If Republicans Lose Control in November
..it's because they've lost their freaking minds lately.
The FBI raided the house of Democrat Representative William Jefferson (La.) recently, discovering something like $90,000 hidden in his freezer.
With all the nonsense charges leveled at Republicans lately, you'd think Congressional Republicans would jump on this as evidence of the Democrat "culture of corruption." But nooooooo...
Instead, Congressional Republicans, up to and including House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill), are complaining about "separation of powers" and demanding the FBI return the documents found. Excuse me? There's far more evidence of wrongdoing here than there ever was during the DeLay fiasco. Republicans need to be calling for Jefferson's head on a platter and trumpeting his corruption loud and long, just like Democrats did to any number of Republicans. Republican voters are tired of listening to Democrat scandal-mongering, mudslinging and guilt-by-accusation against Republicans while sleazy Democrats involved in the same perfidiousness skate by without a peep from anyone. But when a Democrat hands them an ethics violation gift-wrapped on a silver platter, they act like THEY are the ones who have something to hide.
Demanding to be treated as if they are above the law is no way to win votes this November. By whining and moaning over "separation of powers," they're doing just that.
