Hitting on political corruption

Posted by Lorgen Shadoufang

Philippines -- Former agriculture undersecreteary Jocelyn "Joc Joc" Bolante is being probed today by the Senate for the fertilizer fund scam.

Corruption in politics and economics is akin to using pick-up lines in a bar: The guy exposes himself to rejection with full awareness (supposedly) so that he is ready to be rejected; the politician who pockets public funds (and gives away some for personal gains) is aware that this sort of action can get his sorry @$$ in the dungeon sewers. So he is ready.

I mean, political offenders always have ready alibis for the $#it they dump on us. They have teachers for that: lawyers, political advisers, friendly friends...
Of course it's difficult to cross-examine someone who does not want to tell the truth.
