Call me old fashion, but right is right and wrong is wrong. Its not only the line item veto but a host of other issues that Democratic bloggers excuse their emperors of.
Lets start with a king of all apologists, Seth of In Effect. I thought maybe, I know I was hoping for too much, that he’d come down hard on Wisconsin’s most corrupt governor.
No, here is what he has to say abut the Troha Gate.
And that has nothing to do with Doyle himself, but rather the Office of Governor in the State of Wisconsin.
What the fluck, that’s like saying hey I am not responsible, it my families fault. And then he titles his post, Its the Institution Stupid, like somehow there is such a thing as a institution devoid of human agency. Our institutions are corrupt because of stupid people that elect corrupt politicians like Doyle and Thompson.
Oh, that’s not all. Bert at Folkbum endorsed if not wrote a little piece making light of the contradiction between Gore’s public words and private deeds. Like Dick Cheney’s daughter, Gore’s mansion is inbounds because of its direct connection to both global warming and public policy. I don’t give a crap how many credits he has stored up, his energy use is inexcusable for any American. I would even go so far as to call it energy terrorism. For a more non-apologetic piece on Gore check out Al Gore, the Kilowatt Whore !?!.
