Congressional Dems Purge Relative Moderates
Don't expect Congress to put any brakes on Obama's immature radicalism. Currently the party is conducting Stalinesque purges to rid itself of any trace of moderation. Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman and Michigan Rep. John Dingell are moonbats by any reasonable definition, yet they have failed to drink the last drop of Kool-Aid: Lieberman by wanting to defeat Islamic terrorists, Dingell by hesitating to sacrifice the auto industry for the dubious benefit of polar bears. Their punishment is intended to strike fear in moderates.
Last week, Majority Leader Harry Reid informed the Connecticut renegade that rank-and-file sentiment against him had climbed to a point where he could not stay as Homeland Security Chairman. He may also be booted from the Democratic caucus.
As you'll recall, Lieberman was the Dems' VP candidate only 8 years ago. Yet he was forced to run as an Independent in 2006, after his fellow liberals blackballed him for wanting to win the war in Iraq that so many of them had voted for. Nonetheless he has voted with Democrats, even though he had the chance to tip the balance of power away from them. But then he campaigned for the centrist McCain against the radical leftist Obama. He will not be forgiven.
Dingleberry is a New Deal Democrat who's been in Congress since 1955. He chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Beverly Hills moonbat Henry Waxman — the guy who helped Code Pink funnel money to the terrorists killing our troops in Fallujah — is mounting a challenged backed by Nancy Pelosi. Like Pelousy, Waxman is an unhinged fanatic on the topic of global warming, which he wants to use as a pretext to hamstring American industry. Energy policy written by maniacs like Waxman could very easily plunge the country into a depression.
Never one to place sanity before progressive ideology, Obama agrees that clean air laws should be used to suppress activities that produce harmless CO2. This covers all human activities.
We are in for a very rough ride. The only good news is that the media's inevitable attempts to blame Bush for the coming train wreck will render it a complete farce, to be taken no more seriously than Russians took Pravda in the Soviet Union.

Oh my... I pride myself on trying to look inside a person rather than getting hung up on appearance, but this guy was at the end of the line on both points! I think I'll go give thanks that he wasn't part of my gene pool! Thank you Lord!

The Democratic leadership is drunk with power. If you dont tow the line - its off with your head.
In 2000, with the Republicans, something different happened. It rested on its laurels and found itself quickly infested with RINO's. Including, at least in respect to domestic policy, President Bush himself who acted more like a big spending Democrat with useless programs like No Child Left Behind, drugs for the elderly (like they werent pumped up with too many drugs to begin with) and variety of other programs while he worked alongside guys like Ted Kennedy. The only good things Bush did was cut taxes and keep America from being blown up by Islamofascists.

Yikes! And I thought Beverly Hills is where all the beautiful people are. My mistake.

What was one of our trolls just saying about people unable to tolerate differences of opinion?

Beverage warning next time, please.

Is there such a thing as too good-looking?

EXCELLENT, this is just what the right has been hoping for! The contrast of these RADICALS will be evident to even the most thick headed of Americans. America will be so sick of these creeps by next election (If Barry makes it to the next election) they will beg the Republicans to take back the Presidency and congress. With no money or freedom Americans will throw the REDS out on their ass.

Since it looks like you don't even have to be a citizen of this country, and you don't have to love America, the Dems plan on skipping the middle man next time and selling the presidency directly to a Muslim terrorist group or the Chinese. There won't be an election in 2012--just another auction.

Would it not be ironic if by, say, the first year of Chairman O's occupation that the dems pass an amendment so that non-citizens can run for the presidency. And, ironies of ironies, say, we later find out that he was in fact a Kenyan, born and raised. Huh? Sounds far fetched but plausible.

I hope he refused to pay for that nose job.

I had no idea Waxman was that famous:

Waxman is ugly to the 10th power. And if anyone has caught him interrogating people in the show trials (House Committee hearings), he manages to convey all the warmth of Felix Dzerzinsky. Waxman = ugly man with too much power.

Well, it was Joe's own fault. I mean, where does he get off acting like he can express his own opinion in this country? It's not like it's a right clearly spelled out in the Constitution or anything.

Shana you have provided further support for this post. Even Obama has acknowledged Reid's (and others) desire to boot Lieberman. Next.

Get ready for more Whack-man, all the time. Under Obama, he will be holding hearings (Impeach Bush [even though he's gone]; Jail Cheney [even though he's gone]; cashier Petraeus [he actually planned for victory in the War on Terror! Burn him at the stake, or send him to Leavenworth for 50 years!]) 24/7/365. And of course the ObamaMedia will give him a platform -- "All Whack-man, All The Time".
Meantime, we have to get rid of Rush, Sean and Mark -- such "hate-filled" speech! All Air-head America and NPR, all the time -- I mean, this IS America, where we have no freedom of speech (not anymore) . . .
