The price of the shallow end of the pool

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 .
