Hey Joe Scarborough: I Found a Courageous and Honorable Republican!

After Republicans shed gallons of crocodile tears over Alan Grayson's blunt description of their health care plan, I posted a video of John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Virginia Foxx and Jean Schmidt individually refusing to condemn some pretty over-the-top rhetoric promulgated by Rush Limbaugh. In a nutshell, Limbaugh compared Nancy Pelosi to Adolph Hitler and described ObamaCare as being Nazi policy.

Look... I'm a partisan. I do advocacy press. With a dash of activism thrown in to spice up my day. But I was honestly disappointed when the most powerful Republicans in the United States refused to stand up to the Viagra-smuggling, opiate-addicted, sex-touring, American embarrassment that happens to have the nation's most popular political talk show. Rush Limbaugh is a scourge on humanity and in a sane world, would be locked away in a place he could do himself and others no harm.

Instead, virtually every elected Republican (I have many more videos coming soon) has refused to even mildly distance themselves from Limbaugh's obscene right-wing rants.

There was one exception. One decent, courageous and honorable Republican in the House. And I found him.

His name is David Reichert. Ironically, he was the incumbent who defeated one of my favorite Democratic challengers in 2006 and 2008. I would have named my son "Rush Limbaugh Stark" if it would have gotten Darcy Burner a seat in the United States House of Representatives in 2006 or 2008... Alas, Dave Reichert kept his seat...

And now I realize that things could be a lot worse for the constituents served by the Congressman representing Washington's 8th Congressional district.
