  •  Why no OUTRAGE here or on MSM for the "Wife" (0+ / 0-)

    As always, like the mafia, in politics we are always 'sensitive' about the spouse.

    As far as Fitz says his wife was on tape particiapting in the conspiracy.

    Yet no handcuffs, no 4500$ bail, only one picture (and a very flattering side shot where she looks away, I googled her, nothing flattering there)

    So why do we and the media always white wash this and leave the GUILTY "Soft" targets alone and go after the hard targets, on the most flimsiest and weakest speculation and accusations.

    One more food for thought, EVERYONE here hates Mark Penn, but not more than a handfull of folks went after his wife who stole almost 1 million from DNC donors:

    •  How can you dare compare a legit business... (0+ / 0-)

      ...venture with felonious conspiracy? Sure, Blago's wife should meet her time with the Grand Jury but she's not in the critical path of an essential Senate assignment.

      Your caparison, based on that article you provided, is absurd, ridiculous.  

      •  Hehe (0+ / 0-)

        Just love getting my digs in.

        And yea, I would put Penn right in Blago's crowd.

        And it is to a greater point that we need to clean up our party from the Penns to the Blago's.

        Funny how you defend both these women, man the double standard in our country is amazing.

        •  I'm not defending them... (0+ / 0-)

          I can simply understand why she may be on a slower track than him.

          Penn, yes, I'm defending wrt her offense which is to the sensibilities at worst.

          Let's clean up the Party of crooks and their enablers first, gender inclusive. Yes.

          As for people I neither like or respect, well, let's try...Penn's utter failure should be enough to keep him out of exposure. I'm just not big on purges.
