“Go, Mazine (sic) and Nancy. Who listens to professional character assassins such as Malkin? Isn’t Malkin a modern deriviative of Maulkin, one of Macbeth’s witch’s evil associates? Seems like something evil reeks everytime I click on one of these weird missives.”
That according to John Welsh, one of my readers.
We seem to have becme a nation that says its OK to respond to truth with personal attacks and character assassination.
We are too quick to holler racism when the news is color-blind and Barack promised a post-racial world.
We have come to accept lies, corruption and those that break the law. If you do evil: come back in a few weeks and we’ll forgive.

Do you think Nancy Pelosi will investigate her California pal Maxine Waters for conflict of interest? There is still an ethics panel in the House, isn’t there?
When Rep. Barney Frank was looking to aid a Boston-based lender last fall, the Massachusetts Democrat urged Maxine Waters, a colleague on the House Financial Services Committee, to “stay out of it,” he says.
The reason: Ms. Waters, a longtime congresswoman from California, had close ties to the minority-owned institution, OneUnited Bank.

Last fall, she helped secure the bank a meeting with Treasury officials.
