Cry Me a River, Ya Bastards

Representative Roy Blunt (R-Misery) protests heavy-handed Democratic tactics

When did the he-men of the GOP become such bitch-ass, whiny babies?
House Republicans are fuming over Democrats' decision to hold the next vote on the State Children's Health Insurance Program on Thursday -- when many Republicans will be in California as President Bush tours areas hit by wildfires.

"Five to seven members are going, all of whom would be 'no' votes, and [Democrats] know it," House Republican Whip Roy Blunt told CNN. "This is clearly designed to minimize the Republican opposition to this bill.
Yet, once again, it seems that leading GOPers are...umm...lying.

But Democratic House aides defended the scheduling of Thursday's vote. Stacey Bernards, spokesperson for House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, told CNN Democrats are affected by the fires too.

"The fires aren't partisan," she said. "We are very concerned for the victims of the fires but tomorrow's vote outcome will not be affected by Republicans and Democrats who will not be there."

What, Democrats in California? Shut up! Okay, to be completely fair, it is possible that a few members of the Republic Party™ may have had their toes stepped on since being trounced upon in November '06. I wonder where the Democrats might have learned such unfair tactics? Hmmm. Sucks the be marginalized, eh?

...there ain't no more...
