Drudge right now is featuring this marvelous picture of the Clintons with indicted Chicago real estate developer Tony Rezko. Hillary attempted to lambast Barack Obama regarding Rezko, saying “I was fighting against those [Reagan] ideas when you were practicing law and representing your contributor, Rezko, in his slum landlord business in inner city Chicago.”
As for this rather embarrassing picture of not one, but both Clintons with this ‘slumlord’, Hillary said “I probably have taken hundreds of thousands of pictures. I don’t know the man. I wouldn’t know him if he walked in the door.”
Maybe she would recognize him if he had fistfuls of cash. Are we to believe that Rezko got the honor of a double Clinton portrait entirely gratis?p
Now pause for a moment and picture this scenario:
Hillary as President and Bill in the Senate, having been named by Elliot Spitzer to occupy Hillary’s vacated seat for New York; or Obama as President, with either administration naming And John Edwards as Attorney General.
I fervently hope the Republicans get their acts together.
Andrew Sullivan is 100% right when he writes about The Corruption Of Feminism:
Wow. A proud defense of nepotism over feminism. Or rather, as is the Clintons’ wont, a total conflation of feminism with nepotism. I remember similar Clintonian feminists in the 1990s trashing, smearing and sliming women who dared to complain about the sexual harassment and abuse of women that Bill Clinton – with his wife’s full knowledge – engaged in for years. This couple really do corrupt everything they touch.
I’ve been mentioning this, too.
Ed explains Why pork matters.
The main points are:
1. Because politicians use earmarks to earn credits with political supporters,
Either they’re currying favor with state and local officials back home to solidify their own power base, or they’re cutting sweetheart deals with contributors to their campaigns.
2. Pork reduces the efficiencies of competitive bidding, resulting in poorer quality products at an inflated price, perpetuating government inefficiency.
3. It entrenches the power of corrupt politicians.
4. It perverts self-government.
Go read the whole thing.
