Dem Congressman: I’ll Sell My Soul — But Only to Nancy Pelosi, Not the Kochs | National Review Online

Democratic congressman Nick Rahall told a GOP tracker on Tuesday that he would rather sell his soul to House minority leader Nancy Pelosi than “selling it to the Koch brothers!”

Several weeks ago, when Pelosi promised him more campaign money and convinced him to stay in the race, Rahall was preparing for retirement. He is a top GOP target in the 2014 election.

The GOP tracker asked Rahall how it felt ”to sell your soul to Nancy Pelosi,” and the congressman initially ignored his comment, calling him “quite the jokester.” After a pregnant pause, Rahall quipped: “Better than selling it to the Koch brothers!”

Izzat so?  Well, take a look at who Nick the Slick has been selling his soul – and his votes – to in the real world:

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
