Sestak: A feeble coverup that no-one believes

The lies of the coverup are at least as bad as the corruption that is being covered up

(The bottom half of the cartoon is a reference to Richard Nixon)

Last Friday, after months of silence regarding a potential White House job offer for Rep. Joe Sestak, D-Pa., if he did not run in the Pennsylvania Senate primary against Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa., White House Counsel Robert F. Bauer released a memo addressing the events.

Titled, "Review of Discussions Relating to Congressman Sestak," the memo noted the "White House staff did not discuss these options with Congressman Sestak. The White House Chief of Staff enlisted the support of former President Clinton, who agreed to raise with Congressman Sestak options of service on a Presidential or other Senior Executive Branch Advisory Board. Congressman Sestak declined the suggested alternatives, remaining committed to his Senate Candidacy."

The short version: We did nothing wrong, we asked the former president to help, and the job offered would have been unpaid. The underlying message, "Trust us, we are transparent."

This past weekend, on "Fox News Sunday," Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., called for a federal investigation. "They're now talking about a job that President Clinton himself should have known Sestak couldn't take," he said. "It's the reason the FBI needs to investigate this. An independent -- independent from me, independent from the president -- needs to investigate and get to the bottom of this and -- so we can all move on."

  1. You know it stinks when even some in the media are asking questions and even talking about it. Especially since so many in the media took up the hobby of spit-polishing zeros ass.

  2. Amen MK, amen.

    It may be too late but the media are finally starting to criticize Obama.

    However I think this is more a personal revenge thing than professional duty. Obama & his minions have routinely treated the press with open contempt, which is completely deserved considering the media's ass polishing routine of the past 2 1/2 years. Now the media is beginning to take it personally as it were and thus the criticism of the past few weeks.

  3. Yeah i've noticed a change of attitude in the miserable bastards, but the real test is still to come. My feeling is that they'll get right back to ass-polishing at election time.

    They hate America too much.
