Watcher of Weasels

Watcher of Weasels hilighted a piece by The Anchoress called Attention GOP Leadership. I agree with them. I missed it when it was first posted (I was still getting caught up from my time in the hospital), but I urge everyone to read it now. Here are some highlights If your plan was to make people so disgusted with your cowardice

Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) asking Bill Frist to hold off on a probe of the disclosure of classified information on secret prisons to The Washington Post
, your disorganization
A leak suspected to have come from the office of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) complicated, confused and nearly derailed a joint effort by Senate and House Republican leaders to seek an investigation of the unauthorized release of classified information related to how The Washington Post discovered of the existence of CIA-run detention and interrogation facilities in eight foreign countries.
and your political tone-deafness
House Drops Arctic Drilling From Bill
that they either stop contributing to the RNC, or they decide to just sit out the next election (because what’s the point), or they decide to vote out every stinking one of you in the next elections, because you freaking well deserve ouster for literally doing nothing constructive and squandering your majority…well…you have succeeded spectacularly! Beyond your wildest imaginings, I am sure. I can’t think of a single reason to vote to re-elect a any one of you.
The only possible reason would be that a Democrat might be elected instead. What should be done is that reliable conservatives need to challenge the RINOs and the weak-backbone Republicans in the primaries.
The world is tilting, and you useless, ineffectual, dithering moneysuckers seem increasingly to be empty suits, given shape and movement not by ideas and a willingness to serve the electorate, but by wispy tufts of ambitious smoke. You seem directed toward nothing more than keeping your almighty Senate or House seat in your name. You give away your power, you give away your advantages in committee, you leave in place utterly feckless people like Arlen Specter and then, when you finally seem like you are on the cusp of doing something productive and right, like investigating the CIA or okaying drilling in a bare, muddly, uninhabitable tundra, you fall into a faint and go slinking back to your states and districts to gladhand and pump for money and then gladhand some more.....
