UPDATE- Dem Parker Griffith switches to GOP. Plans to blast the Democratic health care bill as a prime reason for his decision to switch party. VIDEO

We don't know for sure yet whether this is heroic or not. He is one of the very few that has finally seen the light, but one has to wonder what took him so long? The republicans DON'T need another RINO in their party so they should take him for now and see if he is going to be a REAL REPUBLICAN. See if he will join them in stopping a disastrous health care and 'cap and trade' bill, and if not, run a true conservative against him in 2010. The VIDEO below should give the GOP hope.

This was what the OLD democrat party USED to represent. At least some of them..

We would suggest Parker Griffith beef up his security and get ready for the nasty vicious personal attacks coming from the same scumbag liberals who destroyed his party. Maybe he will make Olbermann's 'worlds worst person' tonight...

Anyone who earns that title can only be doing something right.

UPDATE- A fighter jet was ordered by Obama to stand by and wait for Rahm 'brass knuckles' Emanual. Destination- Alabama...

POLITICO has learned that Rep. Parker Griffith, a freshman Democrat from Alabama, will announce today that he’s switching parties to become a Republican.

According to two senior GOP aides familiar with the decision, the announcement will take place this afternoon in Griffith's district in northern Alabama.

Griffith’s party switch comes on the eve of a pivotal congressional health care vote and will send a jolt through a Democratic House Caucus that has already been unnerved by the recent retirements of a handful of members who, like Griffith, hail from districts that offer prime pickup opportunities for the GOP in 2010.

The switch represents a coup for the House Republican leadership, which had been courting Griffith since he publicly criticized the Democratic leadership in the wake of raucous town halls during the summer.

Griffith, who captured the seat in a close 2008 open seat contest, will become the first Republican to hold the historically Democratic, Huntsville-based district. A radiation oncologist who founded a cancer treatment center, Griffith plans to blast the Democratic health care bill as a prime reason for his decision to switch parties—and is expected to cite his medical background as his authority on the subject.

While the timing of his announcement was unexpected, Griffith’s party switch will not come as a surprise to those familiar with his voting record, which is one of the most conservative among Democrats. READ MORE... VIDEO BELOW

NOTE- You might remember the honest democrat Parker Griffith for making one of the most honest statements of the century last year about Nancy Pelosi and the progressive liberals that have hijacked and destroyed the democratic party.

Signs of Griffith’s dissatisfaction with his party began to surface publicly during the summer recess, when he received an earful of criticism from constituents.

In August — one month after Republicans picked up his former state legislative seat in a special election — Griffith told a local newspaper that he wouldn't vote for Nancy Pelosi to remain as House Speaker because she's too divisive. He joked that if she didn’t like it, he’d provide her with a gift certificate to a mental health center.

We don't think Griffith was joking at all. All you have to do is look and listen to Nancy Pelosi. Observe her constant arrogance and disrespect for the rule of law and her ignorance of the constitution she swore to uphold; she is either mentally retarded or mentally deranged.
