Who decides this? what's the policy on appointing folks?
And they both want a guest worker plan. What an amazing coincidence.
NO, NO, please tell me this is not so... NO NO NO.
He is 100% pro-amnesty. He'd bring them all here tomorrow if he could.
This is horrible.
I haven't sent them anything in so long, I'd have to ask them to send me money...
and..... why not JD Hayworth? He's out of work right now.
Mel got a 100% from the American Conservative Union 2005
http://www.conservative.org/archive2/senate.asp. I wouldn't call him a RINO
A guy with 100% from the ACU is too far left?!?!
Good grief, who ISN'T too far left then?
I'm surprised they didn't appoint Vicente Fox.
You got to be F'N kidding me!?!?
Did you see this yet?

This is a travesty. It looks like the GOP is learning absolutely nothing from last Tuesday.
So the RNC is shooting themselves in the foot, only aiming much higher.
Or, as Dandy Don Merideth used to sing on Monday Night Football, "Turn out the Lights, the Party's Over".
Because he's a loser.
And not a loser like Steele, who lost an incredibly difficult race that where the deck was stacked against him. A loser who lost a race he was almost incapable of losing.
Hayworth and Allen are the two biggest losers in the US for 2006.
Ole Mel hasn't been too active as a Senator. He has been pretty much in cognito since taking office.
This year, I got a letter from the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, and they asked for a donation. I wrote, "I won't give you any money because you might give it to RINO's, including Lincoln Chaffee or Olympia Snowe."
Oh boy.. we're in trouble [sigh]
Most of the people here have a problem with his surname.
