    Seems a little high.

    Unfortunately for Holbert, this is factually not true. In all recent polling, Democrats have lead Republicans in popularity, which is not really very surprising given the damage that Republicans are doing by their obstruction. In the latest Rasmussen poll of who you’d vote for in a generic race, it’s D: 43%, R: 38%. Taking a generic “do you approve of congress” poll and pretending that it applies equally to both parties as Holbert does is dishonest.

    I knew we’d agree on something eventually!

    I’m not exactly sure how to go through the mental contortions necessary to equate a poll about Congressional approval to a poll about voting preference and use the voting preference poll to declare the Congressional approval poll :factually not true" and “dishonest”.

    It’s the “He may be a crook, but he’s our crook” attitude. If everybody has that attitude what do you get? Nothing but crooks in congress.

    It’s amazing that people can’t realize that Democrats are the root of all the evil in this country. If only every seat in Congress and the President were Republican, there would be no waste, no fraud, no free stuff. The budget would be balanced. Everyone would have a great education, a great job, and we could smash every army in every country, just because we’re Americans.

    I’m convinced. I will no longer vote according to what people do. I will only listen to what they say, and I will always vote Republican. I only ask for forgiveness for being so wrong in the past, but I have seen the error of my ways.

    I’m HEALED.

    I thought it was twelve. At least the Republicans have low ratings for saying what needs t be said but what people don’t want to here.

    “Is anyone actually saying that, or when someone confronts any Democrat’s stupidity, you infer that?”

    Read some of the posts here. It’s not a question about the head of some committee, or a person in a particular cabinet post. It’s Democrats, Dim-Libs, Demoncrats, and on and on.

    I am willing to say that there are some valuable, worthwhile Republicans. I have yet to see any Republicans say one good thing about one democrat.

    Also…..just wanted to see if anyone was paying attention.

    Thanks, we needed the humor here. George Carlin was one of my heroes, as he stuck pins (actually, more like verbal daggers!) in the pretensions of all sides of the extremists political spectrum, may he RIP!!!

    I posted this under another cartoon, so please skip over it if you’ve seen it already.
    This article was published a few weeks ago by Samuel Goldmand, a conservative who also blogs for “The American Conservative”. The subtitle is, “The party cannot chart a course to future victory until it makes peace with past failures”
    Here is a quote from the article that pretty much sums up what I think is wrong with the GOP: “It’s not good enough for Republicans to pledge that things will be different next time. To convince Americans that they’re serious, reformers need to name names about the cause of the public’s justifiable mistrust.”
    Dick Cheney is one of those names. I highly recommend reading the full article.
