We're back on the tarmac with Republican spendthrifts accusing the democrats of being wealthy elitists who are ripping off the taxpayers. They do this by picking one little example, usually false or exaggerated, and then (sic) pound on it relentlessly, getting the utterly irresponsible morons in the press to turn it into a "scandal." Get ready for "scandal" after "scandal" after "scandal." They haven't missed a beat.
We have just lived through a dozen years of these miserable crooks stealing the country blind. Many of them, including [Dan] Burton, are under ethical clouds and others are literally in jail for ripping off the taxpayers. The country is in such breathtaking debt that it will take a generation to fix it, if we can. They rubber-stamped the most unpopular, failed presidency since Hoover for six long years until the American people finally got sick of it. And here they are unctuously whining for hours about how they are just trying to "save the taxpayers money" by having a hissy fit over Nancy Pelosi's travel.
But here we are. CNN is lapping it up, suggesting that Pelosi should be willing to puddle jump through the nation if she doesn't have a tailwind that night, and generally giving this completely bullshit (Pentagon lie) story legs. All the cable bloviators are shivering with excitement about covering their favorite kind of story again -- trivial, bitchy, tabloid stories about Democrats. Yum.
I'm a very lucky person with every allergy known to man but still happy to be enjoying a wonderful life living in the best place in the world!
