Sen. Blanche Lincoln, under fire for keeping a $4,500 contribution from Goldman Sachs’s political action committee, has canceled a fundraising lunch with Goldman executives that was scheduled for Monday and would have netted many times that amount for the Arkansas Senator’s reelection campaign.

The cancelled fundraiser, which was to have been held at Goldman’s Lower Manhattan headquarters, is emblematic of the investment bank’s swift fall from well-connected fundraising powerhouse to political pariah – a fate sealed Friday when the Securities and Exchange Commission charged the firm with defrauding investors

I do not like Goldman.

However, the true “toxic” perps here are Obama, ACORN, Barney Frank, Fannie and Freddie!

Was in Bentonville, AR the other day. Saw many signs out for the upcoming (R) political primary. My favorite was a “ANYBODY BUT BLANCHE” sign. The Congressional Republican, is challenging Blanche’s Senate seat, so his seat is being hotly contested. It looks to be a pretty conservative area, and I’m confident that we can all say goodbye to Blanche come this November.
