Chris Dodd Was Informed of Special VIP Status Regarding Countrywide Loan, But Claims He Never Suspected That Gave Him a Special Rate

Hysterical. He claims he thought it was just a "courtesy thing," whatever that means, but he seems to suggest that he thought Countrywide just called him a "VIP" to be nice to him but that this status gave him no special beneifts whatsoever.

Okay. Just like being a Frequent Flier on an airline. You get absolutely no benefits or sky miles or price breaks or special amenities for being a Frequent Flier; you just get to call yourself a Frequent Flier.

It's just so awesome to lord it over everyone that you're a Frequent Flier. That's where all the benefit comes from -- recognition.

Thanks to CJ.

Self-Parody: Roland Martin descends to hitherto unknown depths to spin the Democrats out of this -- Admit It, Wouldn't We All Like to be VIPs?

Why yes, we all would. But we'd also all like to be rich and make "obscene profits" on oil, which has never before been suggested by a liberal as a reason not to tax the rich or tax "obscene profits."

Futhermore, while we'd all like to be Senators and we'd all like super-cheap VIP mortgages, the fact of our wishing doesn't suspend the normal rule preventing Senators from taking anything or any special deal. Remember, under the supposedly tight new ethics rules, a Senator isn't supposed to accept free baseball tickets.

And yet Roland Martin is claiming that just because we'd all like to have people giving us money and gifts and special deals to curry favor with us, we should give Dodd, Conrad, and the rest a break on this.

You know what I'd really like to have done?

I'd really like to have outed the fact that Joe Wilson was a partisan hack put on a sensitive mission by his partisan hack wife with the specific goal of coming back with a partisan hack conclusion to be fed to partisan hack writers like the NYT's Nicholas Kristof.

But I don't think Roland Martin would argue that just because I'd have loved to have done that, that Scooter Libby should never have been investigated or prosecuted.

Or would he?

Stupid fucks. They're not even hiding it anymore. Except to the extent they'll lie to your fucking face if you ask them about it directly.

Thanks to Slublog.
