News has been coming fast and furious this week. I'll lump some together here for the sake of brevity.
Louis DeNaples was indicted for perjury. The licensee of the Mount Airy Resort and Casino has been accused of lying about his connections to the mob. None of this seemed to dismay the state gambling commission however. I was shocked when they awarded him a slots license and now they have lost any credibility.
Rudy Giuliani, as expected, dropped out and endorsed John McCain. Rudy will be remembered for the worst ever strategy by a front runner.
There's a lot of debate about where John Edwards' supporters will go. If you were an Edwards person who are you supporting now, Obama or Clinton?
The Republican presidential candidates keep claiming America has the best health care system in the world. Wrong. We're actually ranked quite low and beneath every western civilized country with a single payer, universal system. What's more we pay double per capita for our substandard care. It's nothing to brag about and it's time they began using facts instead of fiction if anyone is to take anything they say seriously.
Michael Mukasey refused to say much about water boarding yesterday other than we aren't doing it anymore. How afraid is this Administration of war crimes and impeachment for their misconduct? Plenty. So far there's little difference between Mukasey and Gonzales on these issues. Neither one is willing to testify truthfully and completely to Congress.
Cyril Wecht ought to be embarrassed by the testimony to his monstrous ego at his trial. The truth is though many public servants use their staff for improper work. Mary Beth Buchanan, the US Attorney prosecuting Wecht had her staff write her speeches given to the Federalist Society and Congressman Tim Murphy had his government staff perform campaign work in 2006. When are they being arrested?
