The Real Source of Corruption in Congress: Members’ Good-Faith Efforts To Help People

No degree, little experience pay off big

Just in his mid-20s, Brian Deschane has no college degree, very little management experience and two drunken-driving convictions.

Yet he has landed an $81,500-per-year job in Gov. Scott Walker’s administration overseeing environmental and regulatory matters and dozens of employees at the Department of Commerce. Even though Walker says the state is broke and public employees are overpaid, Deschane already has earned a promotion and a 26% pay raise in just two months with the state.

How did Deschane score his plum assignment with the Walker team?

It’s all in the family.

His father is Jerry Deschane, executive vice president and longtime lobbyist for the Madison-based Wisconsin Builders Association, which bet big on Walker during last year’s governor’s race.

No mention of how Mr. Deschane’s union is bilking the public. The article must be wrong.

Giuliani’s law firm seeking bailout business

So at what point is he going to claim that we need this bailout because of 9/11 and it would help the terrorists if we question if his firm is going to gorge itself on taxpayer dollars? 9/11! 9/11!.

Issue Isn’t Faith and Family

It is not snobbish to recognize that the job of vice president of the United States at this point in history requires a broad understanding of our diverse, globalized world and ways to strengthen the weakened position in it that this country has suffered over the last eight years.

From With Palin, the Issue Isn’t Faith and Family

A new acronym for this election, ITIS (pronounced it-is) for It’s The Incompetence Stupid. Palin is under a cloud of corruption, cronyism and abuse of power. She expects to avoid answering questions by demanding reverence. This should be a big red flashing warning sign of someone who could not, should not and must not be trusted with power.

Mississippi’s Ballot Trick

Defying state law, they have decided to hide a hard-fought race for the United States Senate at the bottom of the ballot, where they clearly are hoping some voters will overlook it. Their proposed design is not only illegal. It shows a deep contempt for Mississippi’s voters.

From Mississippi’s Ballot Trick

Remember the good old days when elected officials used to try and hide their law breaking rather than flaunt their contempt for laws they find inconvenient?
