The Relationship Between Easter Eggs and Condoms
The unvarnished truth that we should all be fascinated with would simply be this: These are only the instances that we know about. One has to wonder at the odds of discovering two events such as these as being the only instances to have occurred. How many other colorful White House "Easter Egg" bribes are yet to be found cleverly stashed amongst the political greenery? Veteran Journalist Larry Kane, who originated the Sestak story, had a number of fascinating things to say about the facts surrounding his breaking of the story.
Kane has indicated that a number of Reporters inside the beltway had talked of the Sestak-bribe rumours but none had reported on them. Mr. Kane, having also heard of the rumours was simply finishing up his interview with Sestak when, as an afterthought, he popped the question about the alleged White House attempted bribe only to find his jaw on the floor at Sestak's affirmative answer.
The next question that one should ask is simply the following: If the Media knew of the rumours and possible bribe attempt of Sestak by the White House back into mid 2009 then why did none of them report it until now? A question for the ages perhaps, but it would appear that the Media has continued its practice of protecting the White House rather than challenging Authority whenever possible. Just think of our Media now as a huge, colorful condom fitting snugly down over the White House. Ah, yes. You get the picture. But wait, perhaps as "figurative repayment" for numerous media protective services granted over the past 18 months, the White House has come out with yet another grand, albeit useless scheme --this time--one which might "save our Media."
