Democrats Stealing Vote For The Clown Franken

I'm shocked! Shocked, I tell you.

Al Franken gets boosts in Minn. Senate recount
"It would be unjust and disrespectful to those voters not to count those votes," said Judge Edward Cleary, one of four who sit with Democratic Secretary of State Mark Ritchie on the state board.

The board acted after receiving a legal opinion from the office of Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson, a Democrat, that the missing absentee ballots should be counted.

If this fails, I am sure they can start counting more based on how they think voters intended to vote. If the voters were still alive.

The Definition Of Is Is? Lies Part II

Via Hot Air

Billy Bubba Clinton set the tone with his famous "is" question/statement. Obama is following up with "contact" being something other than contact with Blagojevich about selling Obama's senate seat.

Both cases have created a stain and somebody has to go under the bus!

Barney Frank: Auto Bailout A Lie

The intervention by the government that shouldn't be is not what it shouldn't be. Really. At least Barney is honest about being dishonest.

This bailout is payola for the thug foots of the Democrat Party, the unions.

Barney Frank On Auto Bailouts
"No. We’re not propping up companies. That’s your mistake," he tells Stahl, who had asked him about taxpayer money going to prop up companies that had made bad decisions. "We’re propping up individuals. The world doesn't consist of companies. The world is people. The country is people."

When Stahl points out that Frank is then talking about welfare, he responds, "Yeah, I’m for welfare. You’re not? Are you for letting people starve?"

Now maybe someone will be honest and admit that "card check" is not about fairness, but about taking away private ballots so the unions know which voters to threaten and bully when unions are rejected by workers.

USA Corruption By State Conviction Rates

USA has a great tool to find out corruption in your state.

In the story they state that North Dakota is the most corrupt, but it is based on a formula of per 100,000 population and doesn't really address how adept and aggressive the state is in rooting out corruption

Below is Illinois and Ohio and surrounding states

Ohio - 547 convictions
Illinois - 502 convictions
Indiana - 123 convictions
Michigan - 215 convictions
Pennsylvania - 555 convictions
Kentucky - 242 convictions
West Virginia - 74 convictions

Michigan and West Virginia seem kinda low, but it is interesting that Ohio has more convictions than Illinois.

Is Ohio better at rooting out corruption or does Illinois just have smarter and more experienced criminals in office that can avoid indictment? I would assume that Illinois could convict over a thousand just from the Chicago - Gary corridor. Maybe the judges are on the take as well.
