True confession: I have always been of the mind that having a Attorney General and Auditor from the minority party is not a bad thing in a two-party system. I always felt it kept balance in the equation by keeping the Majority honest.
That’s why – even as a Republican – I thought Kathleen Kane was a good choice for Pennsylvania’s Attorney General. I may have even voted for her, although that would have been based further on her track record as an Assistant DA in Lackawanna County.
Seems I was terribly wrong about her. She has turned out to be both weak and way beyond partisan!
Last week she dumped a years-long investigation into political corruption and reporting requirements that has all the telltale signs of partisan political protectionism veiled by insidious implications of racism that are not holding up to even the barest of scrutiny from the media. Not one individual cited as a source for such an egregious accusation will stand up and corroborate the charge.
Why was it “racist”? Well, because all of those ensnared were Democrats from Philadelphia … duh!
And if that wasn’t bad enough, Kane resorted to labeling anyone who criticized her decision as “sexist”!
Whoa … Something just clicked!
Did Kane get help with her statement from The White House?!?
Think about it … Nothing they get wrong is ever their fault. Not the unpopularity of the poorly sold Affordable Care Act, not the Three Stooges rollout of healthcare.gov, not failed red lines in Syria, and certainly not the Crimea!
Either it’s President George W. Bush’s fault or it’s blamed on every social disorder known to man … racism, bullying (Republicans), income inequality, global warming/cooling/wetting/drying … (OK, make it Climate Change!) … etc., etc.
Sexism? Guess we’ll have to wait for Hillary “What difference – at this point – does it make?!?” Clinton. But that excuse will be close at hand, believe me!
Well, at least Kathleen Kane didn’t blame it on Putin!
For my part, I’m sorry I got this one wrong. I only wish I had someone else to blame …
