Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Quote of the day, “We don’t need no stinkin’ rules!” edition

From Alcee Hastings (D-FL), member of the House Rules Committee:

Rep. Alcee Hastings (D) Florida, a member of the House Rules Committee, made one of those gaffes that is defined as speaking the truth when he really ought not to have. Hastings articulated the   approach the Democrats are taking for health care reform.

There ain’t no rules here, we’re trying to accomplish something. . . .All this talk about rules. . . .When the deal goes down . . . we make ’em up as we go along.”

John at Powerline gives a refresher on Hastings, if you didn’t already know:

Hastings was once a federal judge, but he was impeached–it is hard to articulate what a difficult, cumbersome process that is–because he solicited bribes from criminal defendants. That is, he approached the criminals and told them that he would let them off if they paid him. That’s a little extreme, even for a Democrat. Hastings’ efforts to make himself rich in this criminal fashion came to light and he was investigated. He responded to the investigation by committing perjury.

As a result of his multiple crimes, Hastings was removed as a federal judge by the United States Senate, one of the few times in history that has happened. Here is the really astonishing thing: instead of going to jail, Alcee Hastings went to Congress! Democratic voters were not in the least concerned that he is a criminal of the most verminous sort. On the contrary, they elected him to represent them in Florida’s 23rd Congressional District! That, really, tells you all you need to know about the depravity to which the Democratic Party has sunk.

The last refuge for scoundrels?  Why, the Democrat Party, of course!

  1. I’m surprise the Marxist didn’t give Hastings a cabinet position. He certainly has all the qualifications.
