Republican stands up to the Tea Party, and loses his job.

I feel bad for this guy. He tried to maintain his Conservative principles while rejecting the worst of the Tea Party. What did that brand him? Not conservative enough.

He lost his primary race, so he's gone once his term is up.

It was the middle of a tough primary contest, and Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.) had convened a small meeting with donors who had contributed thousands of dollars to his previous campaigns. But this year, as Inglis faced a challenge from tea party-backed Republican candidates claiming Inglis wasn't sufficiently conservative, these donors hadn't ponied up. Inglis' task: Get them back on the team. "They were upset with me," Inglis recalls. "They are all Glenn Beck watchers." About 90 minutes into the meeting, as he remembers it, "They say, 'Bob, what don't you get? Barack Obama is a socialist, communist Marxist who wants to destroy the American economy so he can take over as dictator. Health care is part of that. And he wants to open up the Mexican border and turn [the US] into a Muslim nation.'" Inglis didn't know how to respond.

    Of course he didn't know how to respond to something that asinine!

    Guano: Prophet, what is swastika shikakia shampoo?

    And it took me a second to realize that "honey egg and mayo ass a deep treatment" should be "...mayo as a deep treatment."
