Time for Bartlett to go (Md. - he hangs out with Moon)

People are known by the company they keep. Congressional hopeful Andrew Duck is one of a noble company of veterans who served his country in Iraq and now wishes to serve in Washington. In addition, he's endorsed by a wide variety of nonpartisan organizations, such as the Maryland State Teachers Association, the AFL-CIO, and several newspapers.

Incumbent Roscoe Bartlett, on the other hand, prefers the company of folks like Sun Myung Moon, Tom DeLay, and others steeped in the far right's culture of corruption. Despite -- or perhaps because of -- a 14-year record in Congress, he is endorsed by only a small circle of wealthy and fiercely partisan special interest groups.

In a year when sensible Republicans are doing all they can to distance themselves from this disastrous administration, we have seen Bartlett's name linked with that of George W. Bush time and again. Announcing his first veto, for example, Bush specifically thanked Bartlett for his negative vote on stem cell research. A week later, Bartlett posed for a photo op in the oval office as the president signed a bill giving us the all-important right to wave a flag.


He's not good for local businesses or their employees. He voted to give federal loans to companies that move offshore to escape paying taxes. Meanwhile, he also voted to deprive millions of American workers of overtime protection.

a friend of Moon is no friend of mine
