As I’ve mentioned before it seems that all of Jack Abramoff’s old scandal buddies are getting back into the game. Patrick Pizzella, Dick Armey, Matt Kibbe and others are running the Tea Bagger movement from their puppet master perches on K Street and the Avenues of power inside the DC beltway. JD Hayworth, Richard Pombo and others are running for office again.
Could Jack’s core cadre of grifters be far behind. Of course not.
Reed is a creation of Abramoff. Jack plucked the young plagiarist from Georgia decades ago and set him up in DC. The grifters have been working together ever since. Reed’s greed for payoffs became so intense that at one point Abramoff and fellow co-conspirator Micheal Scanlon were complaining about Ralph.
Jack told Mike:
And then there is that system of human trafficking, forced abortions and force prostitution in the Western Pacific that Ralph, Jack and the gang protected in exchange for cash. I hope the FSM gives these weasels what they deserve when their number comes up.
But things are what they are and so: yes, of course Reed will run for Congress. He’ll tell the rubes he is a “Christian” and the fools will support this grifter with an ice cream face. The only good thing one could say about Congressman Reed is that you could file an ethics complaint against him the moment he is sworn in.
Regardless of the drawbacks, I’m sure this is good news for John McCain.
