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.”
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.
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.
