Did They Mean That?

Every now and then as I contemplate one thing or another, like how the White Sox can look so good one day and suck so badly the next or what UAB was thinking when they hired their basketball coach, I come up with some brain worm that just hangs around for a while.

Well, here's the latest. What is Dennis Hastert thinking? I don't think the authors of the constitution had William Jefferson in mind when they came up with their separation of powers idea. They were probably thinking back to how it was in England and how they could protect against such things in the new country. Probably. I seriously doubt if they were thinking of prohibiting a legal search of a Congressman's office when a proper warrant had been issued with probable cause. I doubt they were considering the possibility of $100,000 bribes being captured on videotape given the technology available in the 1700's.

At any rate, do you think Hastert may show any outrage at the $100,000 bribe being accepted and most of it being found in Jefferson's freezer (obviously, he's an intellectual giant.)? I know it isn't politically correct to speak harshly of a Democrat, especially since everyone thought all the crooks were with the GOP, but this one's on tape. It's unfortunate he's from Louisiana. It's unfortunate that he's black. But, it's really unfortunate that he got caught on video. Quit whining about the search. Whine about the crook.

Just a thought.

Hastert is no Newt Gingrich.

No, he's not. But, have you listened to Newt lately?

I keep hearing him on Hannity and on Fox news. I'm not always in agreement with him, but he's probably the best on the scene right now, and he knows how to mix it up.

He's a great speaker. Very charismatic.
