Into the Volcano; Gov. Bill Richardson named one of America's worst

This is another one of those just too rich situations that tends to make an old conservative want to gloat, but knowing that would be unseemly, I'll simply pass it along to you with a less unseemly, Cheshire Cat grin.

As some readers will notice, I have posted here previously on the corruption and malfeasance of New Mexico governor and former Democrat presidential candidate, Bill Richardson. Big Bill, who has claimed bodaciously and untruthfully that he was once selected to play pro baseball, has now garnered for himself the dubious distinction of actually being selected as one of America's eleven worst governors by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW. What makes Bill's placement on this dishonor role so interesting is the company he's keeping. Of the eleven deemed worst by CREW, all are Republicans except Bill and, if you can possibly imagine it, David Paterson of New York.

This watchdog organization claims to be non-partisan but in looking through the bios on Crew's crew, it becomes readily apparent that much of their experience comes from working on the left side of the aisle in Congress. For instance, Executive Director, Melanie Sloan, has worked for John Conyers, Charles Schumer and Joe Biden. Others have worked for Jeff Merkley and Tom Harkin, and one for governor, Deval Patrick. The ACLU is represented in there as well. There is not a single Republican or Blue Dog Democrat mentioned as an employer in any of those work histories.

(UPDATE: Today's Albuquerque Journal, itself no bastion of conservative thought, has a front page article (subscription required) confirming that CREW is most definitely a left-wing organization with financial backing from SEIU among other über-liberal sources.)

With the list including some truly standout Republican governors like Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Rick Perry of Texas and Haley Barbour of Mississippi, it is impossible not to question the criteria used in the selection process. Not to say there aren't some Republicans who deserve to be there, like Mark Sanford with his loony moral bankruptcy and Arnold Schwarznegger with his looming California bankruptcy.

But, considering the selectors, you have to see that this is nothing more than a liberal hatchet job; thus my contention that for New Mexicans this is just too rich. The Libs at CREW had to throw in a couple of Democrats to put a non-partisanship face on their whack job, so who did they see as the expendable worst of the Democrat herd mulling around in that cattle pen leading into the November slaughterhouse? How about an incompetent, blind, black political hack who obtained office solely because he was blind, black and a hack?

Next, seeking serious incompetence and corruption, the CREW liberals selected a supposedly charismatic Semi-Hispanic, political carpetbagger, who, like another semi-minority, political carpetbagger, Barack Obama, has long exploited his minority status to achieve political power. And just as Obama is doing to the nation as a whole, Big Bill has driven New Mexico to economic disaster in less than eight years with similar policies.

Yeah, that's rich. That New Mexico's governor, a former Democrat presidential candidate is so woefully bad, such a totally corrupt, dismal failure that the Democrat Party, led by our supposedly Hawaiian-born president, and a supportive liberal organization like CREW feel comfortable doing a Polynesian pitch of  Big Bill, one of their former leading lights, into the political volcano as a pre-November sacrifice. Again, folks, that is just too rich.

You don't suppose they picked Big Bill to appease the gods of opinion because he was a virgin, do ya?

Nah, not after the way he's totally screwed New Mexico.
