John "44%" Campbell Update

It didn't take long for me to have my first big disappointment with John Campbell. It seems that Mr. Campbell is going for the establishment pick for Majority Leader in saying that he will be supporting Rep. Roy Blunt. This is not a good omen. I guess John hasn't been reading about all the stink associated with Jack Abramoff. Instead of endorsing a guy like John Shadegg who will get the party back to its roots a la 1994, he has chosen to be part of the establishment culture that gives a wink and a nod to all the illegal bribing that has been going on. This speaks volumes of the new Congressman. I wonder what his best buddy Hugh Hewitt thinks about this choice? Hugh is on record as part of the center right coalition of bloggers supporting John Shadegg. Still to come from Mr Campbell will be his support for or opposition to President Bush's guest worker program when it comes back from the Senate in the form of an amnesty bill. If he does indeed vote for amnesty, he can be sure he will have primary opposition in the form of an anti illegal immigration candidate.

    Alan, Agreed. I actually didn't expect JC to be a firebrand, but I hoped he wouldn't be a lapdog to the established leadership. Miriam

    How disappointing. Shadegg is the only decent choice - the others all seem to be corrupt, and if any of them are chosen the GOP will pay dearly in the mid-term elections. Do we never learn?
