Darin LaHood: I've Been Totes Critical of the DC Establishment, Particularly At Their $1,000 Per Plate Fundraiser They Threw In My Honor

Well, here's a guy who says all the things he's been instructed to say. Sounds like the prototypical GOP Congressman to me.

David Steinberg, who is a warrior in the Breitbartian sense, writes:

.Aided by the national GOP, the Illinois' GOP's behind-the-scenes behavior -- both before and after the [Aaron Shock] resignation -- show a party that isn't so much following its obligation to police itself as much as one that realized Schock was quite terrible at dodging those external and internal controls. Leadership settled on Darin LaHood as a suitable replacement, and coached him towards their spineless, voter-disdaining strategy of publicly condemning leadership in preparation for joining it.

Last night, Darin LaHood had a first debate with Mike Flynn. Accept the term "debate" in its loosest definition. LaHood originally rejected any such forum, and has been self-parodically urging the district to "Vote Early" in the already-open early balloting, as if doing so could possibly be of any benefit to the voter, the democratic process, or to anyone but the candidate who fears he might later slip up or be further vetted....

Further, LaHood insisted that the debate rules only allow each answer to run for 90 seconds, and that the candidates be barred from ...speaking to each other. Namely, the requests of a self-assured public servant who intends to be accessible.

During the debate, in response to a question regarding the candidates’ opinions of House GOP leadership, LaHood said the following:

I have been very critical of the Republicans in Washington.

This was, of course, not news to House GOP leadership in Washington.

Because about five weeks ago, Darin LaHood flew from Peoria to Washington for a one-hour cocktail event at 27 D Street, SE, at which he was very critical of GOP House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and GOP House Speaker John Boehner, both of whom attended the cocktail event, having agreed beforehand to listen to his impending critique and perhaps sponsor it and deem it worth several thousand dollars per head VOTE EARLY VOTE DARIN:

Interestingly, Darin LaHood’s first major campaign funding came from the Republican Main Street Partnership, an organization founded by former GOP congressman and Boehner ally Steve LaTourette as a vehicle for supporting centrist, establishment Republicans and advising them on how to defeat challenges from the right.

Check their list of members and review those members' prior campaigns: so far, Republican Main Street Partnership’s advice has generally proven to have been "pretend you oppose groups like Republican Main Street Partnership."

Princeton can use a man like Joel David Steinberg.

Incomplete top ten follows. Incomplete, because, well, I can't complete it. Usually I would hold off on this sort of thing, but then I thought, the theme of this campaign is dialogue and inclusion; why not throw this out there for you to complete?

I have a start; I will take the best suggestions and use them to complete the Top Ten.

Top Ten Criticisms Darin LaHood Leveled At The GOP Leadership While He Was Feting Them

10. No thank you, I've had so many Lobster Dumplings already I'm pissing drawn butter

9. John Boehner, you cannot tempt me with your duck a l'orange. Oh, I'll eat your damn duck all right -- but you keep the l'orange for yourself, Mister Man.

8. While we sit here in luxury eating a feastpaid for by lobbyists, we should bow our heads and give a thought to the common people whose tax dollars pay for all this bounty (Giggle) Got ya. How many of you did I get with that? I see Steve Scalise's hand up. You're too easy, Stevey. (fishhook finger in mouth)

7. The sushi served on the naked model of an East European child model was... I don't want to say subpar, but. Yeah. I'll go that far: Subpar. At best.


8. This ice-sculpture fountain of lobbyist money and insider stock tips isn't quite as grand as the one they have at the Obamas' Yuletime Parties

7. I didn't come to Washington to snack on beef-- oh!, this is Waygu? Actually I did come here for this

6. This is just like how my Dad, Obama Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, said... ( I have no joke, just the notion that this should be part of the set-up)
