You would think that the highest priorities of the Republicans would be balancing the federal budget, fighting terrorism, coming up with a comprehensive energy plan, improving schools, and renewing our alliances with foreign countries that share our beliefs. Well, according to this piece from TPM, you would be wrong.
Sen. Elizabeth Dole, head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, has sent out a fund-raising letter begging for donations to keep the GOP’s death grip on power:
“If Democrats take control of the Senate in ’06, they will cancel the Bush tax cuts, allow liberal activist judges to run our courts and undermine all Republican efforts to win the War on Terror. Even worse, they will call for endless congressional investigations and possibly call for the impeachment of President Bush!”
So, the very idea of the Democrats gaining the majority is more of a threat to America than Al-Qaeda.
Well, at least we know what the Republicans’ priorities are.
