Swearingen for Senate

Hey, this is fun. Senator Santorum has introduced a bill that would prohibit federal meteorologists from competing with companies such as AccuWeather and The Weather Channel. That is, no more free National Weather Service website where you could, oh, get the service of finding out the weather. Nationally. Which would seem to be their territory.

Yes, I know you paid for that National Weather Service info with your tax dollars. But no, you can't have access to it. Sen. Santorum says "Your money doesn't count. Just because you paid for it, you don't have any right to it. The government is not here to serve you."

You see, Santorum received $4,000 in campaign contribution from the Accuweather humans. (Thanks Raw Story). Coincidence? Wellll, he was the only Senator the Executive Vice President of AccuWeather contributed to. So draw your own conclusions.

But that's not the really great part of the story.

They bought a Senator for four thousand dollars. They bought a Senator for less than a big-screen TV. In the old days, you'd have to pony up fifty to a hundred grand to buy a Senator. But now, you can buy Rick Santorum's vote in the upper chamber of America's democracy WHOLESALE.

Making corruption accessible to the working man -- bravo, sirrah, bravo. Hey, I got a tax refund of a couple grand coming, Rick, can I get a goddam holiday named after me?

Al Swearingen for Senate. He'd set the joint right.

I'm really surprised you didn't make a pun with his name, unless I missed it.

Senator Swearingen: With his right hand on a garage-sale Bible, he vows to do the work of God and hides the sky.

Wow. I'm really slow.

They need delete buttons around here.

More like... Senator InSanitorium?
