Pot Meet Kettle Part 2

From CNN:

Republican Rep. Christopher Shays defended the House speaker's handling of a congressional page scandal, saying no one died like during the 1969 Chappaquiddick incident involving Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy.
Can everyone say "Lewinsky"? How about "Iraq"? I thought so.

If you have to go back 40 years to make your point, you're not making your point.

The part that is scary is that they don't seem to realize that if they said "it was handled poorly", they'd look a lot better.

Then again, they'd look a lot better to people who are inclined to dislike them (i.e. ME), not necessarily to their core constitutency.

Did you catch what Tucker Carlson (aka BowTie) had to say about the GOP pandering/condescending to the evangelicals?

Well there's a dude in the Northeast (Mass, maybe?) who put out a commercial apologizing for how the the Repub's handled the situation, and now he's getting pummeled in his originally safe district. Oops!

No, I missed BowTie, what did have to say for his douchey self?

Here's some coverage of the Tucker Carlson thing. And, related, "David Kuo, who was the number two guy at the Office of Faith Based initiatives in the White House writes a scathing account of how the administration used Christians to grab and maintain power."

Oh - and check this out for a thorough debunking of the myths surrounding PageGate

Heh. I thought I was the only one who responded to any Chappaquiddick quip by complete withdrawal from the conversation. I mean, if that's all you can come up with...?

Still trying to catch up with this U.S. politics thing, but I have to say, I see connections between all of this and your romance novel controversy.
