Corruption? Well it depends on who or what you are I guess
Posted by: McQ on Monday, April 30, 2007

Well, well, well:



"Meet the new boss, same as the old boss."

But not "corrupt" of course.

"it’s completely legal!"

Yeah, and it was before too, back when it was the mainstay of the "culture of corruption."

I like how Charlie says the "Democrats seized control of Congress..." Nancy Pelosi, armed by Armani, dashes up the Capitol Steps, squeezes off a few rounds and waves her supporters onward. Taking complete control of the Rotunda, she demands the gavel from Denny Hastert, who outflanked and outgunned, hands it to her and goes for a Big Mac.

As heavily armed as the Republicans are, you would have thought they would have at least gone down firing. Alas, a mere whimper and not a shot fired!

When those cars were entering that "country estate" I couldn’t help but think of the good old days, when the Nomenklatura partied at their dachas outside Moskva, access controled by the men in overcoats. At least here the cars are nicer than those old Zils.

"As heavily armed as the Republicans are, you would have thought they would have at least gone down firing. Alas, a mere whimper and not a shot fired"

They were probably relieved to have all that responsibility taken from them. They can now sink back into that comfortable minority role that they know so well.

I have to say, ABC News has been much better in the past couple years showing both sides of a story. They even have someone that I consider downright conservative — Jan Crawford Greenberg — as their legal correspondent.

The Democrats are going to wish they’d never got the privilege of power... the media feels compelled to speak truth to power. The Democrats probably thought it was just necessary that everyone like them.

Cute though, how some people just can’t be ethical on their own initiative without having a law passed to control their behavior.

And if they’re passing the law to control their own behavior....how likely is it do you think that they’re REALLY going to put teeth in it?

This kind of “pay for play” politics has been going on since the founding of the country. Why should anybody expect change. If I had a dollar for every time someone proposed reform’ I would be rich today. The answer is KISS, Keep it Simple Stupid. Let politicians take money from anybody in any amount. The catch? They have to report it to the public. We have the best politicians money can buy. At least this way we know who owns who.

What does Darrell Issa paying for his own ticket to a Who concert have to do with a story about how the Democrats are collecting money from lobbyists despite their campaign against the alleged "culture of corruption" under the Republican leadership. They had to interject a complete non-sequitur about a Republican because they just can’t bring themselves to fully criticize the Democrats.

Getting a ticket as a gift is a whole lot less than they imply that he did.

Isn’t scalping illegal? Or is it just considered rude?

Umm… Mr. Anonymous, I think you have horsesh*t on your shoes.

How the hell is the story about Darrell Issa selling his concert tickets to lobbyists for ten times the going rate a non-sequitur to the story about Democrats receiving money from lobbyists?
You’re not seriously contending that the Issa snow job was on the up and up, are you?

I think it is you that has to interject a complete non-sequitur about the story because you can’t bring yourself to fully mollify your anger towards the MSM.

ABC News did a good service, man.

Relax.
