I’m beginning to worry about LC & IB Rick. It looks like the Moonbats infesting his comments are beginning to get to him, which is a real shame.

Now he’s worried about kicking out the White Flag RINOs in ‘08, the seditious, spineless windbags who couldn’t wait to jump ship and join Murtha’s “slow bleed.”

Why? Well, there seems to be roughly two arguments in there:

But why waste resources on recruiting candidates to run against Republican incumbents? I notice several House members from the “Gang of 17” who are in vulnerable districts where they received 55% of the vote or less in ‘06. Defeating an incumbent in a bruising primary in these districts would make the prospects for a general election victory less than certain and may even guarantee a Democratic pick up.

If your only concern is how many “R”s you can muster in the next Congress, then I guess you have a point there. But, as the White Flag 17 have already demonstrated, that’s not going to make a lick of difference when they vote straight Democrat party line. No, having a majority isn’t worth the slightest little bit when a goodly part of your “majority” will jump ship at the drop of a hat and vote with the opposition. It’s basic politics. Numbers only count after the “yeas” and “nays” have been tallied.

Aside from all of the political calculations, there is the question of conscience and how much a representative should be penalized for following the dictates of his inner voice. We constantly complain about spineless politicians. And then when a couple of them stand up for what they truly believe, our first move is to rev up a primary opponent for him? Either we trust the judgement and heartfelt beliefs of our politicians or we encourage them to be as calculating in their votes as we hypocritically criticize them for.

Really, with all due respect, that has to be the worst load of hogwash I’ve read in a long time, and most certainly well below the standards that I’ve come to expect from you, Rick.

“Vote their conscience?”

I guess their “consciences” didn’t show up for work until after the results of Election ‘06 were in, huh? Or were they “voting against their consciences” prior to ‘06, perhaps? They were for it before their conscience showed up on their doorstep with an overnight bag, asking them if it could sleep on the couch, and then they were against it?

It couldn’t, of course, have anything to do with the fact that they’re being the exact kind of opportunistic, spineless, poll-driven, corrupt, incumbent parasites that you’re claiming most piously that they’re not, right?

Not that it matters at the end of the day. I don’t know about you, Rick, but I don’t vote according to whether the candidate “votes his conscience” or not, I’m a little bit too hung up on what it is that he’s actually voting about, but maybe I’m just being a heartless, unappreciative bastard here. I’m quite sure that you could find some socialist moron who would consistently vote, according to his sacred conscience of course, in favor of increasing taxes to 80%, abolishing elections altogether and establishing concentration camps for anti-social elements.

That doesn’t mean that I’d vote for the bastard, however, conscience or not.

They made their bed, now let them lie in it. If that means that their pure consciences and altruistic motives will have to wave bye-bye to their seats and their lucrative bribes, then so be it. I’ll pretend that I give a shit.

    First again, bizneeyatches!!!

    I’m not voting for any candidate who doesn’t explicitly promise to obliterate at least one Muslim shithole in each term.

    So we’re just supposed to suck it up and stick with any piece of shit with an R after their name?
    That makes no sense and isn’t worth further comment.
    The rest is foolishness at best!

    Its the same the world over, we have a core group of about 7 fucktards in Howards Liberal party over here who “follow their hearts” every time a vital piece of legislation comes up. Managed to get one de-selected but the other 6 are sticking like shit to a blanket. Their electorate confuses “moral backbone” with “publicity seeking media whores”.

    How vulnerable are incumbent members in the American electoral system? They must be hard to unseat, nothing else could explain windbag Kennedy still being elected?

    I know I’m going to regret asking this because I should know, but what does ‘LC & IB’ mean? I think ‘LC’ is ‘Loyal Citizen’ but not sure.

    (How does one become a Loyal Citizen anyway? Presumably the Empire has better immigration control than the US.)

    :lol_wp:

    Actually, no. All you have to do is to decide that you are one, although occasionally somebody will suggest it to you before you decide for yourself.

    “IB” stands for Imperial Blogger, which means that you’re a blogger who has somehow managed to convince/bribe me or the Imperial Staff to include your site on the blogroll. (If you’ve asked but haven’t gotten there, it’s more likely because His Imperial Senility missed your request than anything else, by the way).

    The whole process is hideously arbitrary and indisputably unfair but, then again, this IS an Empire.

    How vulnerable are incumbent members in the American electoral system?

    Not very much, especially since they have the opportunity to pass crap like McCain-Feingold that only makes them even more entrenched. “Campaign finance reform” is code for “incumbent protection.”

    They must be hard to unseat, nothing else could explain windbag Kennedy still being elected?

    Exactly. In addition, you need to consider who keeps electing that scumbag…there’s a reason they’re called Massholes. :tongue2_tb:

    You might want to make sure that the Press Room floor has tile, linoleum or plastic covering it, President BisW.

    Not the walls, or ceiling? I take it Lyudmila will not be tasked with varmint removal. For this application, I’d suggest a baseball bat. But you’ll still have to cover the rest of the room.
