They have been ignoring the people too long. They have been warned for a long time. They can be replaced. If they had done their jobs, this wouldn't have to be.
But the people are sick of them and their big government, and won't take it long.

I is really weird that people talk crap about BIG Government until they want something from the Government. Like Sarah Stalin getting that Socialist Restraining order. But the government GAVE her one. We have to protect the wingnuts too. Everyone is equal. You cry about Freedom of Speech and Upholding The Constitution, but ONLY FOR YOU. Our Givernment is no bigger now than under W. The difference is Obama is spending it on long neglected needs of the American people. Bush just charged his 2 wars and programs that did nothing except increase the deficit. Why didn't you gripe about the national debt and big government when Bush was president?

You can wrap a piece of dung in a pretty bow but it's still a piece of dung and it still stinks.

Portman resembles that piece of dung

the dems are about to lose thier large majority, maybe even the majority altogether. the mudslinging has started. and if this comes true you'll see them once again become unhinged. the protests will begin, with plenty of rediculous signs and slogans will fill the evening news broadcasts. this ought to be interesting.
