Sam Brownback Has Co-Sponsored Bills With The Most Liberal Senator!

by Jim Newell

Republican Senator and failed presidential candidate Sam Brownback, on a conference call today: “John McCain’s a maverick. He’s fought for a bipartisan fashion … I think that the biggest thing I’ve seen from Barack Obama is a willingness, aggressiveness, to talk bipartisan and yet to vote the hard left — most liberal member of the United States Senate.” A known liberal!

Hey Sam Brownback, remember that time you and Barack Obama wrote a Bipartisan op-ed for the Washington Post in 2005, about some of that Bipartisan stuff you two co-sponsored? [CQ]

I swear, at first I thought it said “…is my homoboy.”

SayItWithWookies June 26, 2008 at 4:46 pm

Gotta work on your Jedi mind trick, Brownback. Repeat after me: “These are not the contradictions you are looking for. They may go about their business.”

Doglessliberal June 26, 2008 at 4:46 pm

Goddammit, Wonkette, there you go again using those “facts” [said in Homor Simpson scronful voice].

freakishlystrong June 26, 2008 at 4:47 pm

Ok, enough with the “Maverick” shit already, personally in this dreadful, right-wing atmosphere we are all currently suffering through, I think the most “librul” member of the Sentate is a Maverick, (plus, it rhymes with “dick”)…

Doglessliberal June 26, 2008 at 4:47 pm

[re=25626]Truculent[/re]: well, that might well be true. He just hasn’t been caugh tapping yet. He probably has a major fetish for Mexican boys, given his rhetoric.

Doglessliberal June 26, 2008 at 4:48 pm

[re=25633]Doglessliberal[/re]: “scornful”. sheesh

SocialList June 26, 2008 at 4:49 pm

I’m from Kansas and now live just across the border in Missouri,and even the Republicans around here think Brownback is a boy fucker,and ignore the shit out of him.They’d vote his ass out in a heartbeat if a Rethug with a less sodomizing pedophile sounding name would run against him.

Tawmn June 26, 2008 at 4:49 pm

I always wonder: What the fuck is wrong with being a liberal?

Doglessliberal June 26, 2008 at 4:50 pm

[re=25635]Doglessliberal[/re]: JEEBUS. “caught”. OK, time for me to stop typing.

From the article I gather he forgot all the bi-partisan unity when he and Barry were doing coke in the back of a limo while he sucked Barry off.

[re=25634]freakishlystrong[/re]: Ahhhhgggg..”SENATE”

What, no “boy fucker” tag? For shame, Wonkette!

Canmon (the Inadequate) June 26, 2008 at 4:55 pm

Darfur is a partisan issue? It’s not like there’s a pro-genocide lobby in Washington.

ronaldpagan June 26, 2008 at 4:57 pm

DUDE, this kind of shit is the reason Bear-Bear is methodically breaking my heart by putting his money where his mouth is. First voting for the FISA bill and then being all “Fuck yeah we should give the death penalty to child rapists” yesterday. I knew all this “reaching across the aisle” talk was gonna come back to haunt him.

Cape Clod June 26, 2008 at 4:59 pm

What was the bill they co-sponsored? I’m too lazy to click through, it’s Thursday.
I bet it was a proclamation making the State Song of Kansas ‘The Willie Yanker’s Polka”.

shortsshortsshorts June 26, 2008 at 5:04 pm

Count Snarkula June 26, 2008 at 5:07 pm

[re=25661]Cape Clod[/re]: Seriously, I am going to need a copy of that song. Preferable recorded by Boots Randolph. It would be the perfect recessional tune if I ever have my big gay wedding in Cali.

AxmxZ June 26, 2008 at 5:14 pm

Brownback doesn’t remember writing the article, because he “co-wrote” it with Obama like Ben Affleck ‘co-wrote’ “Good Will Hunting” with Matt Damon.

Facts are for fags!

Bipartisan fashion doesn’t sound like anything I’d want to wear.

Brownback = Brownnose.

He blows…. whichever way the wind breaks.

Mr. Herpes June 26, 2008 at 6:05 pm

I think we’ve all grown Haggard over this. I wonder if Sen. Sam has noticed yet that Larry Craig always follows him into the can? Boise’s favorite Butt Boy can’t resist giggling everytime the Senate clerk calls Brownback’s name.

qwerty42 June 26, 2008 at 6:10 pm

this looks like the new plan the Republicans are trying. The country club was not so good, so now Obama is not “bipartisan”. Or if he is, it is only for such obvious left-wing stuff such as Nuclear Non-proliferation. HFC, this is preposterous.

AnnieGetYourFun June 26, 2008 at 6:42 pm

My mind must be all gay today, because not only did I read “is my homoboy”, but I can’t stop seeing “Sam Brokeback” every time I read his name.

1ofUS June 26, 2008 at 7:17 pm

Nevermind that stint with commie Lugar and his pinko nonproliferation. Sheesh.

ColdCupofHope June 26, 2008 at 8:12 pm

[re=25649]Canmon (the Inadequate)[/re]: No, Charlie Black is totally on the Pro-Genocide lobbyist roll call. The man just can turn down good money. Well, not “good” so much, but…

masterdebater June 26, 2008 at 8:36 pm

You have to admit that it is damn funny that Brownback thinks there is someone out there that is still listening to his bullshit! Good one Sam!

wallythepug June 27, 2008 at 9:40 am

This new talking point about Hopey not working across the aisle is hysterical. Esp. when you see that GOP Senator from Oregon braggin’ on his Obama love.

gurukalehuru June 27, 2008 at 12:27 pm

@Anniegetyourfun For some reason, I always read it as Brownbutt. Any way you look at it, and there are many ways too look at it, it’s one of the greatest names in politics.

jerryw June 29, 2008 at 2:15 pm


Senator Larry Craig is said to be making plans to change the name of the
airport access road in Minnesota to the Brownback Highway.

Somehow, I don’t think that’s going to sit well with Sam Brownbrokeback,
but if there’s anyone that knows about sitting well and airports, it would
be Senator Larry Craig.

So sorry….
