Dan Benishek: the alternative to Bart Sell-out Stupak

posted at 7:19 pm on March 21, 2010 by

As everyone knows by now, Bart Stupak has sold out on Obamacare. No one should be surprised, really — because as Laura at Ace of Spades points out, one must have principles to begin with in order to stand on them. It turns out, he admitted a year ago that he probably was going to vote for it. Joke’s on us for actually thinking he wouldn’t cave, huh? He caved for absolutely nothing except a meaningless piece of paper that Obama waved in his face, an executive order that even Democrats understand is meaningless. Is he stupid, or was he just lying all along? Did Pelosi finally get to him, or was he just holding out for a sweeter deal? There have been rumors floating around that he took an $800k bribe. Is it true?

Whatever his reason were, Stupak will be eaten alive this November. Fortunately, we have an excellent alternative to Stupak — a pro-life conservative surgeon named Dan Benishek. In one day, over joined his Facebook page. Donations have allegedly already begun to pour in, which sounds like a mighty good idea to me.

Help bring Stupak down. Donate to Dan Benishek.

(And, as Jim Hoft points out, it sure does look like he could use some technical assistance. Hope someone gives him a hand.)

When you are whoring out your name, reputation, and your, ahem, “honor” your should never do so cheaply. Stupak, is apparently cheap.
