPM



PEMA LEVY 2:01 PM EST, WEDNESDAY JANUARY 2, 2013

Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) called for "red state representation" in House leadership on Wednesday, a day before House Republicans will select the majority's leadership for the 113th Congress, during an interview on Washington, D.C. talk radio station WMAL.

"I think we need red state representation in both our leadership as well as the organizing committees that we have," Price said.

Price was responding to a question from "Morning on the Mall" host Larry O'Connor about whether he would be willing to seek the role of speaker if Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) is not re-elected to the position.

1. They want some communist leadership?

Isn't that what a "Red State" is? Or am I just channeling some McCarthyisms?

Or snark? I think it's snark.

3. My first thoughts as well...

Let's hear THAT broadcast on all the LimpStream Media channels!

Oh ya, never happen...and, I'll bet that this phraseology gets dropped real fast.

7. Red staters need a True Conservative Party.

The GOP will always sell you out. Now is the time for a Real Tea Party Party.

Go Third Party!

9. No, thanks. I'm in GA and we have a motley crew of idiots in Congress

down here. They hate everybody who isn't an old white male rich person.
The Republicans down here are a special breed of ignorant. I don't want them anywhere near leadership - of anything!
