Kick This Ass To The Curb, Arizona

I usually don't get interested or involved in individual Congressional races; I'm more of a "big picture" kind of guy. But I am the type to draw connections, and one name has sprung up once too often for me to keep quiet.

Representative Raul Grijalva (D-AZ).

Grijalva has represented Arizona's 7th District since 2003, and he's done an outstanding job.

Remember, though, "outstanding" is a value-neutral word.

In 2004, representatives of Code Pink and other associated nutjobs wanted to travel to Fallujah (then the hotbed of the anti-American insurgency, where American contractors had their corpses hung from a bridge) and give the "people" of Fallujah a little token of apology -- $600,000 in aid and comfort. They achieved this because they had the support and sponsorship of several members of Congress -- including Senator Barbara Boxer and Representative Grijalva.

During the fuss over Arizona's controversial plan to actually enforce immigration laws, a lot of people called for an economic boycott of the state. That ended up doing exactly squat to the state, but one of the louder voices calling for the boycott was... you guessed it, Raul Grijalva.

He had some "questions" about the 2004 elections, and was so troubled that he wanted to invite the UN to "supervise" Americans elections.

He is the co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the current nom-de-guerre of the socialist/Communist faction.

Finally, I was reading (and getting more and more disgusted and furious) about the stunts pulled by Democratic activist and scumbag (but I repeat myself) Neal Rauhauser. This guy does pretty much everything the Left accuses the right of doing, but since he's on their side, he gets a pass.

Right smack dab in the middle of the accounts of Rauhauser's alleged scumbaggery is a reference to some of his Democratic clients -- and rather prominently was one Raul Grijalva, who was so satisfied with Rauhauser's firm's efforts.

Force yourself to watch that video. That, folks, is the face of the contemporary Democratic party. That's what the Progressive Movement is all about.

Now, I'm not saying that Grijalva is as big a scumbag as Rauhauser -- that's a nigh-impossible standard. But it's clear that Grijalva is an enabler of Rauhauser's -- using his campaign and his office to raise money to pay Rauhauser -- and that's almost as bad.

Grijalva's opponent is the kind of candidate that makes the Looney Left's heads just asplode all over the place -- she's a Tea Party activist, a mother, a born-again Christian, and a genuine rocket scientist. Ruth McClung has been endorsed by both Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney, which oughta make a few heads on the other side asplode a bit, too.

You know what? I don't care that much about whether or not McClung would make a good Rep. (I think she would, but I'm speculating here). But she would have to work like hell to be worse than Grijalva.

And she's having a money-bomb today, too!

Grijalva, in a district gerrymandered to protect him, has gone from unbeatable to OMG, I'm behind in just a few weeks.

While Grijalva is pandering to entities without ties to his district or state his voting constituents are losing their jobs, homes, etc. I think they might just be tired of it.

Recent polling, albiet possibly biased, shows McClung as actually several points ahead of Grijalva amongst likely voters in the district.

I wouldn't have called him "outstanding."

I would have said ... "memorable."

As in, remember in November.

Well everything here may be true but the real question is did he ever put on a nazi uniform in a ww2 reenactment? I mean come on people you're not focused on the issues. Sarc off

I think you absolutely NAILED it on this issue. No, she may not be the perfect candidate, but while we have the attention of those in power we must started weeding out those who are enablers of our country's failure.

She may not be perfect, but is she worse than him?

I just thank God Michael Burgess is my rep. Cornyn is doing an OK job.

Hutchison on the other hand is living on borrowed time as an elected official. As soon as she has a conservative to oppose her, I will be volunteering to help them with their campaign.

Keep up the great work and lets see more of Duckie with the Koran!

Allah Quackbar!

Jim Addison:

What part of McClung's bio suggests she might not be a good Representative?

She's not a politician, lawyer, terrorist, socialist, or other known enemy of America, and is otherwise constitutionally qualified. Sounds good to me!

Grijalva has gotten away with all sorts of socialist, racist, anti-American crap for so long in his gerrymandered district that he didn't think twice about advocating a boycott against his own constituents in the midst of a recession.

Even parasites know they need something upon which to feed.

If McClung can pull it off, redistricting can help her keep the seat.

Jay, I have taken up a bit of a hobby in the last several months. I keep a little text file on my desktop called simply 'losers.txt'

It is the list of Dems I most want to see lose in November. Grayson of Florida tops the list... but I can remember to look him up the next day...

This list is really all the 'under the radar' dems like Raul Grijalva that I want to check up on the day after the election and really hope they hit the ashbin.

It's great fun and it will be more fun in November if 80% lose. You should try it. ;-)

I worked with Ruth at Raytheon Missile Systems, she is smart, capable and holds a clearance. She would have to have sustain massive head trauma, to be worse. Well, even that wouldn't do it.

How can anyone, it doesn't matter to me who they are, continue to support a person that tried his best to ruin by boycott, the small, medium, and large business people,and those they employ, IN THE VERY STATE HE IS SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT!! It's insanity, hate, or whatever by any other name. Whoever votes for Grijalva, richly deserves him as their rep. Good God!!
