On “sharp rebukes”

The GOP response was fast and furious after the President’s speech on health insurance reform last night, with GOP Rep. Charles Boustany (R-La.) leading the charge and sharply rebuking” Obama:

Rep. Charles Boustany pounded back in the GOP response to President Barack Obama’s health care speech Wednesday evening, sharply rebuking Obama for what he characterized as a sweeping package steep in costs and short on benefits for families and small businesses.

Ouch.  Who is this Rep. Charles Boustany, anyway?

According to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, Rep. Boustany received $1,256,056 from health and insurance interests since first being elected in 2004.  The total counts for more than 20 percent of all of his fundraising.

A Republican with conflict of interest issues?  Say it ain’t so!  And while we’re on the subject of conflicts of interest, self-interest… hypocrisy… wait a minute, what’s this?  Why, it’s the dreaded “Death Panel” section of Obama’s health insurance reform act, the one Sarah Palin claims will KILL GRANNY™©®.   (AND TRIGG™©®!)  And the sponsors of that fearsome piece of legislation are… who?:

Mr. Blumenauer (for himself, Mr. Boustany, Mr. Davis of Kentucky, Mr. Kind, Mr. Tiberi, and Mr. Yarmuth) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce, and in addition to the Committee on Ways and Means, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned

The late great Dr. Gonzo once described GOP presidents as being “so crooked they need a brace of Secret Servicemen to help them screw their pants on every morning”.   I think that goes double for GOP congressmen.
