Those of us who listen regularly to the Infomaniacs of WTAW are aware that Chet Edwards (D-TX17) calls in on Wednesdays to spread disinformation…..errr I mean, to be interviewed by Scott DeLucia. One of the focus group buzz words Mr. Edwards uses constantly is bi-partisanship. “The people want us to work/come together in a bi-partisan way...”
We could make it a Wednesday Morning Bi-Partisan Drinking Game where every time we hear the word bi-partisan we dribble our caffeine beverage down our chin and onto our shirts prompting either a complete ensemble change or at the least rapid use of Shout wipes or a Tide To Go Pen to salvage our shirts. In fact, according to a great economic fallacy – this game might even spur on our nose-diving economy by increasing visits to the cleaners and purchase of Shout Wipes and Tide-To-Go pens, not to mention all the pre-stain treatments for home laundry care. As our President and Vice-President taught us – spending money at a burger joint out of their own pockets when the U.S. taxpayers already purchased them a chef-prepared meal at the White House is good for the economy. Paying for the same meal multiple times is the same as going through a week’s worth of dry-cleaned shirts in one day – which is great for your wallet and therefore great for fixing the American economy….eerrrrr well, the press seems to think so…so it must be true.
Sorry, I digressed from my topic of Chet Edwards (D-TX17) and bi-partisanship.
How does Chet score on party line voting? According to the Washington Post, Chet Edwards has voted with a majority of his Democratic colleagues 98.7% of the time during the current (111th) Congress. Check out Chet’s compadres in Democrat Party Bi-Partisanship here. Not only is Chet Edwards (D-TX17) not bi-partisan, he’s a hard-core leftist, not the middle-of-the-road sort of moderate Democrat he projects cheerfully on the radio.
In short, he’s just a political huckster used car salesman giving us the “only driven by a widow woman to the beauty parlor and grocery store on Thursdays and to church on Sundays” jive about bi-partisanship every Wednesday morning. The guy’s got to go next election.
