“A criminal organization masquerading as a political party”

The phrase was coined by Michael Walsh to describe the Democratic party, and Kevin D. Williamson shows again why the definition is so apt in this post on corruption in New York and Illinois. A delicious sample:
In more civilized times, leaders with the records of Andrew Cuomo or Pat Quinn would go into retirement, tending to the vineyards at their villas in decent obscurity, far from the seat of power. That in our own time such miscreants endure and thrive is enough to make one nostalgic for the Roman practice of exile, if not for the Japanese practice of ritual disembowelment.

Hence my ongoing online characterization of this administration (everywhere I can) as the Obamafia. As far as I'm concerned, that's what today's Democratic Party is.

Not that I'm letting the D.C. Republlican Boehner wing (off the hook. He's probably doing the best he can to confront this aggressive leftist agenda of the present Democratic Party, but I don't think he's got the stones to do it in a decisive way. Boehner needs to go and we need an attack dog Gringrich style.

Every organisation may have one or two criminal types, but there is a tipping point when the crims start to dominate.
