Log Cabin Welkomez Nuu Cheef of Staph

Perhaps if one spent more time working to meet with White House officials for the past 5 years (including the very important role of Budget Director), one would be able to actually spell the name of the now-new White House Chief of Staff. This from Log Cabin (Republicans) own press release:

Log Cabin Republicans Thank White House Chief of Staff Andy Card for His Service to the Nation

(Washington, DC) –”Andy Card has served the country and President George W. Bush with distinction. We thank him for his service to the nation,” said Log Cabin President Patrick Guerriero. President Bush said, “Andy Card has served me and our country in historic times: on a terrible day when America was attacked, during economic recession and recovery, through storms of unprecedented destructive power, in peace and in war.”

“As a fellow Massachusetts native and former state legislator, I’ve seen Mr. Card bring his integrity and commitment to public service to the White House during remarkably challenging times,” said Guerriero. “We wish him well in this new phase of his life. Log Cabin looks forward to working with Josh Bolton [sic] as he takes over as White House Chief of Staff.”

President Bush’s new Chief of Staff spells his last name B-O-L-T-E-N. Our United Nations Ambassador, John Bolton, does spell his name the Log Cabin way. Maybe Patrick was confused?

Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure that Patrick has no problem spelling abortion, Solomonese, hatred, victimhood, Massachusetts Republican, Kennedy, Schumer, Clinton, first-class airfare, fundraising, behind closed doors, and rubberstamp.

I just wish the Log Cabin gang could spell: DIALOGUE and PARTNERSHIP and use them in the same sentence as REPUBLICAN MAJORITY.

Former Log Cabinite Jeff Cook Quits Race For Congress

As reported right here over a week ago…

Via email from Jeff Cook for Congress

March 28, 2006

Dear Friend:

I would like to take this time to express to you my heartfelt gratitude for the support you’ve shown over the past six months. As you know, last September I formed an exploratory committee to consider the possibility of running to represent New York’s 19th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

We have put together a great team of talented individuals, raised nearly $100,000 and had the privilege of meeting hundreds of neighbors and families from across the Hudson Valley. We’ve talked about the issues that really matter and what Americans should be able to expect from their elected officials. I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from those in New York and across the nation, and today I find it difficult to write this letter.

After months of consideration and honest conversations with family, friends and supporters, I have decided not to seek election at this time. Of course, this is not an easy decision. As we have explored this race, I have come to understand the hard reality of challenging an incumbent of one’s own party in a primary. In order to win, we would have to run an incredibly expensive and negative campaign—the type of campaign that is not in the best interests of the Hudson Valley, our long-term efforts or the values that have motivated me to seek public office.

In the months ahead, I will continue to be a voice for fiscal and ethical accountability and our inclusive conservative message that one day I hope to take to Washington. I will remain active in my community and work hard to build a grassroots network of support. Together, we will achieve victory at the appropriate time.

Once again, thank you so much for your friendship and support. We have laid the groundwork for future success, and more importantly, our message has been heard.

Sincerely,

Jeff Cook

Paid for and authorized by Jeff Cook for Congress Exploratory Committee

My sources tell me he had only raised $40,000 and spent $30,000 of it at the last FEC report. But hey, what’s $60,000 among friends?

I admire Jeff for having the guts to run for Congress. I am completely baffled as to why you would take on an incumbent of your own party at such a young age. I don’t think it did him or his former boss, Patrick Guerriero, any favors with the majority party leadership on Capitol Hill.

GP Prediction — Jeff Cook will become at least an “independent” (if not a born-again Democrat) like former Republican state legislator Steve May or closeted liberal DC Congressman David Catania.

Culture of Corruption

So liberals wail and beat their chests when the President, using his authority to wage war in the 21st Century to protect Americans, okays eavesdropping on suspected terrorists in the USA when they make calls to their buddies overseas.

But where are the wails for “censure” when a United States Congressman explicity and knowingly violates the wiretapping laws for his own party’s political benefit?

Jim McDermott: Lawbreaker – Michelle Malkin

A federal appeals court ruled today that Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., violated federal law by turning over an illegally taped telephone call to reporters nearly a decade ago.

In a 2-1 opinion, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that McDermott violated the rights of House Majority Leader John Boehner, who was heard on the 1996 call involving former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

The court ordered McDermott to pay Boehner more than $700,000 for leaking the taped conversation. The figure includes $60,000 in damages and more than $600,000 in legal costs.

McDermott leaked a tape of a 1996 cell phone call involving former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to The New York Times and other news organizations.

I hope it won’t take another 10 years to find out and prosecute the United States Senator who leaked classified information about the War on Terror to the media!

Illegal Immigration Must End!

I’m hoping that Americans get as excited and angry about the watered-down Senate immigration bill as they did about the Dubai ports sale. We have got to toughen our borders first, and worry about law-breaking refugees second. If you are in this country illegally, you should not have any rights under this nation’s Constitution. It is a pretty obvious conclusion.

I am a product of an immigrant family who came through Ellis Island in the early 1900s and did it legally. If the immigration process is cumbersome, good. We cannot absorb every refugee from every nation on earth into our country. It is impossible!

To give you an idea at what that might look like — just take a gander at the burning riots in France this year. Someday soon Los Angeles and New York will be under the same strain if we allow unfettered access to our country.

Please call your Senators today and urge them to toughen the weak and pathetic immigration bill that was passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday. It doesn’t go far enough to protect America and to ensure that those who are here illegally are made to follow our laws and our Constitution. I have no more right to go to Switzerland and expect instant citizenship than those from Mexico or Canada do to come here and demand the same. Tell your Senator to support amendments making the Senate bill in line with the House-passed bill.

Finally, is there any doubt as the result of this story that illegal immigration is a security threat? This sounds like an hour episode out of “24″ for crying out loud! (Hat tip: Polipundit)

Congress — wake up! We need a real fence, real enforcement of our exisiting immigration laws, and the balance on this issue needs to tip to national security, not political correctness sensibilities.
