The truth is, it’s a sad day in America when Joe Biden’s blarney would be a marked improvement in Oval Office leadership.

Howard Dean raising a slush fund for the Wisconsin 14
Interesting story at the American Spectator. It seems that the Dean brothers (Howard and his brother Jim) have put together an organization to raise money for the support of the 14 Wisconsin democrats on the lam. And they’ve raised over $120,000. The money is being funneled into the Wisconsin State Senate Democratic Committee. Wisconsin law prohibits contributions of over $6000 in one calender year from any one organization or person, so the this violates that law by a large amount – well over $100,000.
Donations in the sum of at least $14, to support the 14 runaway politicians or as they call them- heroes, are being accepted at this website. “Please contribute $14 to the Wisconsin State Democratic Committee right now and tell these 14 Hero Democrats to stand strong…”
I’ve wondered how these guys were supporting themselves in Illionois and I knew that not one of them were staying at a Comfort Inn or Motel 6. Now I have an answer.
“Alas for the Wisconsin senators and their Dean Dollars, Governor Scott Walker is watching. So too their doubtless appalled Republican colleagues. Not to mention the horrified and mad as hell taxpayers of Wisconsin.
Did I leave out the entire nation?
Where are Wisconsin State Senate Democrats’ Dean Dollars going? And based on the reality that Wisconsin teachers and some doctors are seen lying… on camera!… who will believe the answer when it comes? From either the Deans or the missing state senators?”
“Thanks to the Deans and 14 AWOL Wisconsin Democrats in the State Senate — now flush with a slush fund of over a hundred grand — the idea of being a “public employee” and “teacher” will never be seen the same way again. Not to mention being a Democrat in the Wisconsin State Senate.”
It’s pathetic to me that the Deans can raise this kind of money in less than a week for these renegade, outlaw politicians but the American Spectator is trying to only raise $25,ooo to keep its website going and struggling at just over $6000, so far.
Christie: “The day of reckoning is here”
And I love this: “No body in New Jersey will have to wonder where I am on an issue”:
Who says Obama doesn’t keep his promises?
He can be forgiven, I guess for not keeping this promise:
“And I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.” [Emphasis added]
But Mallory Factor recently provided a valuable public service in finding two promises from his 2008 campaign that President Obama has managed to keep. One was “Date Night,” a pledge that if elected he would take his wife Michelle out for a date in New York City, which he did at great taxpayer expense for the Air Force One trip and for blanket Secret Service coverage, greatly worsening city traffic jams. The other was his pledge to get his girls a dog, which he did in acquiring Bo, a Portuguese water dog.
