. . . the other white meat.
Jeanette Borges has written an open letter to both GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, who is the House Ethics Committee Chairman, and the press about “the newly elected Tea Party candidates that just gave away billions in defense pork.” She exhorts all who read her letter to “mobilize write, call and make some noise. These people have made fools of us. It is heartbreaking.”
Yeah, I’m cryin’.
One of “these people” is Bobby Schilling.
Go to the link to read her hilarious emotionally charged, over-the-top, frothing diatribe and you will discover she is no TEA Party supporter, but a leftwing anti-war agitator.
Some juicy quotes:
“This has got to be illegal.”
“This is in your face blatant corruption.”
Bobby Schilling will never reach the heights of defense corruption that Democrats like Jack Murtha attained—but whatever.
The fact that she sent a copy of this letter to Jon Stewart and the New York Times gives the game away.
It’s worth noting that Schilling has publicly stated that not all pork is bad and one of the few constitutional responsibilities of the federal government is national defense.
So Bobby sponsored a bill with Iowegian leftwinger Rep. Loebsack to promote the Rock Island Arsenal—so what?
Schilling hasn’t asked to be given a fork and a spoon, but looking out for his district is in no way “blatant corruption” or “illegal”—unless, according to Borges, a Republican does it.
