    Well I think I have my first nominee for "whining lib politician of the week award". Obama can't enter because he's already got a "lifetime achievement whining award".

    Failed Democrat Pol Sues Critics Over Election Loss

    There's nothing quite like a politician scorned.

    When voters in Ohio's 1st Congressional District threw Democrat Steve Driehaus out of office after only one term, he did not bow out gracefully. No, he decided to get even. So he did what anyone does in today's culture: he sued somebody.


    Charging that its activities contributed to his defeat and thus to his "loss of livelihood," Driehaus is suing the Susan B. Anthony List, a group that supports pro-life candidates for Congress and which has been one of the leading and most effective organizations involved in the fight to cut off federal funding to Planned Parenthood.


    What a freaking nancy boy! And the Judge who is going to allow the case to go forward is of course an Obama appointee and low and behold also a former President and Director of Planned Parenthood.

    Talk about a conflict of interest. :lol:

    Here's the link to the article.

    Frankly--I am surprised that some of these democrat politicians that got their behinds kicked in Nov. 2010--didn't sue Obama---:cuckoo:

    It looks like we have several house democrats that are retiring and are bad-mouthing Obama right now.

    I heard about this earlier. This man should be laughed out of the court. Then he should have to pay attorney's fees for trying to put this farce over on anyone.

    I'm cracking up thinking about Obama having his legal team preparing a potential "wrongful dismissal lawsuit".

    Just when I think Dems can't surprise me anymore by being anymore ridiculous, they always do.

    Which means that pretty much every politician can sue other politicians for running attack ads - the majority of which are short on facts and long on speculation and accusation. It would be great if we stuck to issues instead of lying about the other guy. Admittedly, it wouldn't be so 'fun', but we'd get better politicians.
