How Can Anyone Ever Vote for Either Davis Again?

Constituents of both Davises needn't wait until next year to send a message to them that it's time to retire, and this November Jeannemarie can be replaced with Chap!

Check out the latest outrage from Tom excerpted from

The House just passed the War Profiteering Prevention Act by a vote of 375-3. It criminalizes war profiteering. Did someone decriminalize it? Not allowed is "overcharging in order to defraud or profit excessively from war, military action, or reconstruction efforts" and if Bush signs it-- lol-- it will be "a felony subject to up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $1 million or twice the illegal profits of the crime."

If your mind works anything like mine, you're probably wondering what kind of sick slobs voted against this, right? I'm sure you know which party they all come from. The misanthropes who don't want to see war profiteering made illegal are:

-Richard Baker (R-LA), who has voted with Bush on every single Iraq roll call. H'es 100% so why sully that now?

-Tom Davis (R-VA), who is now trying to appeal to a much more right-wing and lunatic fringe GOP base as he tries to run for the Republican nomination to replace Senator John Warner and is trying to show that, at heart, he's just as insane as Eric Cantor-- or even more so. In the past, when he just had to deal with a moderate suburban district outside DC, he even once-- out of 55 roll calls-- opposed some Bush-Cheney scheme of destruction in Iraq. But that was then. Now's he's desperate to butch up his image. That and a big fat bribe from Erik Prince, the North Carolina Republican war lord who runs Blackwater and has given Davis over $700,000 in "campaign contributions." A real American that Davis. This was his argument against the bill-- which even kooks like Patrick McHenry, Mean Jean Schmidt and Doug Lamborn couldn't buy: "Hundreds of contractor lives have been lost over in Iraq, and I think the widows and the mothers, of these sons and daughters who've been killed in Iraq would be, I think chagrined to hear their sons referred to as profiteers."

-Mike Rogers (R-AL), as crazy as they come, so nothing more or less could ever be expected of him. You want to know exactly how crazy? Just look at his voting record regarding the well-being of America's military personnel. He's a lot more interested in the well being of America's war profiteers than of the young men and women who are on the front lines.

The Davises rock, penis breath.

"penis breath"?! you say that like it's a bad thing. And, o.k., the Davises do rock, if by rock you mean suck. how u like me now, nusty rail?

Beltway Progressive said...

The Washington Times says, "Rep. Thomas M. Davis III, Virginia Republican, opposed the measure because he said it would have "disastrous though unintended consequences" and make it more difficult to recruit profiteers ... I mean contractors, to work in Iraq.

Where did you find the Prince donations? That guy tries very hard to hide his donations.

jsrutstein said...

Beltway Progressive, the bulk of the post, including the bit about the Prince contributions, as I indicate in the post, is an excerpt from The folks over there can be quite caustic, but I don't think they just make stuff up. In any event, I try to be very careful in letting my readers know where I get stuff, mostly because I don't pretend to be a journalist, and secondarily because I don't want to get sued. Thanks for reading and commenting.

Beltway Progressive said...

Hey, you were right on about the Davis contributions. The donations were reported in the Post by Dana Millbank here:
Republicans, meanwhile, proved content to shill for a major donor. Prince's father helped to bankroll the religious-conservative movement, and his sister, Betsy DeVos, is a big Republican fundraiser who married into the Amway fortune. Prince himself has given $236,000 to GOP candidates and conservative causes -- typical of a defense contracting industry that, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, gave nearly $1 million to members of the oversight committee since 2003 -- 83 percent of it to Republicans.

[Democrats accepted small donations, but...] Republicans took a more favorable view of their benefactor.

"We should take care not to prejudge," said Tom Davis of Virginia ($717,829).
