Freepers aren't pleased with Dreier
Not anti-immigrant, not a leader, he's a flake from SoCal, and Larry Flynt has a lot on him being gay...They're not happy.

27. Yes, Edy's in the east is the same as Dreyer's in the west.
Same company, same ice-cream.

Same with Best Foods/Hellmann's mayonnaise. It's Best Foods west of the Rockies and Hellmann's East of the Rockies. :). (just think I know this and I don't even eat mayonnaise, I hate that stuff) :)

3. There's a brand called Dreyer's as well. I think it's west coast only.
I remember getting confused when I first moved to Boston because I couldn't find Dreyers but could find Breyers.

I'm sure that what the Freep was referring to :)

15. Here's an interesting quote from there:
"His role is to keep everything under control until Tom comes back. This might be impossible if Conservatives really want to make a play from the fiscal side but as Head of the Rules Committee, Dreier is an expert on inflicting pain on his enemies."

I knew next to nothing about him until now, but I'll start Googling shortly.

22. so are they saying being an expert on inflicting pain is a good thing?
No wonder I don't have it in me to be a freeper. I'm not a sadist.

36. "...until Tom comes back..."
That poster at FR could call themselves "The Ghost of Shirley Booth"

Come back, little Sheeba.

Sheeba! Sheeeeba!

(I refer to the heart-rending play and movie about loss and facing reality.)

29. Neither can I, but his ahem gayness is not the reason
freeps are quite a spectacle, especially since they said they would never dare to indict DeLay, who once quiped, I am the government... well Mr Government enjoy your orange jumpsuit... it fits your complexion,...

25. Now they're saying Roy Blunt
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 02:48 PM by Oreo
What's his story?
http://www.issues2000.org/House/Roy_Blunt.htm

Roy Blunt update

Remember Rep. Roy Blunt (R, Missouri), the House Majority Whip who tried to sneak some legislation favorable to Philip Morris at the last second into the Homeland Security bill? At the time, I didn't know exactly what his relationship with Philip Morris lobbyist Abigail Perlman was, but now I do:


Are recently divorced House Majority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and Philip Morris lobbyist Abigail Perlman headed for the altar? Word around town is that the two lovebirds -- whose romance has been raising eyebrows and giving fits to self-appointed ethics cops -- are planning to announce their engagement soon. Perlman didn't return our phone calls and Philip Morris spokesman Dave Tovar dismissed concerns that the relationship might bend House rules governing personal transactions between members of Congress and lobbyists with legislative business before Congress. "We have a very strict compliance and integrity program. As far as our lobbying is concerned, we are confident that we are in full compliance of all legal and ethical obligations," Tovar said. Meanwhile, Blunt's press secretary, Burson Taylor, told us: "I have a policy of never commenting on Congressman Blunt's personal life."


For the most part, I really don't care who our elected leaders sleep with. It wouldn't bother me if he were carrying on a passionate affair with Rick Santorum's dogwalker. Once they begin to use shady, under-the-table pork barrel legislative favors in place of chocolates and flowers for their inamoratas, however, that's where I draw the line. Roy Blunt needs to have his ethics investigated in a big way. Too bad it'll never happen.

Via Atrios.
