    ...all of these alleged "moderate" Republicans, who have been decrying the government shutdown and claiming they'd support a clean vote on a Continuing Resolution, including Peter King, make me laugh. They had ample opportunity to vote to keep the government open (by not supporting the poison pill imbedded in the CR defunding Obamacare (and later delaying it)). Nobody put a gun to their heads and told them they had to vote for the Republican poison pill bill which led to the shutdown. But they did. They supported it. And now they are complaining because of the result of their own votes to...shut down the government.

    It's hard for me to determine who is worse...people like Louis Gohmert, who fulling relishes shutting down the government, of people like Peter King, who claim he's disgusted with it all, but continues to vote for the very thing he's allegedly disgusted with.

      I always have special contempt for the hypocrite.  An honest foe is an honest foe, you know you have to go to the mat with the Gohmerts.  The hypocrites are much lower than that.

      Clap On, Clap Off, The Clapper!
