Word of the Day: Hopium

From John Kass:

Just two weeks ago, inspector general Gerald Walpin, who watches over volunteer community programs, was fired. He investigated Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson , an Obama pal and former NBA star. Walpin alleged Johnson misused $850,000 in federal youth grants.

The use of political muscle may be prohibited in the mythic transcendental fairyland where much of the Obama spin originates, sprouting green and lush, like the never-ending fields of primo Hopium.

The culture of corruption is certainly growing pretty quickly for the Obama Administration. Just about none of his appointees pay taxes, lesser lights like Kevin Johnson are busy using Americorps money as a personal piggy bank, and he's either firing or hampering investigations into his crony's behavior.
