America is not Rome. We have no Caesars. We have no emperors, no hereditary nobility. We do not have a mandatory state cult that worships the emperor, only the partisan cult of government in the Democrat party.
And instead of gladiatorial battles we have partisan so-called newspeople such as Katie Couric (D) and Charlie Gibson (D), and the equal opportunity populist firebreather Bill O’Reilly.
Frankly (heh), I think that Barney (D) deserves every bit of it and more. He was the primary patron and protector of Fannie Mae (D) and Freddie Mac (D) and the blame for the $700 Billion Bailout (D) hangs from his guilty shoulders. If he was Republican you can be sure there would be a perp walk in his future, because Democrats don’t hesitate to file criminal charges against opponents when they commit criminal acts, or even questionable ones.
When will Republicans fight using all the tools they have in their kit?
