Blue Dog Comes Home

Alabama freshman House Member Parker Griffith is switching to the Republican Party. He's from a conservative district, and he voted against the stimulus.

This is a good sign.

Oh--and he's a Doctor. Some traction will come of this one....

Silver lining to the loss of a Conservative in Democrat's clothing: despite his overwhelming record of voting the GOP line, wingnuts won't like him and will run a very scary "true" Conservative against him, fracturing support. We moonbats can then run a nice Liberal against that mess.

The downside, though, is that his is a critical swing vote that could kill the chance for a filibuster -- oh wait, that was Specter -- this guy will simply continue not to have an impact.

But still, and this goes for switchers on either side, I really think there's something underhanded about a politician who runs on one party and switches to another while incumbent. It's a reminder of the dangers of voting the Party rather than the platforms of each candidate.

The "Unqualified One" will now probably attewmpt to punish Alabama by closing or moving all military activities within the state.

Not that the Obama administration is vindictive.

The Blue Dogs are just cannon fodder anyway, throw away Congressmen. They were recruited to run in districts the Dems couldn't otherwise win and they are expected to last only a term or two. Their function is to get a temporary majority so as to pass Obama's crazy leftist agenda. It's as simple as that.
