Politicians On Both Sides of The Aisle Are So Pompous!

February 15th, 2013 by Michael Tabor
I blogged a little something the other day about the illuminating documentary I saw – ‘Casino Jack and The United States of Money’ which really, sadly, shed light on how corrupt and flawed our system of government really is; money doesn’t talk, it SCREAMS !!! Many politicians, I won’t say most, but more politicians than we would like to comfortably admit, can easily be bought off (again stream this film off of Netflix – please !!!) I am certain that I am going to be researching and writing a whole lot more about our entrusted public officials and the slime ball lobbyists who bribe them; I just want to leave you with something that the great documentarian, Alex Gibney (love this guy) stated on the commentary of ‘Casino JackMoney”  I actually went back and wrote down what he said about “The big bad sleazy – Tom Delay”

Here it is:  “Look at Tom Delay walking with all that swagger and confidence (remember how Dubya strutted?) and knowing that he’s the man with all that power .. walking down the halls of the hill surrounded by his ass-kissing aides … it’s like Delay thinks he’s Achilles and his Myrmidons walking towards the walls of Troy ready to do battle and out comes his BIG weapon – the cell phone.”  I laughed so hard…hahahhahah, it’s so true !!! These guys are just pathetic scum.

So WhaDaYaThinK ? What do you think ? After seeing Alex Gibney’s documentary, I must confess that I have become unfortunately a less naïve and more cynical person in terms of how and why certain laws are passed. Jimmy Stewart’s ‘Mr. Smith Goes To Washington”… if life were only a movie authored by the pollyanna and idealistic – Frank Capra …

    Here’s Tom Delay on Dancing with the stars, and if he weren’t so contembtible & sleazy (he hurt so many people w/o remorse) one might say, okay he’s goofing on himself…. but Mr. Delay is evil, hateful, and perhaps the most despicable of of them all – oops 2nd only to Ralph Reed, the real anti- christ.
