#1 If the House won't have him, he could always join the UN.

#2 The MSM will portray Menendez as a victim and he will run for President as a Donk hero.
Think Jon Corzine who misplaced hundreds of millions of his clients funds at M F Global. He got a free pass.

#3 he could always join the UN.
Or the Secret Service.

#4 Isn't he the screwball donk who gave the Hildebeast that shameless, bootlicking introduction at the Benghazi ARB (Accountability Review Board) last week ?

#6 Somehow Menendez was able to kick the can down the road until after the elections. Someone, cough, cough, such as BHO didn't want blowback.

#7 ICE also pulled their expulsion of an illegal alien sex-offender Menendez-campaign volunteer til after the election. No corruption here

#8 The quote does originate from Louisiana, but Edwards (running against Klan/Nazi candidate David Duke, his supporters actually had bumper stickers proclaiming: "Vote for the crook - It's important" and it was) was merely quoting an earlier and more prominent demogogue, Huey Long (who may have stolen the quote from someone even earlier and more obscure).

#9 I had that bumper sticker....
Edwin was crooked, but in a fairly benign way, especially compared with today's politicians.

#10 ABC's This Week had Senator Menendez on its program. Not one question about the FBI inquiry.

#11 And that surprises you, Pappy?
any thing with a D after its name gets a apass; others, notsomuch.

#12 (Not a rhetorical question: I'm curious) Why is the FBI involved? I didn't think we had any jurisdiction in the Dominican Republic.
