A New York state of mind

I’m shocked, shocked that there are dirty pols in New York:

It’s a stunning and wide-ranging public corruption scandal.

Six highly-placed politicians are accused of using bribery to rig this year’s New York City mayoral race.

There were three distinct parts to the public corruption and bribery scandal, but in all three money flowed freely and, at times, city and state funds — your tax dollars — paid the freight…

Stunning or stunning that the perps stupid enough to commit such a crime? (Consider if you will, Elliot Spitzer, AKA Client Number Nine or his clue-bag and similarly zipper-cased replacement.)

And there’s an irony near-miss from the U.S. attorney:

“The charges we unsealed today demonstrate once again that a ‘show me the money’ culture seems to pervade every level of New York government,” U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said.

Right, Preet: show me the money only pervades every level of New York government. After all, we all know such a thing could never happen at the federal level.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
