political corruption- all that matters is who is doing it

watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRGow6IC3sM

The short film is a walk through the day in the life of Dan Rostenkowski circa 1980 or 1981 as he prepares to take over the powerful Ways and Means committee. Rostenkowski, or Rosty as he often went by, was plenty corrupt and actually lost his seat in 1994 over it and did a year or so in prison. But even if he was corrupt, Rosty seemed like a good guy with his sort of Jackie Gleason type persona.

Hillary Clinton is also somewhat corrupt and comes across as a total bitch. When Bill was president, she seemed way too willing to inject herself in the political process. During the 90s, she didn’t come across very well as opposed to someone like Rosalyn Carter who just seemed more likable and non-threatening. Watching her speak during speeches is like listening to nails on a chalkboard and it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what it is that rubs me the wrong way but something seems off. As a result, her corruption just seems worse.

This all kind of reminds me of one of Davis Aurini’s early videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7GO5pZgWOY
