Let's take the three hypocrites who now lead the Republican Pary one by one. Sarah Palin is left out because the GOP decision-makers have decided to keep her out of the major spotlights because she tends to put her foot in her mouth regularly (not to mention the chauvanism of the Republican Pary). So, let us review some things about each of the three acknowledged right-wing leaders...[remember, that the most damning thing about them is their phony high moral countenenance]...
Rush Limbaugh. His criticism of the liberals and his so-called adherence to the law was certainly challenged when he tried to enter the United States from Mexico with illegal drugs in his possession. Oops. Of course his irresponsible statements hoping the President of the United States fails, no matter what the circumstances or consequences, should once and for all make a mockery of everything he says. But it hasn't, and he remains a stalwart in Republican circles. It is difficult for an old rake to turn over a new leaf.
Dick Cheney. Do I really have to go into detail about this slithery monster? He sold out the nation's future energy policies in secret meetings with energy CEOs, some of whom have already been indicted and found guilty. He manipulated billions of dollars being spent on his war in Iraq so that it went to his former employer Hallliburton (who gave him a fabulous going-away bonus). He lied and lied and lied and lied and lied to the American people. He is at least partly responsible for the disasterous foreign policies in the Bush years, including the illegal war in Iraq. His continuous criticism of gays, though he has a gay daughter, is certainly an embarrassment for normal fathers ...but not for this lying hypocrite.
Newt Gingrich. He led the parade to impeach Bill Clinton for being intimate with a young worker in the White House. Problem is, Mr. Gingrich himself was also fooling around with young 'uns when he was Speaker of the House. Not only that, but he had the total lack of propriety to tell his then-wife, who was in the hospital having just been diagnosed with cancer, that he was leaving her. When it comes to scum, he personifies it. Ironicially, the guy in the House (Henry Hyde) who led the impeachment trial admitted that he was an adulterer in his forties, but that he termed a "youthful dalliance." Further irony, when the immoral escapades of Newt became known to all, he stepped down from being Speaker of the House, and the guy whom the Republicans chose to replace him had to withdraw when it was found that he also was an adulterer.
"We have among us a class of mammon worshippers, whose one test of conservation or radicalism is the attitude one takes with respect to accumulated wealth. Whatever tends to preserve the wealth of the wealthy is called conservatism, and whatever favors anything else, no matter what, they call socialism." -Richard T. Ely
