Tom DeLay used to be my congressman. Now I have Pete Olson, Phil Gramm’s mini-me. When Phil Gramm gets drunk, Pete Olson falls down. Those two are tighter than skin on a sausage.
We used to say, “Well, it couldn’t be worse than Tom DeLay.” We were wrong.
Pete has never had honest work. He’s been on a government paycheck all his life. He was in the Navy and then he went to work for Gramm and hung around congress and now he’s a congressidiot. No, seriously, he ain’t real bright. He is however, hyperactive and talks so fast that you have to listen real quick or he’s always three sentences ahead of you.
True story – last week he called me and asked me to join in a telephone townhall he was having. I said, Okay, I’ll try this stuff. At first, I though he was drunk because he was slurring his words and gasping for breath. I finally got the idea that he was just talking too fast for me to follow him. My first hint was when my phone caught on fire.
His entire life he’s been on governmental socialize medicine. You need to remember that because it becomes important later on.
Anyway, and there is a point to this that I’ll get to eventually, Pete put out some campaign literature blasting the AARP. I need to be honest and tell you that I am a 10 year member of AARP and I have their supplemental insurance for my Medicare. I have been very happy with them and I even enjoy the little magazine they send me.
Pete Olson is not so happy with AARP. He put a picture on his literature of President Obama wearing an AARP button, which means that now the AARP has cooties.
Pete declares that the AARP “is nothing but a shill organization for the radical left.” I did not know that. And apparently neither did President Yvonne Louviere and Vice President Leon Anhaiser of the Sugar Land branch of AARP. They wrote Pete a scathing letter that told him in no uncertain terms that they disagree with him. Strongly disagree. They have done many service projects and add …
We sponsor local candidate forums each year and allow both Republican and Democrat candidates the opportunity to speak to our membership. We are an informed and politically diverse organization.
Now here’s where I tell you that I searched the voting records of Yvonne Louviere (85 years old) and Leon Anhaiser (75 years old) and they have both voted in the Republican primary every election since 1992, which is as far back as I checked. That’s Republican enough in my book. They asked Pete Olson for a retraction.
Instead, they got this:
Asked to clarify his position regarding AARP, Olson said, “While I am appreciative of the local support and volunteerism that the Sugar Land AARP chapter offers our community, it does not change the fact that at the national level the AARP is a whole-owned subsidiary of the Democrat party and complicit in the Obama Administration’s efforts to weaken our freedoms, vastly expand government control over our lives, and force a liberal-extremist world view on the people of Texas. If the local chapter feels they need to take issue with this, they should start by internally working to change the AARP back to a service organization instead of an arm of the Democrat party.”
Oh Sweet Lord of Delusion, he doubled down and called these old people in tennis shoes patsies of the “Democrat” party.
Well, if the AARP is what Democrats want, then maybe Yvonne and Leon might want to come on over. Yvonne and Leon, we don’t think you’re anybody’s fool. Pete does.
Pete Olson is having a town hall at Clements High School in Sugar Land on Tuesday night at 6:30. You have to submit your questions in writing. The last Olson townhall we went to, a guy threatened to punch Bubba in the nose. Bubba laughed at him. The police had to escort him out while while Bubba continued to grin.
Bubba can’t wait to go again.
