Jack Kingston: Lazy-Assed Whiner
So Steny Hoyer tells the House that they should be ready to work five days a week in the 110th Congress, soon to be under Democratic control. And the first thing out of Georgia GOP representative Jack Kingston’s mouth is a whine about how tough this is on congressional families:
"Keeping us up here eats away at families," said Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), who typically flies home on Thursdays and returns to Washington on Tuesdays. "Marriages suffer. The Democrats could care less about families -- that's what this says."
Hey smiling Jack, do you really want to talk about which party could care less about families? You voted to send thousands of Americans to a debacle in Iraq, and you vote to keep them there. I have no sympathy at all for you, when your war has just ruined Christmas for another ten families, who will never see their loved ones again. And you’re complaining about working five days a week, when you can’t even get the budget done on time, let along accomplish anything of substance these last two years?
Jack Kingston, you and Lindsey Graham should drag your sorry asses to Iraq and see real hardship and family sacrifice. You can empathize with Jack for his weekly two-hour taxpayer-paid plane rides to and from Georgia here.
