Steve Benen supplies the phrase to match “Cornhusker Kickback.” I move we make it official.
The DNC video Steve links to is pretty lame. It mentions “politics” but not “earmarks” or “pork” or “shakedown” or “extortion” or “corruption.” Time for all of us to get angry, folks. And though I like the President’s generally cool demeanor, that includes him. On this one, and on the student loan racket, he needs to show some righteous indignation.
But he can’t do it alone. He needs help from other Democratic elected officials, from the media, and from you. Start hitting your favorite media websites with angry comments. Write letters to the editor. If you’re in Alabama, or know someone who is, organize a demonstration outside one of Shelby’s offices.
All of which reminds me: I have yet to see anything from OFA on this. Is someone asleep at the switch, or are they getting together something powerful?
