I don’t understand the rallying around Jensen

March 13th, 2006

OK.

So maybe Scott Jensen didn’t think it was a crime.

And maybe everyone else was doing it.

But where’s the outrage that our taxes were being used by politicians to keep themselves in office?

A few weeks ago, best viagra ampoule Charlie Sykes had a pitch perfect post where he cited an email from one of his listeners:

Remember the same folks who are so aghast that taxpayer money was used in campaigns will be the first ones to demand that taxpayer money be used to pay for campaigns

Only they won’t call it “corruption” anymore

They will call it “public financing

What a great point.

But doesn’t that cut both ways?

If you don’t believe in publicly-financed elections (as most Conservatives do not), how the hell can you justify what Jensen and the rest were doing?
