1. Just great.
Another feather in the cap for all Missourians.
We do actually have some decent politicians. Really, we do.

6. Blunt is ten pounds in a five pound bag
And Matt is, at best, a half-pint milk container straining under the same smelly load.

Thomas Hart Benton? Harry Truman? Clarence Cannon? Fare thee well, gentlemen. Horseman, pass by.

3. Blunt is NOT one of those "decent" ones
He is my "Rep" from one of the most Conservative/Fundie places in the USA. Since Assembly of God moved their HQ here, no Dem can get elected garbage collector---no matter how Jebus-like they may be.
What underhanded crap he didn't know before, he has been learning at DeLay's knee. His son is the Governor of MO, and the nepotism runs deep in the state.

5. No, "Governor" Blunt is the Rep's son.
But you're right about the rest.

7. On the behalf of all Missourians, I must apologize, again
We really, really do have some fine and wonderful people in this state. But sadly, under this corrupt administration, all of our shit seems to be floating to the top. Please, please don't judge us all by the likes of our worst reps, Ashcroft, Blunt and Bond.

10. Oh Joy, Oh Rapture
Well, it's another proud day to be a Missourian.

Jesus, the R's never quit. They just replace one corrupt asshole with another. Well, I'll try to be an optimist. Maybe Blunt will be indicted for something too. And as long as I have the rose colored glasses on maybe his dumb ass son will be chased down the street by former Medicaid patients carrying pitchforks and torches.

15. Is Blunt to share with Dreier in leadership?
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 03:39 PM by Joyce78
I thought that's what CNN reported a little time ago. Has Hastert now determined that Blunt has temporary majority leadership? Where is Blair's son in this mess ... do Dreier and Blunt share him?
Edit
Isn't Tony Blair's son working for (or under, who knows) David Dreier R-CA?
