Nancy Pelosi's Congress: A Landfill of Corruption
'Nother Bulletin: Dennis Kucinich, the Ohio Democratic congressman and former mayor of Cleveland, one of the most corrupt cities since Sodom and Gomorrah threw in the towel, has announced he is running once again for President of these United States. Don't be surprised if his slogan is something like: "America: The Focus of Evil in the Modern World."
Bulletin: Barack Obama's middle name is "Hussein," which may be helpful with the Muslim vote. There's no truth to the rumor that his original first name began with an S.
Of course, Alcee Hastings, impeached and convicted for bribery as a federal judge in 1989, is still stewing over Nancy Pelosi's choosing the intellectually challenged Silvestre Reyes as head of the House Intelligence Committee. Morally challenged or intellectually challenged -- how is Nancy to choose?
UPDATE ON SILVERSTRE REYES: A writer for Congressional Quarterly recently asked Silverstre Reyes whether Al Qaeda was primarily a Sunni or a Shiite organization. Reyes guessed wrongly and said it was mainly Shiite. Also, he didn't seem to know exactly what Hezbollah, now trying to bring down the elected government of Lebanon, was.
It makes you wonder exactly what Reyes reads in his off-hours, or even what hears when people testify to the Intelligence Committee about the nature of groups like Al Qaeda and Hezbollah.
There should be no place in Congress for a dimwit like Silvestre Reyes, but here he is heading a vital congressional committee. The country should benefit greatly from his consultations with fellow committee member Alcee Hastings.
John Murtha? Well, his lobbyist brother and lobbyist former staff members have continued to grow rapidly in net worth, and they and their clients continue to fill Murtha's campaign coffers. When he's led off some glorious day in leg irons, he can't say I didn't warn him.
We heard a lot in the last election (years ago? decades?) about "The Culture of Corruption." Well, we've seen that culture, and it turns out to be Nancy and her friends.
God save the Republic.
