Payback's a Bitch

Well, I guess there is such a thing as karma. This morning, all of the staff of Congressman Rodney Alexander (you know, the so-called Democrat who switched to the GOP to be The Hammer's go and fetch it boy) quit. That's right, this via DailyKos, all of them. The DCCC, along with dozens of House Democrats, are demanding Alexander return the money they gave him. In all, it reportedly adds up to $70,000. That would be nice to get it back, especially since we have a legitimate and worthy candidate running against the Turncoat du Jour. The website, which is currently not operational, is www.blakesforcongress.com. But, though Alexander has betrayed us in real life, his webpage tells a different story. As of the early hours of Tuesday morning, this is from his campaign site bio:

"Rodney, a pro-life, pro-2nd Amendment Democrat, is an active member of the Blue Dog Coalition, and serves as a conservative voice in the Democratic Party in Congress. He is committed to helping his colleagues on both sides of the aisle find a bipartisan consensus on critical issues ranging from health care to tax reform.
What a sell out. Help put an end to this by giving to the D-Trip and Richard Morrison, the great candidate who is standing up against the single most corrupt politician in America: Tom DeLay.
