Are All Republicans Filthy Pigs?

Apparently, squalid living conditions and destruction of property is some sort of calling card and recurring theme for the GOP.

California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher’s former abode is a very special place.

Turning a 6,300 square-foot, $1 million property into a dump couldn’t have been easy.

Built in 1948, the two-story, Orange Avenue home had been updated in recent years for comfort and style. The carpeting was new, appliances worked and walls were spotless. Thriving flowers, plants and grass adorned the idyllic back yard less than 4 miles from the Pacific Ocean.

When he moved out in August 2012, Rohrabacher left behind a shockingly horrific pigsty, a dump worse than a college fraternity house of unhygienic slobs unfamiliar with the most basic tools of cleaning.

[...]

Massive black stains and muck covered the carpet throughout the home. Sticky grime encased damaged, rusted appliances. Denied water, once-thriving outside plants and grass dried up and died. Blinds were cracked. Black dirt ruined the appearance of once-sparkling tile floors. Walls inexplicably contained odd holes, nail polish, wax and some smelly substance that may have been feces.

Every toilet seat in the house was broken. The ceilings showed smoke damage. Light switches had been cracked. Clumps of hair and remnants of what may have been balloons or some other rubbery material clogged sinks. Cracks scarred doors. Thick, solidified grease rendered the air-suction vent above the kitchen stove useless. Bathroom towel bars were missing, and vanities suffered water damage.

[...]

Paid invoices show the widespread damage totaled more than $25,800, according to records reviewed by the Weekly.

Rep. Rohrabacher responded to the claims by alleging that he’s the victim in all this and is currently suing the owners of the home until they go broke. Of course he is.

    The most telling part of the story isn’t that Dana Rohrabacher and his family are apparently—to borrow a phrase from Arthur Dent—half-crazed Visigoths. It’s not that Rohrabacher is suing the owner because his security deposit wasn’t refunded in a timely manner. It’s not even that Rohrabacher’s lawyer has tried to bury the owner’s lawyer in frivolous paper.

    No, the most telling part of the story is that Rohrabacher’s people have allegedly threatened to get the Orange County DA to open a criminal probe of the owner.

    It takes real talent and commitment to be that big a dick.

      I’ll tell ya who needs a probe – Rohrabacher. With a hot lead enema.

        I’d settle for him getting voted out of office. He and “B-1 Bob” Dornan could spend their days sitting on the front porch at the Old Righties’ Home, grousing about how their seats got stolen from them by all those people who somehow got the notion that they could vote.

    Yet another sociopath out of the many who call themselves republicans. What a fucking prick.

      I love how you say “sociopath.” :)

        well, Mike, they’re damn near all sociopaths! :)

    I saw the title, and without even reading the article, my mind went, “yeah–they are all pigs.”

    Kinda sums up the Republican party in a metaphor. Completely trash the place, then blame the people taking over.

  • Victor_the_Crab

    This perfectly describes the Republican party as a metaphor. Completely trash the place, then blame the people taking over the property for causing the mess.

    Disgusting but the perfect metaphor for the GOPs attitude toward most of the population of the US in particular and the environment in general.

    Which, of course, won’t keep a certain percentage of suckers with incomes under 7 figures from voting for them.
