I'm a Democrat & I Approve of Drunk DAs

Hacker: He’ll have to resign.
Sir Humphrey: Alas, yes.
James Hacker: What will hap­pen to him?
Sir Humphrey Appleby: Well, I gather he was as drunk as a lord. So, after a dis­creet inter­val, they’ll prob­a­bly make him one.

While Pow­er­line sug­gests con­ser­v­a­tives should rally around Rick Perry after his indict­ment for abuse of power

Con­ser­v­a­tives should respond to this indict­ment by ral­ly­ing around Perry. The indict­ment is a bad joke, intended sim­ply to gen­er­ate neg­a­tive pub­lic­ity. As with the bogus DeLay indict­ment from the same source, years may go by before it is finally proved base­less. In the mean­time, con­ser­v­a­tives should stand behind Perry and denounce the politically-​motivated machi­na­tions of Texas Democrats.

I have to disagree.

After all how DARE the Gov­er­nor of Texas sug­gest that some­thing has harm­less as this:

or this


is grounds for res­ig­na­tion for a pub­lic offi­cial entrusted with enforc­ing our laws, includ­ing those on drunk driving.

It’s a clear cut case of dis­crim­i­na­tion against the sobri­ety chal­lenged. Per­haps in addi­tion to the indict­ment of Rick Perry for “coer­cive use of a veto” a law­suit under the Amer­i­cans with Dis­abil­i­ties Act might be in order as well!

All kid­ding aside in a world where the comic cul­ture was not a wholly owned sub­sidiary of the Demo­c­rat party such a move would not be con­tem­plated sim­ply for the Sat­ur­day Night Live sketches it would pro­duce, but with their low info voter base and the media pro­tect­ing them, the tar­geted voter will never hear more than the words “Rick Perry Indicted”

If I was the GOP party chair in Texas and in every other state I would make Democ­rats go on record in sup­port of retain­ing Drunken DA’s. I would press every sin­gle demo­c­rat run­ning for office in the coun­try on this issue and make them own it.

Clos­ing thought: If I was Brett Kim­ber­lin I’d move to Travis County Texas and send in a Resume to the DA’s office ASAP. I sus­pect he would fit right in.

Update: An excel­lent ques­tion from Byron York:

and a fel­low on twit­ter notes a pos­si­ble rea­son why Democ­rats in Travis County cir­cled the wagons:

Hacker: He’ll have to resign.
Sir Humphrey: Alas, yes.
James Hacker: What will happen to him?
Sir Humphrey Appleby: Well, I gather he was as drunk as a lord. So, after a discreet interval, they’ll probably make him one.

While Powerline suggests conservatives should rally around Rick Perry after his indictment for abuse of power

 

Conservatives should respond to this indictment by rallying around Perry. The indictment is a bad joke, intended simply to generate negative publicity. As with the bogus DeLay indictment from the same source, years may go by before it is finally proved baseless. In the meantime, conservatives should stand behind Perry and denounce the politically-motivated machinations of Texas Democrats.

 

I have to disagree.

After all how DARE the Governor of Texas suggest that something has harmless as this:

or this


is grounds for resignation for a public official entrusted with enforcing our laws, including those on drunk driving.

It’s a clear cut case of discrimination against the sobriety challenged. Perhaps in addition to the indictment of Rick Perry for “coercive use of a veto” a lawsuit under the Americans with Disabilities Act might be in order as well!

All kidding aside in a world where the comic culture was not a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat party such a move would not be contemplated simply for the Saturday Night Live sketches it would produce, but with their low info voter base and the media protecting them, the targeted voter will never hear more than the words “Rick Perry Indicted”

If I was the GOP party chair in Texas and in every other state I would make Democrats go on record in support of retaining Drunken DA’s. I would press every single democrat running for office in the country on this issue and make them own it.

Closing thought: If I was Brett Kimberlin I’d move to Travis County Texas and send in a Resume to the DA’s office ASAP. I suspect he would fit right in.

Update: An excellent question from Byron York:

and a fellow on twitter notes a possible reason why Democrats in Travis County circled the wagons:
