Wall Street's Favorite Whores

From "The Banksters Financing The Romney-Ryan Ticket Don't Want Anyone Regulating Their Predatory Agenda",  Down with Tyranny:

Facts matter. The Romney-Ryan campaign is based on distorting them, ignoring them and denying them. Thank God there are people like Barney Frank able and willing to call them on their lies. This year Wall Street has given Romney $16,394,969 (not counting untold tens of millions more in dark money funneled through right-wing PACs run by people like Karl Rove). By way of comparison, Wall Street has given Obama less than a third, $5,002,198.

And while we're on that idea of following the money, one way to gage which Member of Congress are the worst shills of Wall Street is to see whose PACs get the biggest Wall Street donations. These figures aren't contributions to campaigns; these are contributions from the banksters to the leadership PACs of their most devoted congressional servants with the intention of helping them build power. These are the dozen Members of Congress most beloved this cycle by the banksters:

Wall Street owns us all. They own Washington and they own Main Street. They own our state legislatures and they own our rural routes. Soon they'll own all our commons and they'll own our very souls.

Incidentally, the article's picture of the tea party's messiah, Grover Norquist, certainly gives pause. Is there absolutely no connection to the armory of dildos and the bottle of what appears to be salad dressing on the heater stand behind him, or is the guy kinkier than we ever imagined?

Yeah, I'm not sure what's going on in that picture!

Personally, my sense is that wingnuts aren't kinky in fun, interesting ways, but rather twisted in disgusting, repulsive ways - you know, the diaper guy kinda stuff? Ick.

People who spend lifetimes repressing healthy sexuality usually end up really warped sexually.

Anyway, that's my theory and I'm sticking to it (at least until a better one comes along!).
