What “moral authority”?

Posted by schroeder915 on April 28, 2006

On the watered-down ethics bill passed by the Republican-ruled House of Representatives, Rep. Christopher Shays (R-Conn.) said, “We’re losing our moral authority to lead this place.”

No Chris, you never had moral authority. You were given the privilege of serving the American people by winning a civil election.

Your job is to make laws, and enforce laws, that protect Americans from being ravaged by the powerful.

Your job is to answer to the needs of hard-freakin’ working Americans who are being screwed by corporations lining the pockets of the criminals currently running the White House and Congress.

Yours is a civic duty. Leave your morals and your authority in your church where they belong.

Anyway, did you really want to argue that the Republican leadership is moral? Now that’s a good one! I can’t wait to hear the comedy show monologues!
