I don't know what definition of 'Republican' Marsha Blackburn is reading, but could she be any more wrong with her Christmas mess of a message?

God Bless Us Everyone
As the Holiday season is upon us, I’m reminded of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” and I have to say that the House is showing a great deal of similarities these days. The chamber is like Ebenezer Scrooge’s counting house on Christmas Eve. Scrooge-like liberals still relish denying coal to the everyday “Bob Cratchit” Americans who just want a little warmth this season. I suspect my liberal colleagues are stretching out the days in Washington because they dread a visit from three Christmas Ghosts once they are alone in the darkened House Chamber.
The Ghost of Christmas Past would take them through their many errors, from Cap and Trade, through Health Care, and on to tax increases. With each move, they’d watch their once jovial colleagues become more insular and out of touch with the American People.
The Ghost of Christmas Present would be no more comforting. They’d watch themselves argue on the Floor endlessly about amnesty for illegals, tax increases for small business, and big government management of everything from the internet to school lunches- all while incoming freshmen like Stephen Fincher, Diane Black, Chuck Fleishman, and Scott DeJarlais deck the halls of their new Congressional Offices and looking forward to a productive new year.
Finally, they must particularly dread the moment when the Ghost of Christmas Future glides into the Chamber to show them what will happen if they don’t change their ways….
For my part, I am looking forward to throwing open the windows on a sunny Christmas Morning. There may be a few more cold and frustrating days between now and Christmas. Too many of them will be spent here in Washington watching Scrooge count his coins and hoard his coal- but Christmas always comes; a new year always follows; and better days are ahead.
God Bless Us Every One
I don't even want to critique this nonsense. She embarasses herself enough just by making it public.
