The contrast between how the Left handles opinion, Joe Lieberman’s opinion, and corruption is amazing. The short version is this, disagreeing with Obama’s policies is far worse than being ethically or legally corrupt.
Take Charles Rangel (D-NY) for example. Never mind for now the other Democrats that are under ethics probes. But remember too what Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) said after gaining the majority in November 2006. She said she was going to “drain the swamp” of corruption on Capitol Hill. A leaked document tells a different story. From the Washington Post . . .
Two and a half years into Pelosi’s reign, more than 25 Democrats have been targeted for ethics reviews by the two ethics bodies, while just seven Republicans appeared to be under scrutiny, according to the document.
Corruption? Eh, no biggie. But disagree, you’ll be piled on by the Left like those at Democrats.com. There, Bob Fertik says Lieberman must have his committee chair position yanked. But not for Rangel.
Fertik neglected to say what committee he wanted Lieberman yanked from. Lieberman Chairs the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
Fertik is all bent out of shape over Lieberman’s decision to not support the Public Option on health insurance reform. The funny thing is though, yanking his chairmanship position is not going to change his vote. But seeing the far Left get bent out of shape for Lieberman representing his constituents is amusing.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. Now Fertik is calling for a ‘donor strike‘ for all Democrats that don’t support the socialist option. Good luck with that.
