Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R) Says It’s Not “Necessary” to Address SCOTUS Gutting of Voting Rights Act


So, is Rep. Bob Goodlatte BADlatte in the running for worst Congressman in Virginia or in the entire country? At the national level, there’s a great deal of competition, but BADlatte’s blocking of comprehensive immigration reform, his generally far-right-wing record, and now his idiocy on the Voting Rights Act, certainly puts him in the running! Personally, I’m just trying to figure out who’s more of a disgrace to Virginia: a) BADlatte; b) climate science denier Morgan Griffith; c) Bob McDonnell; d) Joe Morrissey; or e) Ayn Rand-worshipping Dave Brat. Thoughts?

    I simply cannot pick the worst bad boy from this lineup of idiots elected by people voting against their own interests. Actually, I would say Morrissey isn’t in the same league as the rest of these Bozos. He is a disgraceful example of a man who thinks with a brainless part of his anatomy, is a bonafide jailbird, etc. However, I understand he usually votes according to the interests of his constituents.

    Bob Goodlatte is a leech who has spent al but 10 years of his life drawing a paycheck from the same federal government he professes to hate, a liar who promised to serve only 5 terms in Congress, yet is beginning his 12th term. Every year he introduces a ridiculous bill to force a federal balanced budget, hoping that his constituents don’t understand the workings of a modern economy or a fiat currency. (They don’t.) He is a tool of his campaign contributors, a man who doesn’t even bother to have town halls or to worry about campaigning.

    Morgan Griffith is a self-promoter who first went to the General Assembly as a moderate Republican, so moderate that he received the endorsement of the Virginia Education Association. That ended as he curried favor with Bill Howell and the far right wing. He rose to be the ALEC-baptized majority leader in the House of Delegates. Sensing that racial prejudice would give him an opening to run in the the 9th congressional district, he did so, even though he lived in the 6th district. He knew that Rick Boucher was vulnerable for not being enough of a suck-up to the coal industry. (He was right.) Griffith, though, was more than happy to prostitute himself to coal interests

    Dave Brat is simply a well-educated nut cake, who just might be taken down by his own party for daring to take down Eric Cantor.

    Bob McDonnell is a self-righteous felon who thought God would be OK with his throwing his wife under the bus in a vain attempt to stay out of jail, especially since he was living with his priest. (It didn’t work.)

    Sorry. I just can’t pick the most egregious of these horrible guys.
