9. There is only ONE skeleton, and he is well fleshed out
and living with Drier in his apartment, AND on the payroll to boot!! His name is Brad, and he makes one of the best staffer salaries on the Hill...

How nice that he has the run of the place, and is not confined to the closet alone....

6. Apparently the Repugs found out he was gay.
They didn't want to piss off their base by appointing an outted gay Rep.

7. Blunt is the Whip
Drier is chairmen of the rules committee, so the job by rights is Blunts.

8. He's the guy that tried to sneak something into the Homeland
Security bill for Philip Morris back in 2003. He's Chairman of the Gas Price Task Force (?) He's basically, Tom Delay, Jr.

11. One of 13 most corrupt in congress---
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.

16. Yes, but the most of the "good Christian" people in SW MO
Either don't even know that, or would "forgive" him anything, as he is a professed Christian man :puke:

19. Here are a couple of links re: Blunt and Drier ...
Blunt named one of most corrupt congressmen:

Drier 'outed':

Given the choice between a 'mo and a corrupt politician, guess who the Repugnantcans will pick?
