The Stupid Party Changes It’s Name To The Weasel Party

30 September 2010 @ 09:59

Last week I reported that the Senate Republicans voted not to take away Lisa Murkowski’s leadership position on the Energy And Natural Resources Committee despite the fact that she had bolted the Party after losing the Primary and was running as a write-in candidate.  This news was made public by Senator Jim DeMint, who was not happy with his colleagues [and rightfully so].

How did the Senators vote is the remaining question and National Review has been trying to find out.  In a posting yesterday at The Corner, Rich Lowry presented the findings of Robert Costa and others on the NRO Staff who spoke with the Senators or their staffs [tip of the fedora to Stacy McCain].  As you probably will not be surprised to learn, the responses published are pretty much weasely, or, if I were in a kinder mood, aristocratic.  A sample:

Sen. Roger Wicker

He’s up in 2012 in very, very red Mississippi. He says: “I don’t view it as big of an issue as some people do. We made clear that we would support Mr. Miller once he won the nomination.”

He continues, “I assume [the conference’s decision] was viewed as not pouring salt in the wound of someone who has served here for six or eight years.”

Then, he scolds anyone interested in the matter: “I’m comfortable with it, because I don’t view it as a significant issue. . . . Frankly, the pundits would be better served to focus on issues of importance to the American people.”

Oh!  Pardon us, your employers, for daring to want to know how you voted!  Obviously, we are not worthy enough to be granted the privilege of knowing whether or not you, our employees, did the honorable thing.  Tearful apologies for not knowing our place Wicker Man.

Sen. Bob Corker

“I’ve already weighed in on that privately,” Corker tells us. “I don’t know why I should weigh in publicly. I have already weighed in with her and with the leadership.”

He adds: “I have had a position and I voiced that opinion, OK. But no action ended up being taken, so why would I want to create an issue? I have weighed in already . . . Let me put it this way: I am co-chairing (Joe Miller’s fundraiser) tomorrow and I’m glad to be there.”

Ah, perhaps you should weigh-in on it publically because you’re responsible to us and we want to know?  Perhaps you don’t think that way, Your Bloody Highness?  Perhaps you’re just joshing with us?  Yeah, that’s it — you’re a real corker.

Sen. Lindsey Graham

Graham tells us that he is “OK” with Murkowski keeping her ranking status. “I want to look forward, not backward,” he says. “She got elected to serve out six years . . . If we start doing stuff like this (removing her position as ranking member) we are going to get off track. It’s about the future and not the past and the future is Mr. Miller. I expect him to come here and be a valuable team player the moment he gets here . . . We want to stay focused on them, not us.”

So, it would seem that two-hundred years of tradition [‘the past’] are not very important to you.  You’re just a modern guy [of course, you’ve had it in the ear before; gotta a lust for life, eh?].  It’s all relative to you, Lindy.  No point in railing about your ceaseless treacheries ’cause that would be going ‘off track’…right?  No point in bringing up what a slimy ferret-faced looking weasel you are.

[I won’t even comment on the whole ‘I want to look forward, not backward’ thing — that would be just too easy.]

Actually, I think Stacy McCain may have said it better than I in just two words:

Worthless bastard.

The GOP Senators say we are ambitious and the Senators are all honorable men.

    In 2012, Grahmnesty aint getting re-elected. We folks in SC are getting sick and tired of his shenanigans. And about that picture of Graham…He kinda looks like the Gerber baby, except with hair, watching out of the corner of his eye as Momma prepares to give him some castor oil.
