Tom Reynolds speaks for the Republican party:

On yesterday's Meet the Press, Tom Reynolds, head of the Republican House Campaign Committee had this to say in an exchange with Russert: (emp add)
MR. RUSSERT: Now, here are the facts, and they’re not disputed by anybody, from the local Utica, New York, newspaper. “What the record shows: A bill ... shows a call costing $1.25 to the number 800-457-8462. The call was made at 3:26 p.m. Jan. 28 and was billed for one minute. ... Phone records show a call made at 3:37 p.m. using his calling card to the number 518-457-8462”—the same numbers exactly are right. “That number, he said, is for the office of the New York state Department of Criminal Justice Services.” An aide inadvertently dialed the wrong area code. Everyone admits it, and yet you put an ad on suggesting that this guy is calling sex hotlines. Is that fair?

REP. REYNOLDS: Well, first of all, chairman of the committee doesn’t know what the IE’s actually producing when it goes on, we pay for. Second, that ad is now down.

MR. RUSSERT: You said you’re responsible, that’s what the banner says. You can take it down if you wanted to.

REP. REYNOLDS: I paid for it. The committee paid for it, it was pulled down.

MR. RUSSERT: Is it, is it fair? Is it fair?

REP. REYNOLDS: Politics isn’t always fair, Tim, as both the DCCC and the NRCC know full well ...

Politics isn't always fair, and the Republicans are proving it every day.

More unfairness here (about the deceptive robo-calls).


Interesting how little the party of personal responsibility is actually responsible for.

Helping to cover up a known pedophile's predations on teenage make pages? We're not responsible!

Putting racist ads on TV telling southern voters that the black man running for senate wants has been fucking white women? We're not responsible!

Airing ads that are demonstrably false? We're not responsible!

And, tomorrow, those robocalls trying to throw the election by fooling people into thinking the Democrats are behind the calls? We're not responsible!

When a joke would bomb, Red Skelton used to say "I only say 'em, folks. I don't write 'em." But he said it with a smile, because Red knew he was on the hook if the bit went bad. Comedians have better ethics than the GOP.

How ironic that you should quote Red Skelton to attack the GOP, when Red was a Republican & Patriot himself. Stick with quoting Michael Moore, at least then we'll all know where you're truly coming from.
