Senator John Kyl from Arizona has temporarily stopped the “Tax the Crap Out of Them” measure that the House of Representatives recently passed in a 328-93 vote [as an aside, the 85 Republicans who voted for this measure…just step down or switch your affiliation – thank you].

“I don’t believe that Congress should rush to pass yet another piece of hastily crafted legislation in this very toxic atmosphere, at least without understanding the facts and the potential unintended consequences,” Kyl was quoted as saying

Now that we have established that he is a liar, everything he has said, and will say from now on, is suspect at best. He should, at least, be kicked off the Senate Banking Committee, at best, be impeached. Dishonesty is dishonesty. Democrats need to show that they have some principles.

Yeah, who am I kidding?
