DLTDHYOTWO, Jim. It’s been a crummy 15 years I’ve lived in VA-8, and watched the country increasingly go down the tubes since the Democrat takeover of Congress in 2006, knowing that you’re a ringleader of the debacle. I don’t mean crummy for me, personally: I’ve only endured one brief bout of unemployment. But, in doing the proper thing and voting against you, I guess I’ve voted “against my interests”. It seems like the Washington, DC equivalent of Occupy Wall Street, your career, only with women in lieu of drums. God have mercy on your soul, and help this country come to understand just how diabolical you and your ilk have been.
And now let’s take a walk through the archives, and sample the low notes:
|Inside Voice||Outside Voice|
|Ding, dong, da dork definitely departing!||This blog can do a victory lap at the news of “Gentleman” Jim Moran’s decision to spend more time with his family next year.|
|Is there an ulglier record of public disservice that we can think of? Well, yes, but the number is a lot lower than it should be.||We should say nice things about the gentleman.|
|He really has been a source of great post fodder. Like when ManBearPig flew in to tout the tired termite.Obama said “because of Jim’s leadership, our brave service members and veterans are better protected, our civil service is stronger, and our air and water are cleaner and safer”. If a thicker wallet is a sign of strength, then the civil service portion of that phrase is true.||Even if we did not always agree with Moran, we should try to find a way to respect his efforts, if possible. If not possible, at least go to some place like the Iwo Jima Memorial, and stand close to the statue, and try to transfer some respect from that to Jim Moran for as long as considering him is necessary.|
|Moran was so far out to lunch as to afford Chris Matthews an opportunity to appear reasonable.||Moran was certainly a man from a different era. Say, Tudor England, when the nobles were nutter and the peasants had best hold their peace.|
|While Virginia-8 includes the Pentagon and Mount Vernon, even the most abject tool of a veteran would have nothing more than absolutely necessary to do with a piece of work like Jim Moran.||It is possible that Wesley Clark may personally esteem Jim Moran.|
|Should we have been shocked at Moran’s support for the Ground Zero Mosque? Money spoke, and in the language of currenncy he enjoys fluency.||Moran’s regard for paying customers is a lesson for all politicians.|
|Should we have been shocked at Moran’s contempt for the military?||Moran’s regard for paying customers is a lesson for all politicians.|
|The Mark Center debacle is still jacking up traffic on 395 (way to feign surprise, Jim). I still hear mentions of the bizarre commuting arrangements triggered by the dopey decision to put those jobs Right There. One can only assume that your real estate portfolio was cheered by the result.||Moran’s support for the arts, as at the Mark Center, was offbeat. What no one understood at the time that the whole bullfrog gag was a Three Dog Night reference.That Jim Moran sure is a complex guy.|
|George Washington was a surveyor; maybe that explains some of Moran’s hankerin’ for real estate.||In defense of Moran, he never did anything that the voters did not permit, and in fact re-elect him to do. Admittedly, this is tantamount to blaming sheep for bespoke suits, but baaaad jokes are what I do.|
|The bit with Martin Bashir referencing Allen West as the hyena and Barack Obama as the Lion King. There has to be some kind of award for blending petty and stupid like that.||It is a good thing that Moran confines himself to cartoons. One shudders to think what could happen if he were exposed to any of Quentin Tarantino’s oeuvre.|
So then the question moves to whether (a) Patrick Murray will run again, and (b) whether conservatives can build the enthusiasm and turn out the vote to overcome whatever godless Commie freakshow zombie carcass the Democrats pump full of embalming fluid and send out to continue the Moran tradition of voting for MOAR GUMMINT!
