Representative James Carr Now Republican Monday, October 03, 2005

Representative James Carr of Hopkinsville announced he was joining the Republican Party today in Frankfort, standing next to McConnell and Whitfield. I'm sure my pal Cynicus will have something to say about this.

i know absolutely nothing about him. Currently, i'm trying to get my father in Hopkinsville on the phone so that i can try to learn something about him.

But off the top of my head, the kind o guy who'd jump to the Republican Party in the middle of a Republican scandal is not your average sort.

What a dirtbag. And why did he need McConnell to stand with him to make the big announcement? What a baby.

Considering his stated reason was that the "changing morality" of the Democratic party made him need to jump ship???

OK,... What? The Democrats were putting on a show of NOT being for sale? Admittedly in Kentucky that might be viewed as a bad thing, but I suppose he needed to keep the "For Sale" sign on his office door and by jumping ship he took out the equivilent of a full page ad to lobbyist.

When Politics becomes a matter of Morality and Morality must be so tightly tied to Politics, we are entering (Entered,Cynicus?) a Theocracy.

Mitch must've promised some good stuff for him to switch. Of course it might not have taken much either. I do agree with Cynicus though in that one must question his intelligence for converting when the party is in such trouble.
