    "Since 1980, the Republican Party has used the issue of family values to attract socially conservative voters."

    We're talking about a bunch of guys going to a strip club here. It's not like they got busted with a dead hooker in the trunk of their car.
    Very impressive analysis, I'm sure that those donating to the family values party will have no problem with their money being spent on a bondage themed strip club.

    Too bad you're not calling for the resignation of the all the tax cheats working for Obama. As well you should.

    But anyway, the staffers should be fired for misusing money.

    Now this is a funny story. And I'm not trying to imply any points about the GOP, this is just funny.
    The RNC should never have reimbursed the individual for such an expense. It was non-campaign related. It had nothing to do with politics.

    The RNC should be focused on political activities, not individuals' entertainment. If the people involved wanted to attend that club or any other entertainment venue, they should have paid out of their own pockets. That the reimbursement request was not immediately rejected suggests a breakdown or weakness in the RNC's financial controls.

    Prime example of a primary difference between the two parties.

    Republicans get rid of their bad apples.

    Liberals champion their bad apples, re-elect them, and use the race card or any baiting measure available against any critics of them.

    Maybe they didn't understand what they were reimbursing. You don't think the guy put lap dance on his voucher do you?

    The Democrats run the worst of their lot for high level leadership positions.

    I didn't give an analysis. I just made a statement in response to your idiotic insinuation that Republicans are, by default, family values supporters.

    OK, now take a break from fluffing that straw man and get back to the point. I certainly don't have a problem with that insignificant amount being spent at a strip club and I am sure there are many Republicans like myself who don't either.

    It's simplistic but that doesn't make it untrue.

    That's why I said "shallow and lazy" rather than "false".
