Dirty, sexy money

For the second day in a row, reporter Claire Shipman touted the story of an RNC staffer who submitted expense accounts after taking a donor to a strip club in Hollywood. Shipman’s piece featured a clip of CNN anchor John Roberts gloating, “It’s a story of dirty, sexy money” and of fellow cable host Rick Sanchez imploring, “Someone need to tell me how to spend $2000 at a topless club.”

Other journalist snippets included Chris Matthews chiding, “The latest embarrassment for the RNC during the reign of Michael Steele.” On Monday, after Shipman detailed expenses Steele reported including limo usage and private jet travel, she opined, “It’s the sort of spending controversy that sounds so, well, pre-recession.”

You have got to be kidding me.  “Dirty, sexy money.”  Isn’t it comforting to know that these “journalists” are so cncerned about republican money.  I do believe the money is from private donations, right?  Then what business is it of theirs?  They hate republicans.  You would think they would be happy to see republican money wasted.  But let me say this:  who would have thought the republican party would be associated with dirty sexy money?

And somehow they always mention Michael Steele’s name, when he was nowhere near the scene of this so-called bondage club.  I think it could be a racist attack on Mr. Steele.  It has to be because otherwise why would these “journalists” want to malign him in this way.

You would think they want you to believe it was Michael Steele who was at the club.  So this is a vicious racist attack on him.

And besides that, surely they don’t object to republicans using their own money to try to put a little life in this party of  no.   All they want to do is have a little fun.  🙂  🙂  Why, Meghan McCain may have even recommended it.  Loosen up, like, people.

But as far as I know, and as far as I believe, Mr. Steele is pretty much an upright guy, and I think these newscasters know he is.

Oh, wait, he did say drill, baby, drill.    🙂

I was a little upset with how much money Nancy Pelosi spent of TAXPAYER money for all her travels, food, and liquor while the country is in recession.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) has spent or authorized spending at least $3.2 million on trips, hotels, food, high-priced liquor, and military jet rides in the past two years.

You think maybe CNN and MSNBC could focus on all the tax money being wasted daily?  Well, no, they can’t, they won’t – until the republicans take the place over soon.  Then they’ll be all over it.

“It’s not Armageddon” – Yet

In Iowa City on Thursday Obama:

Mocked opponents of the bill who said that its passage would be an “Armageddon”:

So after I signed the bill, I looked around to see if there any — (laughter) — asteroids falling or — (applause) — some cracks opening up in the Earth. (Laughter.) It turned out it was a nice day. (Laughter.) Birds were chirping. Folks were strolling down the Mall. People still have their doctors.


What this reform does is build on the system of private health insurance that we already have. So does that mean that it’s going to solve every health care problem that we have? No. But it finally tells — oops, it looks like somebody may have fainted. That happens sometimes in the crowd. Just give him some space. If the medics can make sure to check on them, in the meantime just make sure that they’ve got some air. And if anybody has some water down there, that’d be great. They’ll be all right.

And, oops, 123 people will die today.  According to their own figures, over 179,000 people will die “from lack of insurance” in the four years before this law takes effect.  If you were able to follow the proceedings, you heard these figures cited on the House floor.

But I can almost picture him saying something like that to someone who needs medical care and who has not supported him.  “Just give him some air and a drink of water.  He’ll be all right.”

And what is going on with the swoonings?  The same thing happened in his visit to Pennsylvania on March 8th.

Someone made this comment:

“It was a heckler.
He was swarmed and hauled out yelling “Don’t You Dare,” while the clowns on the stage joked and laughed about it with each other and “The One.””

Flash back to the campaign trail.

It really does remind you of a Jim Jones type rally.  The staging and the lies have built a house of cards that will soon be coming down, just as soon as reality puffs on it a little bit.
