Bart Stupak (D - Judas), You Ignorant Slut!
Thank you Rep. Stupak (D - Mich, Upp-yer-Ass Peninsula), for officially obliterating what remained of the myth that was the "pro-life" DemocRAT. All it took was the promise of an executive order (Aside: It's not worth the paper it's printed on.) saying no funding would go toward abortion, and you & your fellow boy scout troops folded like Blue Burrito tortillas. Real principles y'all got there! Of course we should have expected this cave since you declared your favor of the basic bill a while back speaking in Cheboygan:
Congrats, Mr. Stupak: the issue of protecting the unborn was so important that it took just over $726K in grants by the Obama Administration toward three airports (all coincidentally residing in your district) just two days before the Obamacare vote in order for you to flush it down the toilet. Hope such a flagrant bribe was worth your 15 minutes of face-time and soon-to-be lifetime of infamy and shame. "Airplanes flied, babies died!"
As for November and Stuck-on-Stupak's hold on the district, according to Hot Air, the district leans slightly Republican, according to the Cook Report, but Stupak’s won every general election there since 1992 by double digits and the last seven by no less than 19 points. The current GOP candidates in the race include surgeon Dr. Dan Benishek, equipment operator and trucking company CEO Don Hooper, lawyer Linda Goldthorpe and Tom Stillings, who ran in 2008 GOP primary. Also weighing the race (What better time than now?) is Cheboygan County Drain Commissioner Dennis Lennox, 25, who has formed a committee to explore a potential bid to run for the 1st House district. Whoever ultimately wins the GOP nod can expect a huge influx of funds from citizens throughout the nation, as Stupak has unofficially tattooed a bullseye on his back. This race may prove just how big an anti-DemocRAT wave there winds up being.
