    I hear it was Rahm Emanuel who offered Joe Sestak a job. This offense carries a sentence of 1 year in prison. I hope it was Emanuel and I hope he does time for it.

    While it certainly seems like this violates the letter of the law, it doesn't seem all that strange. When Reagan ran against Bush for the Republican nomination in 1980, Reagan got Bush to back him by offering him the VP slot on the ticket. Technically, Reagan wasn't offering him a job but it seems very similar.

    false premises-the ones that the Clinton administration were proclaiming loudly and longly for several years?

    do you understand the concept of "burden of proof"

    the burden was on Saddam Insane to prove he did not have WMD.

    he didn't

    he lost

    end of story

    He could not offer it without Obama's approval. They should both be investigated.

    It's foul - bad form no matter which side of the political ticket does it - but I doubt if much comes of this. Even if it were Rahm Emmanual, odds are he'd quietly pay the fine(s) and be done with it.

    It's f'd up, but that's politics for you...strong-arm tactics and corruption at every turn.
