Ranting About The Wimpiness Of The Republicans In The Senate

You know, I was talking to one of my contacts on the Hill about the post below this one and I was trying to get across to him how disappointed I am in the wimpiness of Republicans in the Senate.

Here are some of the things I was telling him (Grammar corrected),

“Your boss and the rest of the republicans do nothing but get slapped around up there. It’s like watching Mike Tyson fighting a third grader. And Coburn…oh yeah, he can call for Gonzales to resign, but not Harry Reid. Gotta be nice to the Democrats! The Democrats beat them up and take their lunch money every day. The Democrats are doing bare knuckles boxing and the Republicans are playing tiddledywinks — and nobody up (in the Senate) seems to have the guts to step up to the plate.”

My contact (who shall remain nameless) was telling me that the problem was that Republicans do a poor job of messaging. While that’s true, that isn’t the real problem. The real problem is that they don’t have enough testicular fortitude.

Think about this: how many times have you heard somebody say that if a Republican said that, he’d be in real trouble but the Democrat is getting a free pass. Constantly, right? Well, part of that is because the mainstream media is liberal, but part of it is also because when it comes to the Democrats, the Republicans all turn into a bunch of Ken dolls — and I’m not just talking about the hair. When Democrats say and do outrageous things, they almost always get a free pass from every Republican on Capitol Hill. It’s like the GOP is more concerned about hurting Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid’s feelings than they are about winning elections and personally, I’m sick of it.
