    Deconstructing the facade of John Ensign - Monday, April 5, 2010 | 2 a.m. - Las Vegas Sun

    Apparently no one wants to stand up for him, not even fellow GOP Senators.

    Hes a POS and is as dirty as Gibbons the govenor of Nevada.

    They are both part of the republican revolution of 1993.

    This is news?

    If we discover a toe-tapper in the ranks we shun them....not praise them like Democrats do.

    That's something the GOP does right.

    Like the Dems rallied around Dan Rostenkowski, you mean?

    When a Pol gets caught with his hand in the cookie jar, he's likely to be get thrown to the wolves.

    And that is not entirely a bad thing, either...assuming he's really guilty, of course.

    Are you seriously trying to claim that the Left didn't rally around Rostenkowski?

    ROFLMNAO... Come on Ed.

    The Democrats ran defense for that criminal for DECADES...

    You mean like Charlie "What Tax?" Rangel and William "Cold Cash" Jefferson were "thrown to the wolves"? :eusa_whistle:

    I just don't get it with these guys. It's like they get to Washington and live under some delusion that they're untouchable despite the long list of political death row inmates that have preceded them.

    Rangel was forced out of his committee chair.
    Jefferson was both striped of his committee assignments and the party funded a primary challenger to him in the next election. Short of shooting him, what else could they do?

    After how much time passed, after it was beyond obvious, to even the casual observer, that they're guilty as hell?

    And what of the outright tax cheat who is the current Treasury Secretary?

    As detestable as the republicans are, at least they take their out own trash.
