DCCC Head Rep. Steve Israel: 10% of House Republicans are capable of compromise (Audio)

Rep. Steve Israel, head of the DCCC told Stephanie Miller audience that only 23 House Republicans are even capable of compromise. The other 90% are in "safe" districts that have been gerrymandered and redrawn like Tetris blocks. They respond only to well-heeled Koch primary challenges to kick them out and replace them with even bigger nuts and extremists. Sad but true. He puts if very well:

Are you kidding me? This dude wud get rid of filibuster faster than Salinas could fill his terrarium

This dude would get rid of the filibuster faster than Salinas could fill his terrarium with $36,000,000 worth of iceberg lettuce:

If you were to put the dregs of conservative Internet comment sections into a pot, boil them down to their essence, then run the resulting product through a sieve to get it to its rawest, most pure form of vitriol, it would probably look something like E.W. Jackson’s Twitter feed.

Through much of President Obama’s first term, Jackson, who was nominated this past weekend as the Republican nominee for Virginia Lieutenant Governor, used his Twitter feed to attack gays, Muslims, Obama, and even Michael Jackson.

After reading through each of his 662 tweets, here are Jackson’s 20 most vitriolic tweets (in no particular order):

Sometimes I go with my trainer, Blake, who is super nice. We do the intermediate stuff mostly. I'm 61 but look younger, maybe, and Blake is 27. I have a spare 2009 Specialized Stumpjumper Comp FSR (full suspension) bike you can ride that is really sweet.

Anyone want to do Europe?

I'm just afraid of Montezuma's revenge and, of course, the whole world hates America right now

Don't know if I need a tour company like Rick Steves, a cruise like the Rhine Cruises, or what. Got any ideas?
