Dick Armey is a Bigger Putz than Joe Lieberman

Former GOP Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Dick Armey, has done it again. When he was Speaker he referred to fellow congressman Barney Frank as "Barney Fag." More recently he insulted MSNBC political commentator Rachel Maddow, referring to her as "Maddox, a television personality who has a PhD in something that doesn't matter." Lately he was one of the D.C. lobbyists paid by the drug and insurance industries to oppose health care reform.

Oh, I don't know, at the moment, I think Lieberman wins out on this one, if for no other reason than he wields more power now for the insurance companies in Connecticut than he should ever be allowed. Jeffrey Penn May = www.askwritefish.com

I think pretty much all the Republicans nowadays are worse than Lieberman. Lieberman is just bad because he's worse than most of the Democrats. I know it sounds awkward to see things along partisan lines, but really, the Republicans are the pits these days.

The Republicans have essentially been shut out of the democratic process, so how can they be characterized as anything other than "excluded".

@breakfastpop: That's an amusingly delusional viewpoint.

livelonger, what planet are you from? Or have you just had you head buried in the sand. Wake and see what is going on. The republicans have are being excluded on most things. Nothing bi-partisan like BO preached before the election. The democrats have a total majority to ram down bill they want, and they still can't get it done. What a joke this is turning into.

This next 4 years is going to be the death of democrats if they keep spending - spending and spending. Getting out of debt by spending is like an alcoholic getting over alcoholism by drinking.

And Ralph, for the last freaking time. We don't dislike BO because he is black. We dislike him for his policies. I guess Pelosi and Reid must be black, too, the democrats' logic.

Keep on hubbing

breakfastpop, the GOP has chosen to stay out of the legislative process, except for their announced goal of "breaking" the president even if they have to "break" the country to do so. Partial exception: Olympia Snowe.

eovery, I accept your statement that you don't dislike President Obama "because he's black." However, there are plenty of others who do.

The plutocracy owns them ALL. Like all empires, this one must collapse. Seems like it's going to set a record for the fastest rise and fall in history.

Thanks for the education Ralph. Why so many people still have trouble seeing that politicians are getting paid off by health, pharma and insurance companies is beyond me. Glad I stopped by. He is in fact, a one man Dick Army.

He wants a woman that will stay at home and bake him a pie. Some of these guys are still living in a warped Leave it to Beaver fantasy, and the only way they can deal with reality it by making abrasive comments. There bitterness shines through.

Joe Liberman has made a fool of himself more than once and will do it again. He is the ultimate fool

Great Hub Ralph. Lieberman is a dangerous man, no matter how many people say he isn't, and being from Maine, I'm not altogether pleased with Snowe's performance of late either.

I love the title of the hub. This Dick Army is just another one of those right wing liars, one of the group that, for whatever reason, seem bent on ruining our country. It would be funny if it wasn't sickening.
