Welcome to the Culture of Corruption, DiFi!
by John W. Lillpop
As originally conceived by Nancy Pelosi and her pals on the loony left, the culture of corruption (COC) was to be the least democratic, least inclusive, and least honorable society in all of Washington, D.C.
Pelosi envisioned that the COC would be the exclusive domain of Caucasian Republican men. That would be scalawags like Tom Delay, Duke Cunningham, Jack Abramoff, Scooter Libby, and hundreds more to be named just in time for the 2006 mid-term elections.
While Pelosi was building her case for the COC as a Republican-only institution, her cohorts in the Democrat Party started misbehaving by slugging Capitol police (Cynthia McKenzie), driving while looped and loaded (Patrick Kennedy), and accepting bribes on video (William J. Jefferson).
And in a new development sure to rock Pelosi's last six plastic surgeries, COC has expanded its membership criteria and now admits Democrat Jewish women.
Senator Diane Feinsten (D-Calif.) is the first COC member in that category owing to her resignation from the Senate's Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee.
Feinstein was chairperson and ranking member of MILCON for six years, during which time she had a conflict of interest due to her husband Richard C. Blum's ownership of two major defense contractors, who were awarded billions of dollars for military construction projects approved by Feinstein.
But, of course, we can rest assured that Pelosi and Harry Reid are working night and day to bring out all the facts in the Feinstein fiasco.
