Send Republicans a Thank You!

By Byron LaMasters


But you can tell them what you think about redistricting here. Oh, but wait, it's already filled in... I guess there's the comments section.

Rick Perry's also doing his job to fabricate artificial widespread support for redistricting, asking people to send him a thank you:

Also on Monday, Perry's political arm, Texans for Rick Perry, distributed an "Urgent Request for Action," urging citizens to send Perry and other Republican lawmakers thank-you letters for their redistricting effort.

The e-mail includes a fill-in-the-blank form letter saying that the state of Texas owes a "debt of gratitude" to Republicans.

Arg. Too bad I'm not on Rick Perry's email list and I'd post what they're putting out there. Is anyone on it?

What a bunch of self-promoting assholes....

Oh, and Bush wants everyone to just put redistricting behind them. Uh-huh. Why didn't he tell that to Republicans two years ago? That's what we're supposed to do after we redistrict the first time for another ten years:

But President Bush, a former Texas governor, said Monday that all redistricting disputes in Texas have been divisive. "I mean if you look back, I can remember the battles in the '90s and '80s and people who perceived they didn't do well would complain about the partisanship, and hopefully they can get this issue behind them, they being both parties, and move forward with good policy for Texas," Bush said.

"Move forward with good policy for Texas"? Again, why didn't you tell the GOP leadership to do that six months ago? I must be confused...

To the courts we go...

Why isn't Tom Delay on the list of people deserving thank-yous?

So, Rick Perry is asking people to thank him for the redistricting. I wonder if he buys himself birthday and Xmas presents, too?

Thanks, Rick, for adding millions to the cost of running government and putting politics before governing.

I wouldn't trust that comments section. It looks to me like they might just be gathering the data to hand to Perry in a bunch. The Repub party could scratch any comments they don't like.

I figure a phone call or letter to Perry himself is more reliable.

First of all I want to express my Anger from the last election. We all know Bush and his brother Jebb and the Supreme Court had this Election Fixed! I voted for Al Gore and so did most of America.
But that done so its time to move on and Kick George Bush's Ass back to Texas where all the other Assholes live.

Go John Kerry!

Second of all I'm a Ham Radio operator and wanted to make the comment about Texas Hams!
Not only do we have to deal with them in the Whitehouse but also on Amateur Radio as well.
Texan's are some of the most rude, think there shit don't stink people I have ever seen.

There is alot of Hate on Amateur Radio and in this country towards Texas and all the Assholes who live there.

Hey Cowboys this is the 21 Century not the good old west! Texas does not own this country!
Its time to change this country and kick George Bush back to the farm were he belongs!

Don't mess with Texas its full of Assholes!

I noticed you were counting up the cost of the war in Iraq. Why don't you count up the cost of not going into Iraq? What would have happened if we had stopped Hitler when he attacked the Reinland in 1936?

2800 Americans dead on our own soil. Billions in damage, and New York City will never be the same. A response was imparative, or it would be open season on Americans around the world. On September 13th 2001 Congress voted to give the President the authority to root out terrorists where ever he felt they existed. We have captured several members of Al Queda in Iraq. If there is no connection between Saddam and Al Queda, what were the terrorists doing in Iraq?

If Saddam had allowed UN inspectors into his country, the torchure chambers, and executions would still be proceeding as scheduled. Saddam failed to comply with UN resolution 1441 for eight years, he was openly supporting terror in Israel, and he was murdering his own people by the thousands. Al Queda had terrorist training camps in the north of Iraq as well as support from his government.

The Prudential Building in Boston is standing tall right now because of intelligence we gathered while fighting in Afganistan. How much would it have cost if Al Queda was successful in destroying that building?

Even John Kerry and your precious Hillary Clinton voted in favor of the war.

Bush was right to go to war in Iraq. He'll be getting my vote in November.
