    Waxman, the bat-faced moron, tried to explain how the Dims lost the Weiner seat in Congress (one they had held since 1923): His reasoning?

    The Jews wanted to protect their wealth, which, he maintains, is why anybody who votes GOP is likely to vote GOP. I keed you not. Henry Waxman | Jewish Voters | New York Special Election | The Daily Caller

    Not only is he engaging in the old anti-Semitic commentary about "greedy" Jews (he might be a self-hating Jew), but he is inadvertently ADMITTING that a vote for the Dim Party is a vote AGAINST one's own financial self interest.

    And in that last regard, he finally said something smart and accurate.

    Here then is a possible new Democrat-supported election bumper sticker for the GOP:

    "VOTE AGAINST YOUR FINANCIAL SELF-INTEREST: Vote Democrat!"​
    -- Harry Waxman says so!

    Well I guess there aren't many "greedy Jews" because the republicans don't get a lot of Jewish votes.

    They certainly didn't in Weiner's district --

    until a couple of days ago.

    Thus, it is possible that the situation is changing.

    I think Waxman needs to learn not to be so damned offensive.

    Stupid rejoinder.

    I'm not surprised.

    Your unarticulated (suppressed) premise is that "the past is inevitably prologue."

    What you have over-looked or chosen to ignore is that situations like this can be fluid. There are myriad examples of changing circumstances leading to changing alliances or affiliations.

    And no matter how ignorant you appear to be, the truth is you OUGHT to already know as much.

    Stop it. He never said greedy, he said they want to protect their wealth. What is wrong with saying someone wants protect their wealth?

    I agree on both counts. Waxman did not use the word "greedy." If my commentary about what he did say appears to suggest that he used that word, then I wrote poorly.

    I also agree that there's nothing "wrong" with saying that anybody wants to protect their wealth. A healthy SELF interest is a good thing. But in context, Waxman said it as though it was somehow a tawdry explanation for that remarkable vote.

    In any event, there IS nothing wrong with trying to protect your wealth.

    This is why there's nothing all that right about voting for the Democrat Parody.

    Capital letters are a bitch move.

    Study how long it took blacks to switch from 90% republican to 90% democratic.

    Study how long it took Southern white conservatives to move from democrats to republicans.

    The issues just aren't there. There's a reason Cantor stands out.

    Waxman was outing himself. He is among the many in government that still thinks wealth belongs to government and will say/do anything to get it.

    He's a twerp and needs to resign.
