  1. It is representative democracy and he will represent those who elected him. I’m more concerned he’s a Democrat.

  2. Yeah, I say the same thing about people who freak out that Pelosi or Kyl or Lott or Kennedy shouldn’t be in office. They were elected, and apparently the people they represent like what they’re doing. I don’t like any of those guys (or gal) a whole lot, but I’m not about to even make a statement that they shouldn’t be in office b/c I don’t like how they vote.

    The thing with Ellison is even worse because some are trying to give a religious test for public office, but it’s along the same lines.

  3. The hypocrisy here is staggering. There are examples of prominent Republicans who did not take an oath of office on a Bible. One example is Linda Lingle, governor of Hawaii, who is Jewish. I’ve never heard anyone complain about how she is bringing about the end of our civiliaztion. And probably some of those complaining now also supported Joe Lieberman, who almost certainly didn’t take his oath on a Christian Bible.

  4. Sadly, racist, xenophobic authoritarians like Goode also were elected and represent a constituency that apparently likes what he stands for.

  5. “Second, Jeb really only has three real options if he wants to remain in politics: the Senate, the Vice-Presidency and the Presidency. As such, it isn’t like he has a huge array of short-term options.”

    It would of course be outrageous, meanwhile, for a sitting President to appoint his brother to a high-level Cabinet post…
