At last month's Republican Party breakfast, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss emphasized that he "has nothing in common with Ted Kennedy." Chambliss had been singed earlier in the week by being photographed in the same frame as Chappaquiddick Ted celebrating their illegal alien amnesty bill, and he was feeling the heat.
There was a sea of hands of eager questioners agitated about the "amnesty bill," the emotional topic of the month, and not enough time to get around to this writer's question: "Senator you voted for the largest social program in 40 years in Medicare D, for No Child Left Behind, for doubling of the national debt with breathtaking speed, and for ignoring the greatest era of government fraud in U.S. history. By what figment of your imagination are you either conservative or a Republican?"
The only time that Jesus exhibited anger was when he chased the money-changers from the temple. It is time for us to chase the liars, imposters and thieves from our high places. A good place to start is with Saxby Chambliss.
He has a lot more in common with Kennedy than he does with us.
Give 'Sham'bliss the boot in 2008!
