Just Another Day in Politics

Ashley Alexandra Dupre of New Jersey aka "Kristen"- Spitzer's political nightmare.

The identity of the infamous call girl has been reported and her images are racing across the internet. This 22 year old woman has brought one of the biggest states in the union to a stand still. With Spitzer stepping down in a matter of days one has to wonder what else the government has on him. The New York Post has already reported that he has spent upwards of $80,000 on hookers over the past six years or so. The most bizarre element of this story however does not involve the disgraced governor himself but rather his wife. It has been reported that she was pleading with her adulterous spouse to remain in power and to get past this whole mess. What kind of a woman is this? Is she completely lacking all human emotion? She makes Mrs. Clinton look like Carol Brady.

Speaking of Hillary, Geraldine Ferraro got the campaign into some hot water with remarks the Obama crowd deems racist. She claimed the junior senator from Illinois has only seen the success he has because he is black, and the media is playing into this all. In fairness, she said the same comment about her VP run in 1984; claiming she only made it that far because she is a woman. This was not a racist comment and the Obama campaign is just using their favorite tactic once again. When a tough question or issue faces this man, the campaign always retreats to their ace in the hole; scream out "racism!" This man is unscrutinized by the media and by his opponents out of fear they will seem racist. It is the most unfair handicap in the political arena and is the sole reason Obama has reached the heights that he has. As a result of his dirty politics, Ferraro has resigned from Mrs. Clinton's campaign today.

Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Otis Moss III are preachers at Barack Obama's church in Illinois. They are both under fire for shady fund raising they organized during church ceremonies. Many eyebrows are being raised about where the collections for the overall church endowment are being spent; possibly directly to Obama's campaign. Both preachers have been televised during their sermons and are blatantly racist and openly intolerant of any political ideology besides Obama's. Ironic that liberals claim the GOP is guilty of politicking from the pulpit.

The Senator's church even bestowed their highest honor upon Louis Farrakhan, the head of the Nation of Islam: a shameless anti-semitic, homophobic, racist excuse for a human being.

Will Obama relinquish his membership to this church? Will he at least denounce his preachers' ravings and state his opposition to them?

Tough questions: I wouldn't hold my breath for an answer though.

It is amazing what a little power or a lot of power does to these women. They are willing to make themselves look like fools to the public while pretending none of this matters. My favorite line from Clinton when she faced something similiar was "I am not some Tammy Wynette stand by your man kind of woman" That should be their anthems that is exactly what they are. Treating the public like we are idiots and really believe none of this matters. It says a lot about someone's character that they would behave in this way. I don't want someone with such little character representing us.

Obama continues to get a free pass by the media. It will be interesting to see how long it is before he really starts getting asked some tough questions and has to start taking responsibilty for his previous comments and actions.
