Culture of Corruption Update: Democrats three times more cultured than Republicans

by editor on May 26, 2009

The face of corruption in Washington, DC. And a lovely face it is.

Funny thing. We’re not hearing the Democrats bang that culture of corruption drum much these days. Maybe it’s because they cleaned up all the corruption.

Just kidding.

It’s actually because the overwhelming number of politicians under investigation in Washington, DC these days are – drum roll, please – Democrats.

Fact is, there are now 12 active investigations looking into Democrats and only 4 looking into Republicans.

Democratic members of Congress under investigation: Sanford Bishop of Georgia, Jesse Jackson of Illinois, Allan Mollohan of West Virginia, John Murtha of Pennsylvania, Charlie Rangel of New York, Linda Sanchez of California, Loretta Sanchez of California, Pete Visclosky of Indiana.

Democratic Senators under investigation: Roland Burris of Illinois, Kent Conrad of North Dakota, Bob Menendez of New Jersey.

Republican members of Congress under investigation: Jerry Lewis of California, Garry Miller of California, Tim Murphy of Pennsylvania, Don Young of Alaska.

Republican Senators under investigation: None.

Sad to say, we don’t attribute this to any great sense of honesty on the part of the Republicans. It’s more likely that they’re just so weak and ineffectual that they’re not worth trying to corrupt them anymore.

Nancy Pelosi said she was going to drain the swamp, problem is she saw her own caucus wallowing in the mud when she did

Actually, I think the GOP already cleaned house. You pay a price for doing that, but in the end, what goes ’round…

And if Pelosi did “drain the swamp,” she’d find herself sucked right out with the muck. In my opinion.

It probably does have more to do with who is in power and who is worth corrupting. So why pay that republican money for his vote when his vote doesn’t actually amount to anything? But if you think about the administration… how many didn’t pay their taxes in the past? I lost count.

One of the great dividing lines in culture is those who think they should TRY to do good, strive to be good and moral, live up to very high ideas – though they may often fail—- and those who believe that there is no use trying to be good and moral because you are just going to become a hypocrite when you do fail.
I am on the side of striving to HIGH ideas. I am not a Democrat/liberal.

Nancy may go to church, may bow to the pope all she wants but she doesn’t really believe God is watching. It is called compartmentalization and we all do to a degree, but she is an expert at it.
