Influence Peddling of the Crassest Kind
sent me this link about the Carlyle group and James Baker peddling his wares, both of whom seem to be accountable to no one, with the note that reading it made her weary.
I completely understand her weariness because I'm right there myself.
I answered her with this:
Why does this seem like an, "I'm in bed with him, while he's in bed with her, while their wives are dining with his brother who is taking out his trash, while they're all pocketing the jewells and honing weapons for the next affair?"
After reading a bit more I can only think of James Baker as America's pimp, sleeping with the devil and then robbing her.
. I can sleep at night. How can he?
