Century of the Common Iowan: Latham Better Watch Out
Excerpted from this post at Century of the Common Iowan
Rep. Tom Latham better wash the ink off his fingers and watch out.
"What's playing out here is that being a rubber stamp for George Bush is politically dangerous to life-threatening." --Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL), quoted by the Washington Post, on the Lieberman-Lamont primary race and the threats posed to candidates backing the Iraq war.
What has Tom Latham done other than parrot Republican talking points and vote the way Tom DeLay and Bush want him? Of all the Iowa Republicans in Washington, no one is a bigger empty suit than Latham.
Dr. Selden Spencer is out there stressing affordable and accesable health care, renewable energy, reducing the deficit, and providing solutiuons to the problems that Americans face. When people start hearing this message and see they have another choice, Tom Latham may find his political career in jeopardy.
