The Reptile Brain

Barbara's recent widespread notoriety came about as a result of her tough, smart confirmation hearing questioning.

This is a cross-post of something I posted at my blog... An example of how ruthless Republicans are about eating their own:

Move America Forward:

Transcript of an ad targetting Senator Voinovich for expressing reservations about confirming Bolton for Ambassador to the UN:
[dinner sound effects/cutlery]

Wife: Honey, were you watching C-SPAN today? Did you hear how disloyal Senator Voinovich was to Republicans and President Bush? Voinovich stood with the Democrats and refused to vote for John Bolton, the man President Bush has chosen to fight for the United States at the UN

Husband: No, I was streaming it on the Internet at the office, but from what I could tell, Senator Voinovich played hookey from the hearings?

Wife: Yeah that’s right. He’s missed most of the Bolton confirmation hearings, but then shows up at the last minute and stabs the President and Republicans right in the back.

Husband: That’s ridiculous – the United Nations needs reform, we need someone who will stand up for the United States and fight the UN’s corruption and anti-Americanism.

Wife: Shame on Senator Voinovich. After the Democrats smeared Condoleeza Rice for Secretary of State and Alberto Gonzales for Attorney General, how could Voinovich side with the Democrats in smearing John Bolton?

Husband: It seems like Senator Voinovich has become a traitor to the Republican Party.

Wife: Enough’s enough. I’m logging on to Move America Forward dot com to register my protest with Senator Voinovich’s office.

Husband: What was that site? Move America Forward dot com ?

Wife: Yep, Move America Forward dot com
You get that, folks?

If you don't do as you are told, you are disloyal, you are shirking responsibility, you are backstabbing President Bush and the Republican Party. You are a traitor.

There is only the party. You are with us or you are against us.
