    48? 51? 53 percent constitutionally competent?  We KNOW the Democrats have abandoned any allegiance to the constitution, but its truly disturbing how 'our side' has characters that would so willingly disregard the TRUE rule of law.

    Gary Peter's percentage is lower than John  CONyers. Who'd a thunk it?

    The rating for Mike Rogers didn't get mentioned in the sycophantic article about him in yesterday's Detroit News.

    Three words: Gelatinous hermaphroditic Eloi.

    We've been through this topic before.

    Ronald Reagan once said, "The person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally, not a 20 percent traitor." If the GOP is going to see success in the future, this mentality needs to change.

    I would argue that a person who agrees with me 51 percent of the time is an ally, especially if that person can win--and that is what the Buckley Rule is about.

    See that?  Fred Upton doesn't even meet the young Inkerbell Schmuckly "gold standard" other than an assh*le with "r" after his name won.  CD-6, embarrassed yet?  Hell no, for 25 years they keep re-electing curlicue light bulb Fred.

    Only two U.S. Reps from Michigan that are worth a damn.  However, that's saying something in D.C., Inc. that is bought off by corporate and special interest lobbyist who could give a rats ass about the Constitution.  Should anyone really be surprised at the other losers?  I'm not.

    ...the elected officials who are opposed the most by the republican kakistocracy, are also the same ones who know how to actually perform the job they were sent to Washington for?
