I thought the November elections was supposed to send an unmistakable message to all in Congress that “business as usual” was not acceptable. Apperantly, some major players did not get the memo….. They are the following Republicans who backed the treaty;
Sens. Alexander, Cochran, Corker, Lugar, Bob Bennett (Utah), Scott Brown (Mass.), Susan Collins (Maine), Judd Gregg (N.H.), Johnny Isakson (Ga.), Mike Johanns (Neb.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Olympia Snowe (Maine) and George Voinovich (Ohio). Lugar, Corker and Isakson backed the treaty in committee.
These Senators are nothing short of a :Benedict Arnold, Brutus, Judas, Judas Iscariot, Quisling, agitator, apostate, archtraitor, backslider, betrayer, bolter, brawler, cockatrice, collaborationist, collaborator, conniver, conspirator, conspirer, convert, convict, criminal, crook, deceiver, defector, deserter, desperado, desperate criminal, double-crosser, double-dealer, double agent, extremist, felon, fifth columnist, frondeur, fugitive, gallows bird, gangster, gaolbird, informer, insubordinate, insurgent, insurrectionary, insurrectionist, insurrecto, intrigant, intriguer, jailbird, lawbreaker, machinator, malcontent, maverick, mobster, mugwump, mutineer, nonconformist, outlaw, plotter, proselyte, public enemy, quisling, racketeer, rat, rebel, recidivist, recreant, renegade, renegado, renegate, reversionist, revolter, revolutionary, revolutionist, rioter, runagate, schemer, schismatic, scofflaw, scoundrel, seceder, secessionist, separatist, serpent, snake, strikebreaker, subversive, swindler, tergiversant, tergiversator, thief, thug, timeserver, treasonist, trimmer, turnabout, turncoat, turntail, two-timer or “Traitor” by any definition.
These people must be primaried in 2012. If any of these Senators are yours, call them, write them, e-mail them, burn the phone lines down and tell them how upset you are with them. They need to know how bad they just screwed up.
