More On the Ethical DNA, and Getting the Word Out

By LK | September 6, 2008


Yes, I know, adopted son.  But the ethical DNA is passed down through the environment of the household.

And I still haven’t heard anyone connect the bank failure announced last night, a bank where McC’s son was a former board member, with the S & L crisis of the ’80’s in which McC himself was one of the Keating 5.  McC escaped prosecution but was reprimanded.

Corruption, it seems, runs in the family, and runs through the ticket.  So does bullying and misuse of power.

Reformers my ass.

If the shoe was on the other foot Rush and Hannity would be all over this.  Olbermann, Maddow, Schultz, Hartmann, and Rhodes don’t have their kinds of numbers, and they’re all  preaching to the converted anyway.  It’s Rush and Sean that get swing listeners through their ability to entertain with their bombastic pomposity , and they’re the ones that have the ability to move the swing voters to action.  The left has serious work on their radio presence post haste and post election.

The family McBanking connection was sent to Obama policy and speech writing HQ already, although it’s hard to see how they haven’t made the connection yet.  Now someone’s got to talk about it.

And there’s no way this falls under the “family’s off limits” policy, unless the economy of the nation and the ethics of the candidates are off limits as well.

On another note, the record’s out on iTunes and favorite songs are starting to surface.  Please post a review if you’re so inclined.  LK
