What Fresh Hell Is This?

September 21, 2007

Lib'rul Media? Yea, Right.

Here's something to chew over. It was posted at TalkingPointsMemo.

Last night, news broke that the FBI had been taping phone calls placed to the senior Republican in the United States Senate as part of a bribery investigation stretching back more than a year. In fact, the man alleged to have bribed the senator is cooperating with investigators, and the calls recorded included some he placed at the FBI's behest.

The Washington Post, always eager to cover political stories of national import, ran the news on page A10. Most papers gave it similar prominence, if they ran the item it at all.

Contrast that to the (admittedly luried) tale of Norman Hsu, fronted by papers around the nation. That was a case of a major donor to Democratic figures who turned out (unbeknownst to the politicians to whom he donated) to be a crook and a fraud. That's big news. But when a businessman who is a major donor to Republican politicians turns out to be a crook and a fraud, and some of the nation's senior legislators are revealed to have knowingly accepted his bribes and funneled him earmarks in return, it's hardly worth mentioning.

Where's the outrage?

John K. says: Ask Gov. Ed Rendell. Besides Sen. Stevens will probably just donate the funds to charity. LOL LOL LOL He will ask Sen. Clinton and Gov. Rendell for some recommended charities.

John K: Has there been testimony under oath that Gov Rendell or Senator Clinton have ACCEPTED A BRIBE?


Has there been for Senator Stevens?


So what does that do to your argument?

I'd say it trashes it.

John K. says: Has there been testimony? Not yet there hasn't. But we can impeach and investigate people also. Remember when we impeached, we won.

Ahhh, Weedwhacker, you much humor! No sense, much humor! The Reps attempted to impeach twice for craven political reasons both times. Lost, both times.

Bwahahahahaha! ROFL! And in the immortal words of John K, LOL LOL

Joh K. says: Oops, looks like the young democrats did not come thru. Norman Hsu has had his bail denied. You lose. By the way, State Sen Piccola is hiring a private investigator to take a look at Gov. Rendell. Let's hear it lefties, its not fair. They are investigaing us. Make it go away. LOL LOL wayyyyyy to easy. Make it harder lefties.

You forgot the cardinal rule of the past 20+ years: IOKIYAR. It's OK If You're A Republican. Those sacks of shit can get away with anything, as far as the media and any governmental oversight groups are concerned -- but let a Democrat sneeze the wrong way, and it's scandal and front page news. Democrats are traitors trying to bring down this country and introduce Islamic rule, while Republicans are staunch defenders of the Constitution, family values and American principles-- no matter how corrupt or hypocritical they might seem to be while doing it.

Didn't you get the memo?!?

John K. says: Remember left wing kooks, we own the most powerful private army in the world, Blackwater. Who, by the way, are keeping the peace in New Orleans. We don't need to use the military to hold a coup. We got the best trained mercenaries in the world. LOL LOL LOL Another one of my pithy zingers designed to irritate the left and cause them to lose sleep trying to form a reply. LMAO

Hey John, Did you have to hire a private army because the US Army and Marines weren't sending home enough bodies to satisfy your blood lust?

Tell your private army to come and get me, if they can find me in Italy. I'm sure Dick and Dubya can find some way to steal more of your money while they're looking for me. LOL LOL LMAO ROFL

If they can't find me here in Europe, they can come after me when I get back to the 'Burgh. I'll have all my pea shooters loaded to fight them off. I hope I don't sting any of them too badly. LOL LOL LMAO ROFL

John K., could you please just admit that your a fascist? America is not, never has been, and hopefully someday again, will not be about organizations like Blackwater.

You think private armies are cool? That it's funny to make jokes about mercenaries, who's actions have resulted in the deaths of innocent Iraqi's?

You're not an American, John. You think you are, but you're not. Your idealogy is anathema to the ideals and principles of this country and the Founding Fathers.

Your comments aren't "pithy zingers." They're evidence of a faux patriot, someone who doesn't know shit about this country.

You're American in name only.
