What the ****?!

What in the **** is wrong with U.S. Rep. John Duncan (R-Knoxville)?

I have no qualms with Republicans those who've been openly critical of the Bush Administration's handling of the Iraq War -- especially those Republicans who started ramping up their criticism during the dark days of 2006 (see William F. Buckley, Jr.).

That said, I have absolutely no use for Republicans who abandon their conservative economic principles.

Yesterday, Republicans in the U.S. House offered a budget yesterday that, if it had passed, would have replaced the Mondale-esque tax-and-spend Democratic budget. 38 Republicans, including Tennessee's own Jimmy Duncan, joined the Democrats in voting against it. It failed, 157-263.

From the Club for Growth:

"This is a very enlightening vote. These 38 Republicans voted against their own party on the one bill that establishes all of the discretionary spending for a full fiscal year. In other words, it wouldn't be unfair to say that this budget defines what it means to be an economic conservative. And yet, these 38 Republicans voted against it. It speaks volumes about their misguided priorities."

"It speaks volumes about [Jimmy Duncan's] misguided priorities."
