A Moral Quandary
CNN has an article on Dana Rohrabacher's
reaction to Jack Abramoff's situation.
The problem is that if I tore into Rohrabacher
, like I really want to do, in the back of my mind I would hear my Mother lecturing me about not making fun of people who are "slower" than the rest of us.
On the other hand I have worked with "slower" people for decades, because, frankly, ARC
provides some of the best work for your dollar when you use their services. Rohrabacher doesn't measure up to the standards of ARC.
Is this something that afflicts everyone who worked as a speechwriter for the Reagan White House, this disconnect from reality? To say that Abramoff is a good person who made some mistakes - the man pled guilty to multiple felonies for crying out loud, what does it take to get listed as a "bad person", other than being a Democrat?
