K Street puts the KY Jelly type lubrication in the gears of public policy down Washington way. And in a predictable turn around in a phony Obama campaign issue directed at “the culture of Republican corruption” the Obama Nation has begun serious deals with the dreaded lobbyists they accused the other party of being slaves to. (They are all Democrat lobbyists now.)
Well isn’t that the way the politics of CHANGE work?
It is not bad enough there is a Democrat culture of being arrested and indicted as opposed to charged with numerous limp accusations of ethics violations such as Governor Sarah Palin recently dispatched with a flick of her wrist. No, it takes buses to haul indicted Democrats away in our fine, solidly, and long time Democrat states and cities.
Will the indictment and arrest of machine Democrats in various cities and states harm their support from rank and file Dems? No it will not. Democrat voters will return a crook over and over again to public office. You can even drown a call girl and become a saint.
But boy does it put a bump in the brown envelope road having insiders dragged off the scene for a short stint on the concertina wire golf course. At least taxpayers have THAT going for them.
Now that Obama has let loose his Democrat pals on K Street in Washington again how long will it be until the first scandal is lightly brushed aside by the more than willing AP?
Can Obama and the left run another campaign based on “cleaning up Washington?”
Just last November 8, 2008 Nancy Pelosi belted out this tune:
"The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history,"
My guess is all you need is a $10.00 stop watch to count down the minutes until Dodd, Rangel, Frank, and the rest of the Democrat crooks plop down in front of some FBI camera stuffed in a potted plant and work another deal.
CHANGE you can believe in.
