THE PEOPLE SPEAK — Issue-dodging ’pubs keep getting elected

— Good ol’ Rush gets his choice of what he wants for breakfast or not.

Ditto all the good ol’ folks at Fox News and the super patriotic right-wing news dingers.

Every ’pub pol inside the beltway gets a choice from a whole bunch of taxpayer financed eateries.

Guess what? Our Armed Forces in Afghan-istan don’t! Just fighting the Bush/Cheney war won’t get you fed!

Where’s our brand new congressman?

I see he’s toeing the line fast enough.

Oh, that’s right, that’s the Okie way. And besides paying off good ol’ Sheldon Adelson will always come first with the American taxpayer.

Just keep electing all those issue dodging ’pubs.
