Poll question: Waste of Oxygen: Which GOP Senator is the Worst?
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 05:59 PM by Old Crusoe
This poll asks your opinion on the most egregious case of a waste of oxygen among current-term GOP U.S. Senators.

Only room for 10 slots on the poll, so No. 10 is marked 'Other' for the SEVERAL other deserving nominees. Please -- no Lieberman votes, tempting though it be.

Have at it, people.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. Other - for all of the above
Because all these guys have the same warped mentality.

10. He is a monster, no question. Only 9 slots, so I put --
-- 'Other' so that deserving nominees like Inhofe could be included.

LieberBush should be on the list, as well. :)

You really need to list nearly all of the Republicans, with about six or seven exceptions - those who have integrity - omitted from the roster. LOL!

30. I wish the U.S. Senate could prove you wrong on that, Lori --
-- but I think you're exactly right.

The modern-day GOP is such a pack of venal little monsters. A very high yuck factor.

And THE CAT BUTCHER is as deserving as anyone for "most egregious waste of oxygen."

Thanks for your posts.

Mark Dayton is showing signs of life these days. I don't think he's a Paul Wellstone, but he's better than anyone the GOP has thrown up for the Senator so far up there.

46. I agree! Did you see him on Social Security Panel today on CSPAN?
Awesome! I sent him two emails this week, complimenting him on his positions and presentations on both the Presidential Cabinet nominations, but also today on the Dem. Committee on Social Security.

He seems to have such integrity, and passion. And he 'says it like it is. No minced words with Dayton!

61. Well, GloriaSmith and KitchenWitch --
-- I did put in an 'Other' since there are so MANY cretinous GOP assholes to choose from.

I can't give Norm Coleman special treatment because he's just ONE cretinous GOP asshole.

He's a very BIG cretinous GOP asshole, but he's just one nevertheless.

One tries to be fair...

83. He's a fucking idiot -- doesn't know the meaning of "classical liberalism"
I saw him on Hardball, rejoicing about the "death of classical liberalism," not knowing that "classical liberalism," is mostly known as the liberalism of the founders -- not the liberalism of the left.

So, in effect, he was denouncing everything on which this country was founded. Which, for a GOP mouthpiece, would be the only true thing that ever escapes his lips.

Jeff Sessions is the original waste-of-oxygen in my opinion.

frist has said. I don't want to creep out myself, unecessarily.

My friend said she saw frist on stephanopoulos the other Sunday and he was talking about how the Americans just have to sacrifice(so the top 1% won't have to pay their fair share of taxes) as far as Social Security is concerned. She said he was so cavalier about the whole thing that she was getting queasy!

She's the kind who wrote him a letter and told him what she thought!

'Other' is doing well also.

One difficulty is choosing from so MANY deserving GOP wastes of oxygen. Yet DUers seem to be rising to the occasion.

42. Joe is a lot more Republican than some Democrats.
He's more conservative than the man he replaced -- Lowell Weicker, and more conservative than our platform.

I really think Joe thought he would win the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries last year. But he was buried alive.

Bush may yet appoint him to some post or other, but essentially, Joe's time has come and gone. Gore put Joe in the spotlight for a brief moment, and now the light is off and Joe's just wailing in the dark.

Why would you include Martinez in this poll?

Not that one day he may rank right up there, but he just cast his first votes.

I can think of several more deserving "Distinguished Representatives of the People" who deserve a shot at the "Worst Waste of Oxygen" GOP poll.

Norm Coleman, Linsey Graham, Chuck Hagel, Orrin Hatch, Trent Lott

64. You have many friends at your back on that sentiment, leanin_green.
Santorum is running away with this poll.

He is a much-feared, much-detested presence in the U.S. Senate.

I would LOVE to see him defeated at the polls in 2006. Friends of mine in Philadelphia believe that Robert Casey, Jr. will run against him, and despite his conservative stand on abortion, they believe most Democrats will rally behind Casey to defeat Santorum.

If Santorum loses, I don't think many people on DU will miss him.

And his voting record is abominable.

You're right. He needs to be included as a nominee on this list.

71. Must be their lovechild
I remember Orrin on my TV during the "long dong silver" supreme court hearings of the early 90's. I think Orrin was jealous!

Frist reminds me of the coked-up freak on Sharkys Machine circa 1981

102. Hi, Supersedeas. I have to agree with you -
-- Hatch is shifty. Slipperier than a buttered eel in a lard bucket.

73. Hi, janeaustin. I agree. He DOES get worse and worse --
-- and he was hardly bearable to begin with!

Whatever made him think he could make a viable run for president?

93. Hi, Wabbajack.
Can i ask a question?

Do you know if Langevin is going to challenge Lincoln Chaffee in 2006?

There's talk of it on other blogs, and the early polls suggest that Langevin could unseat him.

I was wondering if you had any updates on this.

If it were left to me, I'd trade Chaffee to Connecticut to replace Lieberman, and elect Langevin in RI.

As for Lieberman -- I think he should be the new Orick vacuum cleaner guy.

97. I don't
have any special information but I heard Langevin is considering it.

I'm disappointed he's anti-choice like Weygland was. I'm thinking that's part of why Chaff won so easily in 2000.

106. Anti-choice? Hmmm. You're right -- that's disappointing.
It would be nice if Democrats were a bit more pro-women.

is the absolute worst piece of shit I've ever come across. He has to go in 2006. It's important.

85. I second your description of lil' Ricky and --
-- offer any encouragement I can to get rid of him in 2006 at the ballot box.

As you can see, he's doing AWFULLY well in this poll.

Without a doubt, those three are true qualifiers for the waste-of-oxygen criterion.

82. I'm "Cats Against Frist," but I voted for Santorum
That man gives new meaning to the term "sentimental bullshit." I've never seen anything as disgusting as his thinly veiled bigotry masquerading as sentimentality, "ooohhhhh my goddddd if butttt sexxx iss leggggall whaaaat abbbouuut theee chiiiildren, whaaaat abouuuuut the fammmilies."

And then, of course, he's a dishonest liar.

He is numero uno most pathetic, hands down.

88. You make a strong case and the choir is definitely with you.
He is an underhanded slime, no question.

I don't think it's an accident that he's running away with this poll, either.

Thanks for your post, Cats Against Frist.

Jim Demint of South Carolina should be on the list, and so should Inhofe also from Oklahoma.

89. Hi, iwmcb. Inhofe is getting such distinct notice by DUers --
-- on this poll that I might have to cook up another post just for him.

I agree with you -- he certainly is deserving of mention on any "Waste of Oxygen" list.

90. I didn't vote for the Repuke Senator
who I hated the most -- which is my Senator, Rick Santorum -- I voted for the waste of oxygen Senator, which to me means the one that just stands up there on the Senate Floor and blabs the Repuke talking points. The rubber-stampers that got in through cheating. I voted for John Cornyn. Norm Coleman is even more of a waste of good oxygen.

As of today, Saturday, January 29, 2005, my opinion is that ALL republicans are evil and want evil for the people of this country.

94. I think we here in the Choir are with you on that.
I am hopeful that in the midterm elections we will pick up a couple seats, maybe three.

There is even a chance of unseating Rick Santorum, although it won't be easy.

100. A video of Frist speaking would simply be appallingly --
-- inhumane. We have to show SOME restraint.

-- : ) --

Is Frist dull? My god yes, he is. If this were a movie, I'd cast him as the funeral director.

I should probably have offered complimentary TUMS with this post. : )

104. Hi, JNelson. I'm picking up some VERY strong -
- anti-Coleman sentiment on DU.

I hope it translates to his being turned out by Minnesota voters next time.

I'm no fan of Norm myself, and as I posted above, I'm sick of seeing his usurping puss in Paul Wellstone's rightful Senate seat.

I'm serious -- it would be a good fundraising product for the 2006 mid-term elections.

Hell, I'd buy one.

I'm so mad that PA has him for a Senator. But Frist is just as bad, and has more power.

Coburn has a lot of potential to be worst.
