THE PALEOCRAT TRIBUNE

Little more than a gaggle of hacks and geeks.

“Barkeep, Another Round of Corruption…”

The ol’ guvna from Illinois got ’emself inta trouble, din’ne?

If you ask me, the entire debacle is hysterical. So, the guy wanted to make a few extra bucks selling seats? Isn’t the first time, and it certainly won’t be the last. But were the American people to be honest with themselves, they would admit to their being aware that most elected officials paid someone off to get where they were. A public official here, a lobbyist there, the American populace everywhere.  

None of this is to diminish the ethical depravity of the situation. Heaven forbid! Rather, I wish only to put it into context. 

Let’s take a deep breathe, put on our thinking caps, and really reflect upon events that have riddled those currently decrying the governor. Why not peek into the closet of those who want to “get to the bottom of it”? Well, I presume peeking into a closet isn’t at all necessary when these things are in public view… at any rate, here are three biggies. Add more if you wish.

  • Washington is paying out ungodly amounts of taxpayer dollars to corporate goons who ought to be given a comfy bed right next to Bubba in the toughest of the roughest prisons.
  • Washington lawmakers tucked lemon drops and lollipops in the “rescue package” to reward them for their unceasing, heartless pillaging of Johnny Q. and Sally Sue Public.
  • Washington, in cahoots with Big Pharma, is doping up our war-torn troops, responding to problems like Schizophrenia, Post-Traumatic Stress disorder, and Manic-Depression as coherently as one who would prescribe a Band-Aid to a soldier who just got his arm blown off.

I would be horrifically insincere were I not to admit to the fact that I crack a bit of a smile whenever I hear of corrupt men and women being brought before the people for a good stoning of public opinion. Too bad most of the people hurling stones have so much blood on their hands. Too bad the media focuses so much attention on the spec without first focusing on the plank. Too bad, too bad, too bad all around.
