This has to be a first! CNN recently conducted a public opinion poll to determine the top three dirtiest, most corrupt, most scandalous politicians of 2008, and surprise surprise! They’re all Democrats!
Although, strangely enough, I didn’t hear about this from CNN. No, it took an affiliate of NBC in Chicago to break the news. *gasp* You mean, CNN might just be going out of their way to avoid tainting public opinion of their beloved Democrats?! Color me shocked!
So despite CNN’s bias, what did their own poll have to say about the most corrupt politicians of 2008? Let’s find out!
With 19% of the vote, former presidential candidate John Edwards is awarded the bronze medal! He admitted in August that he had cheated on his cancer-stricken wife with former campaign staffer – and certified holistic nutjob – Rielle Hunter. He’s still denying he fathered a love child with the “Being is Free” crazy chick, even though we’re pretty much entirely certain that, yeah, there’s another John Jr hanging around in a gratis love shack with the baby mama.
But perhaps more disturbing than the affair is the fact that the mainstream media took their sweet time in releasing the story. Yup, that’s right, yet again the msm bent over backwards for their beloved Democrats and did absolutely everything they possibly could to bury the story, for fear that some of the bad press might hinder Obama’s chances at the presidency. Eighteen months after the story first broke in the Enquirer (you know, that bastion of hard-hitting journalism), the msm were forced to finally open their mouths when Edwards was caught red handed sneaking out of a hotel in Beverly Hills, where he’d just met up with Rielle in an attempt to allegedly shut her up. Cause, you know, nothing says “Unbiased Journalism” like sitting on a red hot juicy story of corruption for over a year! So I’d say the MSM definitely deserves a special honorable mention for making this bronze medal all the more interesting and that much more damning.
Coming in at number two with 23% of the vote is New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, who despite pledging to take down prostitution, ended up getting down with a prostitute instead. He was forced to step down in March after being busted, yet somehow, prosecutors will not be filing criminal charges against him. Anybody else just a tad bit disappointed with that? Cause gee, last I checked, prostitution was a crime and – at least as far as I’m aware – politicians aren’t immune from prosecution for such things.
So with all that delicious corruption on both sides of the podium, who deserves the top spot? That honor has been reserved for Governor Rod Blagojevich! (big surprise) As the scandal keeps spreading like a virus from the Illinois Governor’s office, slowly creeping out and infecting more and more people throughout the Democratic party, it’s easy to see why Rod deserves such a prestigious honor. The details get juicier and juicier every day, and as more names are added to this scarlet list of dirty dems, we can all sit back and giggle as the msm continues to taint their reputations as they repeatedly bend over backwards in an effort to keep the rest of us in the dark as to just how widespread this scandal really is. Now with word of a scandal brewing around New Mexico’s Democrat Governor Bill Richardson, there may be even more Democrats to add to that list come next year!
Gee, you’d think after the whole Edwards thing the msm would realize that Joe Q. Public is just a bit smarter than they give ‘em credit for? Naah, they can keep believing that we’re sheep, but by the time the next election rolls around, won’t they be surprised! They should know by now, thanks to their very own polling, that we’re at long last waking up, both to the corruption that’s running rampant in the Democratic party and the ridiculous elitist lap dogs of the Left that currently run the mainstream media. They may not have released their polling data, but sure enough, we still know about it.
Keep your eyes and ears open, people, cause more and more are waking up each and every day.
