Republican City Councilman Andy Dulin left a sour taste in our mouths when he staunchly opposed the same-sex benefits package the council considered passing before Amendment One. But you can hardly blame him; he was just sticking to his party's line. "I'm a no vote, and have been for the last seven years," Dulin told the Charlotte Observer. So why then was he one of the few GOP congressional candidates to not sign a no-tax-increase pledge? His goofy attitude reminds us too much of George W.'s, and his cafeteria Republicanism makes his party look bad.
