Where's The Outrage?
It was right to rout Bill Frist out of office. Blatant scoundrels like him need not hold prominent posts in any administration. The front pages and blog space dedicated to the investigations played a large part in removing him from influence.
Having said that, I have always held that, despite all our political discourse, no matter how earnest we are about who we support, that nothing really changes all that much. Oh, the outrage over Frist over at My Dirty Life & Times, et al… They were right about him, but how about now?
Not until page seven of today’s paper did I read about Rep. William Jefferson being appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to a Homeland Security post. That’s right folks, the guy with $90K in cash stuffed in his freezer. The guy who’s office was raided by the feds. The very guy who was handed his hat from the Ways and Means Committee. The guy despite it all, was REELECTED by his constituents.
And why is this NOT a front page story? Oh that’s right, fair and balanced. There is no hope. Congratulations Democrats, you're now no better than the Republicans.
Meet the new boss, same as the old f’n boss…
