Finger On The Pulse

Democrats may be the stupidest assholes on the face of the Earth. At at time when America is screaming for a party to take the populist reigns, when anger is about to explode, when millions lose their jobs while Walls Street gets bailed out and takes millions in bonuses, they do this:

Twelve Democratic Senators spent last weekend in Miami Beach raising money from top lobbyists for oil, drug, and other corporate interests that they often decry, according to a guest list obtained by Politico.

The guest list for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee's "winter retreat" at the Ritz Carlton South Beach Resort doesn't include the price tag for attendance, but the maximum contribution to the committee, typical for such events, is $30,000. There, to participate in "informal conversations" and other meetings Saturday, were senators including DSCC Chairman Robert Menendez; Michigan's Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow; Bob Casey of Pennsylvania; Claire McCaskill of Missouri; freshmen Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Mark Begich of Alaska; and even left-leaning Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Nice work. You guys just get it. And if you get the chance, maybe wipe your asses with some $100 dollar bills, then burn them on the steps of Congress.
“In the upcoming elections, voters will face a choice between Republicans who are standing with Wall Street fat cats, bankers and insurance companies — or Democrats who are working hard to clean up the mess we inherited by putting the people’s interests ahead of the special interests,” Menendez said in a press release last Wednesday.
Head - desk.

I wondered why Sanders voted for the wealthcare bill in the Senate. Now, I know.

We desperately need to outlaw private financing of campaigns.
