Now he’s opening the closet (closet, closet, closet)

The wonderful folks at the Courage Campaign are trying to, ahem, expose Rep. David Dreier (R-Closet) and his abject and unwavering fealty to GWBush:

And George W. Bush's rubber stamp is...

Congressman David Dreier.

Help us expose David Dreier's rubber-stamp record. Watch our "Bush Rubber Stamp" ad and contribute to get it up on the air in the 26th congressional district.

Not a lot of people know it, but Congressman David Dreier has voted with George W. Bush approximately 93.6% of the time. On the most important issues of our time, he has been a rubber stamp for the Bush Administration, voting for Dick Cheney's energy bill, Bush's war in Iraq and, inexplicably, against education benefits for the soldiers he sent to fight in it.

No matter where you live in California -- and no matter whether or not you live in his district -- you have the power to hold David Dreier accountable today. That's why we're launching a provocative new TV ad today to get the truth out to as many people as possible.

We have spent a lot of time in this Congressman's district, conducting focus groups and constituent research to understand how citizens view him. The results? Once people find out about their Congressman's consistent, deep support for President Bush, their opinion of him changes significantly.

Of course, they'd like a contribution for their TV ad campaign to help yank this guy out of the closet district he's held since 1981.

Here's a preview of their great new web site: BushRubberStamp.com:
You may be surprised to know that -- according to Congressional Quarterly -- from 2001 to 2007 David Dreier voted with George W. Bush's agenda approximately 93.6% of the time. Not only is this out of step with the values of California's 26th Congressional District, but it is completely contrary to the "moderate, independent" image that Dreier has slickly crafted for the last 28 years.

Go here to see Dreier's awful record.
