If you’re a Republican running for office this November, you better start praying and donate boatloads to worthy charities. You’re going to need all the karma points you can get.
With so many Americans loosing their homes or already living on sardines and crackers after having lost their homes…after watching their savings evaporate….while taxpayers watched all the excesses which Wall Street is famous for, the rich became bloated hogs…with 2:1 of the public not blind enough to not blame the GOP for our woes, and an unjust war in Iraq…I’d find it a hard sell trying to get the American people to vote for a presidential candidate who has 7 houses and a vice president who’s 7000 member town charged rape victims up to $1000 for their examinations. If by some chance McCain/Pailin do win, it will be by the skin of their teeth and with the help of illegal manipulation.
The Republicans are opposing edits to the $700Bn bailout of Wall Street directed at limiting executive pay and allowing courts to reduce payments for borrowers with a house in foreclosure. Is that really so unreasonable given the funk we’re in? Maybe they should require every CEO & member of upper management that needs to be bailed out to work 2500 hours a year in soup kitchens, rebuilding distressed neighborhoods & helping those living in tent cities. Let these wealthy honchos directly face the mess they made. Let them bathe in the sorrow they’ve put thousands of families in, and get their damn hands dirty. Maybe, just maybe, these ultra rich dimwits will have a remote sense of cause for their fellow human. Ahh, who’m I kidding, they sold their souls a long time ago…and they could give a rat’s ass about those not in the circles of the ultra elite.
