Krusty for US Attorney
I know you just spit up your hot chocolate when you read that, but I’m not joking. If I assert myself, go to law school, and pass the bar before the next Republican is sworn in as President, it could be a definite possibility, especially if I got onboard with the winning candidate early on. You know the game, its pay to play baby!
You have probably heard by now that Gordon Fischer is campaigning to be the next US Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa. If you are a long time reader of this blog, you will remember that we spent the early days debunking Gordon’s attempts to tie our honorable Republicans like Tom Latham and Steve King to any national scandal possible. You also might remember Gordon’s countless posts about alleged push polls too. But my favorite time was when he took his Alaskan vacation which provided the perfect opportunity to expose him as the political hack he really is.
Now my friend Gordon, who I do like by the way, wants to be US Attorney. Do we really want a political operative, a guy who has run the day to day operations of the Iowa Democrat Party, who obviously has a political bias, to serve in such a highly regarded capacity? I mean he spent considerable time tussling with an anonymous blogger. I would think a US Attorney candidate would be above such things, and I also think it is a bit tacky to actively campaign for the job anyway.
The other thing that concerns me is that we already have an Iowa Attorney General who only focuses on filing lawsuits against businesses. Would Gordon use his cool looking badge to come after a particular anonymous blogger who disagrees with him, and focus on driving business out of the state like his buddy Tom Miller has?
Ab better question to ponder might be, how would Gordon have dealt with the Marshalltown immigration raid or the CIETC scandal?
Look there is one thing I know, I would make a terrible US attorney because I’m a political hack. If Gordon has dreamed of being named US Attorney since birth, than he made some bad career choices in my opinion. Instead of running a political party and spewing political venom on his blog, he should have settled on being active in the Democrat Party in a different, less public way or ran for office.
Don’t make me go all Gopal on you Gordon…
