Judicial Watch Announces List of Washington’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” for 2007
What a surprise to see so many presidential candidates on this list! Whatever can be the matter?
What's with this Judicial Watch crowd? Well, they seem to be lawyers. And they plainly state that they are "conservative," whatever the heck that means. In any case, they named Hillary Clinton the most corrupt politician in the United States in 2007. No surprise. But what we find curious is this item in which they implicate Dick Cheney in the award of a $7 billion no-bid contract to Halliburton. Why doesn't Dick get a mention in the top ten? Why mention Dick at all?
Or is it they are only mentioning corrupt politicians with a political future? No, couldn't be, there's Larry Craig. Now, he's been called lots of things, but corrupt? Hardly. Well, certainly not as corrupt as Dick Cheney. After all, how many billions can you misappropriate in ten minutes in a public bathroom?
Now, don't get us wrong. We like to see corruption exposed. It's valuable work these guys are doing. And they seem not to have a strictly party-based agenda, which is refreshing. But this top ten seems to be weighted in a certain direction...
P.S. We don't like the logo. Sorry guys.
