Translation: Rep Carney is gonna get paid. We don't know by who yet, but it's gonna happen. And no bid contracts in secret are for chumps.

"A source familiar with the call said that Republicans thought Carney might be susceptible to McCain's entreaty because, like the senator, the 50-year-old House member served in the Navy ."


huh?

McCain and the GOP have switched Democrate Chris Carney's regular coffee with Folger's. Let's see if he can tell the difference.

Oh come on. The Navy is just a large frat. Everyone knows they don't do anything important.

It's true. I voted for Mccain because he was in the navy.

That's not true. In the Navy, yes you can sail the seven seas! In the Navy, yes you can put your mind at ease!

Come on people, and make a stand!

In the navy!

Thats nothing compared to whats gonna happen in 2010.

Hows that DLC corporate/conservative dem policy working out.

Lets see the public fires the the conservative republicans.

Then conservative dems take over and the public hates them.

That must mean that the country loves conservatives.

Sure.

I don't give a hsit what his party letter. I care about how he votes.
Did Specter really change how he voted other than having not to respond to Republican pressures to toe party line?

Every time I see the abbreviation "Rep.", I think it's short for Republican. Possibly because I'm stupid.

I think it's short for "reptilian". It makes more sense reading it that way.

Thank you. I never thought of it that way. It definitely arrives in the nick of time on an otherwise mostly brain-dead thread.

Okey-doke, they can have Carney. We have representatives to spare. But in exchange, we get Snow or Collins. Fair's fair.

McSame is a Stain on the United States Congress.


that Turd tried to get away with an "Internet Freedom Act" bill that would PREVENT the Government from PREVENTING companies like AT&T from controlling content on the Internet. i.o.w. from controlling what types of packets can go thru the pipes.

i loved the Orwellian doublespeak.


go fuuukkk yourself, McStain.

FTFA: 'Whatever you do, I know that you'll make the right decision for the country,'"

There's something about that statement that explains a whole lot about the republican party. Almost as much as the whole "new low in partisanship" thing he said about healthcare reform, apparently forgetting the Gang of 6 and how republicans adamantly refused to meet in the middle on anything.

"Come on, you served in the Navy. Stop being a pansy!"

"McCain, I serve my public--"

"Public sucks! Republicans get free hookers and blow and then we get to slap everybody else with the morality stick. It's gold!"

"McCain, get off my phone---"

"I'll be your frieeeeennnndddddd--"

".....Palin's giving you another blowjob, isn't she?"

"Er...."

"Goodbye, McCain."

This is what it is now? An endless game of seeing who they can all get to play presto-chango-new-party-affiliation? If this is what it has come to in terms of seeking numbers for agendas then it's way too incestuous and way too insider-y and it's way past time for term limits on these assholes.

Careerists need to manuever like this. Citizen legislators don't and Founders didn't intend for careerists.

What's with McCain's creepy swing over into Far Right land, anyway? Is he thinking of running again?

I think Griffith's defection may actually backfire on the GOP. If the Blue Dogs stay with the Dems, they're probably safe from a primary from the left, especially in red states. If they switch, they will immediately be targeted by the teabaggers and Club for Growth.

McCain: You want this contract don't you? The hate is swelling in you now. Take your vote. Use it. I am unarmed. Strike me down with it. Give in to your anger. With each passing moment you make yourself more my servant

As a constituent of Carney's, I am happy that Carney has said no. My family's spent a fair amount of time volunteering for him, and if he were to flip, he'd be losing a lot of support among his district. He is a man of character and while I don't agree with him all of the time, he is right on a lot of the issues that matter, and so I think he's worth supporting. But NEPA is rife with corruption in Republican ranks (see McDade, Joe). So he ought to stay clean and avoid associating with the 24/7 obstruction that is the GOP.

Also, he has no serious primary contender, and no serious Republican to run against.
