Phil Gramm, grease weasel scumbag that could only be elected in some benighted territory like Texas, has resigned from the McCain campaign after calling the United States a "nation of whiners" and the multiple economic woes we are going through a "mental recession".
Let's be clear about this. If we as a nation make the horrendous mistake of electing John McCain, Phil Gramm will have either a major cabinet post or be chief of staff. This trip to the woodshed is completely cosmetic. It's not like he needs the money that McCain pays him. His wife was a board member of Enron, which means she got paid big time and was not hosed by that company's criminal collapse.
The 21st Century Republican party is about thievery, plain and simple. Anyone who believes in fiscal responsibility can't vote for these people, and if you are a Christian, know that these people regularly and proudly break the Eighth Commandment, and when asked about it, they break the Ninth.
