Whose Special Interests?

Friday, 27 April 2001 12:00 AM

The chutzpah displayed by these class war warriors leaves one breathless. For these people to charge anyone else for being a tool of some unidentified "special interests" is to suggest they believe they can get away with this whopper without being challenged to: 1. Name the special interests or 2. Explain their own deep involvement with some of the most horrendously special of all the special interests.

For the most part they're correct. Instead of asking these poseurs to name those special interests and specify how Mr. Bush is favoring them, the media obligingly takes these scoundrels at their word and let's them get away with this hoary canard.

Nobody in the media, for example, asks Mr. Gephardt to name the special interests or to explain exactly how Mr. Bush is favoring them at the expense of all the rest of us non-special interest types.

More importantly, not one of them dares to ask Mssrs. Gephardt and Daschle to explain their obeisance to a sleazy horde of special interests who feed at the Democrat trough.

There is, for example, a self-effacing group that calls itself the Trial Lawyers of America. These servants of the poor and downtrodden live in absolute terror at the very mention of the dreaded tort reform monster - a beast from the darkness intent on vastly reducing those multi-million dollar contingency fees they extort from any entity with deep pockets who they can drag through the courts and portray as robber barons and despoilers of the common folk and deserving of harsh fiscal retribution for their crimes. Fiscal retibution 40 or 50 percent of which, bye the bye, will end up in their already overstuffed pockets.

Bowing to special interests? The Democrat socialist party would never rise to that height - they lie prone, groveling at the feet of America's legal dream teams and scooping up the trial lawyers' huge campaign contributions scattered before them like feed in a pig sty.

In the meantime, their Democrat lackeys on the Hill, bought and paid for by their fat campaign contributions, make sure that the public will continue to pay their share of the giant judgments they win through higher prices for the commodities in which their victims deal.

That, Mr. Gephardt and Mr. Daschle, is a real special interest.

Then there is the abortion industry, a gigantic multi-billion dollar empire of baby killers that continues to drown the pro-abortion party in the large amounts of the blood money that flows freely into Democrat coffers. This is one gravy train Mr. Gephardt and Mr. Daschle and their colleagues are now riding from which they hope never to have to disembark.

So deep in the pockets of the baby killers are the Democrats that officially the party can even close their eyes to the horror of partial birth abortion and support the grisly practice because that's what their allies in the abortion industry demand. (One wonders if the abortionists came out in favor of Professor Singer's dandy little idea of killing living infants long after they have survived the hazards in the womb and avoided being aborted, if the Democrat leadership would supinely bow to their demands and try to legalize infanticide.)

That, Mr. Gebhardt and Mr. Daschle, is a real special interest.

Then there are the teachers unions. Living in the shelter provided by their monstrous financial holdings that gives them the ability to lavishly finance Democrat candidates these unions can call the tune to which their captive politicians dance. Could this possibly be the reason why the Democrat leadership is bound and determined to add tens of billions of taxpayer dollars more in so-called federal aid to education programs that have already consumed mountains of billions without doing a single thing to help Johnny read, write, spell and do sums.

That, Mr. Gebhardt and Mr. Daschle, is a real special interest.

We must not forget big labor, the granddaddy of all the Democrats' favorite special interests. Without Big Labor's big bucks and expert campaign assistance, the Democrats wouldn't be able to conduct a credible political campaign, local, state or national. Needless to say, whatever big labor wants on Capitol Hill, the Democrats will move heaven and earth to give them.

That, Mr. Gephardt and Mr. Dashle, is a real special interest.

Now, I believe you were saying something about Mr. Bush being a tool of the special interests?
