Patches - stay off the roads......
Is this not illegal bribery? Have we got so decadent we don’t care about political bribery? . Is this not impeachable? If I am Mayor and I don’t see you except for money— don’t I go to jail???
Patrick Kennedy showed up late for flight to Boston out of DCA some years back. The aircraft had long since pushed, but Kennedy risked arrest screaming at the agent to “call the plane back”. In true Blueblood fashion he dropped his name, Ted Kennedy’s and anyone else he could think of before finally settling for threatening the agent with, “I’ll have your job for this!”..
If Hannibal Lecter can insist on it, why not Obama?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
OK, I have to confess, Patches is the one Kennedy I sort of modestly admired. He always seemed reasonably decent and honest, thanks to his Alcoholics Anonymous self introspection, I guess.
He just completely unexpectedly proved himself big time, with this honesty.
Watch your back, Patches.
when GWB was in office this was called “cronyism”....under ayatollah obama they call it “change you can believe in”...
In somewhat less fastidious circles, this is known as bribery, and it’s very much a practice indigenous to Third World nations - as, for example, in Africa.
And this is surprising to just who?
In Chicago, it’s called “pay for play”. Blago just went to jail for it. (he’s one of the few!)
Nobody uses it as effectively as Obastard has, since getting into politics.
