Well as hard as it is to believe, apparently being stupid and venal is no impingement to advancing in the Republican hierarchy, but being dumb, venal AND a hypocrite might.

Tennessee Rep. Scott DesJarlais, the anti-abortion Republican physician accused of encouraging his wife and mistress to have multiple abortions,
raised just $39,000 in the second quarter, according to his most recent report to the Federal Election Commission. It’s a paltry sum for an
incumbent member and signals more trouble for his re-election prospects in 2014.

I’m sure everyone is asking the same question…how did this guy even get $39,000?

Maybe one of his fellow dumb, venal and hypocritical departing kleptomaniacs helped?

Javier Sanchez, a former senior legislative assistant to Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., has been arrested in connection with a string of
thefts in the Rayburn House Office Building, Fox News has learned.

What a shock, huh?  Michele Bachmann connected to a theft…oh, sorry I mean FoxNews learning something.



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
