For an example of a bad Republican/conservative, we have Darrel Issa, who's now running for office in California. Here's Debbie Schlussel's report on the horrid things he's done:
Jihad Darrell, the multi-millionaire who constantly praised then-Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat (for having nice little hands and a great sense of humor!) at the height of Intifada violence and right after the Passover massacre, is mentioned in an article in The Hill, which focuses on liberal Dem Rep. Jane Harman's possible run for California statewide office.
Jihad Darrell, who is tight with terror host state Syria, got a ticket for speeding at the border. He responded with a "Do you know who I am?" redux, but the brave Border Patrol agent gave him the ticket anyway. Issa then tried to deunionize the Border Patrol (there was no DHS then) and is continuing to try to shut down Border Patrol checkpoints and offices at various points in his district. Jihad Darrell pretends he is for tougher immigration laws and enforcement, but the opposite is true.
No surprise, given that the Jihadist Congressman has lied throughout his career--about his spotty military record, about how he stole his business from its founder in a tricky court maneuver, about his criminal past, mysterious arson at his company's buildings, holding an employee at gunpoint, etc., etc., etc.
I dislike Arnold Schwartzenegger, having once learned that he hasn't tried to truly shed his shoddy background (keeping nazi artifacts in his house), and the choice of Issa as the candidate for California is no improvement. It's simply incredulous how the Republicans keep scuttling their chances at winning big when they don't have to, by choosing representatives with such awful deeds to their records.
