In gutless fear over the real possibility of a Gadsden flag-waving teatard taking away his beloved seat at the government trough, Tom Reed, NY-23, voted against keeping the government open last night. Since I am on his mailing lists even though the mercy of redistricting took me out of his district, I was wondering how he would spin that. Here’s what turded into my inbox moments ago:
Last night, I voted against maintaining Washington’s status quo of governing by crisis.
Our nation faces monumental challenges, and we cannot continue kicking the can down the road.
America needs real leadership to deal with the problem of our enormous national debt, which is approaching seventeen trillion dollars.
With the next crisis looming in just three months, I am working tirelessly to craft long-term solutions to our challenges, but I need your help.
That first sentence is so fucking twisted I had to read it a few times to try to figure out just how many lies it encompasses.
The other Western New York Republican who soils his boxers every time he sees the shadow of a tricorn hat is Chris Collins (NY-27), who voted with Reed for default and crisis. Buffalopundit is worth a read on that jackass.
