Republican twins separated at birth?

December 20th, 2013

We question whether Idaho Republican John McGee and Floridian Republican Trey Radel had the same birth parents. It seems as if the Idaho Republican and Florida Republican are conjoined twins separated at birth. Arrogance, brutish selfishness, hubris, a belief that laws and ethics do not apply to nouveau aristocrats in the political “ruling” class…it seems to be genetic.

So too is the apparent belief that they can engage in whatever they will…up to the point of getting caught…and then some claptrap pretended contriteness is supposed to suffice by way of excuse. And if not, then appeal to the ignorance of bleating partisanship to preserve their satrap office. You gotta keep me, because of those dastardly Democrats!”  Sans difference, we say.

We’ll not belabor Mr. McGee’s drunken spree behind the wheel of a stolen vehicle here in Idaho. But consider the new disgusting deflections of his fellow Republican, Mr. Radel of Florida. Mr. Radel was recently busted for a $250 cocaine transaction…which remains illegal however he now styles it.

Now that he’s been nabbed by drug enforcement, out of Mr. Radel comes a pouring partisan litany.  Apparently he hopes it passes for a wink and a nod, and will keep him ensconced in the US House of Representatives. Says Mr. Radel: I believe when government expands it becomes a political tool meant to oppress.” Indeed?

So, Mr. Radel is basically saying that he has a right to abuse cocaine…“a personal issue on personal time” while he represents Florida in Washington DC?  Street thugs everywhere have claimed as much.  Or is Mr. Radel saying that he, being a US Representative, is immune to the common law? Or, is the scapegoat government (favorite tool of unethical Republicans everywhere) somehow more “oppressive” now that it busted him for coke? How dare it?…Personal liberty, is that it?

What Mr. Radel arrogantly proffers implies that he thinks he merits a criminal pass. It’s all about Mr. Radel…to Mr. Radel. As Fox News reported, Mr. Radel said in a phony mea culpa: I love what I do and I’m going to return to what I do, what you sent me to do in Washington D.C., which is working for you and your family while I relish mine.” Relish, says he. “No one — no one will take away my passion.”I, me, my—the one thing that Mr. Radel does not mention in his litany of excuses is honor.

Mr. Radel is hypocrisy incarnate; but then again, he is a Republican. And it is genetic.

Now that he claims to have “only” abused cocaine “a handful of times” somehow Mr. Radel’s Republican affiliation warrants granting a waiver on ethics and dismissal of the coke bust? Clinton claimed as little.  We’re more than incredulous.

Mr. Radel says he’s going to “redouble” his efforts in the US House of Representatives, “with a clearer focus and a stronger mind”. Uh-huh. Cocaine, we are told, gives the addict that impression. Regardless, his being the self professed champion of cuts to sheep-farm subsidies is so vital a mission to our national interests that Americans should grant Mr. Radel a waiver on his criminal behavior?

Speaking of sheep, apparently, like John McGee proved in Idaho, the Florida Republican establishment only intends to bleat regarding Mr. Radel’s abuse of office…he has that Republican sheepskin drawn up over him, after all.  So, the canines are simply to be ignored.

Yet if they are to apply at all, then high crimes and misdemeanors applies to Republican as well as any other...or not at all. And so long as Republicans do not expel and incarcerate Mr. Radel, that sound we hear out on the moors is nothing more than bleating hypocrisy, and nothing less. And, Mr. Radel is nothing other than yet another dishonorable Republican wolf hiding beneath the fleece of pretended patriotism.  Seems to us, George Washington warned about those.

    Editor: To take things truly into the theatre of the absurd, news reports out yesterday 6 January 14 indicate that Mr. Radel has hired an “ethics lawyer”…something of a contradiction in terms. However, it appears the Republican is attempting to hold on to his seat, and has hired a D.C. legal gun to clear up that cocaine ethics problem. To lessen the damage to his public reputation, Mr. Radel is now downplaying the cocaine, and spinning his ” personal issues” as being caused by alcohol. Blame it on alcohol. Presumably, this justifies it, in a Billy Carter or Tony Rodham type of way.
