Desperate Hypocrisy

It is not surprising to me that lefties are still trying to make an issue about a supposed connection between jailed lobbyist Jack Abramoff and Congressman Bob Schaffer. After all, Schaffer is the Republican candidate for the 2008 U.S. Senate race in Colorado.

Democrats have milked the Abramoff stories 'till the cows come home. They paint him as a beast, corrupt and vile as can be.

However, since they have so far not been able to make any of their shots at Schaffer stick, they now are trying a different tack. Jason Salzman, in his lefty On The Media column in today's Rocky Mountain News, wants reporters to try to talk directly to Abramoff. Yes, that's right, now the left is taking the desperate last ditch tactic of trying to get Abramoff to say that he had some ties with Schaffer! The vile, corrupt, jailed lobbyist is now going to be the left's last best hope to revive the story! They have painted him as completely corrupt, but now hope he will say that he did have ties to Schaffer! That's called trying to have it both ways, or having your cake and eating it too. The hypocrisy never ends.

The whole lobbyist machine is scary to me. Talk about a government system out of control??? You can't tell bad guys from good guys. And I personally count the MSM the bad guys for right now.
