As opposed to varments, blackguards, scoundrels and ne'er-do-wells!

Apparently the 19th century robber barons of the GOP are adopting the language of the time as well -- some heavy projection too.
Republicans such as Senator Tom Coburn have argued that the disability program is being “gamed” by “scalawags,” and that a third of claims are bogus, putting the program in financial trouble. Republicans may use the coming hearing to argue for benefits cuts.

Oh the purposeful naivete is rich.

Lot of people riding around on disability-paid Hoverounds who vote for the GOP.

You'd think that would make a difference, but, hell, by now, they know that the rubes will vote against their best interests, so they're safe in calling a bunch of their constituents deadbeats.

The US of A is grand sideshow, ain't it?
