Corruption Daily Round-Up 11-17


Crypt-Keeper Alert - I Bet He's No Fan of Term Limits
At midnight tonight, God willing, Senator Byrd will become the longest-serving congressman ever. I'd forgotten that he's president pro tempore of the Senate, and thus third in line for the presidency. But considering that he turns 92 on Friday...
I'm a big fan of term limits, especially every time I think of Sen. Byrd. As I point out in my Senate Crypt-Keeper post (here and above), Sen. Byrd has been in Congres since January 3, 1959 aka 50 years. According to this website here based on the Annual Estimates of the Resident Population by Sex and Five-Year Age Groups for the United States, 60% of the US population had NOT BEEN BORN when Sen. Byrd took office. That's just wrong.

Amnesty For Illegals Protester's Attack Tea Party Protesters

From Instapundit -
THESE MUST HAVE BEEN THE ONES WITHOUT GUNS: Video: Tea Party Protesters Attacked, Beaten by ANSWER Thugs. From the comments: “I am sure that Eric Holder will act swiftly – just like he has in St. Louis.”

UPDATE: Power Line: “We conservatives have long talked about our willingness to fight for freedom. In a sense, that’s generally been metaphorical, especially when talking about domestic rather than foreign enemies. With the far left now on the march, however, it isn’t metaphorical any more. It’s just one more sign of the Age of Obama–fighting in the streets, as the extreme Left has been empowered as never before.” Cram the video down their throats. Figuratively, this time.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader Joe Barnes: “Of course, this would be a racist hate crime if the situation in Ft. Lauderdale had been reversed. It would be all over the MSM nonstop. Olbermann’s head would explode. The violence and the resort to foul name calling (’teabaggers’) demonstrates the complete moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the left. I expect more of this, particularly since there will be no prosecution of these thugs.” You know, the Fred Phelps gang seems to manage to file a lot of lucrative lawsuits over the violent reactions of those they protest against, with the help of on-the-scene video. That’s their real business, by some accounts. Perhaps the Tea Party movement ought to try the same. It shouldn’t be all that hard to identify the folks involved and sue them, and the organizations they’re affiliated with. It would be nice if some friendly public interest lawyers would help out.
