Harrigan: Republicans are all the same

My what a surprise that a Republican like Mike Sigman, “Gardner’s snit is now hurting Republicans” (Herald, Feb. 26), would want to recall the senator who he probably argued and voted for because he’s not doing exactly what Mr. Sigman thinks he should do.

The fact that it’s over a state’s right to decide on an issue like marijuana makes it all the richer. But that’s what Republicans think and do; as long as things are going their way they don’t care what rules or norms are ignored.

But when things are not to their liking, they want to take their marbles and go home.

To hell with elections, even if your candidate wins! If he or she crosses you and your “flippy-floppy Fox News ideas” then dump them and recall them.

Who needs Democrats, Mr. Sigman? Apparently not you any more, you have your own Republicans to hate and disparage now.
