Morning Joe has Rep. Paul Ryan of Minnesota as a guest today. He was denouncing crony capitalism. Who is his second biggest contributor of campaign cash? Goldman Sachs. "Securities and investment" is the second biggest industry source of money contributions. Crony capitalists are among his biggest contributors and we're supposed to believe he will rein them in. Hah!
The bloviators on the show are saying nothing to challenge the guy on this. He's still on. With all their Blackberries and laptops, they could have fact checked this lying piece of crap. I did.
No one in public office anywhere deserves to be re-elected. The standard of truth in American politics is -- "Say whatever you like. The media will only challenge you on something if there's sex involved."
