Condemnation On Sale Cheap!

Mr. Party of Death:

Time to Cash In [Ramesh Ponnuru]

Martinez resigns. Will the people who criticized Palin for not serving out her term go after him?


Mel Martinez is a Hitler, swirled about with little Stalins in a Pol Pot sundae.

Even money that after Martinez actually steps down he issues an angry statement that he quit because he just couldn't deal with the ignorance, incoherence and mindless hate that had come to characterize his party.

There are people who are wrong, right wingers to the bone, who don't like what their political movement has become.

The kids would recommend popcorn...

I'm not so sure about that one. He made some pretty good use of the standard tropes to get elected.

I await the news from Tierra sin pan.

I don't know much, as I haven't followed Martinez too closely. I do think he has become frustrated, to say the least, by his party's concerted effort to tell Latinos to fuck off. He's gotten a lot of shit from right-wingers for his Sotomayor vote. I don't know if all of this would be reason to resign. Martinez is certainly a party hack, but he's a Bush Republican, and right now the people calling the shots within the party are so far to the right, they're impatient with the Jeb! and W approach of trying to balance big-business interests with social conservative pandering.

I haven't heard of Martinez before this but I'm interested as to why people would not say Ha hah according to Ponnuru Martinez won office in 2004, swept in on the coattails of President George W. Bush's reelection and a bare-knuckle campaign style that framed Republican rival Bill McCollum as a ``darling of the radical homosexual lobby'' and Democrat Betty Castor as soft on terrorism.

His tenure in office was marked by several mishaps: On the floor of the Senate he passed along a memo suggesting the political benefits of the plight of Terri Schiavo, a comatose woman who died after a legal and political battle in Tallahassee and Washington.

The betting odds are that a sex scandal is right around the corner.
