"Had Enough"?

It started right at the beginning -- George Washington had one, so did John Adams, Jefferson offered "Jefferson and Liberty", Lincoln had "Lincoln and Liberty", and who could forget "Jimmy Polk of Tennessee"?

And now we have Chris Carney's newest addition to the American campaign song tradition:



John Laesch, taking on Hasert, has also joined the song fest with this one:



And then there's good ole' Charlie Brown looking to boot John Doolittle:



Add to those, Jerry McEnerney, Robert Rodriquez, David Roth, Joe Sestak, and more.

While each iteration isn't exactly original, watching them seriatim, as I did, one realizes that they are all right on point -- the reasons to throw these bums out are all the same. The paradigm of the republican control of our government is the lock step/close ranks/stop thought tactic of control. The same sort of bad thinking and dirty politics which enabled and protected the likes of Foley, Rumsfeld, Cheney, and Bush as they have systematically set about to destroy our government, our world standing, our military, our environment, our economy . . . . .

Yeah, I've had enough.

Speaking as someone who has worked in Doolittle's area, I'm not sure there are enough people living there that disagree with Doolittle.

The people in that region seem to be content with warmongering, skimming 15% off the top of contributions, finding contracts for friends, etc...all in the name of "lower taxes."

Way, way, way more than enough.
