Has there ever been a Republican who was not a piece of shit?

Remember back a few years ago when the GOP-dominated House passed a bill of impeachment against President Clinton?  Remember that?  How about we check out some of the Republican criminals who led the charge against an innocent President -- every one of them worshiped by the Tea Party.

First comes Newt Gingrich -- you know -- Newtie who believes that marriage is between ONE man and ONE woman and ANOTHER woman and ANOTHER woman and . . . 

Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) led the push for Bill Clinton’s impeachment. Following a disappointing election in November 1998, he announced he was stepping down as Speaker and resigning from Congress. 

Gingrich later admitted that, while he was pushing for Clinton’s impeachment, he was engaged in an affair with a Congressional aide. “There were times when I was praying and when I felt I was doing things that were wrong. But I was still doing them,” Gingrich said in 2007. He later said the situation was “complex and, obviously, I wasn’t doing things to be proud of.”  Sure thing, Newt, sure thing.  Then whythefuck did you continue doing these things that you had done your whole life??

Then there's the reprehensible, two-faced hypocrite Bob Livingston of Louisiana.

After Gingrich announced his resignation, Republicans unanimously selected Rep. Bob Livingston (R-LA) to succeed him. Livingston represented the party as Speaker-elect in the led up to the impeachment vote.

On the day of the impeachment vote, Livingston announced he was resigning following revelations that he had engaged in an extramarital affair. According to Hustler Magazine Publisher Larry Flint, who offered a reward for information about the sex lives of members of Congress, he “found four women who said they had been involved with Mr. Livingston over the last 10 years.”

Finally, the third of our GOP hypocrites is former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert.

Following Livingston’s resignation, which occurred on the same day the House voted on impeachment, Rep. Dennis Hastert (R-IL) quickly gained support of the Republican leadership to succeed him as Speaker-designate. He began formally serving as speaker in January 1999, and held that role while the Senate conducted their trial on the articles of impeachment. 

On Thursday, 28 May 2015,  Hastert was indicted on charges that he illegally structured $1.7 million in payments to an individual in an attempt to cover up prior misconduct. According to reports, the payments were allegedly intended to “conceal sexual abuse against a former male student he knew during his days as a teacher in Yorkville, Ill.” The LA Times also reported that “investigators also spoke with a second man who raised similar allegations that corroborated what the former student said.” 

I rest my case.
