DNC Spends Thousands on Baseball Bats, Slow Cars, Gasoline
Much ado has been made over the RNC and Michael Steele spending thousands on limos, jets and strip clubs. But little has been said about the DNC’s expenditures. In an ongoing effort to provide grossly unfair and chemically imbalanced coverage, Knifework.net decided to look at the other side’s books. And what we found was frightening.
$7,000 was spent over the summer to outfit SEIU members for peaceful counter-protests at townhall rallies across the country. Even though lead pipes were plentiful and could have been purchased for next to nothing, the DNC decided to provide state-of-the-art Louisville Sluggers.
Last year, the DNC, in conjunction with the Obama administration and Congress, spent $24,000 per every car purchased under the Cash for Clunkers program. But that pales in comparison to the whopping $600,000 spent on Henry Waxman’s fleet of Big Wheels. “Henry is a small man, in many different ways,” said DNC spokesthing Brad Woodhouse. “Plus, he likes lots of bright colors. He can’t pick just one. It was an absolute necessity.”
And just this month, the DNC spent a staggering $940 billion on gasoline. This was used not only to torch the Constitution, but also Democratic election hopes this November.
To get serious for a moment, many on the Right are calling for Steele’s head. If you donated money to the RNC and expected it to go to campaign ads, I can understand your frustration. But as Riehl World View points out, this is the game. And if you think the DNC doesn’t play the same one, you’re deluding yourself.
I’m all for holding politicians accountable for how they handle taxpayer money, but Michael Steele isn’t a lawmaker. He’s paid to get Republicans elected, and it takes money to do that. It doesn’t matter what you or I may think of Steele, tossing out your chairman 6 months before mid-terms is a disaster-in-waiting.
Maybe Steele does deserve the ax for all this. I don’t know. I haven’t paid a whole lot of attention to this story. I have more on my mind than who schmoozed who at a fancy strip club. But is seems to me that the Right is all to eager to eat its own nowadays. I suppose it stems from the scorn we received when Republicans were last in charge, coupled with our own dissatisfaction of the policies they enacted. I understand that. But we want to get the knives out every time one of ours is accused of something, often before we even know the details.
We have Republicans apologizing for racial slurs that were most likely never even uttered. It’s a bit ridiculous if you ask me. Do we think the left is going to somehow respect us more for groveling? Are they going to pat us on the back and open their ears to our ideas? No. We simply have to beat them on Election Day. There is no other alternative.
Did the Left scream for Chuck Rangel’s resignation for taking trips to the Caribbean with lobbyist money? Did they howl for Pelosi’s gavel when she and 15 other donkeys (plus 6 Republicans) spent $2,200 a day in Copenhagen? Let me ask you this…what does the Left ever apologize for?
Buck the fuck up, Republicans.
