Parker Griffith-ing

Liar… thief…

Those terms just seem to gravitate toward AL 5th Congressional District Rep. Parker Griffith, MD (R) who recently, halfway through his first two-year term,  jumped Democratic ship for the Republican party.

Perhaps it’s not as much his secretive “I’m going to switch parties half-way in my first two-year term,” attitude that bothers people as much as it is his now-broken promises – essentially lies – such as the one to return campaign contributions to disgruntled donors.

I suppose a good analogy would be his sex change. Griffith married a woman, representing himself to be a man. After the birth and rearing of their children (halfway through his life), he announces to his wife and family he’s a woman and will be having a sex change – which in turn, of course, would make her a lesbian – which she is not – and consequently call into question the validity of their marriage.

In that light, two other words seem apropos for Griffith – mentally defective.

Family’s more strident words might include traitor… asshole.

Of course, ultimately, the one to be pitied is Griffith, and secondarily the people he injured (his family representing his constituency) along his selfish and misguided way. And in this case, divorce would only add insult to injury. What is genuinely needed is intensive psychotherapy for Griffith.

North Alabama’s 5th Congressional Representative, Parker Griffith, MD, continues damaging his constituency.

News reports shortly after his decision to switch rather than fight, indicated that his staff resigned.

Parker Griff-switch – without consulting anyone – up and decided that he needed to be a Republican, instead of a Democrat, the party under which he was elected to office.

With one year remaining in his first – and likely only – two year term, his decision to switch to the Republican party rather than fight for his constituents as the Democratic party member for he was elected will likely be damaging to North Alabamians for years to come. It would be no different if he were to have switched from the Republican to Democratic party.

How ineffective… er, effective can a congressman be without a staff?

Oh… I forgot.

That’s Parker Griff-switch, MD.
