Unified Fiend Theory

It is interesting to watch polls and try to make sense of where things stand. I use to have trouble understanding why right wing evangelicals could hold on to their belief that Republicans were good for America. Then I came to the realization that the inability to examine what people tell them in a critical light is what made them right wing evangelicals in the first place.

Even so, the constant drumbeat of hypocrisy seems to be getting to them, even thought the massive drumbeat of exposed Republican corruption did not.

Via Kos:

..the Pew poll also "found that 57 percent of white evangelicals are inclined to vote for Republican congressional candidates in the midterm elections, a 21-point drop in support among this critical part of the GOP base."


...34% say they will be less likely to vote GOP and 9% say they are more likely to vote GOP.


So every sentient being in America must be asking themselves the same question,

"Who are these people?...The 9% who are more likely to vote for the Republicans?"

Are they crazy?...Oh wait...Never mind.

There seems to be one unifying theme with Republicans..."Use my power to get rich."

Denny Hastert not only covers for pedophiles who vote the way he tells them, he uses his leadership position to make the big bucks on his personal land deals.

George Allen is not only a racist...He used his position to get richer.

Senator Bill Frist is not only a right wing stooge, he used his power to reduce his family business's fine for insider trading by over half a Billion dollars...and did a little insider trading himself, by the way, using his power to stuff any investigation that ought to be going on.

And our local boy, Corker? Used his mayoral position to deep six a Chattanooga wetlands conservation easement so he could take a $4 million dollar profit. Not bad, Mr. Corker, but you ain't hit the big time yet. If there's anything I can do to hold you back, just let me know.

Always glad to help.
