Pimpocratic Senator From The State of Whorehouses

Harry Reid turns up everywhere. Like here:

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, yesterday wrote in a letter to the president, "Rather than relying upon staged events and partisan denunciations of those who are seeking to improve the act, it would be helpful if you would instruct your staff to work with us."
This is coming from a guy whose entire career as Senate Minority Leader has been based on partisan denunciations and being unhelpful. Not that there's anything wrong with that. There's nothing to be gained from being nice to Democrats.

And Reid is here, too:
A spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Mr. Reid has no intention of shedding the $47,000 he has received from members of Abramoff's lobbying team and tribal clients. "Abramoff was a Republican operative, and this is a Republican scandal," Reid spokesman Jim Manley said.
Well, sure. Democrats don't give a rat's ass where their money comes from, as long as they get it, and they don't care who else has problems over it. Just like their fiscal/taxation policies. It's not a privilege to them, oh no; it's an entitlement. Sure, it's dirty money, but it's someone else's dirty money. We can put it to better use than they can.

Does Harry Reid feel the same way about sexually transmitted diseases? Not that it's important, but I was just curious, seeing as how he's from Nevada and all.

Pimps and whores. The perfect metaphor for the Democrat officeholders and the morons who put them there.

It is amuses me that Democrats are so vain that they don't think that this lobbying scandal is going to spread to them too when Abramoff finally spills the beans. They go to a lot of trouble to call Abramoff a "Republican operative" but in fact no lobbyist can afford to be "partisan".
The Republican Congressman that got caught up in the "Abscam" of the 70's was a dope..remember the FBI video tape of him stuffing wads of cash from the "arabs".
This is how these things used to work and please note that it was the Democrats who were more likely to have Congressman whose sole source of income was their Congressional wages and expense accounts..
If you needed a favor from a Congressman in 1975 you needed $15,000 cash..
$ 5000 for the lobbyist fixer, $ 5000 for the corrupt staffer and $ 5000 for the Congressman. It's a lot more expensive nowadays!
