The Republicans NOT on Bush's Christmas List

Four Republican Senators said they couldn't vote for higher Bush budget deficits this past week and came in for severe involuntary modeling for Right Wing voodoo dolls. They are John McCain of Arizona, Olympia J. Snowe and Susan Collins, both of Maine, and Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island. McCain in particular this past week got routinely trashed by name and in public by Republican House Speaker Dennis Hastert and House Majority Leader Tom "Cockroach" DeLay.

Please remember that the two women senators from Maine also refused to vote for Bill Clinton's conviction on the impeachment charges brought by the House, back when all that was going on. So Olmypia and Susan are definitely now on Jerry Falwell's prayer/hit list, you bet!

But "Mr. McCain scathingly attacked the 'fat cats' who were not willing to make sacrifices while fighting a war," which makes give-'em-hell McCain such an attractive object of fantasy among some Democrats, as a V.P. nominee to run with Kerry.

"I fondly remember a time when real Republicans stood for fiscal responsibility," Senator McCain said on Thursday. "Apparently, those days are long gone for some of those in our party."
