Q: FDR, JFK & Eric Cantor? A: They All “Get It”

Republican Congressman Eric Cantor (R-Va), the Chief Deputy Whip gets it; he understands that the need to stand up for liberty and freedom in our world. Congressman Cantor’s office has put out a fantastic video containing a few Republican floor arguments spliced between key snippets of important speeches by Democratic heroes Franklin Delano Roosevelt and John Fitzgerald Kennedy. The Gateway Pundit has the video and has upped the ante by throwing a fantastic Winston Churchill quote on the fire. The Gateway guy has also properly described today’s Democrats as Copperheads, a group of northern civil war Democrats who wanted to trade slavery for “peace”, as if that trade would have settled the struggle against slavery. Cantor’s video screams out for the use of what was used as a pejorative against their opponents by the Clinton camp during the 1992 campaign, “they don’t get it.” The Clinton people never did “get it” and it looks like they may leave this earth before figuring “it” out. The Ivies should be in tears.

Mr. Rider, your boy Mark Kirk voted in favor of the Surrender Motion, along with 16 other GOPer's, Judas, Benedict Arnold and Quisling. Sincerly, Mrs. Sandberg's Strap-on.

Dear Mrs. Strap-on,
Yes I saw that item yesterday and I still plan to write on that issue. As I am sure that you saw (as you may be familiar with that district) Mark had an incredibly close (for the IL 10th) race last November against an unknown who resides outside of the district. As I recall his opponent was an articulate African-American who resides outside of the 10th District and does not work, so he spent the previous two years campaigning for Mark's seat. Mark is currently attempting to raise enough money to disuade another well financed run for that seat. I must also mention that the people in that district who I know and who voted against Mark had previously voted for him but it was the war and "his voting the right wing agenda of Bush!" The district has gone much more moonbat since we lived there.
