GOP watch: Losing ugly?

Per Politico, "The only thing worse than winning ugly is losing uglier. The Democrats' ungainly march toward a victory on health care reform Sunday night provoked a graceless response from angry House Republicans, who shouted insults across the chamber, encouraged outbursts from the galleries, brandished 'Kill the bill' placards from the Speaker's Balcony and, apparently, left veiled threats of electoral retribution on the benches of undecided Democrats. And that all came before Texas Republican Rep. Randy Neugebauer shouted 'baby killer!' as anti-abortion Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) spoke on the House floor."

Jim Clyburn says Randy Neugebauer should apologize on the House floor for his "baby killer" outburst.

'Satisfied with the tone of the debate? Rep. Randy "Neugebauer's outburst reminded many of when Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) shouted, 'You lie!' at President Barack Obama during a joint address to Congress on healthcare last September," The Hill writes. "In the days following, Wilson's website crashed as it overloaded with correspondence and he raised thousands of dollars from supporters. On Monday, parts of Neugebauer's website were also not loading, perhaps because they were overloading with traffic.
 
Minority Leader John Boehner's (R-Ohio) office did not comment on Neugebauer's remarks, but a spokesman on Monday said Boehner was pleased with his conference's conduct. 'My impression is that he was satisfied with the tone of the debate, which focused on the serious factual arguments against the Democrats' job-killing government takeover bill,' said Michael Steel, a spokesman for Boehner."

Jim DeMint's Senate Conservatives Fund PAC already has a repeal pledge Web site. It names conservative candidates who have pledged to fight to repeal "ObamaCare" (and raises money).
