Who’s a Bigger Crook? Christine O’Donnell or Your Typical Senator?

Posted by PITHOCRATES - September 22nd, 2010

Christine O’Donnell, Republican candidate for the Joe Biden’s Senate seat in Delaware, is apparently a crook.  Or so says Melanie Sloan, executive director of the nonpartisan Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).  According to Sloan she embezzled campaign funds and evaded taxes.  Like Timmy Giethner.  Charlie Rangel.  And [enter any Democrat or RINO here].  Oh my.

Sloan said, “…Republicans and Democrats don’t agree on much these days, but both sides should agree on one point: Thieves belong in jail, not the United States Senate.”  (See O’Donnell embezzlement accusation called ‘frivolous’ on the Washington Times website).   She’s a little late.  The Senate is a den of thieves.  If O’Donnell is a crook, she’ll fit right in.  If not, maybe she can make a difference.  Make the business of the Senate about the people and not the Senators’ pockets.

Yes, embezzlement is bad.  But the rape and pillage of a nation is a tad bit worse.  And by a ‘tad’ I mean whole frickin’ lot.

Perhaps I’m not being fair.  I mean, both congressional chambers are corrupt.  It was their legislation, after all, that caused the current recession/depression.  The subprime mortgage crisis.  Putting people into houses who had no chance in hell of paying off their mortgages.  The whole point of a subprime mortgage was to help unqualified people get qualified for a mortgage.  Why?  The government was reviewing their books.  And if they didn’t like what they saw, well, they made it known.  And, of course, any deficiency in minority approvals guaranteed a visit from Jesse Jackson or some other fair housing advocate.  The message was clear.  Approve.  Or else.  And they did. Then all those ARM interest rates reset.  And, well, you know the rest of the story.

It’s kind of funny.  Not in a ‘ha ha’ kind of way but more of a tragic, ironic way.  By trying to put more people into houses we may end up making more people homeless.  Which sometimes happens when a long-ass recession turns into depression.  Funny.  That wacky government.

I don’t know much about Christine O’Donnell.  But she has an ‘R’ next to her name.  And if we get enough ‘R’s in the Senate perhaps we’ll be able to return to the good old days.  When gridlock ruled.  Remember those days?  Good times.  One thing you can say about gridlock.  It’ll be a whole lot harder to create another subprime mortgage crisis if the government can’t conspire against the people.

It’s hard to take an attack on a Republican serious anymore.  With the biased media and their talking points, the Hollywood elite and the college professors corrupting our youth, it’s worse than the fable of the boy who cried wolf.  After awhile you just lose credibility.  When you know what they will say before they say it, what they say just doesn’t matter anymore.  We get it.  Republican bad.  Why?  Because they’re Republican.  ‘Nuff said.

I don’t know about you, but that’s just a weak argument.
