Political Hack of the Week

This weeks winner of the award has surpassed political wannabe status and has gone straight into the status of political hack. He is the first to do so. The winner this week is Democrat Candidate for the Senate from Ohio Paul Hackett. For those of you that do not know this is why this moonbat wins the award.

"The Republican Party has been hijacked by the religious fanatics that, in my opinion, aren’t a whole lot different than Osama bin Laden and a lot of the other religious nuts around the world."

Not only did this hack state that the Republican Party are a bunch of religious fanatics but he compared them to Osama bin Laden. Now of course as you would expect this statement drew some fire. Let's see what Mr. HACKett had to say in response.

"I said it. I meant it. I stand behind it. Equal justice under the law for all regardless of who they are and how they were born is fundamental to our American spirit and our American freedoms. Any person or group that argues that the law should not apply equally to all Americans is, frankly, un-American.”

“The Republican Party has been hijacked by religious fanatics, who are out of touch with mainstream America. Think of the recent comments by Pat Robertson – a religious fanatic by any measure – that the United States should assassinate a democratically elected leader in Venezuela, and that Ariel Sharon’s stroke was divine punishment because Sharon wished to trade land for peace.”

“Since the Republican Party has been utterly unable to stand for something positive, they have created an atmosphere of fear and intimidation, and have pandered to religious fanatics not to vote for something they believe in, but to vote against their fellow Americans with whom they disagree. Those among us who would use religion and politics to divide rather than unite Americans should be ashamed."

What??? You do not have to be a psychologist to see this guy has some serious problems. I mean come on. Pat Robertson is hardly in control of the Republican Party and most on the right, myself included, have chided him for his outrageous remarks.

If the Republican Party are nothing but religious fanatics why would they have to pander to religious fanatics to convince them to not vote for what said religious fanatics believe in but to vote against people that the Republican Party, a.k.a. religious fanatics, disagree with? Does anyone else have a headache now? Maybe I missed something in that last statement. If anyone would care to explain it to me feel free.

Usually the real moonbats of that party wait until after they are elected to make insane statements. Luckily for the people of Ohio this one has shown his psychosis before it was to late.
