Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

As if House Republicans didn’t have enough to worry about right now, Congressman Walter Jones (R-NC) is circulating a letter with this simple demand: If you want to be speaker, promise everyone that you don’t have any “misdeeds” in your personal life.

So is this a case of a House member with genuine concerns about seeing yet another shoe drop? (Jones did serve through the reigns of Newt Gingrich, Bob Livingston, and Denny Hastert, after all.) Or is it yet another underhanded plot to undermine the GOP leadership by spreading nasty rumors?

Watch the video, and decide for yourself.

    The party, of Nixon, does not have skeletons in its closet?

    Greedy Opportunists Party members are all gays and inhuman acting like straight and human. There’s a lot of unknowns the electorate do not know about this party and it is about time the nation learn its religion. A religion of hate and bigotry.

      Funny you consider gay people skeletons when you Liberals LOVE gays. More phonyness.

      • Dominick Vila

        What makes you think he is a liberal?

        • paulyz

          His comment was degragating ALL GOP members as gay or inhuman, acting like straight & inhuman. This is quite insulting to gays. He makes a lot of biased ass-umptions.

        Funny how you idiots love homophobes and other bigots.

        • paulyz

          I believe the anti-White bigots are mostly in the Democrat Party. Not agreeing with homosexuality as normal behavior is just that, not homophobic.

          • Sand_Cat

            Your delusions, projections, and lame attempts to redefine words would be comical if they weren’t so pathetic. You of course have also changed the terms: You and all the other bigots have every right to believe homosexuality is not “normal”; it’s just a little unclear why that should mean discrimination and violence against them should be legal and even “commendable.” “Gay skeletons” as you put it would not concern “liberals” if not for the hypocrisy of those GOP lawmakers and others who condemn gay people and call them names while indulging their own predelictions in that area. And look at it this way: these little hypocrisies should carry more weight with the homophobic crowd than the hypocrisy, but you guys are so blinded by hatred and phobia that you can’t acknowledge that.

    Looks like some Republicans recognize the dangers of supporting more out of control zealots, with a past and a record that are often inconsistent with their political rhetoric. Unfortunately for Jones, the only way to find an honest Republican would be to search in Mars now that we know there is water in that planet and, potentially some life forms. Who knows, there may be a living zygote or embryo kicking there that could be harvested and turned into Speaker of the House. Such probability should give us hope, since it is bound to produce better results than what we have witnessed in recent years.

      It’s hypocrisy and a misguided sense of self-importance that are the problems.
