Wolf Blitzer Attempts to Spin Blago

You could almost feel sorry for the moonbat tool Wolf Blitzer, who as a CNN employee has the onerous task of spinning the Rod Blagojevich fiasco so as to make Democrats look good. Here's his best effort:

You know, most of the scandals — most of the political scandals… in recent years have involved Republicans… and they're all pretty well-known.

By "well-known," Blitzer means "well-hyped"; whereas Democrat scandals are ignored or glossed over to the extent the media can manage while still half-seriously maintaining a pretense of credibility.

The names Eliot Spitzer, Kwame Kilpatrick, John Edwards, and Tim Mahoney — all Dems like Blago who have been involved in appalling scandals in the last year — apparently don't ring any bells in Blitzer's bat-infested belfry.

And yeah, Republicans are a lot more likely to be indicted if they are Illinois governors. 100% of Democrat governors of Illinois since 1953 have been indicted versus 20% of the Republicans..

Gee, Wolf! And you wonder why nobody watches your bulls--t "news" channel -- what an idiot!

Big Bad Wolf Blitzer of the COMMUNISTS NEWS NETWORK and owned by RED TED TURNER what else can you ever expect from these miserble lying lowlife reptiles

uuuugggh that quote from Blitzer made me want to punch my screen. It only takes one braincell to see that as spin.

Anyway, OT, I took my turn over at Kos-peeping. The general tone (once you scroll down past all the religious-bashing pro gay stuff) about our current event here is nervousness. They SO want to believe that BHO is squeaky clean, but are too scared to look under that rock. Nervous about political capital gained and lost before spent. No matter what Wolf says, they KNOW there's a taint.

Excuse me, sir. Beautiful day. Your name's Blitzer? Wolf Blitzer? Nice to meet you. My name's Rod. Say, Mr Blitzer, you and the Mrs, - how would you like to buy a Senate seat? I've got the deed right here.

The Illinois Senate seat - the Democrats have made it the new "would you like to buy a bridge" joke.

I think he comes to this conclusion because he searched the CNN archives using (R) and (D).

Most people are hypocrites to one degree or another, and will take at least some advantage given the chance... but if you REALLY are a self serving, greedy, SOB who doesn't give a shit about anyone but himself and maybe his nearest "kin", and wants to posess as much as he can get his hands on, which party are you most likely to support? The one that promises to let you pursue your pathetic little dream the most... lower taxes, fewer laws to get in you way ...and plenty of enemies to satisfy your need to blame someone else...

OOPs I for got to add the HATE HATE HATE part.... there.

Blago get under the bus, if there's any room.
Nice spin Wolf, you Moonbat tool.

"Wolf's" real name is Leslie Blitzer.

They could consider paying ME to take the job - but they can't afford me.

Plus I have brains and ethics. I wouldn't be welcome in politics.

In my state (Alabama), our former governor (a Democrat) was found guilt of bribery and mail fraud in 2006. He's now appealing.

And just recently, the Democratic mayor of Birmingham was arrested on a 101 count indictment alleging conspiracy, bribery, fraud, money laundering, and filing false tax returns in connection with a long-running bribery scheme.

But who cares about all that? After all, there's a Republican senator who tapped his foot in an airport bathroom!

Dino (masquerading as 'VtheF'):

If I was a "self serving, greedy, SOB who doesn't give a shit about anyone but himself and maybe his nearest "kin", and wants to posess as much as he can get his hands on", which party would I support? Well, that's a no-brainer, dumbass. Why would I vote for the Republicans, who would expect me to pull my own weight, when the Democrats can go out and steal for me via the IRS? Maybe that's why most felons vote Democrat (whether they're legally eligible to or not).

Quinn

created false front charities, funded them... and other such things.

and still is in office..

Wolfie apparently forgot William Jefferson, DEMOCRAT Louisiana who just this past week lost his bid for reelection.

You know there's something about hiding a hundred grand worth of bribe money that turns some voters off.

Yes, republicans have had their scandalous politicians, always made more scandealous by the lame stream media, but you have to admit:

The democrats always manage to put forward the scoundrels with true star power!

Unless you propose to get rich by pocketing the taxes, in which case higher taxes make perfect sense.

Similarly with expanding the reach of the law. The more laws, especially bogus ones, the more problems for people who can be shaken down for bribes to circumvent those laws. For example, do crooked building inspectors want fewer items in the building code? Not hardly.

So you didn't think this one through, Einstein.

Afterthought: all of the big corrupt political machines are Democratic. All of them - no exceptions. Tammany Hall, the Pendergast machine, Chicago since...forever...New Orleans...all Democratic. In part this is because the Democrats have at least given lip service to the downtrodden, who a) tend to live in cities, where the population density makes machine politics worthwhile, and b) are less fastidious about how they level the playing field, as they see it.

But corrupt city machine politics and the Democratic Party go together like peanut butter and jelly, and always have.

The new administration hasn't even taken office yet (assuming it gets to) and already it's corrupt. I'm predicting, given his utter void of relevant experience, plus his retarded marxist ideology, this administration will be so incompetent as to make Jimmy Carter look like an expert, and if he's true to his previous political behavior and his Chicago background, he'll make not only LBJ and Slick Willie, but Nixon himself look like Boy Scouts. This would be entertaining if it wasn't shaping up to be such a disaster.

Guys, Soldier's Angels need money for postage fast to send out 40,000 care packages to Iraq, Afghanistan and to recovering troops in hospitals. They only have 3 days to raise the postage needed.

Go here to contribute a few bucks to the cause please, if you are able.

Done, from a fellow hoosier.

Again, from someone who works in the broadcasting industry- your days are numbered, Mr. Blitzer. I sense a job opening at CNN in the near future.
I firmly believe that these parrots and spinners will lose their jobs once the scandalous fireworks really get going with the Obama show... but chances are, they'll just be replaced by someone else with a similar agenda, but whom can develop credibility. Regardless of what the news media may think sometimes, people aren't stupid. In the long run, credibility is WAAAAAY more important than election-year ratings. But Keith, Wolf, Tweety Matthews- keep it up. There's a whole bunch of ambitious young un's like myself that would jump at a chance to do your job- BETTER THAN YOU, might I add.
Clock's tickin', fellas...

What a scum. "pursue your pathetic little dream" that's how they feel about a desire to keep well and fairly earned money from these looters. Same shit that took over Russia in 1917 and Germany in 1933 (and same talk). They are evil and dangerous. Misguided my ass.
