My story about The Brainwashing of Republicans has certainly become a blogosphere hit, and today we have more on The Family and C Street, a residential home for Republicans Gone Bad.
As meager details of The Family, the C Street residence housing wayward politicians, and the comments (or lack of comments) from the residents of C Street and/or past residents of this half-way house come to light, Ms. Maddow has come under fire for her reporting:
Which leads me to Zach Wamp, the Republican from Tennessee who’s been recently brought into the topic of C Street, by admitting the residents there have entered into a “secret pact” to not discuss their life in the compound.
I have to ask this question: Why has Wamp lived at C Street for twelve years? If C Street is the home for helping Republicans, what in the world did Wamp do two years after his arrival on The Hill to to be sent to live at C Street?
In a recent interview (funny how Wamp’s giving out all these interviews, but not actually saying anything), he states:
“In the state of Tennessee, if you are an elected official and you are involved in a Christian fellowship, it ain’t gonna hurt you,” he said. “There ain’t nobody perfect.”
Um. Congressman Wamp? You’re not involved in a Christian fellowship! You’re lock, stock, and barrel an integral part of this “operation” and have been for twelve years? Why? What kind of “spiritual guidance” have you needed for twelve years?
Here’s the scoop on Congressman Wamp. A Gingrich Conservative swept into office since 1994, he’s one of the original gang who swore to term limits, then reneged on that promise (although he’s running for Governor in Tennessee in 2010). In the news article quoted, Wamp was living in a “small apartment” in the DC area.
He’s also a cocaine addict, supposedly beating the habit in 1984 and subsequently found Jesus. Does this have anything to do with the reason he’s been a resident at C Street since 1997?
Is the man so weak he has to be locked up when he’s not working?
How about Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas? Why is he living at C Street?
Or Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma? The same guy who is discussed here?
Even Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, who believes that doctors who perform abortions should be executed and lesbianism is rampantly “afflicting” grammar school girls, “allegedly” counseled Ensign on how to cover up his prolonged and unrepentant sexual dalliance that was virtually incestuous. Coburn too, is a member and resident of “The Family” home, which is religiously incorporated, near Capitol Hill.
