I should say it up front, they are heroes for the Republicans Party only and not the public in general. They have few fans.
Sarah Palin: In 2008 a relative unknown was thrust on the national stage by John McCain as Veep candidate and saviour of McCain's faltering campaign. She was supposed to be a champion of conservative causes and family values. Family values included no pre-marital sex. Okay, it turned her teenage daughter, who was under 18 years old at the time, was pregnant. So much for no pre-marital sex and family values. When they could not hide her pregnancy she was marched onto the national stage along with her hubby-to-be Levi Johnston. She could not be much of a saviour for McCain. Then her grandson was born but the umbilical cord to Levi Johnston was cut.
More recently Sarah Palin has resigned as Governor of Alaska. Some say because she can make more money by writing a book, speaking engagements, etc. Oh well, she is true to conservative values at least. Money takes precedence over everything else.
Joe the Plumber: Joe the Plumber, Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, was another one who was thrust on the national scene by the desperate John McCain. He became a symbol of conservative values as he called Obama a socialist. More recently, John McCain's daughter Meghan McCain has called Joe the Plumber "Dumb Ass". Smart woman, she said it as it is. It turned out that Joe the Plumber was not much of a plumber. He just wants play in sewers. Okay he can join the next hero in that play.
G. Gordon Liddy: Remember him. He had a "plumbing" company of his own, as he was chief operative for the White House Plumbers whose main job was to dig dirt on Democrats. He likes to play in the sewers too as does Joe the Plumber. Maybe it should be a new sport for the Olympics. If I am not mistaken, he is a convicted felon. He served 4 years for his part in the Watergate fiasco which brought down the Nixon administration.
More recently, he has become a champion for the birther conspiracy that Barack Obama is not an American. He says he has a sworn statement from Obama's Step-Grandmother that he was born in Kenya. Oh God, a guy from Kenya with the name of Barack Hussein Obama is occupying the White House and taking the rest of the U.S hostage. How frightening. Now Gordon Liddy is another hero for current Republicans as Rush Limbaugh has joined the fray. What a bunch of loonies.

Sgt. Crowley: He is the latest entry for Republican heroes. He's from Cambridge, Mass. Sgt. Creepy Crowley is the one who arrested "unruly" Professor Gates in his house. "Unruly"? Sounds like a 6 year old who talks too loud and was called into the principal's office. He responded to the call that someone was breaking into Professor Gates' house. When Creepy Crowley got there Professor Gates showed him a Harvard ID and driver's licence but that was not enough for Creepy Crowley and he arrested the Professor anyway for unruly behaviour. Professor Gates was not threatening or dangerous to anyone but sounded "unruly" to Creepy Crowley.
Now there are claims that Creepy Crowley teaches "racial profiling". He must be teaching how to do the racial profiling. If he is, then his students must excel him. This is a new generation of Republicans for you. Rush Limbaugh is his fan already and that is why I have included Creepy Crowley here.
The right thing for Cambridge to do is dump this guy. Obama called the police stupid for having arrested the professor after he provided his ID. I think Obama was very polite. Crowley is a dumb ass and one can use stronger words but I will refrain.
So these are the current heroes of Republican Party of the United States of America. God bless America, as it does need it.Recommend this post
