    I think he also referred to political compromise as
    "date rape". What a sick mind.

    The Republican voters sat back and voted for these scumbags year after year. They didn't care how rotten they were as long as they won. The voters were 50% of the problem.

      Although he later claimed it was all a mistake. Armey did tell Hillary Clinton - to her face - that her charm was vastly overrated or some such. He also complained that Congress was being "feminized" when it was around 18% female.

        in the last couple of years, he was as sexist as could be.  Joan Walsh was the other guest and dared to challenged Armey's sick/warped world view and his response was "I feel sorry for your husband."   Matthews, to his credit, trashed him for the remark.  

        But sadly Matthews and too many of the press continue to give credence and airtime to these assh*les.

          ... mucky muck who had no idea what Personhood amendments were during a Tweety interview.  Can't remember his name, but he looked like he should be cradling a musket.  If he's the new public face of Freedomworks, they're going to be a huge turn off to a lot of people, left, right and center.
