The Definition of Insanity? Take A Peek…

This cracks me up.  It's one of the latest ads from the Lamont campaign, regarding Turncoat Joe's consistent rubber stamping of so many Bush Administration positions that are simply wrong for Connecticut and wrong for the working people of America.  On health care, Iraq…you name it…Turncoat Joe has been the Bush Administration's go to guy for faux "bi-partisan" political cover

I love the fact that the Lamont campaign is calling him on it.  I just wish the DSCC and the muckety mucks in the Democratic party would do the same — respecting the will of the voters and the party faithful is important (and don't think we won't be reminding you of that fact every chance we get for all eternity).  

But most of all, I love that the ad has the "Joenertia — Party of One Big Ego" attitude down to a tee, complete with that #2 license plate that we all got to see so well when he flouted the law and any sense of decency, and parked his car in a handicapped spot so he wouldn't have to walk so far to a political pit stop.  Classy.

A vote for a George Bush supporter — be it a Republican or a de facto Republican like Turncoat Joe — is a vote for more of the same:  more of the same corruption in Washington, more of the continued lack of oversight and accountability, more of the profligate spending and rampant cronyism.  The way things are going in this nation and the messy chaos that is Iraq, why in the world would any sane person cast their vote for "stay the course"? 

Had enough?  Vote for Democrats.  This nation of ours simply cannot afford any more rubber stamps.  The time for accountability is now.
