List of Republican Sell-outs On The START Treaty

December 15, 2010
By

The Senate just voted 66-32 to start debate on the START treaty, which would fulfill a long-held dream of liberals and evil dictators everywhere – to eviscerate America’s missile defense systems.

Evan Bayh was absent during the vote; his vote will make it 67, exactly enough to ratify the treaty. The usual Republican suspects voted for START:

Bennett (R-UT)
Brown (R-MA)
Collins (R-ME)
Graham (R-SC)
Lugar (R-IN)
McCain (R-AZ)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Snowe (R-ME)
Voinovich (R-OH)

Of these, only Lugar, Brown, and Snowe could be primaried next year. As I’ve said before, I will personally donate $1,000 to any credible primary challenger against Lugar.

    “Republican” should be in quotes when referring to these dog droppings.

    ‘only Lugar, Brown, and Snowe could be primaried next year’

    Hopefully we can rid ourselves of Lugar and Snowe, but I think Brown is the best we can hope for in Massachussetts. If he loses a Dem will take his place.

    I don’t think Lugar ever loses in Indiana either, more’s the pity.

    McCain is such a dick. I thought the one area where he was supposed to be half-way decent was national defense.

    The debate on this may be extended to next year,or so i’ve read.

    This is obnoxious.

    When did this become a priority, again?

  6. Jay on December 15, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    By the way, this “tax deal” they passed, sucks!

    And now they’re considering a 1.1 trillion dollar spending bill?

    I guess these people really are immune from reality…

    “When did this become a priority, again?”

    When the democrats realized they might not be able to pass it as is next year.

    God damn all of them. Traitors, every one.

  10. rightwingyahoo on December 15, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    Btw, McCain’s rep of foreign policy is undeserved.

    AZ Kiss my ass I hope the drug cartel takes over your whole fucking state stating with McNasty ranch…

    Why would this bother anybody? This is the price you pay for electing people for power sake.

    Rather than worrying now about primarying Brown or Snowe light up their phones. Snowe is not feeling real secure about 2012 and if you give cogent reasons to Brown about why he should put this off to 2011 he may well listen. He is in an interesting situation. He CANNOT skim any votes from the left, he has to move the middle of Mass (which is well to the left of the middle of the nation) and deliver 100% of the right and center right who are a very vocal group. Light up his phones with well thought out reasons why waiting a few months makes sense and he is likely to vote against ratification. As for Snowe just let her staffers know that if she folds on this you’ll contribute to her opposition in a primary. Maine has shifted, not as far as it need to, but it is an ongoing process. While I doubt that we’ll have a better choice that we can actually get elected there in 2012, a hard primary challenge will probably bury her. Spin up her staff and she’ll find a “technical” objection to the treaty “which regretfully prevents her support”

    Light her up

    Morons. Why oh why does anyone think that Wingnut Republicans know anything at all about foreign policy when they can’t even understand the benefits of treaties and the futility of “Star Wars” missile defense?

    So anyone who is opposed to Taxpayer-subsidized useless defense pork should be kicked out of congress, right? As if the defense industry needed more plants and moles in government so they can enrich themselves at our expense by hiding behind the flag. There’s nothing more despicable and Un American to me than someone who uses the pretense of “National Defense” to bilk us out of our tax dollars.

    This is what you are supporting. Do you work for a military contractor? Actually, with the exception of the probability that you’re an immigrant from a Muslim country, does anyone here actually know anything about what kind of self-interest your radical views support, POLIPUNDIT? Afraid to disclose this I’m sure, like all selfish cowards.

    Fuck you mctillpussy.

    No, you mean the futility of treaties and the benefits of missile defense you goddamned lying communist.

  17. Let's Not Mention That on December 15, 2010 at 6:25 pm

    George H.W. Bush — who?

    Condoleeza Rice — you can see why she would . . .

    Henry Kissinger — senile!

    Seven retired Commanders of STRATCOM, the U.S. military command responsible for the mission of strategic deterrence and related matters strongly endorse the New START treaty — whatever
    etc.

    Of course the two biggest asshole morons are the first to lash out in anger. You idiots are as predictable as a rabid dog, and not a whole hell of a lot smarter. Clearly.

    Go put on your Boba Fett Costumes and pretend you’re protecting America from a Missile Attack that a treaty might help prevent in the first place. Gee, it all makes sense don’t it…no treaty=arms race=more money for contractors, fearmongers, Republican Wingnuts of all stripes.

    And again, does anyone have ANY IDEA who the hell this “Polipundit” person is? For all you know he’s inflaming your hatred and anger for personal profit. Of course to you morons that pretty much explains the sum total of what you think America is all about.

    Gee, it all makes sense don’t it…no treaty=arms race=more money for contractors, fearmongers, Republican Wingnuts of all stripes.

    You stupid asshole, arms races happen with or without treaties. What are you from the 60s or something.

    Update your firmware, leftist douchbag. Bad guys always cheat. You’re disarming your own side. We are broke and our nukes are old and run down, nearing obsolescence. All this does is limit our capacity to tech up.

    You goddamned lying communist.

  20. P. Tillman on December 15, 2010 at 7:01 pm

    “Tech up”??? Oh, is that the new Luntz-coined term for Defense Industry Boondoggle?

    Here’s one: Try “Shut up” on for size. See how that fits for a while Captain LoonyToony.

  21. rightwingyahoo on December 15, 2010 at 7:08 pm

    Tillman, you ignorant slut.

  22. ATTILA on December 15, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    Mctillpussy and his ilk brought us pearl harbor,when we were training with broom handles for rifles. Mu the first fireball alight over the institution he is ensconced in.

    when they can’t even understand the benefits of treaties and the futility of “Star Wars” missile defense?

    You don’t even understand how successful missle defense actually is.

    Further, you don’t even know what the START treaty is.

    I want to destroy Lucy Graham. That girl has to go. Most of those names suck, but that one has to be destroyed.

  28. Kevin on December 22, 2010 at 5:17 pm

    Maine residents are to dumb and slow (and feminized) to vote out Collins and Snow.

  29. You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation but I to find this matter to be really one thing that I think I would never understand. It sort of feels too complex and very large for me. I am taking a look ahead to your next submit, I will attempt to get the hold of it!
