politics, hypocrisy and meanness in public affairs, alligators, anti-empire-ism, occasional personal stuff

Truly, one cannot make this stuff up:

As the names of those not running against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) continue to pile up, one Republican and former Bear Stearns executive announced today that he will enter the race.
David Malpass was the chief economist at Bear Stearns from 2001 until its collapse 2008. He also served during the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations, in the Treasury and State departments and also as a congressional staffer.
In his announcement today, during which he was accompanied by Steve Forbes, Malpass called Gillibrand the "unelected occupant" of the Senate seat.
"She's chosen at every step to spend to spend New Yorkers' hard-earned taxes without setting any limits or boundaries," Malpass said.[TPM]
Once again, I have to ask, "Who are these guys? Have they NO SHAME?"
