This Designated Conservative is tired from holding the keys of so many Washington D.C. Kool Aid-enebriated Republicans in the U.S. Congress, especially the U.S. Senate. I’m exhausted from fending off senato(R)s and (R)epresentatives who drank too much of the Pelosi/Obama spiked Kool Aid and still want to drive the policy bus.
In fact, my pockets were so full that I have to admit relief when My Beloved Friend and Highly Esteemed Colleague The Honorable Senior Senator from the Great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Arlen Specter came to me last week and said that he was leaving the party. I gave him his keys after he promised that he was just going to walk across the hall to go home. The Honorable Senator Specter has been such a high maintenance partier (always making a scene and wanting things his way) that I’m hoping that he doesn’t come back!
After the disastrous 2006 Republican majority and mortifying 2008 Democrat majority, I propose a new voting scheme for 2010:
VOTE THEM ALL OUT!
All of them, every single member of the current U.S. Congress. All 535 of them.
- If your current congressman is a Democrat, vote for the Republican challenger.
- If your current representative or senator is a Republican, go for the Democrat.
I know that this may result in the loss of a few good men and women in Congress; consider them to be patriotic victims of friendly fire…. …and as for all of you Ron Paul Republicans and Libertarians, I will add this sweetener:
- If your current congressman has no major party challenger, vote for the third party candidate whose name appears first on the ballot.
If we all, that is the qualified and registered actual voting citizens of the United States of America, choose to follow this method, the result will be an unqualified “throw the bums out” anti-incumbent sweep of the detritus that is the current U.S. Congress.
A worthy goal to be sure.
I know that some folks may not be pleased with the results, but it will be worth the pain for the good of the country. Besides, I have no doubt that the good folks in the deeply red states like Utah can put up with Democrat representatives for a couple of years, and we in Michigan definitely need a rest from our majority Democrat congressional delegation!
