The Democrats don’t get on their soap box and claim the high religious ground that the Republicans always do, like “Family Values ” comes to mind, thats one of the major differences between the two parties. You may not agree, but that’s how I see it.

This was a long time in coming, goodbye “hush money” Senator John Ensign (R-NV), don’t let the door hit you. The party of “Family Values” my ass, more like the “Party of hypocrites”. Poor Christopher Lee, at least he resigned! What about the “diaper boy” and big mouth Senator David Vitter (R-LA)! Too Funny!

Make room for more of the Arrogance, Race-baiting, Crazy talking Sharron Angle, who else can Nevada elect?
