Today Stupak announced his retirement, blaming travel, and saying he had already completed much of what he aimed to do in Congress.
“I’ve accomplished what I want to do. Either I run again and I’d be there forever or it’s time for me to make the break; it’s time for me to move on,” Stupak said.Republicans quickly called this retirement for what it is - the chickenshit, whimpering with his tail between his legs way out for a pathetic little man, who sold his soul to the devil for a little noteriety and an airport or three with his name on them.
“After selling his soul to Nancy Pelosi, it appears that Bart Stupak finally found the courage to tell her no," said Ken Spain, communications director of the National Republican Congressional Committee. "The political fallout over the Democrats’ government takeover of health care has put the political careers of many Democrats in jeopardy, thanks in part to Stupak’s decision to abandon his alleged pro-life principles."Thanks Bart... you sorry piece of worthless garbage. Don't let the door hit your sorry ass on the way out. Sorry you had to travel so much to earn that measly $175K salary and be wined and dined and bought nice gifts just to flip a lever in the right direction.
I hope you have a nice speech prepared for the day you meet your Creator. You're gonna need it.
