Tuesday's Top Ten List: What's Wrong With the Right

1) Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), Pete Sessions (R-TX), Ron Paul (R-TX), and John McCain (R-AZ) all voted against the stimulus and gone on campaigning that it was a failure, yet they all sent letters to Obama cabinet members asking for a piece of the pie.

2) Republican Ohio congressional candidate Rich Lott dresses in Nazi Waffen SS uniforms as part of re-enactments.

3) Meg Whitman, Republican gubernatorial candidate for California who, during the primary battle to win the GOP nomination spoke on the side of Arizona's anti-immigration bill.  Once she won the nomination she quickly did an about face and spoke about immigration reform to help secure the Latino vote in the general election.  Sounds whorish (venal or unscrupulous person) to me.

4) Carl Paladino, Republican gubernatorial candidate for New York, said that children should not be "brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option."

5) Ken Buck, Republican senatorial candidate from Colorado who says being gay is a choice and is like alcoholism.

6) Christine O'Donnell and Sharron Angle who don't believe the 1st Amendment IS the separation clause.

7) The Republican dominated Arizona state legislature and the ditzy governor that passed laws eliminating the need for a permit to carry a concealed weapon AND making it legal to carry a loaded concealed weapon into a bar.

8) Richard Shelby (R-AL) who is blocking, AGAIN, a nomination.  This time it is Peter Diamond to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors.  Shelby claims he is concerned about Diamond's qualifications.  Errrr Diamond won the Nobel Peace Prize in Economics.

9) John McCain for his attacks on Barbara Boxer because she said some non flattering things about him during the 2008 campaign.  You were running for President, did you expect her endorsement?  Grandpa Simpson needs to find the retirement home in Springfield.

10) Carly Fiorina, ex-CEO of HP (canned) and GOP candidate for Boxer's seat in California who when asked by Chris Wallace (Fox...that's right Fox News the home game for Republicans) SIX times to explain what cuts she would make to offset the $4Trillion deficit increase from making Bush tax cuts permanent couldn't answer the question.  Isn't she supposed to be some business expert?
