Is Republican Congressman Brian Bilbray (of California, Virginia, and a lot of other locations as he carpetbagged his way back into Congress) auditioning to replace annoying left-wing “comedian” (he’s not funny) Bill Maher?
It sure looks that way. As reported by the Wall Street Journal’s “Washington Wire,” Bilbray made this asinine, hateful attempt at a joke about I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby’s sentence commutation:
Republican Rep. Bilbray accepts Bush’s help for Libby but adds “he ought to make him go hunting with Mr. Cheney.”
Haha, funny. So funny, I’m ROFLMAO (Rolling On the Floor, Laughing My Ass Off). Uh, no. Actually, I’m just groaning and regretting that voters in his San Diego area Congressional District are such dumbasses.
As readers will recall, I wrote a whole column urging voters there to choose Howard Kaloogian, the only real conservative and strong patriot in the race, and noted that Bilbray was the puppet of fellow San Diego area Republican Congressman and Hezbollah/Assad fan, Darrell Issa a/k/a “Jihad Darrell.” Read the column again to refresh yourself on just who Brian Bilbray is and why I’m not at all surprised that he made this comment in completely poor taste.
And don’t forget that Bilbray (and Jihad Darrell and fellow Hezbollah-supporting Republicans, Congressman Joe Knollenberg and then-Senator Spencer Abraham) took thousands in campaign contributions (and who knows what else?) from Brent Wilkes, the federally-indicted defense contractor who bribed and procured limos and hookers for convicted felon former Republican Congressman Duke Cunningham (CA). Bilbray is boneheaded and his no principles. And maybe he accepted limos and prostitutes from Wilkes, also. We’ll never know for sure. But Bilbray’s certainly in no position to be attacking Libby, who never committed any crime and has been the victim of a witchhunt, in which he isn’t even the witch.
Sorry, but no-one–on either side of the aisle–should get away with uttering such crap.
