Another entry in the “Could These Guys Be Any More Hypocritical” Sweepstakes–
Phil Gramm resigned today as John McCain’s campaign co-chair and top economic adviser after calling US citizens “a nation of whiners” last week. He claims to have resigned, as most people who lie about why they’re resigning do, because he “doesn’t want to be a distraction” from his candidate.
I could live with the lie if he’d stopped at that. But no. He had to follow that comment up by saying:
“It is clear to me that Democrats want to attack me rather than debateon important economic issues facing the country,” Gramm said. “That kind of distraction hurts not only Senator McCain’s ability to present concrete programs to deal with the country’s problems, it hurts the country. To end this distraction and get on with the real debate, I hereby step down as co-chair of the McCain campaign and join the growing number of rank-and-file McCain supporters.”
No, you lying hypocritical piece of trash. You attacked the entire nation, at least the huge majority of it who disagrees with your make-the-rich-richer economic rape-and-pillage policy. A few months ago when Barack Obama described some voters as “bitter,” your party crawled up his ass and tried to eat his intestines. When you say something that’s WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY worse, not to mention wrong, and get nailed for it even by your own candidate, you simply attack the attackers even as the door is smacking your lying ass on the way out.
There’s no Hell hot enough for this gang. They’ll never get their just due (prison for most of them, being stripped of all their wealth and turned out onto the streets for the rest), but they can’t be allowed to run this country any more.
