While on the Daily Blog Rounds

I found something at Obnoxious Fumes, an interesting blog by someone who actually sounds as pissed off as me. It seems that the Dimmy Donk nine haven't been doing their jobs, while they bitch and moan about the President.

The job of an elected official is, in part, to vote on legislation put before them. The job of a political candidate is, in part, to campaign so as to meet as many people as possible. Therein lies the conflict. Several Democrat presidential candidates have missed a significant number of votes on Capitol Hill, including important votes dealing with Iraq, while campaigning for the White House and attacking President George W. Bush for his handling of the Iraq conflict.

(....)


So far it's the same old news. But it gets better, once you see the numbers.

Congressional Quarterly has been tracking votes in both the House of Representatives and the Senate during this session. There have been 397 votes cast in the 108th session in the House and 290 votes cast in the Senate. So far, Gephardt has missed 356 (90%) House votes.

He missed 90% of the frigging votes?!?!?! And yet he thinks he has the right to bitch about government policy? "I stand against this bill on the strongest terms!" Well then, you voted against it, right? "Um, well, I stand against this bill on the strongest terms!" Right. WHY THE HELL ARE WE PAYING THIS BUTTNUGGET?

Kerry and his fellow White House hopefuls have been pressing hard against the Bush administration on Iraq and the war on terror. Kerry, however, missed votes this year that dealt with Iraq's reconstruction and the Iraqi Intelligence Commission. In total, Kerry has missed 52 percent of the votes cast in the Senate this year

So he had a chance to say something, but didn't do a damn thing! Now he just bitches at the president. Hey, great leadership there, you worthless non-working partisan puke! Maybe just once you could take time out of your busy schedual from raping the unsuspecting taxpayer with a sandpaper condom and DO YOUR FRIGGING JOB!

Most of the others among the Democrat field have also missed votes this year. Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) has missed 115 votes as of Monday. Sen. Bob Graham (D-FL), who announced his candidacy in May, has missed 72 votes. Sen. John Edwards (D-NC) has missed 20 percent of the votes cast this year.

I guess it would be too much to expect these walking wastes of oxygen to actually work for a living, but when they can't even be bothered to cast votes on policies and bills that decide the fate of our nation, they've stopped being just annoying poster children for retro-active abortion and gone to blood-sucking parasites that simply need to be eradicated. Preferably with a 12 guage shotgun.

And who is the only one of the Loony Left Nine to actually show up to work? Dennis Kucinich. Quite possibly the farthest left of the bunch. It really makes you wonder just how the Donks plan on running the country, doesn't it?
