Whoremonger Eliot Spitzer delivered more than 27,000 signatures to New York officials Thursday, more than enough needed to get on the ballot for his planned return to politics.
Does this mean nearly 30,000 people think its OK for a former New York governor who resigned in disgrace after revelations that he dallied repeatedly with high-priced call girls on taxpayer expense, to return to public office.
Possibly, or it may just mean that the current crop of candidates for elected office is so bad that even a man who screwed whores behind his wife’s back is better than the other choices.
Jesus. Has the pool for public service sunk so low that people like Spitzer can return to power?
Yes, it has. Those currently in power has set such a low standard that anyone — and we say again anyone — can and does run for office.
If Americans wanted someone really qualified for office would Barack Obama be President? No. Would George W. Bush have spent two terms in the White House? No way.
Tea party centerfold Michele Bachmann is leaving Congress this year. In a world where only those who deserved to win would be in Washington, Bachmann would have never been a so-called “representative” from Minnesota. Sarah Palin brought a history of drug abuse and dalliances with athletes — and little else — with her to the governorship of Alaska and that, for reasons that evade logic and reason, put her on the ticket as John McCain‘s vice presidential candidate.
In the 2012 Presidential election, the Republicans came up with potential candidates like the pitiful Bachmann, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich — whose only accomplishments in office is a history of dumping wives for mistresses — or Herman Cain, a former executive with a long record of sexually harassing women.
Corruption, banality and outright criminality have become so prominent in elected office that revelations of misdoings have become commonplace.
Spitzer is not the only elected officials to dally with whores. Louisiana’s Senator David Vitter made it part of his regular schedule. Sleeping with those who want money for the service, is business as usual in politics.
So, sadly, is pettiness as we saw this week on the floor of the United States Senate as Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a lightweight when it comes to IQ and judgement, launched a bitter tirade against Majority Leader Harry Reid, another mental midget with a sordid history of questionable ethics.
On the floor, McConnell said, “my friend the majority leader is going to be remembered as the worst leader in the Senate ever. It makes me sad.”
Really? The “sad” McConnell was giddy enough to post an image of a Harry Reid tombstone on his Facebook page with the caption: “Killed the Senate.”
Reid responded in the Senate by calling McConnell “my friend.”
Both are lying. They aren’t friends. Not even close. They hate each other.
If the Senate dies, which is entirely possible, McConnell — with his obstructionist policies — will be as much to blame as Reid. Both put their parties above what is best for America and neither is qualified to be in the Senate.
But what’s the option? Another tail-chasing ex-office holder and another lightweight with no political experience. Barack Obama was a first term Senator when he ran for President. Qualified for the White House? Not even close.
So Republicans are touting two first term Senators as leading candidates for the White House in 2016: Marco Rubio from Florida or Rand Paul in Kentucky.
God help us.
