We must not forget the heroic words of Nancy Pelosi in 2006, when she vowed that if she became Speaker of The House that she would, "drain the swamp of corruption." It was a noble phrase that Americans were waiting to hear and Nancy surely paid a speech writer well for his effort. The phrase could have been a pledge to be honored, bringing bothb honor and integrity to a House that has been marred with corruption and scandal. Instead, it became another empty slogan of a campaign, to be forgotten amid wars and an increasingly vulnerable economy. Unfortunately, the dirty Weiner arose from his pulpit of sanctimonious indignation and served to remind the public of the outrageous hyperbole of Pelosi's proclamation.
Even after the multiple ethics infractions of Rangel, she and the Dems protected both Rangel and Waters, but comparatively speaking, she is utterly impotent and powerless when she comes face to face with the Weiner. Waters and Rangel deserved their day in court, but more importantly Americans deserved to see them in court for those same crimes, lesser Americans often receive prison time. With Rangel, we see ethics charges that amounted to little more than a slap on the wrist and still he claims he was railroaded. Waters' trial, has seemingly been placed on indefinite hold until she is defeated or it is forgotten.
Now, we have Weiner who refuses to quit when nearly everyone except Rangel has asked him to step down. Rangel in an extraordinary example of Democratic logic and ethics, has stated that since he wasn't texting little boys, there was no foul. Thank you Congressman Rangel, your sage wisdom will now become a part of history that will be held up as a modern day equivalent of Nathan Hale's "I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country."
Still the indomitable Weiner and his refusal to accept rejection is causing an extreme embarrassment for the Democrat Party; an embarrassment that will cost them votes in 2012. Will Pelosi be forced to actually to pull the imaginary plug to get rid of the rotten Weiner. It is a true conundrum (a problem with more than two solutions) for Pelosi. If she ignores his perversions and refuses to act, the Democrat Party may well cease to be a significant force after the next election. If she moves to have him removed there will be political fall out among the Democrat ranks and even more attention will be focused on the scandal. He has now entered "recovery", a word that by definition implies he will win over his sexual perversions by paying his dues and by being treated; thus he will never be compelled to commit these perversions again and with a few extra sessions they may convince him that lying and making false criminal accusations is wrong as well. It is amazing what a little treatment can accomplish these days. Honesty, integrity, morals, and honor are all available if you just pay for your hourly sessions. It is amazing we even send people to prison these days. There is one slight hitch in this grand giddy-up, Americans don't like or trust Perverts; especially, lying perverts in positions of leadership. If Pelosi is willing to claim that the Lindsay Lohan cure will make Weiner into a brand new "Member" the American people will laugh at the absurdity of Pelosi and her hare brained logic. Of course the Democrats will suffer serious defeats no matter what direction Pelosi chooses, as a direct result of her indecision in dealing with the corruption she boasted of ending and of not knowing what to do with a misbehaving Weiner. However, perhaps she originally meant to only get rid of Republican corruption.

That's pretty scummy. Got a comment?
No, actually you never comment.
You just pimp material from the same blog.
Isn’t that curious?
Why would she drain the swamp? It’s the Dem’s natural habitat.
“Americans don’t like or trust perverts” - maybe not, but they sure elect them. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Barney Frank. No...seriously...get him out of here.
